I know, I know, the name doesn’t do it justice but the Great Blue Hole off the coast of Belize is a must if you’re travelling through Central America. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site back in 1996, the Great Blue Hole was originally a limestone cave that started to form about 150,000 years ago. Today, it’s one of the greatest places for experienced divers to explore.

This has to be the laziest cat ever. Laying there, head next to the water bowl. Parched, the cat simply couldn’t bare to actually stand up to get a drink, like any decently normal cat. No. This cat, feeling especially lazy, just dipped her paw in and licked the water off. Can’t say I can’t […]

Water tanks in NYC given an artistic treatment to raise awareness about the importance of clean water for all
For most of us, clean, drinkable water is something so natural, and almost boring, that we take it for granted. But for many many people it’s not.

Slabber captures incredibly detailed images of the liquid plumes with high-speed photography and digitally manipulates them, blending in faces and figures. Recently exhibited at KKNK 2014, an Afrikaans-language art festival in Oudtshoorn SA, the series is eerily beautiful yet deceptively simple.
New York-based typographer Brian Gartside teamed up with scientists and engineers from Carnegie Mellon University and University of Virginia to design the Drinkable Book for Water is Life. The manual not only dispenses safe water tips, but also purifies water. Each of its pages is coated with silver nano particles that destroy deadly diseases like […]
