Rolling Sculptures

As their website states: "The BMW Art Car Collection is a series of BMW production models transformed from automobile to art by some of the world's foremost artists." Simple. 'Rolling Sculptures,' someone else labeled them. I am a particular fan of The Alexander Calder model. More on art cars in a more expanded sense, here.

Jason Oddy - Playas

An old mining town in New Mexico was bought by the US Government to be used as a training camp for anti-terrorist activities. Jason Oddy, exhibiting at Photofusion in London, documented this ghost town with furnished houses, school buses and doctor´s surgeries. A film set for the war on terror.

People that used to live and work in this town were used as extras during training; mine workers re-inventing themselves as fictional terrorists, setting up bombs in school buses, kidnapping hostages and learning arabic. The new economy of the Western world, a society of service providers, where no goods are produced.

Hot Chip - Colours (DFA remix)

A somehow atypical remix for DFA of an average Hot Chip track. It´s good.
