Behold: the Ferrari 488 Pista – a turbocharged,V8, 710bhp track car (or ‘weekend racer’ for those with €240,000 to invest in such a thing).
100km/h in less than 3s, 340km/h top speed and a Side Slip Angle Control system to keep it stuck to the road.
Profligate, but ever so pretty.
A chain reaction marble run perfectly synchronised with Tchaikovsky’s by kinetic artist Waltz of the Flowers Mark Robbins, who sez of it:

Something new from Aidan Lawlor and Luan James Geary.

Cavern (1983) by New York new wave band
Liquid Liquid – the song that became the backing track of White Lines (Don’t Do It) by Grandmaster Flash.
Rang Dang Digga Duh Dang Duh Dang.

“After the recent campaign against yet another tax forced upon the great people of Ireland, I decided to produce this track using actual audio I recorded at public marches, “No way – we won’t pay”. Irish water and the Irish Government need to listen to the people for once. We have been listening to them for too long. Democracy “is what it is”.”
