20 ‘Then And Now’ Pics That Show How Time Changes Things

If you’re not familiar with what rephotography is, it’s the art of reshooting old photos of places in the modern day as accurately as possible. This can prove to be rather tricky, especially when it comes to really old photos, as the places often change dramatically over the years, and finding the exact spot where a picture was taken almost a hundred (or even more!) years ago is really challenging. Nevertheless, the users of the r/OldPhotosInRealLife subreddit love a good challenge and constantly provide us with amazing recreations of old photos in modern times, proving how time changes things – and not always for the better.

Check out some great examples of rephotography in the gallery below and if you want more, explore the amazing work of re.photos here!

Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that’s trending on the web.

This Colorized 1902 Footage Allows You To Ride Through A German Town On ‘The Flying Train’

Fasten your seat belt, sit back, and enjoy the crisp ride on a suspended railway from back in 1902. You heard me right. The surprisingly clear footage was made 118 years ago in the Barmen-Elberfeld area in Germany, today known as Wuppertal. But thanks to the proprietary 68 mm film, the clip feels like it was made recently.

Initially, the black and white footage released by the Museum of Modern Art was only 2 minutes long. But Denis Shiryaev, an AI specialist from Neural Love agency in Gdansk, Poland, took it to a whole new level.

With the help of machine learning technology, Denis “remastered” the footage and turned it into an almost 4-minute-long video. He also added colors and sound, stabilized the footage, and smoothed out the framing. The mind-blowing results are in down below, and this feels like the kind of roller coaster I’d sign up for.

More info: Youtube | Neural.Love

This vivid footage shows what it was like to ride the suspended railway over the German town in 1902

Wuppertal Schwebebahn is the oldest electric elevated railway with hanging cars

Image credits: wikipedia

The Schwebebahn railway is still in use to this day and carries 82,000 commuters a day

Image credits: wikipedia

Designed by Eugen Langen for Berlin, the suspended railway was instead built in Barmen, Elberfeld, and Vohwinkel between 1897 and 1903

The electric suspension railway is the oldest elevated train in Germany. It was designed by Eugen Langen as an idea to sell to the city of Berlin, and construction on the project began in 1898. Emperor Wilhelm II was one of the first to catch a ride on the innovative train during trial runs in 1900. It was just years before World War I happened.

Its first track was opened in 1901 in a town which is today known as Wuppertal

The remaining footage is so clear and vivid because it was shot on proprietary 68 mm film by the American motion picture company Biograph.

The Mutoscope used 68 mm film, a film stock twice as large as most films at the time. (70 mm film really only came into its own during the 1950s.) The 30 frames per second shooting rate was also faster than the usual 18 fps or 24 fps, which means the illusion of reality is closer to the video rate of today.

The entire trip takes around half an hour to finish

The frames of the film were printed on cards and could be watched through a viewfinder, but it wasn’t intended to become a film in itself.

But thanks to the AI editor Denis Shiryaev, the footage was upscaled with neural network technology. The added colors also help to create the real-life effect even though they are not historically accurate.

The total route is just over eight miles long and follows the river Wupper for most of it

Denis Shiryaev took the original footage, slowed it down to look like real life, and revived it with colors

And here’s the original black and white footage released by the Museum Of Modern Art before it was edited

Jsouv – The First Souvenir For The Modern Traveler

Jsouv is a collection of finely crafted souvenirs of extraordinary architectural landmarks from around the world. Using natural materials, minimalistic design and precision machining, Jsouv was created to experience the simple beauty of each architectural wonder in the palm of your hands.

My passion for travel and background in civil engineering inspired me to create architectural souvenirs with clean lines, durable materials, and a style that could complement the decor of a modern home or office space

The Jsouv collection features 15 landmarks from New York, London, Berlin, Istanbul, Dubai, Tokyo, and more.

Working on each souvenir, we have tried to emphasize the most important features of each structure to make the souvenirs as clean as possible.

To accentuate the beauty of form, we use natural materials with pleasant surfaces. Each figure is made by CNC machining from a solid block of aluminum or brass. Many-axis CNC metal processing is an expensive method, but it allowed us to achieve the highest surface quality and create a unique product in small editions.

Each base is created from natural walnut to contrast its noble dark color and texture and highlight the piece itself and has 2D emblem of the city landmark on it.

The pieces are placed on the base by strong neodymium magnets and can easily be removed whenever you like.

33 Hyper-Realistic Women In Magazine Poses With Their Flaws And Imperfections That Look Like Photographs

Philipp Weber is a talented artist who paints realistic portraits of women in traditional magazine poses. The artist, who lives and works in Kassel and Berlin, Germany, looks for inner truth so instead of bringing empty perfection to life, he portraits their minor imperfections and their deep human stories—whether that be the sadness in their eyes or wounds on their faces.

