Ponte Tower || Short Documentary

Originally built in 1975 as a monument to luxury, Ponte Tower in Johannesburg, South Africa, housed many of the city's wealthiest citizens and featured three-storey apartments, retails units, and a jacuzzi on the roof. However, over the last 30 years the moneyed classes have moved away from the area, causing the building to fall into disrepair and become a dirty and dangerous place to live. Instead of an indoor ski slope at the center of the 54-storey cylindrical building, there's now just a three-storey pile of rubbish. This short documentary by director Philip Bloom gives us a closer look at the building's history and its its current inhabitants, who now see their home as cheap, and most importantly, safe for the first time in more than three decades.

Yard Built Yamaha XJR 1300 || Eau Rouge || Deus Ex Machina Motorcycles

With the goal of celebrating a culture of creativity, Deus Ex Machina is world-renowned for its hand-built motorcycles. The company's workshop showrooms in America, Indonesia, Australia and Italy have quickly evolved into an epicenter for those wanting to celebrate the culture of creativity.
Deus Ex Machina Italy, was set up in 2013 as the flagship European store and follows the firm's love of all things creative and fun. Inspired by machines of the late 1970s and 1980s, as well as surf and bicycle culture, Deus Ex Machina's crew of customisers spend many hours perfecting their unique bespoke motorcycles.

Having unveiled the mean and moody Yamaha XJR1300 back street special they entitled Project X in July, Deus Ex Machina's latest creation is designed to stand out from the crowds. Inspired by legendary endurance machines of the 1970s and 1980s, Eau Rouge is a thoroughly modern interpretation of those iconic retro racers. Encapsulating the lean and single purpose looks of an endurance bike, Deus have given a modern twist to the semi-faired 1970s style through the incorporation of straight line and angular aesthetics.
 Enjoy a look at the bike above and take an in-depth look at the creation in action below.

Concrete Rodeo

"Concrete Rodeo is a short documentary which follows the paths of three bike messengers in early ’90s Chicago. First up is Jack who is takes nothing seriously, jokes around, downs Buds on the job with friends, throws around packages and feels as if he’ll never grow up. He sees his life complete in the sense that he has no desires or motivation to do anything else. He’s absolutely fine with his punk-like appearance, don’t-give-a-fuck attitude, and enjoys spending his spare time listening to old jazz and pop vinyls on a decrepit gramophone.
Next up is Jenny, a female bike messenger who does her job day-in, day-out with as much of a professional demeanor as the people she delivers to regardless of the difficulties that occur on a regular basis. One such situation occurs when attempting to deliver an inaccurately labeled package to Bloomingdale’s. Today, she’d resolve the issue in a matter of seconds with a cellphone, but in her day Jenny has to first find a payphone before making a call to clarify the parcel’s owner.
The most interesting of the three is Curt who refers to himself as Bike Boy. He’s also the most well-spoken and probably well-read of the three. He’s also a bit of a smart ass who makes literary references about time, questions his life as a messenger and contemplates as to whether the job will eventually kill him or as Bike Boy he’ll be a 'boy eternal.'"

It goes back to being your own coach and not having to answer to anybody,' says pro skateboarder Brian Anderson in this new video portrait from VICE.

"Titan is the name given to a seven-foot-tall sculpture designed by French artist, Thomas Voillaume. It was first modelled using 3D software and then printed out onto 145 sheets of A4 paper.

Voillaume then grouted and sanded the sculpture, applying comic book art to act as Titan’s skin. Watch the sculpture take form in the video below."
