Self Replicating Robotic Cubes.
The video of it copying itself is strangely hypnotic...

This week I have been mostly....

... destressing and re-discovering the joys of webland.

- design a t-shirt, submit it, and if enough people vote for it, they'll rip you off and print it. Genius.

Seek and Ye Shall Find...

Just where is Jesus these days? http://www.whereisjesus.com/
Here's a hint- imagine a religion where people worship Morris Gibb, and you may just be able to pick out the the redeemer amongst the hoards of sinners.

Won't get fooled again...


Published in the Sunday Herald, 3rd June 2001, Peter Howson's depiction of our glorious leader.
The portrait was submitted as part of a feature commissioning Scottish artists to convey their reactions to British politics and the upcoming general election.

Howson commenting on the piece in 2001:

"The impression I get is that he is starting to look very old in comparison to the fresh faced photos of him when he first came to power. His hair's gone and he's got more lines round his face. Though he's still got that kind of pixie, slightly mad look.

"I tend to make people look quite aggressive but there's actually not much aggression in this drawing. There's a kind of look of panic".
