Klimcentrum Bjoeks in Groningen, Netherlands sports the world’s tallest climbing wall at just over 121 feet tall. Here’s a cool photo gallery of how it was built, section by section. My dad would see this and say, “Eh, I’ve seen bigger.” Photos above by Eric Kieboom. (via presurfer)

An installation by Michael Fernandes at Scotiabank Nuit Blanche in Toronto, an all-night contemporary art event held earlier this month.

What are you up to? Who are you? What do you miss? What do you want? […] A few of the possible set of questions that prompters will ask you. Then, your responses are transcribed onto large blackboards. The aim of this participatory project is to solicit and register a broad sense of ‘travel’. With continuous prying, the prompters encourage responses that are based on life experience, interpersonal relationships as well as the specifics of being ‘here’ and ‘there’.
