Technological Mandala 02

September 20th, 2012

Lately I have this weakness for electronic components, I even solder some small things from time to time. So when I found “Technological mandala 02″ by Leonardo Ulian, I was like ‘yes, I’m not the only one who appreciates aesthetics of electric components’.

1962

August 7th, 2012

1962 is project by Raphaël Bastide which isn’t that easy to explain. 1962 are sculptures conceptualized using a revision control system and represented physically. Euh … again, Raphaël made a sculpture and documented it on github, a service primarily used by programmers to document and save their code. Then he started to make changes (revisions) to it and also documented those on github. Now you can build that sculpture, thanks to the documentation and you can even modify it as long as you document it on github and let Raphaël know.
It might sound quite nerdy and it is, but it is still very interesting to see this kind of workflow in the process of creating art.

Asobi

August 6th, 2012

“Asobi” is Yasutoki Kariya’s version of a Newton’s cradle, which you probably know as a desktop toy. Yasutoki made a version with light bulbs which illustrate the transfer of kinetic energy. If you look closely to the video, you will notice that the outer bulbs don’t touch the other ones. But it’s still a very nice installation.
