Finding shoes on a beach, brutalist mosques in Australia, new typefaces from Apple and more.

I have been really bad at up-keep of this blog. But anyway, here we go;

414 million pieces of plastic found on remote island group in Indian Ocean (The Guardian) — Debris on Cocos (Keeling) Islands was mostly bottles, cutlery, bags and straws, but also included 977,000 shoes, study says.

A new mosque in Australia shows Islamic architecture going beautifully brutalist (Frameweb) — located in Punchbowl (a dense, diverse suburb of Sydney), this modern mosque looks superb. Designed by local firm Candalepas Associates.

Pierre Kwenders performs Amours d’Été (YouTube) — Congolese-Canadian artist Pierre Kwenders serves up a silky smooth performance of ‘Amours d’Été’ on Colors.

Apple’s new typeface is available for use right now (It’s Nice That) — Whilst it’s been seen in the Books apps since late last year, Apple released the font New York for free. It seems like a rehash of the serif typeface of the same name that designer Susan Kare debuted on the Macintosh back in 1983. Looks nice, though.

Chernobyl (HBO) — If you have a HBO subscription, or the ability to use torrents, check out the TV series Chernobyl – the dramatised story of the 1986 nuclear accident.
