Our lock-and-leave culture: the rise of self-storage and clinging to stuff we hardly use

Moving, downsizing, long-term renovations, deceased estates and divorce are all factors in the relentlessly increasing demand for off-site storageAbout once every six weeks I go to my least happy place. It’s a massive warehouse in the industrial back blocks of Port Kembla, near Wollongong in New South Wales, housing a storage facility called Super Easy Storage. Because it is a no-frills operation, it does not offer 24-hour access like the more upmarket companies do, so I have to call ahead to sa...

Crispy Treats

I'm pretty pleased with myself for perfecting this recipe. Turns out, it's a lot harder making the classic Rice Krispie treat than you'd think. Previous versions were too wet and thus sogged the cereal, or the sugar re-crystallized and the whole thing fell apart. But these! These have the perfect blend of crispness, sweetness, and chewiness that defines this childhood classic. These freeze and thaw very well should you need to make them ahead for a holiday party.   INGREDIENTSMarshmallow- 3/...

Culture You Can Heft

In 2004, the way I interacted with culture fundamentally changed. That’s the year I got my first iPod. Before my iPod, if I wanted to listen to music, I’d have to pop a CD into my car’s 5-disc changer or bring along my Discman. When one CD was over and I wanted to listen to another, I’d have to put in another disc. If I wanted to buy a new CD, I’d mosey on down to a music store. I’d often go looking for an album from one band, but after talking to the store clerk, walk away with one fro...

Solving Humanity’s Trust Problem

For the new Submersion deep dive, which is about exploring the Matrix-like nature of reality, I actually considered that some form of AI might consume it in future years. So I’ve been designing it to be relevant for all sentient beings, not just biological humans. It is an AI-friendly course. This might sound silly, but eventually it won’t sound silly. I’m actually serious. For a few years now, I’ve been thinking about what value I might provide that could still be relevant and worthwhile for AI...

Flocked Gilded: Euphorium Brooklyn and The Golden Age

  I can’t recall the exact work of art that my sculpture teacher in college had been referring to, but during a first year course, he had been telling us about a lovely bird-shaped piece that a friend of his had made. Much to the artist’s dismay, there was no way to display it - a traditional “stand” (of wood or marble) made the sculpted bird look fussy, too precious. After some time he s...

Hamburg in harmony: the ebb and flow of an artistic city

Its latest landmark, the Elbphilharmonie, dominates the waterfront but throughout this port city there is captivating art, architecture and musicI made my Hamburg discovery in the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe. After a happy hour spent gazing at the cabinets of ceramics, glass and decorative treasures dating back to dynastic Egypt, I turned a corner and there it was: a vision of Austin-Powers grooviness. This was Danish designer Verner Panton’s canteen for Der Spiegel, lifted from the magazine’s ...
