Life Without Words

Paul seems to have disappeared, and given his recent trip to Jupiter, I’m a bit scared. Cross your fingers for his safe return from space.

The Untitled Project takes photographs from urban settings and separates all text from the image. Signs become blank and advertisements are reduced to their barest elements, forcing the viewer to draw their own conclusions when they’re not provided with the textual information they’re expecting.

This image, for some reason, stands out to me.

I saw this on another blog last night - looked at two or three images and decided it was a total waste of bandwidth.

But then I'm not in that metrosexual hipster avante garve sub-group that it is probably targeting.

Are you implying that I am?

I don't believe any term is less descriptive of me than hipster. Avant-garde, maybe. Metrosexual... have you seen my hair? :)

the images are kind of refreshing.
And the one with the McDonald's reminds me of Legos, for some reason.

I think there was a word from an Asian language (not sure which) that meant to think without words --


Interesting concept, difficult to apply.

'OK brain, no more words. At all. ... Hey it works! oh wait, really now, no more, ok here goes... oh yeahGODDAMMIT'

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
