Similar to a camera capturing multiple exposures in a single image, artist Katie Grinnan created this sculptural time-lapse of her body moving through a daily yoga routine using sand, plastic, and enamel. The end result is representative of both time and form as each split second is layered onto the last creating what is both a singular figure and many. Ginnan describes this as an exploration of “peripersonal” space. “Mirage focuses on the concept of peripersonal space, the space that your body encompasses at its most extended point in every direction, which describes the body’s potential boundary.” Images courtesy Brennan and Griffin. If you like this, make sure you’re familiar with the works of Sukhi Barber and Paige Bradley.

Speaking of yoga and the passage of time, I found this time-lapse video of Meghan Currie’s yoga routine set to Philip Glass pretty enchanting if not completely exhausting. I knew certain poses required extreme flexibility and strength but this just seems like inhuman endurance. (via stellar)

Words Can Fly: A 3D Typographic Poster in Support of Fukushima, Japan typography paper origami Japan birds

This beautiful typographic poster made of folded paper was designed and constructed by Montreal-based designers Kyosuke Nishida, Brian Li and Dominic Liu for the Words Can Fly A Thousand Miles Project. The piece shows a number of origami cranes bursting through the surface of carefully crafted type. Via their website:

This design was inspired by the Japanese traditional custom, Senbazuri, which means a group of a thousand origami cranes. It is customary to fold these cranes to wish someone luck. We wanted to pay tribute to this custom through the process of constructing the paper sculpture.

The words on the poster were inspired by the instant encouragement and consoling words that Japanese people were able to receive just after the tsunami and earthquakes hit Japan, through social networking services such as Facebook and Twitter.

The project is currently accepting financial donations and handwritten notes in an attempt to console and encourage people in Fukushima. You can read more and see some making of photos over on My Modern Met.

Nishida and Li were featured earlier this year on Colossal for their typographic Still Life Comes Alive installation.

This is a killer claymation test by animator Peter Sluszka. I can’t imagine how much time it must have taken to accomplish something like this. Really hope it’s part of something longer. (via stellar)

OK toy car collectors, kids, everyone else, maintain yourself. The Toy Atlas Rainbow is a wonderful installation of 2,500 old toy cars by UK artist David T. Waller. The piece won the People’s Award at the Arts Depot Open last year. As absurdy beautiful as this thing is, don’t you just want to take a running slide into it and start playing with all those freaking cars? (via the always wonderful fasels suppe)

The inside of Mattias Adolfsson’s sketchbook looks much better than the inside of mine. These are just a few of some fantastic spreads found in his series Flying Junk and Rococo Borg. Be sure to click the images for maximum HD sketch goodness. (via behance)
