Just ushered in the last year of my second decade photographing the moon rising above the east London skyline whilst listening to the Windmills of Your Mind with a glass of red wine in hand. I thank London for the clearing the clouds away and off the night time canvas for tonight. Text post on account of the fact that my camera cable is in another county.

As an aside, I genuinely discovered my first white/grey hair yesterday.

Efterklang have started a radio station. It is broadcasting from Copenhagen and it is called The Lake.

The Lake is a place for Music and Sounds.

Broadcasting from Copenhagen to the world, The Lake is on air 24 hours daily at www.thelakeradio.com. The new radio platform is initiated and curated by Kasper Vang (artist), Jan Høgh Stricker (radio journalist) together with Mads Brauer, Casper Clausen and Rasmus Stolberg from the band Efterklang (4AD).

Sometimes The Lake hosts longer shows, mixtapes and live broadcasts.

The Lake aims to be the anti-thesis of commercial radio. Its function is to serve as a platform for experimental and inspiring music and sounds, without playlists, boundaries or limitations. The carefully curated library spans all decades of recorded audio, crossing geographical borders, languages and genres.”

Cloud Piano by David Bowen.

This installation plays the keys of a piano based on the movements and shapes of the clouds. A camera pointed at the sky captures video of the clouds. Custom software uses the video of the clouds in real-time to articulate a robotic device that presses the corresponding keys on the piano. The system is set in motion to function as if the clouds are pressing the keys on the piano as they move across the sky and change shape. The resulting sound is generated from the unique key patterns created by ethereal forms that build, sweep, fluctuate and dissipate in the sky.

Long-Exposure Spy Cameras Will Capture Berlin’s Growth For The Next 100 Years - PSFK, via Dan W.

Artist Jonathon Keats has designed a surveillance unit that has a century-long exposure time, so it can capture the gradual change of a city over the years. Working with the Team Titanic gallery, the unauthorized urban project will see 100 of these Century Cameras hidden all across Berlin next week. The cameras serve not only as a way to uniquely document the passing of time, but also as a way to hold present-day Berliners accountable for their city’s future.

“The first people to see these photos will be children who haven’t yet been conceived. They’re impacted by every decision we make, but they’re powerless. If anyone has the right to spy on us, it’s our descendants.”
