The pink Mexican wall in all its gorgeous perversity

1440

Mexican firm Estudio 3.14 has visualised the “gorgeous perversity” of US president-elect Donald Trump‘s plan to build a wall along the countries’ border.

In response to the controversial proposal, a group of interns at the Guadalajara-based studio came up with a conceptual design that would celebrate Mexico’s architectural heritage.

Moreover, the wall is not only a wall,” said Estudio 3.14. “It is a prison where 11 million undocumented people will be processed, classified, indoctrinated, and/or deported.”

The team suggests that the wall could employ up to six million personnel. It could also incorporate shopping centre straddling its width, and a viewpoint from which US citizens could climb up and look down onto the other side.

We’re not anti-technology, we’re just human. The light phone.

Just the physical presence of the phone as an object on a table in sight, whether or not it rings, will change the course of our thoughts and effect a conversation we are trying to have. The solution had to involve leaving the smart phone at home, a separation from the object itself.

Anyone who loves both copywriting and swearing (who doesn’t?) will be relieved to hear that there’s a new tool to help with both, in the shape of Lorem fucking ipsum. The handy online tool, created by Good Fucking Design Advice, bills itself as the placeholder text for “people who have some fucking passion!” The site lets you choose either a number of paragraphs or words, and generates a barrage of very sweary text accordingly.
