When Jon had barely turned 13, he was told that his father had ‘passed’. “Wait a week,” his mother reassured him, “He will pass back.” Jon had learned in school that humans are data cattle; our every move is tracked by an algorithm that has learned our behavior patterns. “What is an all-go-reeth-em?” Jon had asked his mother when he was young. “It’s you. It learns from you. It continues as you even after you pass,” she explained. Her response was simple and heartening, but it created more questions for the curious child. Every night before sleeping, he wondered, “But is it still me?” No one cried when Jon’s father passed. When the hard disk arrived a week later, his mom looked rather relieved. 100 terabytes of his father’s essence - a virtual tomb or a resurrection? Jon recalled a recent newspaper advertisement, “You can be one in a million (literally!) A beautiful server farm you can retire to. Your personality will always be part of a productive society, economy AND even politics!” A forbidden thought snuck into Jon’s mind. He suppressed it and smiled at his dad-disk, while his mother beamed. “Where do we really go after death?” . . .
The Mutual Building has got to be one of my fave buildings in Cape Town! It was built in the late 30's as Mutual Life Assurance (Old Mutual) head office. It has since been converted into residential space. This is the old Assembly Room that has recently been revamped. It is definitely up there on the list of the most beautiful spaces I've had the opportunity to shoot.

Concurs. Centre de dia i centre de salut a Sant Martí Sarroca. Un edifici concebut com una estructura modular de fusta que difumina els límits entre interior i paisatge per esdevenir un aixopluc del nou programa. Amb @m4arc_manzano i @vickywikitoria
Competition. Day center for seniors and health center in Sant Martí Sarroca, Barcelona. A building that is conceived as a modular wood structure that eliminates the boundaries between interior and the landscape to become a shelter for the new program. With @m4arc_manzano i @vickywikitoria
Clifftop House. Many people aren’t aware, but this project is actually a renovation and extension within an inner-city character zone. A defining JAA project. We look forward to our next build with the talented @mcd_construction. Wonderfully captured by @scottburrowsphotographer.
