Watch David Choe scour through Detroit and Cleveland with folks Scrapping to survive.  People are literally ripping apart old schools, homes, hospitals and factories for raw materials to sell to local scrap yards for cash. Scrap metal being one of the biggest US exports to China, has an interesting life cycle that often starts from places like Detroit and Cleveland.  David Choe as correspondent for VICE explores the situation on the ground and looks into the life cycle of scrap metal “from the people who risk their lives to find it, to the yards that buy it, all the way to the Chinese traders who take it back home to build their economy”.

Liu Bolin: The invisible artist

Since 2005, performance artist Liu Bolin pursues the art of disappearing in plain sight. His installations of optical  illusions are a collaborative effort, where he becomes the canvas for others to paint until he becomes invisible. Take a look:

Rethinking Bamboo

That is what they are doing at the First Beijing International Design Triennial, rethinking the ways the world can use bamboo. They came up with cars, bikes, and mini-car type things. As DesignBoom notes, “the first annual beijing international design triennial takes place this september 26th through october 17th, coinciding with beijing design week 2011. ‘rethinking bamboo’ presents unconventional uses of the material. harvested sustainably, with natural antibiotic properties, bamboo is strong enough to be used for furniture and structural pieces, while its fiber is utilizable in a host of other products.”

Like a MINI Cooper, do you want to be hit by a Ford F-150 in a bamboo car? America doesn’t really adapt well.
