A new video from Denmark-based Lasse Andersen and Rune Brink of Dark Matters uses lights, string, and other tricks to simulate computer special effects. I absolutely love this.
New work from artist Annie Vought who delicately cuts away the white space from handwritten letters and scribbles. It seems her work has increased dramatically in its scale and complexity since I posted about her last year. See her work at Unspeakable Projects in San Francisco as part of her joint show “You Are A Bitch” with Hannah Ireland through April 21.
A new commercial for NTT Docomo’s Touch Wood SH-08C wooden-encased phone, created by Morihiro Harano of Drill Inc. The video follows a small wooden ball that traverses a sloped xylophone “track”, relying only on the force of gravity to gradually play Bach’s Cantata 147. If only more advertising was this brilliant. (via spoon and tamago)
Sooooooo that’s what that looks like. The Visible Human Project was an effort to create a detailed data set of cross-sectional photographs of the human body. The cadaver used for the project was from convicted murder Joseph Paul Jernigan who donated his body for scientific research prior to his execution without exact knowledge of his body’s fate. Recently, artists Croix Gagnon and Frank Schott took images from the video above and reconstructed them in three-dimensional form as part of the 12:31 Project. The ghostly prints from that series are available here, and all proceeds benefit Amnesty International.
