Vertical Space!

In 2009, 2 brothers from Brazil decided to live on the outside of a building in Rio's Old Center. They slept, ate and worked 33 ft. up in the air for 12 hours a day for 4 months. They wanted to be a living art installation.

This is something I wouldn't mind trying. Looks like fun!



In Pakistan in 2010, the flooding caused spiders to climb up trees to escape from the water. The result of this shows nature as a true artist. People just cant make things that are this beautiful.

The spiders cocooned the trees in their webs, which locals say they have never seen before. They've also noticed less mosquitos then usual. They think that the mosquitos are getting caught in these webs, reducing the risk of Malaria. I guess there is always a silver lining.


Space Green

Agriculture is one of the oldest and most pervasive human impacts on the planet. But while driving through the seemingly endless monotony of wheat fields in Kansas may give you some insight into the magnitude of the change to the landscape, it doesn't compare to the view from above. 
When seen from space, those same boring wheat fields are transformed into a strange and even beautiful pattern.

The first two images are of Brazil, The crops include sunflowers, wheat, potatoes, coffee, rice, soybeans and corn.

Fields in Kansas, mostly corn.

Sudan, The crops are fed by thousands of miles of canals and irrigation ditches.

Bolivia, the star-shaped patterns pictured above are radial soybean fields.

Egypt, The Nile river supports most of the land. The green along with the darker brown soil and scattered grey urban areas show up in clear contrast with the surrounding dry landscape.
