Huge numbers of seated figures were made out of ice by Brazilian artist Néle Azevedo. Installations involving the ice figures last until the final miniature has melted.

Out Of Print 

Fun project creates computer-generated random headlines scrambled from news feeds which are then printed with traditional techniques and sent via Twitter:

The invention of the printing press is the finest example of how a shift in technology can change the way we communicate. In the 21st century, digital technology has become the defining force shaping society; changing the way we live, interact and consume information.

With the growth of digital media we are now faced with unprecedented levels of data. We find ourselves at a saturation point. By attempting to consume ever more, we end up understanding less. How do we make sense of all the information we consume and not get lost in the process? Through the use of traditional printing techniques we explore this question.

By using live online news feeds we are building a digital application that generates seemingly random headlines; these will then be printed using a custom-built letterpress. The prints will form a growing collection exhibited as part of the installation.

Life After People, documentary. 
A what-if scenario: Earth population = zero.
Narrator: "What will happen if every human on Earth disappeared?" 
Man’s attempt at immortality from mummification, cryogenic, art to infrastructure, and what they’ll look like 100 million years from now without humans to maintain them.  The special effects look so impressive and realistic that you won’t need your imagination on this show. Meanwhile in outer space, a satellite orbits the earth, with some preserved DNA of people like Stephen Hawking and a playboy model, to be discovered by aliens.
Great, thousands of years from now, aliens will reconstruct humans that will either be paraplegics or bimbos. (Oops, that wasn’t politically correct!)

The 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards (2012). What stood out the most this time was the celebrities’ ability (or attempt?) to laugh at themselves, as if reminding us small people, they’re just as small. (Just with more awards.) It was a fun show.
