Great Design Series on Netflix

Just last night I watched the first episode of the new Netflix series “Abstract: The Art of Design”, featuring illustrator Christoph Niemann. Perhaps it was just that Niemann’s work is so interesting and funny, but the show seems delightful. I’m planning on showing my kids, since I think they will get as much out of […]

Quick and Dirty Casting

How this appeared in my YouTube feed, I don’t recall. Nonetheless, a popular Youtuber by the name of Grant has tons of interesting how-to videos on molding and casting. He seems to do most of his projects on the cheap — for example, smelting soda cans in a forge made with a metal bucket, sand, […]

Hair Makes Everything More Wonderful

Really not entirely sure how I feel about this. Sure, they’re amazing. But I’m glad I’m not eating anything prepared in this kitchen!! http://people.hws.edu/chin/ChristineChinWebsite/SentientKitchen/index.html

Hiding Fine Art Inside Popular Art

I came across this piece in the New York Times today: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/04/11/arts/design/woody-woodpecker-and-shamus-culhanes-animation.html I’ve long known about animators inserting cameos in their work. But this was quite new. And the idea of inserting different kinds of art as transitional backgrounds or tonal matte paintings is a great one. I’ll have to think on that a bit!

Egg Decorating Robot

Toddling around an Instructables email (totally wonderful daily distractions!) I came across the EggBot. This dandy device can do awesome decorations on eggs. Just in time for Easter! More info at Evil Mad Scientist’s site.

Reef of Humans

I’m always amazed at these kinds of projects — the amount of work and money that goes into such a thing. Really wonderful and it will be interesting to see how the reef changes over time. I’d better update my diving certification and start saving for a trip to Cancun!! http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/culturevideo/artvideo/8056214/Underwater-sculpture-park-set-to-open-near-Cancun.html

Tiny Inventions Studio

Thanks to friend Jim for letting me know about these artists. They have some wonderfully creative stuff and use a combination of puppetry, stop motion, line animation, and computer animation — truly living the dream of many current animators! http://tinyinventions.com/ Here is their independent 10-minute film: Something Left, Something Taken Something Left, Something Taken- Full […]

MRIs of Fruit

Very interesting to see so visually the structural commonalities of different fruits and vegetables. But I have to say it’s a bit surreal to have all the videos playing at once! http://insideinsides.blogspot.com/
