Cool Cardboard Sculptures
German artist Bartek Elsner has one thing to say about the project, "Internet Killed the Analog Stuff!"
I'm a huge fan of any artist that works with cardboard, it is such a humble and eco-friendly material.
I remember these objects very well from my childhood....do you?
Imagine if There Was No Warning Before a Hurricane
It wasn't until the 1950's that the very first forecast models were developed for predicting the path of a hurricane.
Prior to that time, there was really no warning at all.
In fact, unless a storm was witnessed by a passing ship, airplane, or happened to sweep over an island, there was no way to know a storm was brewing.
In the 1940's and 50's, aircraft reconnaissance and very basic computer technology were used to learn about storms.
Of course, these beginning forecast models were not always reliable and scientists are always working to create more precise methods for predicting the path of a big storm.

Eskimo Street Art in the Arctic
Iqualuit is the capital of Nunavut, Canada and home to a diverse mix of people including many Native Inuits.
Here in the United States, we commonly refer to the Inuits as Eskimos.
Check out this awesome mural created by Jonathon Cruz on the Iqualuit's City Hall...I love it!!
"Qulliq Magic Brightest! section of Iqaluit's City Hall concrete wall mural by artist Jonathon Cruz, Nunavut, Canada. Qulliqs are the traditional seal oil-fired stone implement combination of stove, heater and lamp of the Inuit. The modern equivalent would be a generator-powered oven/range, furnace and lights. Simple, small and portable versus a room full of appliances, go figure." Photo by Mike Beauregard
