Humour as an Effective Weapon
Lithuania has imposed an inexpensive sanction on Russia by deploying the very effective, but not-so-deadly weapon of humour. The street in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, where the Russian embassy is located, was renamed "Street of Ukrainian Heroes" and thus pay tribute to Ukraine with every letter and card.

Caroline Rothwell- Comparative Anatomy
The Comparative Anatomy series, 2009, is nickel-plated Britannia metal, approx 65cm high. “Rothwell has developed a practice that is both sculptural and two-dimensional, often using unique self-devised fabrication methods. She creates a fictional world, a geographical non place that is imagined but a logical consequence of real world actions. She uses a scientific focus to meditate on the follies of humanity, so that, her work can be seen as a grand macro-analysis, a scrutiny of human activity and its effects. Despite the gravity of her interests, they are approached with humour, erudition, economy and stylistic diversity.”

Ceramic Geodesic Dome Homes
Geoship installed its first bio-ceramic geodesic dome to create long-lasting, zero-carbon, fireproof and biologically resonant architecture. The idea is to create more than a new home design, but a new way of creating communities to build homes. Geoship mixes a type of ceramic crystals and forms them into triangular moulds. The panels are installed on a network of struts that support the dome structure, almost like the interior structure of a mushroom cap. The end product is recyclable, mould-proof, fire-proof and flood-proof. The domes are also hurricane, earthquake and insect resistant. It even comes in cool colours. https://inhabitat.com/first-ceramic-geodesic-dome-in-the-world-is-affordable/
