Moscow-based filmmaker Sasha Aleksandrov captured this dramatic exterior paint job of what appears to be a cold-war era industrial plant. Aleksandrov shot everything by hand over a period of two months without the use of a steadicam or camera track slider&em;meaning he would move the camera and tripod every few feet, capture some footage, repeat 50 times, then used software to stabilize the final shots. The film takes what must have been a grueling physical process involving countless workers and makes it look almost fun.

Thomas Pavitte who previously made the world’s most complex dot-to-dot drawing featuring Mona Lisa is further exploring the potential of the dot-connecting medium with series of puzzles entitled the Transformation Series. In his first release a two-phase drawing gradually reveals overlaid portraits of Michael Jackson’s changing face, from childhood to adulthood. He’s also designed a typographic/portrait treatment of President Obama. Pavitte now has an online store where you can buy limited edition prints of these transformation puzzles, as well as a high-resolution scan of the completed Mona Lisa puzzle.

Blitzstein Exhibit

Blitzstein Exhibit wood portraits painting abstract

I admit, I don’t know the story behind this one. It popped up on suplove (warning, music) a few hours ago and is entitled simply “Blitzstein Exhibit” and is dated 1994 on the bottom. Edvard Munch approved.

Update: Via email Nathan Bowers says: “The Blitzstein Exhibit is on Fairfax in L.A. Across the street from Canter’s Deli. The piece you linked is in the storefront window. I can’t tell if the place is a gallery or a studio because I’ve never seen anyone inside and none of the pieces have seemed to move since at least 1996. Mysterious!” It looks like this is a piece by Harry Blitzstein, and here he is jumping rope on a trampoline. Thanks Nathan!

Lego artist Mike Doyle creates these incredible Victorian mansions using no foreign materials, just pure tiny plastic bricks. The latest work on top, Victorian on Mud Heap, uses nearly 130,000 pieces and took 600 hours to complete. He says of the piece:

For me, this piece speaks to the inherent unpredictability of those things which we call our foundation. Like a little dollhouse, a seemingly secure home is plucked up and set on a new path. This charming home, lovingly embellished with ornamental fancy was no match for nature. The fancy embellishments serve as a reminder of our earlier focus on the material world, while the aftermath removes us from that focus. The piece offers no answers or necessarily any hope, but rather points to life’s fragility.

Happy Friday folks. This was a slower week than I would have liked, but for good reasons that I can’t really talk about for a few months. Suspense! Have a great weekend. (image via present and correct)
