To villages, infrastructure may have been a needless luxury, but for cities, it is the lifeline. As humans lived in ever closer proximity with one another out of want or necessity, various forms of communication through tools, artifacts, and decorations emerged, and a new system of trust within each other emerged. Infrastructure can be seen as part of that dialogue between the implementer - the government, local authorities - and the consumers - the residents. Roads, signs, transportation links are built, then being used, vandalized, or even re purposed and refined to the needs of the consumers of this infrastructure.

At first glance, solitary confinement may seem to a burnt out city dweller to be a peaceful, even if unpleasant episode. In reality, the treatment is more akin to contact-less torture. Humans are social in their core, and such experiences can cause permanent psychological harm.

This is Gardian's first virtual experience app that together with the audio documentary, helps one get a glimpse of the harrowing life inside a 6 by 9 cell.

The story of Lego - its original meaning in Danish meaning "play well". It's the invention of a Danish carpenter who decided to make high quality toys, first with wood, then with the bricks we know now.

When the inventor of the brick went to the patent office to claim its unique binding system, he was asked how many combinations could 6 bricks, each 4 by 2 in dimensions, be formed. He thought it was a bit more than 100 million. He was wrong, of course. Recently, a math professor pegged at 900 million (915,103,765 to be exact). 6 bricks - imagine how many combination for a box set. It is a toy at once mathematically finite but with practically infinite possibilities.

This film has the history of the company, its near bankruptcy in recent history, its new direction in embracing user engagement, and the multitude and variety of ways Legos are serving as more than a toy - as artistic expression, tools for simulation modeling, and therapy for autism.
