Visual Culture Wednesday!

* Another round of 2011 in pictures, parts one and two. Part three posts tomorrow.

* 12 ancient paintings containing surprising evidence of aliens. You had me at hello.

* The bodies of most of the models H&M features on its website are computer-generated and “completely virtual,” the company has admitted. H&M designs a body that can better display clothes made for humans than humans can, then “dresses” it by drawing on its clothes, and digitally pastes on the heads of real women in post-production.

* And the bastards have gone and ruined The Lorax. The fiends.

It Can’t Happen Here

It Can’t Happen Here: The Nazca caused their own collapse when they cleared their forests in order to make way for agriculture, thus exposing the landscape to wind and flood erosion, according to a study published in the journal Latin American Antiquity.

the triumphant return of culturemonkey

leave a comment »

As hinted earlier tonight in the post on the water crisis, I’ve put up a longish post on ecology over at culturemonkey. It’s the first of two or three posts on zizecology motivated (and excerpted from) one of the papers I wrote this semester.

I’ve tried to excise the more boring parts, but I can’t promise that the result won’t still be boring.
