#162; Mechanical Biology

Our mechanical biology - I love Fritz Kahn's illustrations of the body as an industrialised world. Click here for tons more.

Those Who Make is a curated list of videos showcasing people who do and make things. Lovely.

Can fonts make you more trustworthy? Very interesting experiment by Errol Morris in the New York Times. Times readers answered a quiz written in one of six different fonts, to see whether the font a passage is displayed in can make it seem more or less believable. I wonder if there's been any more substantial, "real" research into this?

If you're looking for some nuggets of interest, take a look through PBS' Off Book series on everything from typography to microscopy to glitch art.
