Climate change is the most horrific threat our species has ever known: No matter how powerful you are or how much money you have, our transforming planet is a reckoning for every one of us. But there are degrees to this misery. If you’re perched in a Manhattan penthouse, the effects might not be immediately apparent (because you don’t care or aren’t paying attention, or both). If you’re a subsistence farmer in Kenya, the situation is already much more dire.

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.

Camilla Greenwell for Secret Cinema It was a glorious, audacious debut. The creators of the secret worlds are currently delivering their 48th production, which opened on 8 August, styled as their first festival with a heady mix of live music, theatre scenes and of course an immersive film screening. And there is much to praise about Secret Cinema Presents William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet, which transports crowds of up to 5,000 per show to Verona Beach, a sprawling open-air backdrop inspired by Baz Luhrmann’s cult 1996 classic.

You know how people are always taking pictures near the leaning tower of Pisa, pretending to hold it? Or the classic “sun in palm” photos? While these may be considered “classic” cliches, with the constantly rising social media use, a lot of new ones have emerged. And one Instagram account called Insta Repeat is dedicated to pointing them out.

the philosophy behind belgium based studio ARK is returning to the basics by providing a simple dwelling within nature. over the past three years the studio has been working on re-designing, building and testing different types of ‘ark-shelters’. the aim is to provide a place that of comfort in the heart of the nature where one can detox their mind. with this perspective ARK has created a new shelter type — the prefabricated ‘into the wild cabin’. as the 40m² dwelling is surrounded by openings on each of its five sides, it is entire exposed to its natural surroundings. each opening brings in a new atmosphere.

an architectural artwork by mark wallinger and studio octopi has opened at runnymede in the english county of surrey. more than 800 years ago, the meadow of runnymede served as the location where feudal barons forced king john to seal the magna carta — a founding moment in shaping the basis of common law across the world. titled ‘writ in water’, the installation celebrates the enduring significance of the charter, and has been designed to offer an immersive environment for contemplation and reflection.

cohesion studio recognizes the contemporary need for disconnect. their folly — a retreat in the mojave desert — offers the opportunity for seclusion while inciting visitors to reconnect with the natural environment. designer malek alqadi at cohesion defines the architectural folly as a ‘whimsical structure built to serve as a conversation piece, lend interest to a view and experience.’ as the studio aims to explore an integration of pragmatic and contextual relevancy, the retreat is both architecturally innovative and environmentally conscious. the image of the buildings respects the endless desert vista while their ‘solar tree’ exploits the desert’s resources making the folly entirely self-sustainable. the inventive decisions made during the design of this refuge emphasize the beauty of the site and provoke an experiential connection to the mojave desert.

Grundell’s detailed study of glitch art begins with a 1962 quote from the astronaut John Glenn: ‘A glitch is such a minute change in voltage that no fuse could protect against it’. A glitch occurring in a space shuttle could be catastrophic, an unprovoked error with life threatening consequences. With this simple observation, Glenn helped to popularise the concept of the glitch as an unseen flaw that only becomes visible when its fallout affects the functionality of a system. The digital revolution has since made the glitch, or more specifically the impact of the glitch, a more commonplace occurrence, such as those moments when a digital signal pixelates into an often beautiful abstraction or an interactive screen temporarily distorts before the familiar interface returns. The result of a glitch isn’t necessarily visual – as a creative concept it is closely associated with sonic effects – but when discussed as an aesthetic form, glitch art is usually found on a digital screen.
