The Joint Space Operations Center (JSOC) opened in the McMurdo Antarctic station in January 2005. The building’s purpose is to unite the station’s computer and telephone systems into one dedicated hub. It houses the station's computer data center and telephone network. NASA uses it to track polar-orbiting scientific satellites and to operate weather satellite equipment for the U.S. Air Force. This type of computer data center generates so much heat that the building needs to be cooled down despite its Arctic location.

A man scavenges the streets of Rotterdam, picking up old doors and boards; materials considered worthless by others. He turns them into beautiful and spectacular works of art in his workshop, celebrating the inventiveness and perseverance of humanity as well as its frailty and failures. Welcome to the portfolio of Ron van der Ende. Just click the images. Any work is only two steps away.
