Friday links: things to look at

Not many words in the links today; instead, some nice things to look at, from all of us at BERG.

Jim Denevan makes gigantic freehand drawings in the earth.


More geometric patterns: this time, what happens when you take a long-exposure of a Roomba in the dark.

Eric Testroete made his own head out of paper for Halloween. Only larger.

    Here’s a lovely counterpoint to Denevan’s salt flat geometries:

    In the desert 100 miles northeast of Los Angeles is a suburb abandoned in advance of itself—the unfinished extension of a place called California City. Visible from above now are a series of badly paved streets carved into the dust and gravel, like some peculiarly American response to the Nazca Lines (or even the labyrinth at Chartres cathedral). The uninhabited street plan has become an abstract geoglyph—unintentional land art visible from airplanes—not a thriving community at all.
