Art of the Catacomb
Denise Rouleau and Mark D Roberts view mummies in a curious way. They are repugnant and at the same time captivating. “The framework for the catacombs consists mainly of vintage type-face cases which are disassembled and reworked into unique pieces of architecture to house the mummy figures.” There is also an eerie video about their work.
This exhibition might remind you of the existence of Paris Catacombs where nearly six million unmarked skeletal remains line the tunnels for miles…
Strange Tank Monster
This picture is somewhat of a mystery. Wojciech K. writes to us: “I’ve found (without any information and details) this picture of a tank based hoover/blower. Some people suggested that it’s a mobile fog/smoke generator. I personally think that this may be for blowing water onto burning oil wells.” Any other ideas?

UPDATE: This is “Progrev (Warming Up) – T”, Russian mine-sweep tank with a jet engine from the aircraft! Blew the soil to open mines. It was tested (successfully) in Afghanistan. More info (in Russian), via.
