"No, there exists a stranger, even more profoundly conspiracist conception of the Bigfoot: the psychic Sasquatch, a paranormal, inter-dimensional creature. As you might imagine, this causes a huge rift within the already fractured Bigfoot (BF) community. Those who support the thesis of a paranormal Bigfoot are profoundly marginalized, barred from discourse, and generally scorned in much the same way that the non-Bigfoot community — i.e. the scientific mainstream, popular consciousness, you know, normal people — scoffs at the very existence of a hairy woodland ape.
Before we delve too deeply into the philosophical nuances raised by this divided community, we should perhaps discuss the psychic Sasquatch. There are several models, of course, but they all share some central precepts: the Bigfoot is of greater-than-human intelligence and endowed with an acute psychic ability. He is elusive, not because of his scarcity or well-documented ability to hide away in the woods: he is elusive because he has the capacity to dematerialize, to pass through wormholes from this dimension to any other, parallel dimension. Furthermore, and perhaps most outrageously, he is in cahoots with friendly extraterrestrials, or UFOs. The UFOs serve as scouts, protecting the interdimensional Bigfoot from leering human eyes.
Furthermore, according to the telepathic field work conducted by one of the theory’s most vocal proponents,Jack “Kewaunee” Lapseritis, the Bigfoot race was brought to Earth (“seeded”) by their friends, the Star People, long before we ever came around.”
Papers for Characters
Spanish design studio Atipo has created a collection of minimalistic movie posters that are made from paper.
Photographer Martin Klimas’ breaking porcelain figurines.
“From a height of three meters, porcelain figurines are dropped on the ground, and the sound they make when they hit trips the shutter release. The result: razor-sharp images of disturbing beauty—temporary sculptures made visible to the human eye by high-speed photography technology. The porcelain statuette bursting into pieces isn’t what really captures the attention; the fascination lies in the genesis of a dynamic figure that replaces the static pose. In contrast to the inertness of the intact kitsch figurines Klimas started out with, the photographs of their destruction possess a powerfully narrative character.” (martin-klimas.de)

Fast Company: "MIT iPhone App Makes You Intimate With A Stranger," in which some things I say are put in some context, and other things I say are removed from it.
This isn’t for general release yet - there’s a lot left to work out - but we are taking signups for the early, crashy, iPhone version right now. Will be a slow and deliberate rollout, because we’re looking to learn as we go.
