People, I’m slowly running a bit low on new material. That means…
1. Time for our
gazillions millions thousands quite a few dunno, maybe a couple dozen? three friends to send new material, puh-leese!
2. Time for cheap reruns of lukewarm oldies: let’s start with a lovingly complied collection of the “Best of Ugly New Zealand Edition North Island (BOUNZENI)”. Sounds a bit like a hungarian car brand, if you ask me.
Keep calm, Dunners, I’ll follow up with the “Best of the South” these days.
I have a hunch that Rachel Tallon isn’t entirely happy with the Westfield
mall shopping center in Lower Hutt:
“A monstrosity that suddenly appeared in my home town a few years ago. Shaped like a Borg ship, with as much character, this imposing monolithic structure stands as a windowless monument to consumerism. (…)
Dull grey boxes plonked on top of a stress-inducing carpark, this rectangular tomb of doom to your credit card is now the heart of my town.”
But hey, just a hunch. Don’t miss the other instalments of the series:

Our reader Caroline Glass contributed this visual symphony of 3 bicycles, an unspecified number of cars and heaps of concrete. Thanksalotta, Caroline! Another
victim member of our steadily growing “Nest-besmircher Network”.
“Somebody used a fence and some pieces of cloth to “write” the sentence “It will all be OK” on a fence in Wellington.”
“Now it was changed to “You are doing OK”. What will come next?”
Another masterpiece from the sensational Kristina D.C. Hoeppner. This time starring the typeface “Fence Sans Serif“ and documenting a message from a higher entidy.
Life’s a beech. This photo, on the contrary, is greet!
Thanks to the breethtaking Emily Walker.
Whenever european architects mess up so badly that more than a dozen people get injured or killed, they are exiled to New Zealand. Where they do stuff like this.
A big thanks to the bodacious Kristina D.C. Hoeppner for providing all these gems under a Creative Commons license! It feels good to act legally from time to time!
Today just a simple photo out of a
driving parked car. Depicting the Roxy Cinema in Wellington. I really love this kind of photos, they have this mechanical pseudo-objectivsm of Google Street Views.
Jon Rafman has a wonderful essay and a project page about this topic, although he tends to prefer the more spectacular or „meaningful“ motives and leaves out more mundane candidates… – the stuff that feeds this little project here.
