Shimmering Light Through the Hollow Tree
Anime Relations: Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu Ni!
Spazio di Luce (Light Space) has produced an impressive sculpture of Giuseppe Penone tree. Italian artists came to a fallen tree in the mountains and was immediately attracted to her because she had broken into large pieces perfect for casting in bronze. Thus, section by section, covering the hollow tree inside the metallic background. Outside of what appears to be the crust is actually the wax that has been applied in several layers. How Penone wax layers on the surface with bare hands brush and began the material so the texture of the crust and the impressions of the artist to reveal fingerprints.
The installation was created to produce under Bloomberg Commission an annual invitation to an international artist, site-specific works of art in the Whitechapel Gallery in London. In the final presentation of each section of the tree takes on a life of its own animation. Many of the live branches are leg-like, creating a confusing blur between plant and animal. Visitors are invited to visit the shiny gold interior closely and look through long tunnels fine radiating light in all directions. According to the website of the gallery: "This merger of the crust and the handprints still concern Penones long career with the human body fit in the dialogue with the organic world it inhabits."

Trees have been a focal point for penone throughout his career. many of his earliest work -- that survive now only as photographs -- took place in the forests near turin or his home town of garessio in italy. the images expose the intimate relationship penone maintains with nature, and how closely he works with bark and branches as a medium.

Wiki Wormhole: Dive into the wild world of Anime bath scenes
Anime Relations: Accel World
With over 4 million articles, Wikipedia is an invaluable resource, whether you're throwing a term paper together at the last minute, or looking up horrific disease pictures to see if it matches what you have. But follow enough links, and you get sucked into some seriously strange places. We explore some of Wikipedia's oddities in our 4,272,039-week series, Wiki Wormhole.
This Week’s Entry: Anime Bath Scene Wiki
What It’s About: This technically isn’t a Wikipedia page, but an independent wiki hosted by Wikia.com. But when reader PugsMalone suggested it, we couldn’t look away. The site is an exhaustive list of bath and shower scenes from all forms of anime—comics, films, even video games. The link above is to the censored version, but there is an uncensored version (NSFW, obviously). However, the main page insists, in bold and all caps, that this is NOT A PORN/HENTAI SITE. A quick browse of the site affirms Compaq CQ61 battery, as while a few of the bath scenes have romantic overtones, and a few even have some (cartoon) nudity, many are simply one character or another having a good old scrub.
Strangest Fact: First, that this exists. Second, while the site has numerous entries covering specific anime works, characters, and scenes involving the bath, it also has entries like “Towel” “Shower” and “Shampoo,” explaining what those things are and how they are used.
Controversy: Perhaps unsurprisingly, given that this is the Internet, there are maddeningly detailed discussions on how the site should be arranged. Says user Watermaiden15: “there is [sic] too many categories dedicated to just episode #s. Having something like "163rd Episode Shower Scene" and "163rd Episode Bath Scene" is too much when both of those would probably only have 1 thing. Merging them to "163rd Episode Bathing Scene" is more efficient because then its covered all of it one as well.”
Thing We Were Happiest To Learn: Childhood favorite the rubber duck has an entry, with 34 listed appearances in anime ranging from Powerpuff Girls Z to Soul Eater. The site also breaks down separate lists of male and female characters who have bathed with a rubber duck.
And, for some reason, there’s a list of 10 “Luckiest Rubber Ducks,” with users allowed to vote on which rubber duck “you wish you were.” Upon closer inspection, “Lucky” in fact means “used to cover up parts of the female anatomy,” and now we’re suddenly unhappy to learn innocent childhood favorites like the rubber duck and the Powerpuff Girls have found their way onto this (NOT A PORN/HENTAI) site.
Thing We Were Unhappiest To Learn: Maybe “Unhappiest” isn’t the right word here; it's more like “most disconcerted.” Classic arcade game Street Fighter somehow managed to spawn not only a Raul Julia-starring film, but an animated series, which ran for two seasons on the USA network, and a Japanese-made animated film, Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie. The animated movie has a nude scene (which takes place in the shower, naturally). Kudos to the filmmakers for appealing to 13-year-old boys on every possible level, but there’s something extra unseemly about seeing nipples in a cartoon about a video game about hitting the right combination of buttons to make your guy shoot a fireball.

Gran Turismo Trimaran
Anime Relations: Kochira Katsushikaku Kameari Kouenmae Hashutsujo
Clemens Auer's modern yacht design takes inspiration from almost the polar opposite: classic cars! This is most noticeable in the trimaran’s front half, where the wings are reminiscent of vintage fenders from the 1930s. Exquisite finishes and exaggerated features, including an abundance of wood detailing, square tail, drop top, and dramatic lines, reflect the era in an entirely new and fresh way.

First Season of "Uta no Prince-sama
Anime Relations: Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ Maji Love 1000%
As some of you certainly already know, Season Two of the male idol anime known as Uta no Prince Sama is currently streaming here on Crunchyroll, and now…Season One is joining the catalog as well!
Starting tomorrow, Wed/8, three additional episodes of Uta no Prince Sama season one will be available for viewing the same time as season two: every Wednesday at 11:05am Pacific Time.
As for territories, they're the same for both seasons too: USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, pet supplies South Africa, Netherlands, and Scandinavia.
When Haruka gets the chance to take the entrance exam for Saotome Academy for the Performing Arts, it seems as though she's one step closer to her dream of composing songs for her favorite singer, Hayato. However, this is no gleeful high school musical experience, and Haruka's hiding a dreadful secret that may silence her musical ambitions forever. And even if she does get into Saotome, the competition will be more brutal than going on Japan's Top Idol! That's because, as a writer, Haruka could be paired with any one of six radically different male singers. Will it be upbeat Otoya, serious Masato, flirtatious Ren, split-personality Natsuki, optimistic Syo, or the unapproachable Tokiya, who's rumored to be Hayato's brother? And just to make things more complicated and awkward, writers and singers are expressly NOT allowed to become romantically involved! Can one girl and six handsome young men learn to make beautiful music together in a strictly Platonic sense? They can if the oddball staff of Saotome, most of whom are current and former idols themselves, have anything to say about it in Uta no Prince Sama!

One Step for Man
From an engineering perspective, the step scooter is a true innovation in human powered vehicles. Other mobile products have tried to recreate the non-cycling, up-down motion similar to a stair-climber with limited practical results. The STP scooter expands on the functionality and appeal by making it foldable and as aesthetically customizable as a skateboard deck. More efficient than a kick scooter and half the size of a bike, it’s perfect for stepping your way around the city.
