That wavery house gives me the heebie-jeebies.

Looks like it was designed by Bloody Stupid Johnson!

It does look like a Johnson - though I don't see the exploding sundial, a Johnson "Typhoon" ablutorium or a ho-ho...

The "Sentient" picture by Erlend Mork is a recreation of the famous paint "L'île des morts", by Arnold Böcklin.

'...smoke "footprint" of civilization...'

It's not smoke. It's condensing water vapor.

...smoke footprint

It's not just nuclear, either. I'm a pilot, and I've seen the same effect from sugar beet processing plants, wood chip plants, etc.

I know that building in Paris and have walked by it; even close up, it's way funky. But it's actually not reflective, it's printed that way on the surface!
