World's Largest Web Spun In Vienna

For any Lord of the Rings fan looking to recreate the webby fortress of Shelob (You’re out there, dammit! I know you are!), may I direct your attention to this former stock exchange building in Vienna. This past June, a design group named For Use/Numen used nearly 117,000 feet and 100 pounds of tape to form this massive web-like structure.

Interestingly, the idea for the creation is actually based on something else a bit more human. “The installation is based on an idea for a dance performance in which the form evolves from the movement of the dancers between the pillars,” explained For Use’s Christoph Katzler to Fast Company. “The dancers are stretching the tape while they move, so the resulting shape is a recording of the choreography.”

OK. But it sure looks Chris Martin’s Coldplay single come to life. Check out video of the web being spun after the jump.

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.

Jallikattu was a single issue campaign doomed for failure

Filing a case in the courts is a time-consuming and expensive affair and, sadly, doomed to fail because, by and large, the laws of the land reflect the views of the people.
