I Could Live Here ...

Yes indeed ... concrete & wood. Second on my list. First? Still the sea containers.

"Cramming a new residential building in a super-dense Tokyo neighborhood—and doing so with aplomb—would pose a challenge for even the most seasoned architecture firm. But if anyone is up for the task, it’s Key Operation. (The Japanese practice once designed a home based around the movements of a client’s cat, for goodness’ sake!) Not to say that Yotsuya Tenera, Key Operation’s minimalist concrete-and-metal-bar apartment block built in 2010 in the quiet Tokyo neighborhood of Yotsuya, was a walk in the park."

How Sad

Not sad for the woman, but sad for the people judging her.

Memphis-based photographer Haley Morris-Cafiero’s series Wait Watchers freezes judgment in time.

"While creating an image for my Something to Weigh series, I decided to photograph myself sitting alone on the Times Square stairs to capture my solitude in a busy crowd. After developing the film, I noticed that a man was standing behind me being photographed by an attractive blonde woman. Rather than pose for her camera, he was sneering at me behind my back.

Five minutes later and at another location, another man turns his back to gawk at me while I am photographing myself sitting at a café table. I have always been aware of people making faces, commenting and laughing at me about my size. I now reverse the gaze and record their reactions to me while I perform mundane tasks in public spaces.—Haley Morris-Cafiero"

Totie Rocks

Lack of general knowledge: I have never heard of Totie Fields, American comedienne in the 60s and 70s. She's such a sex symbol.

Porn Free Porn

Elizabeth Moran photo series 'The Armory': film sets at Kink.com, an online pornography company housed in The Armory Building in San Francisco. Porn sets without people. I you wouldn't have known this background story, would you look at them differently?

"“I like that you know something is off even though it feels familiar,” says Moran. “The bedroom kinda looks like my bedroom, the kitchen sorta looks my kitchen. It has a kind of off-putting normalcy.”"

The 'normalcy' in these settings do make sense. Unconsciously people recognize it as could-be-my-house.

A Day In The Life Of A Squirrel

Cute! It reminds me of the postcards my grandmother used to send me, the ones with the seemingly stuffed animals.

"Nancy Rose created the series 'A Day In The Life Of A Squirrel' for fun, she features Mr Peanuts, and sometimes Mrs P, and their adventures.
To create the images, she buys props, places peanuts on a set, and patiently waits for the little animals to look for their peanuts and get into position before taking several shots."

Frank Lloyd Wright's Millard House For Sale

I wish I had the money. Originally $ 17.000, now $ 4.495.000.

"Part of a venture into modular housing by the venerable architect, 1923's Millard House (which Wright himself referred to as "La Miniatura"—a label to describe his fondness for the house) was created from concrete blocks, each featuring a carved cross and square pattern, in a style he believed would lower the cost of home construction while retaining delicacy and beauty. The 4,230-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-bath home—currently on sale through Crosby Doe Associates for $4,495,000—offers a rare opportunity to lay claim to a unique piece of Wright history. The house, located in Pasadena, California, was originally built for book dealer Alice Millard for $17,000. Wright once said, "I would rather have built this little house than St. Peter's in Rome.""
