Global art: For the past decade I've collected globes; I've got maybe a dozen of various sizes. I'm always fascinated by the fact that, despite ever-changing borders, they're never dated or visibly copyrighted, and I appreciate the visual reminder that we're all really in this together. Eyebeam's reBlog points out Ingo Gunther's "World Processor" project, in which he altered some 200 globes to show different realities of modern "geopolitics." This one compares the number of daily TV deaths to the number of people owning TV sets, showing that "Most nations would disappear on a daily basis" if those deaths actually occurred.
