Feline Friday is upon us once again. Speaking of being upon something, here are photographs of cats sitting on things. Proving that people liked sharing pictures of their cats long before the internet.

"Glass Cages"

“Glass Cages”

At her blog, photographer Lisa Stock talks about her latest image, “Glass Cages,” which puts the artist in a scene from King Kong (1933). See more of her work at InByTheEye. “Are you the beast, the beauty or the bird? What cage are you in? It’s an endless Escher-like loop, but one worth the question.”

Google Streetview Camera’s Museum Self-Portraits

Google Streetview Camera’s Museum Self-Portraits

Quartz writes about “Camera In The Mirror,” an Mario Santamaría’s Tumblr art project collecting the Google Streetview camera’s photographs of itself in museums. “Collected together, the Google-camera selfies are at turns unsettling, revealing, and absurd—unintentionally upstaging the art they’re meant to quietly document.”

Preparations for the heart-stopping facehugger scene. A human hand was among the least startling things to be ejected from the egg. Here’s over 200 behind-the-scenes images from the making of Alien. Thanks to Larry Wright for the tip.

What you’ll see below is not your usual polished and prepped behind-the-scenes piece, but hundreds of individually collected bits of raw footage shot on the set of Alien in 1978 and 1979. Some of it was apparently shot on video, some on 8mm — some bits even look to have come directly from unused film footage. Given that most of it was shot for personal use though, very little of this footage has actually been seen before; and it provides a very intimate and unique approachability to a film many of us have seen dozens of times before.

"The Architecture of Kowloon Walled City"

“The Architecture of Kowloon Walled City”

Architecture Daily has an excerpt from City of Darkness detailing the development of Hong Kong’s Kowloon Walled City. “By the 1970s, the City had filled out to its maximised form, with buildings of up to 14 storeys in height, and virtually no ground level daylight penetration save at its centre. Its density was estimated to have reached a mere 7 square feet per person. The yamen area had somehow…

A House Based on Biogenetic Forms

A House Based on Biogenetic Forms

Behold the creepily organic splendor of Gonzalo Vaíllo Martínez’ design for a house.  “Organic louvred panels incorporated into the building’s skin open and close like gills, while other openings stretch and widen to adjust the amount of light entering the interior.”
