If you are staying at the same place all your life, you are missing out. Because the world is beautiful and it has things to offer you only see when you go to places far away. Like these breathtaking images of volcanic rivers of Iceland, taken by Photographer Andre Ermolaev. They transmit a feeling of flow and softness unmatched with anything in our technocratic, economy-driven world. The colors and shapes are breathtaking and remind us of flowing clothes, music and paintings, drawn by the wind.

The year was 1975. The movie “Jaws” had been the first major box office hit of its kind. “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest” and “Rocky Horror Picture Show” had been released. David Bowie was squeaking “Fame” out of kitchen radios.

The idea of a computer sitting on a lap, let alone one in your pocket, seemed ridiculous. Computers were big, ugly and hard to use. IBM’s idea of the future took shape in a few slides or shots from a movie for IBM’s product, Bolder.

When I first saw these pictures, I thought they were not real. I figured that someone must have done what Panic did with their fake vintage game boxes: create a realistic looking photo shoot set in the mainframe age of 1975.

But they are for real. And what’s really odd is how modern these messages seem. I don’t know exactly for what these images were used, but imagine someone in the seventies used this for a presentation about reliable and accessible data storage.

Aside of cliché gender roles and the smell of cold smoke in the clothes of these men — with those keywords and some of the graphics, the images convey messages we are hearing about the modern Web every day. You’ll find more pictures at Square America.

In the run up to the 15th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP15) that takes place in Copenhagen next week, you’ll currently see a number of billboard ads on Copenhagen airport from an advertising campaign commissioned by Greenpeace. The ads feature photoshopped images of world leaders in 2020, apologizing for their mistake to decline necessary measures to stop climate change.

“It’s an apology from the future aimed at putting pressure on – and just maybe making these world leaders think twice about the consequences of their action or inaction now,”

explains the writer of the ads Toby Cotton of new agency Arc Communications.

“The brief from Greenpeace International was simple,” he continues, “to put pressure on world leaders to create a fair and binding agreement at Copenhagen.”
