Though research has emerged linking excessive social media use with anxiety and depression, our collective internet addiction shows no sign of slowing down.

Richard Tuttle’s I Don’t Know · The Weave of Textile Language is the latest large-scale work to be shown in the Tate Modern’s (@tategallery) Turbine Hall. The American artist’s largest work to date, the piece measures 12 meters (39 feet) in height and covers more than half of the former electrical supply hall in red and marigold fabrics on plywood.
The sculpture focuses on the importance of materials and textiles in Tuttle’s work and is part of a larger exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery (whitechapelgallery) in London surveying five decades of his career.
“For a lot of people, art serves as a security—‘I know what I like,’” Tuttle explains. “But it is quite possible to have the other kind of people for whom art is an adventure. For me art is a kind of food, a food for the spirit.”
The exhibition at the Tate will be on show until April 6, 2015, and until December 14, 2014 at the Whitechapel Gallery.

One of the problems with Braille is that it’s typically printed in specialist books aside from the copies created for sighted people, meaning that those with sight difficulties can’t borrow their friends’ books and need to seek out the bookstores and libraries that cater for them. In the past, we’ve seen projects such as Thailand’sMr. Light and Mr. Dark — which uses special typography to enable the blind and non-blind to read the same book. Now the FingerReader initiative from MIT provides visually impaired readers with a wearable ring that can scan written text and read it out loud. READ MORE…
Guys. Science has developed a talking ring that allows the blind to read books.
This is not only amazing, it is the stuff of fairy tales.
