Truthfully, some of these are downright gut wrenching. You’ve been warned. Compiled by Bored Pandathis series of illustrations was designed to get us to think differently about the way humans treat animals by having us trade places with them, creating a horrific parallel universe where humans are caged, tortured, and slaughtered.

It’s a terrifying premise, but sadly, also represents the reality for hundreds of millions of animals each day.

These images have the potential to open up so many discussion topics which perhaps people are already thinking about but have never dared explore out loud. These are the uncomfortable truths that hide just beneath the surface of world. We use animals for our entertainment, we eat them, we wear them, we experiment on them, and we use them to curb our own loneliness.

People can argue for and against animals rights ’till the cows come home, but that doesn’t change the fact that we as a species see animals as ‘less than’ or as inferior to us. There is plenty more I could say on this issue, but for now, let’s just have a look at these images and take some time to reflect on how they make us feel. If you are uncomfortable, it may because they hit closer to home than you’d like.

The Land of Stray Dogs, or Territorio de Zaguates in Costa Rica is considered one of the best places on the planet for a dog to live.

This sprawling refuge allows all of its 900 citizens to range free during the day. They are given fresh flowing water intermittently over the whole property and are given a bed in a sheltered structure where volunteers go to feed and bathe the dogs.

This free range sanctuary explores how a free range environment improves health and adoptability. It is a no kill shelter. Each dog is given a name and a unique breed name of their own (for their egos,

If you wish to adopt you can schedule a walking hike on their property, and if any of them choose you, you will be allowed to adopt them.
Of course, anyone is welcome to just come for a free hike to hang out with the dogs

Ghostly Images of WiFi Signals Captured Using Long Exposure Photography and an Android App

So much of the world today is invisible to cameras. Technology operates in a light-less world of zeroes and ones, electromagnetic waves that fly over our heads in ever-increasing abundance.

For his fascinating project Digital Ethereal, designer Luis Hernan set out to capture one of these invisible signals, WiFi, using a creative combination of long exposure photography and an Android app.

Since you can’t just set up your camera next to your router, click the shutter button and capture a ‘stream’ of information pouring out, Hernan decided to ‘translate’ that info into light and color using an Android app called Kirlian Device mobile that visualizes WiFi signal strength using a series of colors.

The resulting images reveal these invisible signals that Hernan says remind him of ghosts. From the Digital Ethereal project website:

I believe our interaction with this landscape of electromagnetic signals, described by Antony Dunne as Hertzian Space, can be characterized in the same terms as that with ghosts and spectra.

They both are paradoxical entities, whose untypical substance allows them to be an invisible presence. In the same way, they undergo a process of gradual substantiation to become temporarily available to perception. Finally, they both haunt us. Ghosts, as Derrida would have it, with the secrets of past generations. Hertzian space, with the frustration of interference and slowness.

Here’s a look at the rest of the series:
