Nerd Monster Radio Episode 6 - A Slow Heart

Welcome to episode 6 of Nerd Monster Radio. This week I’m feeling a bit burnt out, not from music but from work and life in general and so I’ve decided to do slow set again.

The Shed | Jonas Gunerius Larsen | The Draftery

The project has a static starting point with the grid as an overarching principle that consumes the site, the infrastructure and organizing the totality. But then a dynamic process starts: Sheds and small cabins emerge within the system, representing plausible inhabitants, scenarios emerge and stories develop. Evolvement on the microlevel is explored in the plots, they become alive, some are abandoned and some survive. The stories come to life, public places occur, buildings transfom. The project grows out of this back and forth process, where the tiny dynamic parts challenges and even dissolves the boundaries of the assumed static grid. This pendulum is the energy in the evolution in the project, the unpredictable mutuality of part and whole

The best LA book of course made the list. The Day of the Locust is a must read

American medicine is the best in the world when it comes to providing high-tech care. If you have an esoteric disease, you want to be in the United States. God forbid you have Ebola, our academic medical centers are second to none. But if you have run-of-the-mill chronic diseases like congestive heart failure or diabetes, the system is not designed to find you the best possible care. And that’s what has to change.
