Debra Baxter’s Crystal Sculptures Aligns your Chakras…not

Yesterday I came across Debra Baxter's work on Google+, while checking out Gerrel Saunders.  He showed an image of crystal "brass" knuckles from 2009, which were intriguing.

Jer Thorp : Data Visualization, the Long Tail & Connections

Even after all this time, I'm still amazed at the long tail, and how likeminds find each other.   I was playing around with Google+, and came upon Jer Thorp, who is the data artist in residence at The New York Times.  As I clicked around, I came across an award-winning project he did a number of years ago called Petals, which I remembered [...]
