Implemented a drag-and-drop rule editor, similar to the one in "Desert of the Real".

Here I'm dragging patterns and references to rules from the top menu into slots of the first rules.

Each rule has slots for each quadrant and one fallback pattern (on the left) that's used when the squares get too small.

Unknown Fields Division, a nomadic design studio, have used mud from a lake in Inner Mongolia to craft a set of three ceramic vessels. Each is proportioned as a traditional Ming vase and is made from the amount of toxic waste created in the production of three items of technology – a smartphone, a featherweight laptop and the cell of a smart car battery.
