Thursday, February 22nd, 2007

Laser-TagGive some graffiti artists a laser and see what they do with it? Tag buildings, of course! The Graffiti Research Lab is, in its own words, “dedicated to outfitting graffiti artists with open source technologies for urban communication”. And they’re coming up with some really cool stuff, such as L.A.S.E.R. Tag, LED Throwies (a must-see) and Drive-In GIF Theater.

Free SVG Vector ImagesIf you’re curious as to what the open source SVG vector format is capable of, then have a look at these free SVG images. The vectors are free for download, and created with Inkscape, which is, by chance, also open source. And this is only a glimpse of what can be done, if you have a look at the screenshots.

Typographic Pin-Ups

Typo Pin-UpsTaylor Lane merges typography with pin-up art in his calender series “Studio Pin-Ups“, and takes home an Epica Award while he’s at it. Every month, a new young lady is presented with a selected font and named accordingly, e.g. Miss Bodoni, Miss Gill, Miss Optima, etc. Oh, and depending on your employer, this might or might not be quite safe for work.

Rubikcubism

Sunday, February 11th, 2007

RubikcubismPixel art with rubik’s cubes: sounds like an obvious connection, that, until now, no one has really pulled off. Well, here it is. RUBIKCUBISM – a logical exhibition by French artist Invader featuring mosaics, video installation, and both small and large-scale sculptures. For the past five years, Invader has conducted worldwide “invasions” with custom site-specific mosaic pieces based on the 1978 video game “Space Invaders” created by Toshiro Nishikado; the streets of Paris, Tokyo, New York, London, and Los Angeles (among many others) have become components in his public art planetary invasion.

Wee PlanetsAmateur photographer Alexandre Duret-Lutz is putting together an inspiring portfolio of spherical panoramas.

Colored Smoke, Coffee and Milk

Friday, February 2nd, 2007

Colored SmokeGraham Jeffery of Sensitive Light has created some absolutely beautiful photography of colored smoke. I’m sort of reminded of Adobe splash screens, for whatever reasons (probably the color combinations). I’ve seen plenty of smoke photos but these really are stunning.

Coffee and MilkIn another bit of cool photography, Irene Müller lets milk meet coffee. A friend of mine was wondering what you need to get these kinds of shots. According to Irene, you need “Just a pipette or syringe, good eye/shutter finger coordination and patience, patience, patience…” Yup, I can imagine that…
