Useful Electronics Posters By Finn Magee (7 Photos)Designer Finn Magee has created some posters, which act as a simple home electronics like watches, audio speakers, lights. In this series, naturalist Chris Packham reveals the natural world in a way that you’ve never seen it before.
In this, his first truly global series, Chris will travel to some of the planet’s most awe-inspiring ecosystems, in order to reveal the real beauty of nature. He reveals that the key to the biodiversity of the rainforests is an almost constant climate. Chris travels to Borneo to see how some of the largest animals of the jungle, the orang-utan and the forest elephant are crucial in protecting this biodiversity, by spreading the precious seeds of jungle plants, far from their parent plants, to avoid attack by their predators.
He then travels to the Amazon to witness one truly amazing web of relationships centred around the Brazil nut tree.
Chris travels to the savannah of Kenya, the grasslands of Australia and the Cerrado of Brazil to witness how one of our most important ecosystems work – grasslands.
Chris travels to Kenya to see the surprisingly important role that rhinos play in making the grasslands fit for antelope. Finally, Chris returns to East Africa to reveal how one extraordinary ecosystem works – that of the acacia tree.
In this episode, Chris spends all of his time in the vast seasonal forests of North America. In the final part of the series, Chris makes an epic journey, from the mountain streams of Iceland to the deep of the Indian Ocean, via the wetlands of the Pantanal in Brazil and the coastal swamps of Bangladesh.
He shows us how the Pantanal wetland in Brazil, while being a land of the giants (the world’s biggest snake, water lily, rodent, otter – you name it, they all live here), actually couldn’t work without the humble apple snail.
Chris then sails out into the deep ocean to reveal how ocean currents rescue much of the lost nutrients that end up on the seabed. Having watched Secrets of our Living Planet I want people to shift their appreciation of life up a gear, to reach another plane in terms of understanding its complexity, its fragility and its almost unbelievable beauty. Understanding nature is not about knowing why birds sing, why bees buzz or why fish swirl in silvery shoals.
Secrets of our Living Planet was a challenging series to make on many levels; travelling to all the locations in a short shooting season, grappling with all the world’s climatic extremes and actually meeting the animals tested the team’s practical skills, and temperaments, to extremes.
I have always had a deep admiration and love for artist, Laurie Simmons and what I am seeing of her show that was on view at Salon 94 only makes me admire and love her more. Very unfortunately, I was not able to attend the Salon 94 exhibition, but I have had the immense pleasure of seeing her large and all-consuming photographs of dolls, puppets, ventriloquists, and domestic vignettes in dollhouses many times.
Although this doll is an alive, breathing human with blood flowing, there is always a hesitation to believe it is indeed real. Even in an age of PhotoShop, knowing something is a photograph, a document of an image, an action within a moment makes us believe in it.
The BBC documentary, Secrets of the Living Dolls, shows us that this is a lifestyle men around the world share and  love to do. Happiness is often challenging to find, so when those things, people, and drives make one happy, one should grab it like lungs grabbing oxygen. In Part Two, I will bring in a lot of my own experience with changing into another person through dress up as a child. For now, give Secrets of the Living Dolls a look … there is an excerpt on Huffington Post here. The first thing a visitor to the Wexner Center saw up through July 31, 2011, was a sign by the ticket desk warning us of the shock therein, the little trinkets of shock and awe that would overtake us in the galleries below us.
Oskar Kokoschka was a Renaissance man with a pulpy, pulsing passion running through his veins. Today You’re Going To Learn Many Things (27 Photos)They say that you learn something new every single day and today you're going to learn a lot.
For him, what is really beautiful about nature is not the amazing animals and plants that we share the planet with but the hidden relationships between them.


And he begins by tackling one of the biggest puzzles about the world’s rainforests: why do these places have such a bewildering variety of life, far greater than any other habitat on Earth? This allows insects and everything else that gorges itself on plants, to flourish all year round.
The ecosystem of this tree is too complex for it to be cultivated, so if you’ve ever eaten a Brazil nut, you too, are dependent on its ecosystem. The secret of grasslands is not what they have, but what they don’t have – and how they cope. In the Brazilian Cerrado, he sees how maned wolves get by on a low nitrogen diet by gardening their own fruit. A gecko, a giraffe, an ant and a monkey all depend on this tree for their survival … but what’s really wonderful is how these individuals and the acacia also depend on the actions of each other.
Here, he sees why the whole forest depends on the Autumnal activities of a flying squirrel. And on the way, he reveals how our most important ecosystems, overcome the daily challenge of living in medium that is constantly on the move. Thanks to this animal, the Pantanal is able to recycle nutrients and regenerate itself in all its amazing glory, every year. After the Pantanal, it seems amazing that anything at all can live in what appears to be a sticky, sulphurous ooze. These feed plankton blooms that attract our planets largest animals and –astonishingly – even influence the weather.
