In 70 years humans eat 1,400 times their weight

An "illustration from Fritz Kahn's encyclopediatic series of books 'Das Leben des Menschen; eine volkstümliche Anatomie, Biologie, Physiologie und Entwick–lungs–geschichte des Menschen' (The Life of Humans: A Popular Anatomy, Biology, Physiology and a History of the Development of Humans) titled 'In 70 Years the Man Eats 1,400 Times its Weight' which purports to show the amount of food the average man eats in 70 years as train cars full of food."

The Man as Industrial Palace: Animated

"The visual crossover between industrialization and science in Fritz Kahn's artwork demonstrates surprisingly accurately how human nature became culturally encoded by placing the knowledge in an industrial modernity of machine analogues. He produced lots of illustrations that drew a direct functional analogy between human physiology and the operation of contemporary technologies. Therefore, by illustrating the body as a factory, Kahn was able to relate the body's complex organic interior to the industrialized space so common in society during that period of time (the poster was created in 1926).

From the moment on that Henning Lederer got to know Kahn's poster 'Man as Industrial Palace' in 2006, he had the idea to animate this complex and strange way of explaining the functions of a body. He wanted to continue Fritz Kahn's act of replacing a biological with a technological structure by transferring this depiction with the help of motion graphics and animation."

(Henning M. Lederer)

Deviant Desires: Fetish Map

"The human sexual imagination is a vast landscape, a sprawl of inter–connected suburbs and neighbourhoods, a web of ideas. There are many ways to chart the routes in this new world. Connections are everywhere, and you will surely find some that I have not. As the internet grows and the various realms of sexual play expand, I'm certain that we'll see many more sites added to this map. Welcome aboard and enjoy your journey into deviance."

Chernobyl legacy: photographic essay with audio commentary

"On April 26th, 1986, Chernobyl's Reactor No. 4 unleashed a thoroughly modern plague that emptied cities, condemned entire regions, and seeped invisibly into the bodies of those exposed to its destructive presence."
(Paul Fusco, Magnum In Motion)

[Photographer Paul Fusco faces the dark legacy of Chernobyl, focusing on the horrifying human consequences of the event that is now 20 years in the past. Fusco's work forces us to remember an important nightmare that we would forget at the peril of our morality and our future.]

Fig.1 Photographic essay (with audio commentary) created by Paul Fusco about the human cost of the Chernobyl disaster.
