Dancing girls of Ajanta

Dancing girls of Ajanta - cave painting

Around 1918-1919, Mukul Dey made a trip to the Ajanta and Bagh caves to recreate the frescoes there. Dey’s circumstances were modest and the trip was funded by commissioned portraits. The work was eventually published in book form in 1925. “Dancing Girls” is possibly part of this or at least inspired by Dey’s trip given the costumes and hairstyles.

The paintings and artwork of the Buddhist caves of Ajanta remain a unique and colourful record of an ancient life that was. The people seem to emerge from rock fully formed and vibrant and this art style is one that has not been given enough credit as a major school in the history of the representation of the human figure in art. —S

Paperclip computer - CT-650 computer trainer

These are the retro stylings of a surviving example of the Arkay (later Comspace) CT-650 computer trainer, a historic computing device designed mostly as an educational tool and build almost entirely based on the plans in a book titled How to Build a Working Digital Computer.

How To Build a Working Digital Computer, published in 1968, provided instructions and plans for constructing a working digital computer out of household parts including paper clips for switches. The book can still be accessed in digital form at Archive.org here:

Japanese Youth In Revolt, 1964 by Michael Rougier

Japanese Youth, 1964 - LIFE Magazine

LIFE magazine published some previously unseen photographs by Michael Rougier, shot in Tokyo in 1964. The moody black and white picture capture a tribe of pill-popping rebellious youth. It’s an interesting time-warm to a time and a generation finding itself confined within a culture of traditional conformity.
