Last week while visiting London we came across this super creepy hologram-like projected woman at the Kings Cross railway station. First she waves at you, then points in your direction and gestures for you to come over. Once close enough she politely instructs you not to take your luggage on the escalator.
In 2012 I encountered a similar projected woman at the Newark Liberty International Airport.
“I wanted to comment on the tragic rift that we’re witnessing,” Bob Staake says about his cover for the December 8 issue, arriving next week. “I lived in St. Louis for seventeen years before moving to Massachusetts, so watching the news right now breaks my heart. At first glance, one might see a representation of the Gateway Arch as split and divided, but my hope is that the events in Ferguson will provide a bridge and an opportunity for the city, and also for the country, to learn and come together.”
Back in 2008 Staake created the iconic “Reflection” cover illustration of The New Yorker after President Obama was elected to office.
