Taking a line for a walk

The Longest Route You Can Sail in a Straight Line Without Hitting Land / a wealth of imagery by M.C.Escher (via Kottke / notes on the Satanic panic / Dead end thrills and Berduu, the art of the video game screenshot (via MeFi) / compare and contrast: a survey of London’s iceberg superhomes versus two thoughtful essays on Japanese architecture from City of Sound’s Dan Hill, the Moriyama House by the Office of Ryue Nishizawa and House NA by Sou Fujimoto Architects (via MeFi. And Dan is now writing almost exclusively at Medium, although his original archives are something to behold) / also sort of related, Google Street View Can Reveal How Your Neighborhood Votes, based partly on correlating car choices to demographics. Not sure we entirely believe this synopsis: ‘Toyota and Honda vehicles are strongly correlated with Asian neighborhoods…. Meanwhile, black neighborhoods are more strongly associated with Buick, Oldsmobile, and Chrysler vehicles. The presence of pickup trucks, Volkswagens, and Aston Martins indicate mostly white neighborhoods.’
