Photo Series: What Do The Contents Of Your Refrigerator Say About You?





Texas-based photographer Marc Menjivar has a set of work titled ‘Refrigerator’. As its name suggests, this series simply takes a look at what is inside your fridge.



Taking the idiom, ‘you are what you eat’ into mind, Menjivar’s photos lets you make assumptions about the owner of the fridge through their choice of food.



It is fascinating to see the contents in various fridges. Whether they contain processed food, fresh food, takeout boxes, just meat, or nothing at all—each item seems to tell a different story.

In two separate executions, the contents in the car are exposed to showcase an overwhelming amount of things: camping gear, a canoe, a guitar, a bicycle, just to name a few.

This Computer Lets You Type Words By 'Punching' The Letters





European design studio Bless has created a very literal expression of a computer that encourages fitness, but not in the way that one would expect.



Desiree Heiss and Ines Kaagin, founders of Bless, have created the ‘Punching Bag Computer’. It is a spin on the “fitness meets workplace” phenomenon, taking a jab at treadmill desks or standing up desks.



To type a word on this computer, one must individually punch the alphabets and navigate the keys, making users work out for 10 times longer than typing on a normal keyboard.



The Punching Bag Computer is currently on display at the Istanbul Design Biennial.

Writer Erin La Rosa has always been wearing makeup on a daily basis for 17 years, so she was curious to find out what would happen if she stops wearing it.



She then embarks on her social experiment for a week, which is summarized in the following video.



She said, “Makeup is something that I really do like wearing. It makes me feel powerful. But in the end, it doesn’t really have much effect on the people around me, the way I always thought it had.



“It’s really about how you present yourself that will change the way that people treat you. Not about what you put on your face.”



Another of her co-worker also attempted an alternative social experiment—she wanted to find out ‘What’s It Like To Start Wearing Makeup’.
