Photographers Create the Tiniest of Dramas on Your Dinner

If you’re playing with your mashed potatoes at dinner, it’s a safe bet you’re socially uncomfortable or preoccupied by something. Unless, of course, you’re with Pierre Javelle and Akiko Ida, in which case you’re probably helping them craft their next work of art. Their MINIMIAM series uses fruit, vegetables, and sweets as the edible backdrops for surprisingly engaging dramas played out by figurines like those used in model train sets.

Searching the Internet for evidence of time travellers

Here’s an interesting paper (PDF) by two physicists at Michigan Technological University who have come up with a practical methodology for finding time travellers through the internet.

Time travel has captured the public imagination for much of the past century, but little has been done to actually search for time travellers.

Here, three implementations of Internet searches for time travellers are described, all seeking a prescient mention of information not previously available.

The first search covered prescient content placed on the Internet, highlighted by a comprehensive search for specific terms in tweets on Twitter.

The second search examined prescient inquiries submitted to a search engine, highlighted by a comprehensive search for specific search terms submitted to a popular astronomy web site.

The third search involved a request for a direct Internet communication, either by email or tweet, pre-dating to the time of the inquiry.

Given practical verifiability concerns, only time travellers from the future were investigated.

Unfortunately no time travellers were discovered.

Although these negative results do not disprove time travel, given the great reach of the Internet, this search is perhaps the most comprehensive to date.

Steven Hawkings’ similar search (video) also provided negative results.

This Is What New York Looks Like From the Edge of a Skyscraper

Superheroes and window washers aside, most New Yorkers don’t spend much time leaning off rooftops 50 stories above the ground. But the view straight down is fairly spectacular.

It’s a side of the city most people never see in quite this way, which is one of the reasons Navid Baraty’s series of photos ended up on the walls of the Bowling Green subway station as part of the MTA’s Arts for Transit program.
