For over 15 years, Guy Tarrant has been gathering confiscated toys and other artifacts from 150 different British schools. He now has an exhibit called “Resistant Materials” which is currently on display at Victoria & Albert Museum of Childhood in London.
According to the artist, the display is meant to emphasize the resistance and opposition between rebellious youth and the strict academic environment they find themselves in.
I knew it! I. Flippin’. Knew. It.
I want my POGS back Ms. Welch!! <—– Oh yeah… half an hour rummaging through old boxes looking for my year books (which I couldn’t find), a call back to mom in Texas, and her search through old report cards later… I remember your name! Devil Woman! I’m sure you spent countless hours playing with them while guzzling back boxed wine and petting your army of evil cats.
Thinking back now, I think there are just some people who become teachers to torture children. I remember how Ms. Welch told the class, “You all know Santa is really your parents” and that one kid Brian, who was super sheltered, freaked out. Of course the rest of us all knew, but we found out the proper way — by finding our parents arranging the gifts under the tree, LIKE WE WERE SUPPOSED TO.
I want those POGS BACK!
♩♪♫♬ Oh POGS… Well you came and you gave without taking… And Ms. Welch took you away, oh POGS ♪♫♬
We usually have plenty of great stuff leftover from our Geekly Roundups, so we’ve decided to throw them into a post. Starting with this awesome compilation of all the Doctor Who Prisoners Of Time comic book covers.
This is why he doesn’t have his own movie. [via smbc comics]
Who hasn’t had the desire just to be someone else for a while? Dressing up is a way of creating an alter ego and a second skin which one’s behaviour can be adjusted to. Regardless of the motivating factors which cause somebody to acquire a costume, the main principle remains the same: the civilian steps behind the mask and turns into somebody else…. ‘Just the two of us’ deals with both: the costumes and the people behind them.”
I think his images are pretty amazing! One thing Pichler discovered: “In the beginning I thought I would get to know a lot of nerds, but I discovered that most of these people have settled lives. They have families and they are integrated into social life…” What do you guys think?
A team of researchers have recently developed some straight-up wizardry software that extracts 3-D editable objects from a simple 2-D image.
The researchers credit the combination of “the cognitive abilities of humans with the computational accuracy of the machine”. I really hope this software becomes available to the masses. Imagine how quickly you and your mouse could create editable 3-D models.
Is it me or does this sound like the beginning of a movie plot? Either way… Prepare Yourself.
