Roman Opałka

September 15th, 2011

Roman Opałka was a French-born Polish painter who painted numbers. In 196 he began painting a process of counting – from one to infinity. Starting in the top left-hand corner of the canvas and finishing in the bottom right-hand corner, the tiny numbers were painted in horizontal rows. As of July 2004, he had reached 5.5 million.

Compressed 02

September 1st, 2011

Kim Pimmel combined everyday soap bubbles with exotic ferrofluid liquid to create an eerie tale, using macro lenses and time lapse techniques. Black ferrofluid and dye race through bubble structures, drawn through by the invisible forces of capillary action and magnetism. Watch it fullscreen!

Undef Printer

August 29th, 2011

Here’s an other receipt printer project by undef: undef printer. This time you can decide what it should print, well actually you will have to write some simple code to do so. I’ve made variation of my TT pattern, which I did for the Pa++ern project 2 years ago. Anyway, you can try it out till October 8th, it is part of the “Tra me e ciò che è in me” exhibition in Grono, Switzerland.

Here’s my “code”, I guess there’s a smarter way to achieve my pattern.

Eternity is a collaboration between Alicia Eggert and Mike Fleming. They mounted 30 clocks on a large sheet of white acrylic and aligned the 36 hours and minutes hands is such a way that they spell ETERNITY. Every 12 hours you can read the word. I’ve posted similar projects before, I just really like them.
Make sure to check Alicia’s other project called Wonder.

ADA – analog interactive installation

August 17th, 2011

ADA is an analog interactive installation made by Karina Smigla-Bobinski. It’s helium filled sphere spiked with charcoal pieces, trapped in a white room. I guess it’s quite clear what happens as soon as someone interacts with the sphere …

One sentence contained within every HTML tag in random order

August 16th, 2011

Jason Kottke suggested today that some should make a random version of Evan Roth‘s classic “One sentence contained within every HTML tag in alphabetical order“. And that’s exactly what Marc Cohen did: One sentence contained within every HTML tag in random order. Reload the page a few times!

A few months ago, Nicolas Sassoon made an architectural proposal for the online art collective Computers Club. I already liked it back then, but he produced and released an altered version, in just black and white, for ”STREET SHOW: The Things Between US”. Watch it in HD!

Thermochromic Clock

July 18th, 2011

You could say that the “Thermochromic Clock” by CW&T looks like any other 4-digit 7-segment timepiece, but this one just works quite different.

Each segment in the display is made with a length of nichrome wire and then covered by a thick layer of black thermochromic paint. Time is displayed by applying voltage to the nichrome wire. As the wire sustains an electric current, it heats up the surrounding thermochromic paint, causing it to become transparent.

I want one.

Electronic Instant Camera

July 5th, 2011

Niklas Roy is on a roll, Electronic Instant Camera is an other new project by him. It’s a combination of an analog b/w videocamera and a thermal receipt printer.

The device is something in between a Polaroid camera and a digital camera. The camera doesn’t store the pictures on film or digital medium, but prints a photo directly on a roll of cheap receipt paper while it is taking it. As this all happens very slow, people have to stay still for about three minutes until a full portrait photo is taken.

I really like the look of the prints! Could you take my picture Niklas?

Eternal Flame

t-radya made these impressive portraits of fallen Russian WWII soldiers. The faces were made of bandages on wooden boards and were then burned to create this particular look. Afterwards, the portraits were put up on the walls of an abandoned WWII hospital in Yekaterinburg, Russia.
