New York artist Michael Berens has started the Eleventh Hour Volunteer Assistance Project (EHVAP) to assist individuals who are fast approaching a deadline or the completion of a project and would benefit from his help during crunch time. He’ll give you a hand with putting up drywall or baking cookies, you’ve just got to apply. Check out the archive of his assistance. The project was funded in part by Josh Greene’s Serviceworks, another node in an expanding network of artists who provide each other with micro-grants

A group of Danish engineers have created a giant wave power generator of the coast of Nissum Bredning, Denmark. And they are building another 7 megawatt device off the coast of Wales. The Wave Dragon overtopping device elevates ocean waves to a reservoir above sea level where water is let out through a number of turbines. And these turbines are the only moving parts.

Matthew Mahon

So the Jersey-bred, Austin-based photographer Matthew Mahon has produced, hands-down, my favorite photo portfolio site. First off, his photos are good. But the way he presents them is fun, breezy and really entertaining. About a third of his photos have a little face icon on them that puts Mahon –and his assistant Hodgie– in the photos with the subjects as they explain the shot for you. You can’t stop until you click every one of them.

Attractive photos from Christoph Martin Schmid. I especially like the Fire in the Hood series. And the Trouble in Paradise folio has got some great stuff. Makes me wonder if Tina Barney’s photos would have turned out like this if she’d come from Southern California or South Africa. Read more about Schmid’s work in German or poorly translated English.
