Creepy gifs by Bill Domonkos / Flow of London, art in the streets / The Institute of Isolation is an art film by Lucy McRae about the challenges to human biology created by space travel / tiny house in the (American) woods / tiny house on the Essex coast / Big Black live, 1986.

Two related things: Helsinki wants to eliminate car ownership by 2025 and hyperloop considers a Helsinki-Stockholm track / also related, Calgary versus the car: the city that declared war on urban sprawl / why move to Canada?
