The Echigo-Tsumari Art Field is a fantastic and wonderfully impractical art space in Japan, where artists from around the world have scattered large-scale installations across 160 kilometers of land 다운로드.
In the midst of this art field is this set of giant colored pencils from Cameroon-born artist Pascale Marthine Tayou, titled “Reverse City:” enormous colored pencils hewn from trees dangle 2 meters above the ground, pointing down at the visitors below 다운로드.
More about this installation:
On each pencil is written the name of one of the countries of the world 다운로드. The giant pencils are variously colored; some are short, some are tall…Suspended upside-down, the points of this colorful city are aimed at human visitors who, looking up at it, feel both awed and threatened 다운로드.

All 786 known planets, to scale.
“This” (tiny gray box) is our solar system. The rest of these orbit other stars and were only discovered recently 다운로드. Most of them are huge because these are the kind we learned to detect first, but now we’re finding that small ones are actually more common.
We know nothing about what’s on any of them 냉탕에상어. With better telescopes that would change.
This is an exciting time.

We’re releasing a new “liquid” layout.
Flickr’s “liquid” design adjusts the photo page and image size based on the size of your browser window 영화 어메이징 스파이더맨2 다운로드. With that your photos will look great on a laptop screen, and look even more stunning on larger screens. With the new design:
- The biggest photo size is shown depending on your browser window
- There is absolutely no “upscaling”, and we try to avoid downsampling as much as possible 다운로드.
- The title and the sidebar are visible without scrolling on landscape oriented photos. (which are the vast majority of photos on Flickr.)

And, from Webmonkey:
Web developers, take note: Flickr’s new layout isn’t just eye-catching, it’s also somewhat responsively designed — adjusting to the myriad screens on the web today and displaying the best photo possible without clogging your tubes with huge photo downloads fusion 360. Flickr does stop short of scaling pages down to phone-size screens — for which there is a separate mobile website — but it resizes nicely to handle tablets 다운로드.
That’s right, Flickr is the latest (and perhaps the largest) website to embrace not just a mostly responsive design with a liquid layout and media queries, but also a responsive approach to images 다운로드.
Are we seeing a new development in design, the – “take into account the iPad” ?

An interactive Flash animation titled “Scale Of The Universe 2“, covering everything in the universe from the fabric of space-time to the estimated size of the universe, was posted earlier this year, and it is awesome. A month or so later, it went viral, but why…so popular 래빗스쿨 다운로드?
First, the actual scale of the universe is mind blowing as it spans 62 orders of magnitude (that’s multiplying 62 10′s together).
Second, the animation is very well produced and packed with information 철권6 iso 다운로드.
Third, it was created by a 14-year-old, Cary Huang, and his twin brother, Michael, who worked on it for a year and a half as a fun project…

It’s true, it is really fun to play with, especially with all the weird objects they use for comparisons 다운로드. I snapped a few screenshots below to show you some of them.
The first one is where the animation starts and the second is after scrolling out a bit 영화 장난스런 키스 다운로드. In both, you can see the size of a human in comparison to many objects (in the second one, there is a tiny human in the center).
In the last screenshot, you can see how California, Texas, and Italy are about the size of many moons and Pluto 윈도우 7 언어팩 다운로드!
