Featuring 48 images of drained public swimming pools, the project is a critical exploration of Western society’s relationship with water. Each limited edition copy comes with a watercolour reproduction by Hadfield and all proceeds will go to Water First — a Canadian charity dedicated to addressing water challenges in Indigenous communities. See more images from “Drought” below.

There are a lot of electronic ways that one’s identity can be stolen in 2019, but the old-fashioned “dig through the trash to find a piece of mail with personal information on it” method is still a threat, too. It’s no secret that you should destroy any documents that feature your social security number before throwing them out. But even when it comes to plain ol’ mail sans social security number, I still feel weird about cavalierly tossing it, especially when it prominently features my name, address, and/or any other personal information.

in an ambitious portrait project of the UK, self-taught artist carl lavia is creating immensely detailed illustrations of the island nation’s 69 cities from an aerial point view. with the help of photographer lorna le bedonchel, the pair use ink and archival paper to produce each drawing, which appear like maps from a distance, but reveal a lightweight impressionist style on closer inspection.

To help cure the planet’s ailments, Zhen Dai suggests antacid. In powdered form, calcium carbonate—often used to relieve upset stomachs—can reflect light; by peppering the sky with the shiny white particles, the Harvard researcher thinks it might be possible to block just enough sunlight to achieve some temperature control here on Earth. Dai’s work calls for a custom-­designed test balloon that, pending an independent committee’s green light, is set to release up to a kilogram of calcium carbonate 12 miles above the US, in what will be the first solar geoengineering experiment in the lower atmosphere. Small onboard propellers will stir the payload into the air.

danish firm johansen skovsted arkitekter transforms a cottage and shed sited in the protected landscape of denmark. initially built in 1905, the project is situated among historic vacation homes carefully placed along slopes of overgrown moraine and sand dunes, rising from surrounding flatlands. the reconstruction’s ambition is to recreate the sense and atmosphere of being in the heritage building before it was left unused and timber infestation made restoration unavoidable. the structure, originally built as a pair of log cabins, is reimagined as a wooden light-frame construction, with an exterior maintaining the protected expression of the original house. the new interior interprets memories and accumulated features for contemporary conditions, informed by the modern structure.
