Designed by Scott Parenteau for Maker Faire 2013, an event created by Make magazine to “celebrate arts, crafts, engineering, science projects, and the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset,” the “Walking Pod” was inspired by Parenteau’s love for Fuller’s dome and Theo Jansen’s imaginative Strandbeest machines.
FIREWATCH SERIES BY MATS PETERSSON
Photographer Mats Petersson - “Firewatch is my latest project. I’m not a nature photographer, per se, but an opportunity came one day for me to visit a controlled forest fire not far from my home. Fire, of course, is one of the ancient worlds’ “four elements.” No forest without fire: no life without fire: no world without fire. Once man learned to create and control fire, civilization developed. Man could cook and eat foods that were previously impossible. Fire was light, warmth and safety. Like many others, I have always been fascinated with fire.”
Wind turbines like these are seen all over the Netherlands. Often we have no real sense of perspective as to just how large these structures truly are.
