Business Reopens Its Doors After 53 Days To Find All The Leather Products Molded ‹ Bored Panda

Got to love nature! It doesn’t care about us, which I suppose shows it’s sentient.

This article from Bored Panda shows what can happen inside a luxury goods shop (admittedly in Malaysia with the A/C turned off) when we’re not getting in the way of the natural way of things.

Within only a few weeks of us forceably cutting back on traffic the air clears, life returns to the previously contaminated waterways of Venice and London and… fungal growths begin to break down luxury goods into compost.

There are theories that evolution really got into top gear once fungus appeared and began the breaking down of useless dead things and returning previously locked in nutrients back into the food chain. Perhaps this in Nature’s way of giving us a message about how high fashion is just so much useless dead material, better served as food for the simple creatures of the world…

Incredible Trampled Snow Art by Simon Beck | Bored Panda

Bored Panda do it again! Great find on their excellent design blog. British engineer Simon Beck now spends his winters in Les Arcs, in France. There, he gets his exercise by donning snow shoes and treading out geometric designs he’s created on his computer.

I love this kind of because I can stuff. It’s inherently temporary, in that snow melts and can be covered over, or skied through. But it is such a commitment of time and energy… all an expression of internal drive and, I suppose, love of what you’re trying to achieve. When it’s done, if it ever truly is, then it has a limited time to be appreciated before it gets altered by the wind, or more snow, or other people.

There’s something intensely human about setting out on such a grand task with no real guarantee of success or lasting result. A little like love itself.
