Why the electric car fails and failed. 1916:

Written in 1916:

The fundamental reasons why the electric car has not attained the popularity it deserves are (1) The failure of the manufacturers to properly educate the general public regarding the wonderful utility of the electric; (2) The failure of [power companies] to make it easy to own and operate the electric by an adequate distribution of charging and boosting stations. The early electrics of limited speed, range and utility produced popular impressions which still exist.

Sunblock, is a UV-index for your Iphone that will help you take care of your skin and protect it from the sun.

Sunblock helps you take the guesswork out of protection yourself and your children from the dangerous UV radiation that grows every year.

No longer do you need to guess if you have the right amount of SPF in your sunlotion for the activities your are planning. Simply open Sunblock, read the current UV-index – adjusted for your environment – and you will immediately see if your chosen SPF is enough for the day.

Sunblock automatically determines your position and altitude via the Global Positioning System, it then downloads satellite data for your specific location and tells you what the current UV index is.

We want to inform about a side project we are involved in: mainly by Søren L. Hougesen and Thomas Øjerson.
The idea behind the project is to put more focus on recycling and try to change the way people look at trash.

What we do is that we find trash of all kinds and bring it home. It could be an old lamp or a toilet seat, anything goes. After we have cleaned the object and painted it, we put it back in the street as an art piece.

What happens with the object from here, we will let you decide. Should it have a place in your home or should it just go back to the garbage can where it came from? Its up to you to decide.

Teaching students to work with art in Germany

We have recently returned from a week in Flensburg, Germany where we and a group of student explored the possibilities of digital art.
The students at the school had a theme centered around the 7 deadly sins , they divided in groups and each group chose a deadly sin to express in art. Some classes worked exclusively with digital art, some with drama others with sculptural art & cinematography.

We’ll post this project to our website in full when everything has been produced and printed on canvas.

But for now you can enjoy a few images of the lessons and the jaunt to the scrap yard.