The Ladybird that tickled my palm and pitched on the tip of my finger was formatively perfect. It’s about being able to see the bigger picture, being able to see how all life is connected and, by unravelling the stories that link species, it’s also about developing a deeper more profound appreciation of life. But perhaps our most difficult quest was telling our story; concisely and comprehensibly explaining the remarkable complexity of nature, truly portraying its magnificence and its subtle nuances so that viewers can see Secrets of our Living Planet. To romp through some of the most amazing sub-plots and lead the viewers toward an awesome epiphany, to really explain how nature works. But I know that the fuel for such a psyche is a deeply felt emotional response to nature, it’s that which makes me set my alarm clock, shiver, sweat, weep and bleed to encounter the World’s wild things.
This exhibit, Kigurumi, Dollers and How We See, documents (beautifully as Simmons always does) the phenomenon of Kigurumi, or, “Dolling.” This is part of a cosplay subculture where participants wear full-body and head “skins” to become dolls, to become another, a fantasy, even another gender.
The colors interact so actively and they wholly enliven, further bringing this “doll” to pulsating vitality. Simmons says of her work, “My concern was to tell the most realistic lie I could.” Her work possesses a heightened realism while a viewer may feel as if there is this chance a coy little lie is being told straight to their face. I was able to watch most of this documentary when it was on YouTube (sadly, it has been removed) and only men participated in this particular kind of masking. Beyond this, no one should be judged when this happiness is found and coveted and locked down … if anything, those who find and possess such happiness are heroes deserving of admiration, not judgment or hate.
The whole feel and the overall idea of masking as shown in this documentary is familial: the masking community, a vibrant one online, as well as the family whose business it is to create these skins for people all over the world. The Rubber Doll World Rendezvous is an occasion for these men to be completely laid bare since they are among one another.
I will be using the play technique theories and projective identification theories of Melanie Klein. I grew up giving lives to inanimate objects — dolls, Barbies, action figures, teddy bears. But the result of her labor forces us to gaze into the darkness as if  into a  frozen-in-time scene of the macabre, a little fantasy place of dark dreams like tiny sparks of stars.

It involves a small rodent, called an agouti, which the tree needs to disperse and plant its nuts, and a rare orchid which attracts a rare male bee, which in turn attracts a female, the only creature capable of pollinating the very fussy Brazil nut flower. Not only do the inhabitants have to deal with the change, but the entire ecosystem has to transform itself – and it has to do this in perfect synchronicity. And uncovers how the activities of an obscure moth caterpillar in Spring can mean the survival of the Canadian lynx in winter. But, in fact, there is so much life here that this place supports a quarter of the world’s tiger population. I still see and feel this about living things, and revel in it, but I have also recognised that a far greater, far richer beauty exists in the dynamic harmony of complex communities of life. For me, understanding our planet’s secrets will never dull an appreciation of its unparalleled beauty because how it works is the most beautiful thing of all. The disrepair and dirt of the walls and floorboards behind her is a stark juxtaposition to the plasticized perfection of the doll. Thinking back on these important moments in my childhood gives me a close understanding, I think, of dolling and masking. One evening, with red wine overpowering him, Kokoschka beheaded the life-sized doll that could never replace his lost love, Alma Mahler.
Guilty for breaking out the… Read more… Cooking with FireworksIt's the 4th of July, so why not combine the grilling of meat and fireworks? In Australia, Chris encounters a weird cast of mini grassland characters, such as bandicoots and quols, driven to the edge of extinction by the introduction of alien species. Perhaps most amazing of all though, is how the great forests of British Columbia depend upon bears to catch salmon and take them into the forest, where their carcasses then fertilise its massive trees. This co-existence of all the little things defines the science of ecology and my ambition for Secrets of our Living Planet was to not only explain this but also to reveal to each viewer how astonishingly beautiful the result is.
Every destination and encounter had a purpose – to unravel a remarkable tale of incredible connections between these animals and their environments.
But this masking one identity to become a whole other goes beyond those who attend Anime and Manga conventions.
Watching them meet one another is truly moving and one of the highlights of Secrets of the Living Dolls. I know well the excitement of becoming someone else in dress-up play (only I was wearing costume jewelry and polyester satin, not rubber skins). Plants with barbs and poisons for defence; mammals, like the three-toed sloth which has evolved a way to digest leaves that nothing else can digest – even if it means taking days to digest them and moving as slow as, well, as a sloth.
You can’t grow without it, yet nitrogen-poor grasslands around the world support some of the world’s largest animals. Foxes and domestic cats have removed much of Australia’s natural grassland fauna and, as a consequence, the whole ecosystem has suffered. These animals dig burrows that not only supply oxygen and food to the roots of the mangroves; they also mix the toxic seawater with freshwater so that these trees can thrive. The idea of personae fascinates me as well and I believe it is very much part of this play.
And then there are the Heliconius butterflies, that have evolved defence mechanisms against the cyanide of poisonous vines – absorbing the poisons into their bodies to use as a defence against their own predators. Something that’s only possible, thanks to the ways that these ecosystems ‘manage’ their nitrogen. Chris reveals how evolutionary arms races in jungles have led to a riotous biodiversity of life. They pump seawater through their bodies at such a high rate that they are able to harvest enough nutrients, from the microscopic particles in the water.
