"This kettle works with the heat of an incandescent light bulb 100W, which the sale is forbidden since September, 2009 (in France). and which see ending their production and their existence within homes. So the revolutionary object finished its life sadly, demonized by the ecology. This project  just tries to pay a kind of tribute, staging the bulb, and its death.The kettle becomes out of order, its status of useful object crosses in a fraction of second, an object of memory, a “former” object. It really works, it does not bring the water to the boil but to an ideal temperature for tea: approximately 85 / 90°C." <3 this

Booster Station Zuid | GROUP A
"Booster Station-Zuid in Amsterdam is primarily a utility building which contains a technical plant, a pumping-engine for sluicing out sewage. The location in the public realm asks for a careful design, especially because Booster is located next to a busy traffic junction, where elevated metro lines, railways, roads and motorways intersect. The building can be seen as a metaphorical reference to a streamlined engine. The clinging, aerodynamic skin forms an envelope for the buildings technical program. It also emphasises the relation between form and function the building reveals its ducts. The constant stream of passengers by car, metro, train or bicycle perceive the Booster Station as a futuristic sculpture. With its cladding of stainless steel panels it reflects the movements, shapes and colours of the environment. At night the illuminated seams in the steal skin make the building look like a mesh-model. Mass turns into mesh."

When Sea Levels Attack
note that it uses the lowest elevation in a city, rather than an average. given the wide range of elevations in los angeles, this gives a rather distorted view of when we might all need to snorkle up.

Oil, Water, and the Sacred: Super/Natural Resources in Francophone Postcolonial Fiction « Interdisciplinary Humanities Center
probably can't make to santa barbara on a wednesday, but: "Focusing on Nan Bessora’s 2004 novel Petroleum... this paper argues that the ubiquitous deployment of 'natural resources' in francophone postcolonial fiction has always served as a means of figuring the properly political relationship between France and its former colonies and highlighting the resource-extractive politics of colonialism and neo-colonialism, but that it has recently come to signify broader cultural and eco-philosophical differences between metropole and postcolony. ... Political economy and symbolic economies are therefore overlaid in a text that productively troubles the divide between the environmental social sciences and the ostensibly “soft” eco-humanities."

City of Los Angeles :: Los Angeles River Revitalization
I was driving past some of this along the railroad tracks and such along san fernando near, of course of course, glassell park the other day. also it appears that we might someday not have a concrete river--this is basically a good thing, but I'm sure I'm not the only person who will miss the sublime aspect to an extent.

Two more L.A. water mains burst overnight, bringing more questions | L.A. NOW | Los Angeles Times
so we have a drought, we have the lowest municipal water usage in 32 years, we just had a major fire, and now ancient pipes are bursting all over the city. mystery = lack of comprehension of patterns of occurrence.

Water demand in Los Angeles reaches a 32-year low, DWP says - Los Angeles Times
fails to mention any connection with the amount of current rental vacancy--not everything is about virtuously not watering your lawn--my guess is that at least part of this statistic is related to what I perceive to be a concurrent drop in actual population. my perception is entirely anecdotal, but I'd be curious to see what the real stats show.
