We have a passion for fashion, and have even dabbled in design ourselves. Shown here is our electric flying suit, the human exoskeleton we attempted to build in the 1960s and the moon boots we made for Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. Last but not least is our recent collaboration with JackThreads on The Missions, a rare type of sneakers made with advanced materials to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the first lunar landing.
For New York Fashion Week, we wanted to explore the intersection of fashion and science further, and today, we’re pleased to introduce GE’s #iOnFashion team. Click here to meet the science and fashion bloggers who will take over our Tumblr next week with their unique NYFW coverage.
"Creole World is a complex, multi-layered photo essay linking New Orleans, which is frequently referred to as " the nothernmost Caribbean city", with its cultural kin further south. The similarities are quite striking and at times even uncanny.
Over the course of 38 years, Sexton has traveled across Latin America and the Caribbean—including Haiti, Colombia, Argentina, Cuba and Ecuador and New Orleans—capturing the similarities among these locales.
Creole World features 200 color images as well as essays by Creole-architecture scholar Jay D. Edwards and photography historian John H. Lawrence. Together, the essays and photographs take readers on a journey through the ever-changing Creole world.”
I was born and grew up in the Caribbean, so I welcome any chance to feature this part of the world on ArchAtlas (even if I could not find any pics from Puerto Rico), thanks to Architizer for bringing this artist to my dash!

"His series Studio Physics is an investigation into the nature of time, light, space and gravity. He composes a still life from which he crops one part of the image that gets send to a painting factory in China. Once the oil painting of the cropped section made by an anonymous artist returns he reinserts the painting into the original setup and photographs it again.” [text via]
