Over the course of ten years, Kagawa-based photographer Toshiteru Yamaji captured the special bond between Japanese pig farmer Otchan and his 1,200 pigs. As you can tell by these photos, he cared for each individual pig in a loving and caring way. In Yamaji’s book Pigs and Papa, watch as the cigarette smoking, beer drinking man becomes like their proud papa as he reads the newspaper to the pigs and plays music to them on his guitar.

Cultural Centre and Library ‘Eemcentrum’ Neutelings Riedijk Architects

The Eemhuis is a cultural centre that combines the city library, regional archives, school of arts and exhibition spaces. The vertical stacking of these programs enhances the continuity of the public domain into the building. At the ground floor, the public square becomes the foyer of the exhibition centre and gradually steps up to form a terraced library. On the top of the stairs the library spills into a vast open space overlooking the city. Above it hovers the archive volume that forms the ceiling of this space. The three departments of the arts school (theatre & dance, visual arts and music) are each expressed separately as cantilevered beams that crown the complex.”

Tatsuo Miyajima - Life (Bodies Without Organs) (2012)

"Miyajima, one of Japan’s foremost artists, has been producing conceptual pieces that are at heart technological: the numbers 1–9, twitching or flashing on interconnected LED counters, are the lexicon that he employs to speak on subjects as vast as time, holocaust and eternity.

‘0’ never appears in his work, for that number represents finality, or death, and his art – in accord with the key Buddhist tenets that are vital to it – is about life’s continuum of change.”

Kerozen

The project from Studio Kerozen was realized by Jean Charles Debroize, retouching designer and typographer from Rennes, France. He transformed members of his own team into typography letters. Not some nice little figures from sesame street, but some hairy monsters that will follow you in your dreams. He shaped each letter with modeling clay and created the flesh tones in photoshop.

He shaped each letter with modeling clay, then created flesh-based tones in Photoshop based off of the design team members who agreed to have their features turned into a letter to spell out the company name.

Debroize explains, “We shot pictures of the letters and of the design team’s faces. Then I made a mapping of skin textures on the letters with Photoshop and added the hair and the eyes. It was not a problem to show an unflattering image of us. We laughed a lot making this.”

Funny idea as we think, although you won’t get friends in your company by making that without saying that you will publish it to thousands of people.
