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. Exploring Baxter's site, I found her work from 2011 was just as engaging, if not as provocative. It can be fascinating when an artist's oeuvre is clearly [...]

Ranging from the musical and visual wonder of oscillating guitar strings to cameos carved from the creamy center of Oreo cookies, last month's top posts are eclectic, though with one consistent thread, almost all of them are art oriented. Thank you for continuing to surprise us with your enthusiasm and support.  This month, we will be [...]

The Mona Lisa 6239 dots and 9 hours later

Thomas Pavitte couldn't find a record for the most complex dot-to-dot drawing, using the iconic Mona Lisa as his muse, he decided to set one himself. To begin he created an A0 poster with dots numbered from 1 to 6,329, and broke down the image.     The result is a visual nod to a classic, and a [...]

Robotic Seagull Attracts an Actual Flock of Seagulls

Not sure what to make of this video of a robotic seagull which is powered simply by the motion of its wings.  The robot attracted an actual flock of seagulls during a test flight at TEDGlobal 2011, the annual five-day technology conference in Edinburgh, Scotland.  With obvious applications for policing and spying, the video of this device [...]

Josh Boston : Let the Beat Ride

Josh Boston describes himself thus : I'm tall, I make stuff, I like words and animal metaphors. He's also good at ideas : Let the Beat Ride was a one-night exhibit in San Diego that explored the relationships between sound, rhythm, human speech and how those are understood from a visual perspective.   The results, created in partnership [...]

BirdProject : Restore The Gulf Habitat Bird by Bird

It's a little daunting sometimes, the sheer volume of things to be conscious of.  Global warming, the global economy, the state of the environment, the BP Oil Spill...remember that, the BP Oil Spill of April 20, 2010...and its aftermath? It does seem to have dropped off mainstream media's radar.  Nonetheless, designer Tippy Tippens [...]

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 [...]

Evan Drolet Cook : Places I Haven’t Been (North America)

This piece by Evan Drolet Cook got me thinking about perception, and hubris, and how for the most part, our reputation around the world has the taint of arrogance and naïveté when it comes to world view.  Obviously, for some of us, this is not the case, but in general, Cook's rendition of the North American map is a good reminder of all we [...]
