… I hope they found a less time-intensive method of reproducing things than transcribing them into Minecraft books like medieval monks in scriptoria …
Have you ever met Minecrafters? They will spend hours upon hours doing anything, even the most mind-numbing tasks imaginable. And the ones who don’t will hack the shit out of the game to get anything done.
The Uncensored Library is a massive international collaboration between Blockworks, Reporters Without Borders, MediaMonks, and the German marketing company DDB.
24 builders from 16 countries used 12.5 million blocks to build a neoclassical building with several gardens and decorative features like a rotunda featuring flags of the world, or a massive statue of a clenched fist holding an ink pen.
It houses information from all 180 countries in the press freedom index, with special halls dedicated to information from countries where reporters are persecuted. They include Russia, Mexico, Egypt, Vietnam, and Saudi Arabia.
The Library server itself is under 24/7 guard against unauthorized modification. It’s also free to download in single-player mode.
Please visit their site for more information, including free downloads, a video tour, and a shop.
theres a hole in the wall in my brothers’ room because they were fighting (for fun not anger) in there once and one of them knocked the other into the wall so hard his head made that hole, so they put two small skeletons in there for decoration
they tapped up the “décor” sign up because according to them the skeleton is named
and the one underneath him is his husband. also worth noting that they found 2 dollars in there the other day
you wanna see some badass shit from the early 20th century?? The Lumière brothers created the first full color photograph… in fucking 1903! So these dudes dyed potatoes (in red, blue, and green), mashed them down into just pure fuckin’ starch, and used these dyed potato starches as filters to block out/let in certain wavelengths of light. They coated one side of a glass plate with the starches and sensitized the other side with a mixture of gelatin and light sensitive materials (silver nitrate) and loaded these plates in their cameras.. This is a really simple explanation of the process and I may have missed some things
A few of my favorite autochrome photos:
that last one is literally a LOOK
but lets not forget sergei prokudin-gorskiy, who developed a similar process in 1902, published in 1903 and then toured russia to take hundreds of color photographs:
AND the guy developed color slide processing as well. as a person fairly familiar with modern b/w processing at home, but never EVER stepping into color (negatives or slides) territory, i’d say, BAMF to the highest degree.
