I first wrote about Italian photographer and digital artist Albert Seveso late last year when he published a series of his first ink photographs called Disastro Ecologico. His latest project involves little LEGO guys surfing waves of delicately rolling blue ink. It’s hard to believe these are even real. See the full series entitled Ink Riders.

A beautiful music video for Loose Fit by UK animator Abbie Stephens using an interesting subtractive technique where film stills were printed on standard printer paper and then carefully torn. From Vimeo:
Firstly a full days live action shoot took place. After a preliminary edit was locked down the movie was exported as an image sequence at 12 frames per second. Each frame was scaled and printed onto paper. 2’520 frames to be precise. Using 500ml of ink and refilling the ink cartridges about 12 times each. The printouts were then cut and torn and then stop frame animated using a rostrum camera. The animation was finally re-edited and colour corrected.
Check out some shots from the making of:

‘Box’ is a 2006 installation by Argentinian artist Pablo Curutchet that was installed in the city of Cordoba. The enormous man who appears to be emerging from a river Godzilla-style, was constructed of 882 pounds (400 kg) of cardboard boxes with a team of roughly a dozen people. (via designboom)>
Akinobu makes architectural models for a living in Tokyo, but in his spare time he creates all matter of small objects in bottles. These pinky sized dinosaur skeletons are especially awesome. (via bb)
Lucie Thomas and Thibault Zimmermann are the wunderkind designers behind the contemporary design studio Zim and Zou based in Nancy, France. The duo explores a myriad of mediums including paper sculpture, installation, graphic design, illustration, and web design for their clients, landing their work in numerous print publications including Papercraft 2. This latest collection of work entitled Back to Basics is almost a year in the making (and apparently still in progress). Each colorful device is cut meticulously by hand utilizing sustainable paper, and even the smallest “waste” scraps are re-used to form some of the smallest detailed components. These are only a handful of the photos, see many more detailed shots here. Also check out their paper Gameboy from a while back. Sweet!
The Singapore Eye Research Institute commissioned Jorg Sundermann to capture these abstracted photos of eyes to help raise awareness for eye research. See the entire series over on Behance.
