Architect and artist Abeer Seikaly has designed a nomadic shelter that stores solar energy, collects rainwater, and is lightweight and folds up for easy transportation. Struck by the growing number refugees and natural disasters that displace millions each year Seikaly sought out to create a solution. With reflection on our historic nature of being nomadic creatures with the desire of settlement Seikaly found inspiration in the traditional art form of weaving and the natural interlocking of snake skin. This ingenuity on a sustainable structure awarded Seikaly the 2013 Lexus Design Award. I am completely inspired by the beauty in this invention, physically and by the thought of what it could mean to humans across the Earth.
A gathering of inspiration, thought experiments, and injections of where life is art.

This is the last McDonald's burger ever sold in Iceland. After an economic collapse in Iceland in 2009, McDonald's was forced to shut all of it's doors. Hjörtur Smárason purchased the last burger as a sovereign, now the burger sits as a preservation experiment. Looking just as it did the day it was sold, the last McDonald's ever sold in Iceland sits on display at the Bus Hostel Reykjavik. Watch the live webcam feed on this last meal here.
