Photographer Alberto Seveso uses high-speed photography to capture ink mixing with water to create fluid, dynamic images that make the ink look so tactile that it seems like silk. Via butdoesitfloat.com (more…)
All the birds shown are three dimensional models, I made from thin paper. They are lifesize, and very realistic in colour and detail. I make the birds (and other animals) from paper templates. The templates are handcoloured with watercolour and gouache before assembling.
Some of the birds are scanned before putting together. In this way I can make a few birds, using the same design.
In Stranger Visions artist Heather Dewey-Hagborg creates portrait sculptures from analyses of genetic material collected in public places. Working with the traces strangers unwittingly leave behind, Dewey-Hagborg calls attention to the impulse toward genetic determinism and the potential for a culture of genetic surveillance.
mes capper creates large sculptural works which take on forms that resemble industrial tools and machinery, from hydraulic pumps, tractor blades to cutting claws and spindles of a milling machine. his purpose? to generate new functions for already familiar objects–in this case the mechanical apparatuses are paired with large blocks of plaster which the british artist ‘attacks’ with his conceived devices, considering them much like ‘drawing machines’ which he uses to carve and make markings on the white chunks of material. here, the performative aspect of the work becomes just as important as the tools themselves.
X-Tu Architects, a French firm, creates a 3D topographical map using extruded metal tubes to make a sinuous curvature around chocolatier Patrick Roger’s Paris boutique. Roger’s chocolate sculptures explore the changing (edible) states of chocolate, from molten to solid and back again, and x-tu mimics this by showing how a seemingly linear form, a metal tube, can be given curvilinear shape.

PixiVisor is software for desktop (Mac, Windows, Linux) and mobile (iOS, Android) that transforms images to sound and back again. Producing sound from images is an idea in a variety of tools. But PixiVisor is unique in that it goes the other way, too: sound can be turned back into the originally imagery as a video. In the demo video here from developer Alexander Zolotov, a simple audio mixer can mix together multiple video sources (in beautiful low fidelity), and add effects. A DIY 4-pole plug connects the signal to the mobile gadget – iOS, in this case.
PixiVisor is a revolutionary tool for audio-visual experiments. Simple and fun, cross-platform application with unlimited potential for creativity!
It consists of two parts: Transmitter and Receiver.
Transmitter converts the video (static 64×64 image or 10FPS animation) to sound, pixel by pixel (progressive scan). This lets you listen to the sound of your image. But the main function of the Transmitter is to transmit the signal to the receiving devices.
Receiver converts the sound (from microphone or Line-in input) back to video. You can set the color palette for this video, and record it to animated GIF file.
“We’re an art company on the outside and a tech company on the inside,” says Acworth. “Our customers come to us for art and service. Under the hood it’s these technologies that we’re developing every day that make us good at that.”
Artaic was established in 2007 to make the beauty and artistry of the mosaic medium more accessible. With the creation of sophisticated design software and an innovative robotic mosaic assembly system Artaic brings the ancient art of mosaic to a new level.
German artist Carsten Nicolai‘s work often involves mathematical patterns and phenomena. In new work crt mgn showing at the EIGEN + ART gallery in Berlin he uses cathode ray TVs and pendulums to visualize the magnetic field—something which is usually invisible to human perception.
