Your Waste of Time

May 15th, 2013

An other module of the EXPO 1: New York exhibition was the sculpture “Your Waste of Time” by Olafur Eliasson. He placed several massive pieces of ice that broke off from Iceland’s largest glacier, Vatnajökull, in a big room that was cooled down below 0°. The oldest ice in the glacier is estimated to have originated some 800 years ago. Of course the power needed to do this, comes from solar panels that were installed especially on the roof of the MoMA PS1.
You can experience this sculpture at the MoMA PS1 in NYC till September 2nd.

This photograph by Frans Lanting is just stunning, he made it in Namibia and this is its description on the National Geographic website: “Tinted orange by the morning sun, a soaring dune is the backdrop for the hulks of camel thorn trees in Namib-Naukluft Park.”

Rectified Flowers

July 9th, 2010

Golan Levin and Kyle McDonald wrote a piece of software to unwrap the 360-degree panoramic digital videos of the Sony Bloggie. But then they modified their software to unwrap photos of flowers. The results are stunning.
You can download the open-source code here and you’ll have to run it with Processing.

Horsetail Firefall

This photo was made by Rob Kroenert on February 18th 2010 in the Yosemite National Park. Every year during the month of February, the Horsetall Falls turn golden around sunset. Amazing.

EDIT March 4th 2011
I’ve just found this video about the Horsetail Firefall at Boing Boing. Worth watching!
