It turns out the Romans loved to shop as much as we do. They had recently perfected the art of cement making and decided to put their new skill to some immediate use by building an obscenely big (for its time) shopping complex. Trajan’s Market featured more than 150 different rooms among four different levels, including countless stores, storage rooms, and “public assistance” offices – we’re now imagining mall law offices owned by cheap Lionel Hutz-caliber lawyers.

At Trajan’s Market, Romans could buy silver, gold, textiles, clothing, decorations, soaps, cosmetics, and, of course, food to stuff their faces with: There were all sorts of eateries, lounges, taverns, and probably an Orange Julius. Having trouble imagining what an ancient fast food joint looked like? Well, there’s one in the ruins of Pompeii, and it’s basically an Iron Age McDonald’s.

Food or drink would be served in the holes on the counter you see up there. This wasn’t just a Pompeii thing, since archeological studies have found that Romans, in general, loved to eat on the go – they lived in tiny quarters with no space for a stove, so they’d just buy takeout food from any of the “numerous fast food restaurants” across the empire.

7 Modern Conveniences That Are Way Older Than You Think

Observe the Heart · 观心

Performance from Shi Weili presents the artist in meditative state, illustrated with realtime projected visuals read from an EEG headset:

If you ask a Zen master how to meditate, he might answer you, “Observe the heart.” But the heart is so abstract to imagine, not even to mention observation. Observe the Heart is an artistic attempt to represent the meditator’s mental state, generating visuals and sounds based on realtime brainwave input. The generative visuals are projected back onto the meditator, transforming the introspective meditation into an observable performance, in a sense.

There is more to tell about the concept. While third-party audiences can watch and hear one’s meditation, the meditator themselves couldn’t experience the generative contents in real time (given that they close their eyes during the meditation, and may even wear earplugs to block the sound). It is then questionable who is this meditation for. Moreover, the meditator will nonetheless be curious about how their meditation looks and sounds like, and this mental activity will be captured by the brainwave sensor and be reflected by the generative output. Therefore, it could make it even harder for the meditator to really “observe the heart”.