Weber’s artistic journey began when he was just a 3-year-old boy and since then, he hasn’t lost his path. Through the years, you can see a clear artistic progression in his works. His inspiration comes from books, movies, fellow artists, other creative people, and people’s personal stories about their lives: the stories that reveal their dreams and aspirations that are beyond fancy faces and flawless skin.

“New Birth”

“Philipp started painting when he was 3 years old as a present to give his mum and grandmother to make them happy and smile. He says that he cannot imagine his life without painting. When he was a high school student, he painted portraits that he sold to people directly and made enough money to buy a small car,” says Philipp’s business manager Kiki Kim to Bored Panda.

“Philipp studied his Master’s degree at Berlin University of the Arts and he has always been interested in realistic or super-realistic art, regardless of what stage of his career he has been in, as he believes that his viewers can engage with his paintings the best with a super-realistic art form.”

This story is another example proving that the coronavirus is becoming a cultural phenomenon.

The famous, supercharged Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek has already released Pandemic! COVID-19 Shakes the World, a book about the unprecedented global pandemic sweeping the planet that is supposed to “uncover its deeper meanings, marvel at its mind-boggling paradoxes, and speculate on the profundity of its consequences, all in a manner that will have you sweating profusely and gasping for breath.”

Written with his customary brio and love analogies (Quentin Tarantino and H.G. Wells sit next to Hegel and Marx in these pages), Žižek provided a concise and provocative snapshot of the crisis as it widens, engulfing us all.

The author also will receive no royalties from this publication. OR Books will pay all royalties to Doctors Without Borders.

Also, The Tiger Lillies have released a digital album, titled COVID​-​19. The cult British band wrote it in self-isolation, and the record includes such songs as Sanitizer Survivor and Toilet Rolls Mummy.

“COVID-19 came out of the blue and left me unable to do the thing which I’ve always done for the last 30 years – perform,” Martyn Jacques, the founder of the band, wrote. “The thing which has kept me alive materially, occupied my time and kept me sane. For me the act of singing to an audience has been my emotional and artistic release. COVID-19 stopped all that and for the last 3 weeks I’ve felt like a goldfish in a bowl. My only way of staying relatively sane has been to sing songs about the madness of this. Here’s the album we’ve recorded, me isolating in my studio in Berlin, my band member Adrian isolating in his studio in Athens.”

Now whether you like these releases or not is a different question. The fact of the matter is that the coronavirus has been reshaping our understanding of the world so hard, it’ll definitely leave a print in history.

120,000 Ribbons Hover Near The Brandenburg Gate To Mark The 30-Year Anniversary Of Its Fall

During a time when it seems like walls between individuals and nations are popping up left and right, we are also reminded of when walls were torn down and people were once again reunited.

On November 9th, Berlin celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Peaceful Revolution and the Fall of the Berlin Wall. The highlight of the celebration was Patrick Shearn’s and his Poetic Kinetics team’s colorful motion art installation comprised of 120,000 colorful fabric ribbons.

Berlin hosted an open-air art installation commemorating the Peaceful Revolution’s 30th Anniversary

Poetic Kinetics is an experiential design and fabrication team that creates immersive larger-than-life art. The group brings together a variety of disciplines to form a unique, unexpected, and unconventional creative experience. Poetic Kinetics are known for a number of gigantic installations, like Escape Velocity, Solar Sunflowers, and Caterpillar’s Longing.

Kulturprojekte Berlin approached Patrick Shearn and his team to create a moving sculpture that would symbolize the unification of the German people. The art installation titled Visions in Motion was set up in front of the Brandenburg gate in Berlin, stretching along the walkway away from it.

Visions in Motion included 120,000 colorful ribbons with messages of greetings, wishes, and hopes on them

The symbol of unity came in the form of 120,000 colorful ripstop nylon and reflective fabric streamers. A quarter of them had handwritten messages—greetings, wishes, memories, and hopes—from Germans themselves and the global community.

Around 9,500 feet of rope was used for the installation with more than 1,250 hand-tied knots. The work of art swayed majestically in the wind, creating a beautiful and immersive wave. A stronger gust brought down the wave low enough to engulf spectators and passers-by.

The vast art installation symbolizes unity of the German people

Visions in Motions was a part of a bigger event, the Berlin Festival Week, which took place on November 4th through the 10th. Visitors were able to participate in a variety of events, activities, and exhibitions spread across a number of historical locations to commemorate and celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Peaceful Revolution and the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Poetic Kinetic also released a video for the Visions in Motion moving art installation

Artist Calls Out Aaron Carter For Ripping Off His Artwork To Promote Merch, And His Reply Is Even Worse Than The Stealing
