Mt. Tanigawa is listed in the 100 famous mountains in Japan. Since its initial exploration and route-finding in the early 1930s, a total of 781 people have died on Mt. Tanigawa. This is the highest number of climbing fatalities for any mountain in the world (compared with over 200 people who have died on Mt. Everest over a similar period).
In essence, Intersections is all about that brief moment of time when the water of the sea blurs with the clouds of a stormy sky and creates a unique and abstract fleeting moment. When the fury of the ocean seems to take a breath before inexorably and inevitably starting again with the next wave.”
As the world’s largest online retailer, Amazon needs somewhere to put all of those products. The solution? Giant warehouses. Eighty to be exact. Strategically located near key shipping hubs around the world. The warehouses themselves are massive, with some over 1.2 million square feet in size (111,484 sq m). And at the heart of this global operation are people (over 65,000 of them), and a logistics system known as chaotic storage.
Chaotic storage is like organized confusion. It’s an organic shelving system without permanent areas or sections. That means there is no area just for books, or a place just for televisions (like you might expect in a retail store layout). The product’s characteristics and attributes are irrelevant. What’s important is the unique barcode associated with every product that enters the warehouse.
