Rochester-based artist Andy Gilmore turns math into art, creating hypnotizing and kaledscopic patterns that are heavily influenced by patterns he encounters in nature as well as music. The prolific artist has numerous commercial clients including Wired, Nike, and the New York Times, but has also released his own visual compositions through Ghostly International Editions since 2010. Gilmore just released a new body of work and sat down with Ghostly in the video above to talk about his process and influence. (via Colossal Submissions, and thnx Steve!)

Sponsor // GoThinkBig & Rizzle Kicks Team Up On Music Video Project to Provide Work Experience to Young People

GoThinkBig – a work experience and internship initiative launched by O2 – recently teamed up with chart-topping duo Rizzle Kicks to recruit almost 100 young people in the UK to help produce the music video for their new single, “Lost Generation.”

The project offered these young people a unique opportunity to kick-start their career by landing a work placement as part of the production team for the music video, while being mentored by the best professional production cast in the industry.

A huge range of positions were made available across a variety of roles, from runners to stage hands, make-up artists to cast, camera crew to directors, producers, and editors—and in the marketing and promotion departments.

Watch a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot and check out other great work experience opportunities at gothinkbig.co.uk, or on Facebook and Twitter.

Back in February we first explored an ongoing project called Head Like an Orange (previously) by a Netherlands-based artist named Marinus who isolates key segments of nature films, often just a split second in length, and uses the footage to create beatiful, whimsical, and strangely poetic gifs. These are a few of my favorites from the last several months but you can see much more right here.

Manifest Station: A Transparent Utility Box Painted by Mona Caron

Manifest Station: A Transparent Utility Box Painted by Mona Caron trompe loeil street art painting optical illusion murals

This fun piece was painted by illustrator and muralist Mona Caron on Duboce Avenue at Church Street in San Francisco. Titled Manifest Station, the small mural was painted on a standard utility box and has to be viewed from a specific spot so that the horizon lines of the artwork match those of the actual intersection. As an added bonus, a mural in the background which was repainted in part on the utility box is actually an older piece by the same artist. Caron is currently working on a surprisngly great series of weeds and just painted a giant wildflower in Union City. (via CJWHO)

I’m really enjoying the visuals in this series of four idents for CCTV that translate human motion into digitally sculpted objects that look like steel, water, and wood. The clips were created by Taiwan design house JL Design and KORB. If you liked this also check out the photography of Shinichi Maruyama or Choros.

Currently living and working in Toronto, artist Gosia recently completed work on a series of beautiful sculpted busts made from polymer clay and gypsum. Titled Pearl, Luna, and Eva the works are an extension of her earlier paintings and are her first foray into sculpting. The artist shares via email:

It is an absolute thrill and pleasure to sculpt. Just as the final pieces have more dimension so does the experience of creating them. With every new figure I fight an internal “battle” of staying true to my posing model and creating someone from my imagination. The result ends up somewhere in between with elements inspired by neo-romanticism and fantasy.

Pearl, Luna and Eva are the first pieces in an ongoing series of originals created from casts of one bust. I had modeled a bald figure, made a mold and cast what i like to call my “blank canvases”. I then hand model unique details on each piece, just as you would to a blank canvas, creating “someone” new each time.

The new pieces will be on view at a show at Wall Space Art Gallery in Ottawa starting October 10th. You can see much more on her website.

An Illegal Mountain Constructed Atop a 26-Story Residential Building in Beijing

While most property and homeowners might be lucky to erect a small fence, add a new wall, or plant a few trees without applying for a permit or checking local zoning laws, things in Bejing are apparently quite different. For the last six years an eccentric doctor built a sprawling mountain villa on the roof above his top-floor flat in this 26-story residential building, all without asking permission of residents or local authorities. The enormous addition covers the entire 1000-square-metre roof and was built using artificial rocks but with real trees and grass.

It only took six years of complaints from neighbors who suffered from the noise and vibrations of heavy construction machinery, water leaks, and other disturbances to finally get the attention of authorities who recently gave the man 15 days to remove the mountain or else it will face forcible removal. Read more over on the South China Morning Post. (via dezeen)
