Interesting views of Light

0

This is a pretty interesting experiment in art and light from Akinori Goto.  The short video below shows the process. It’s neat, sort of a modern version of the Zoetrope.  This wouldn’t be possible without 3-D printing.  Or at the very least, it would be insanely difficult to construct. This next video shows a much more … Continued

Remember, Remember

The 7th of December When the Japs secured their fate The years numbered four But we evened the score And it was surely worth the wait That’s a good version of the The fifth of November poem.  Sure there are more lines that I’m not adding to, but honestly, who else remembers anything except the … Continued

Wooden Cities

0

James McNabb is a furniture maker, he uses a bandsaw to make these intricate city skylines out of discarded, and unusable scraps of wood.  I really like the above table.  Especially using the taller buildings as the legs.  It’s not practical for sitting around, or putting stuff under, but it does look cool. While these … Continued

Geode Skulls

0

I gotta say, these things look so ace.  The skills and craftsmanship that is necessary to carve them are amazing.  It’s also important to find geodes that are large enough to get a fully sized skull out of them.  Well, maybe not exactly life-sized.  But larger than a keychain anyway. As you can expect though, … Continued

Interactive Paper

0

That’s a nice innocent easy to make drawing. Dutch Artist HuskMitNavn has these really interesting somewhat interactive drawing sculptures on paper that he’s made. That one’es not bad either.  Ok, the cutting of the toothpaste stream would be challenging, but it would probably only take one try. Yea ok, I don’t know quite how the … Continued

Ash’s House

0

Well, it looks like it anyway.  Instagram user Pixelized Creations made this really dang good representation of the generic house from Pokemon complete with a garden, and Ash battling Gary. What’s even better, and somewhat hard to tell from the above angled photo is that it’s a 3-D representation of the scene.  The monochrome colors … Continued

Circuit Board Art

0

Old circuit boards had a certain beauty to them.  All those delicate lines of silver solder connecting components together.  They had a two part purpose – you could actually repair something if necessary, and they looked pretty cool.  With the ever increasing levels of optimization we get smaller and smaller components and we loose this … Continued

New Moon

0

The above video shows a really neat interactive art installation made of welded steel, light bulbs, and LEDs.  The purpose is to allow people to see all the phases of the moon at once.  Turning the knob below the moon turns a mirror inside the light bulb moon which in turn changes the shadow effect … Continued

737 Chair

0

Have you ever wondered how big the engines on a commercial airplane are?  They don’t look too big on the wings of planes right?  Well, this my friends is the cowling of the engine from a Boeing 737.  What exact engine model is not said, but that doesn’t really matter much does it?  The multi … Continued

Gunpowder Painting

0

Wyoming artist Danny Shervin uses gunpowder to make his art.  Yes, he does exactly what you are thinking, places each individual grain of gunpowder in a design, and lights it on fire.  I understand that hours are spent hand placing each grain, what I don’t understand is the prices he’s commanding for his art.  I guess … Continued
