Newell: Steam Box’s challenge will come from Apple, not consoles – Games: PC, DS, PlayStation, Xbox & Wii

Steam co-founder Gabe Newell has spoken candidly with a class at the University of Texas’ LBJ School of Public Affairs, saying that rather than next-gen consoles, it’s Apple that will be the biggest challenge as Valve tries to bring Steam and the Steam Box into the lounge room.

An Architect Gone Mad

Without the use of a camera Portland-based artist Jim Kazanjian sifts through a library of some 25,000 images from which he carefully selects the perfect elements to digitally assemble mysterious buildings born from the mind of an architect gone mad. While the architectural and organic pieces seem wildly random and out of place, Kazanjian brings just enough cohesion to each structure to suggest a fictional purpose or story that begs to be told. You can see much more of his work over on Facebook, and prints are available at 23 Sandy Gallery.
