Quite often I am convinced that Internet, along with inherent madness and information age anxieties, is also a medium to experience and communicate newer thoughts and imaginations. This morning I spotted three interesting reads over the internet. The first one shows Impressive Driftwood Horse Sculptures by James Doran-Webb. Doran is a british-born artist who makes driftwood life size horse sculptors. One should definitely watch these horses coming live with oceans waves. The second one is a compilation of photographs taken by a russian women. She captures moments of engagement of her kids with animals on her farm. The pics are simply amazing and I really loved the one where one of her kid leans against the shoulders of a mastiff dog. The third one is a little specific to me as a designer. It belong to Wired News Archives. It is a commentary on the film ‘her‘ suggesting how interestingly the movies is not about technology but about people.
Here is an interesting read from Wired. The link mentions various patents registered against the name of celebrities. I find this quite interesting for two reasons. First, all of these patents are filed by people who are not scientists. Rather these are the people who were musicians, cameraman, performers and other creative professionals. This asks us to extend our thought of seeing things so narrowly- a kind of skepticism that we had acquired in an age of specialization. Second, all of these patents are so lucidly illustrated or explained that it kind of highlights the simplicity of thought. It also gives one an idea that patents could also be about very simple ideas provided they are novel, illustrative and communicable.
