day to day images posted as and when I want
Comments:People make most interesting photo subjects, whether portrayed as bluntly real or in more abstract ways. Off course, the impact of any photo goes beyond its subject – what one sees through his or her eye is the other half of the magic. And just look what Paul sees in the sky! Online for just over a year, today's pick provides some amazing day to day views of one guy's world...

photography, graphic-graffiti, and motion works from design student Alexander Hahn (Flash)
"Now I'm in love with photography, computers and my girl!" Alexander Hahn started dabbling in graffiti 10 years ago when he was 13 and is currently studying graphic design at the Braunschweig School of Art in Germany. If you want a glimpse of this young man's personality, his short film me, myself and i will do it. His photography is just as colorful – great Holgas, long-exposures, and portraits! And that graffiti thing I mentioned sure turned in to something special – "It gotta have style... that's all!"

still trying to connect you to our 9th-dimensional architectural space
"ICOLS loves you." In all the years I've been doing this coolstop thing, I don't think I've ever worked so hard (and enjoyed it so much) trying to come up with a simple description for today's pick. After about 2 hours exploring countless pages, I finally settled for something said in a truly amusing .mp3 linked on Founder and Director Suzanne Treister's bio page. She founded the corporation back in 2000. Did I just say corporation? When's the last time you remember me reviewing a corporation's website? Okay, so it's a corporation, but not just any corporation. Where else you gonna find a Department of Revolutionary Nostalgia, a Local Unit of Missing Links, and an International Department of Local Aesthetics? Among the long list of staff, you'll find a Voodoo Therapist, Tea Person, Psychic Architect, and Guilt Adjuster. You'll also find an assortment of artworks and deep thoughts and even a picture of the office each person occupies. A little activism and art plus accounts of organizational events all over the world – total entertainment for the easily amused, yet ample fodder for those who like to think...;~))

web design and other areas of personal interest
If you ever wondered what a house would look like built entirely with CSS, here ya go. That's just one of Chris' many code demos. You might recall seeing his CSS Pencils early last year. Besides the interesting demos and a number of articles related to web design, Chris also presents what he calls his "amateur photography and artwork" – cool stuff, including wallpapers and The September Project...
