New York artist Paul Villinski is seemingly obsessed with flight. It has driven him to personally man the cockpits of paragliders and sailplanes and it permeates his artwork which ranges from elegant installations of butterflies made from recycled beer cans and wheelchairs converted to airplanes. The above images are from a 2010 installation called Diaspora in which he crafted dozens of vinyl LP records into a flock of dispersing birds. (via domestica)

The Junkyard Jumbotron is a system that allows laptops or phones in close proximity to be ganged together to form a large display. The idea is actually pretty simple: enter a unique URL on all the devices which displays a QR code on each device, then photograph the resulting array of screens and email it to a special address and that’s all the system needs to slice and orient images on your new jumbo display. The whole projected was designed by Rick Borovoy at MIT and there’s a beta version for you to start tinkering with.

Enterprising textile/embroidery artist cauchy09 has begun stitching some of @MayorEmanuel‘s most epic tweets into lovely embroidered notes. Quick backstory: Columbia College journalism professor Daniel Sinker recently outed himself as the individual behind a foul-mouthed twitter account that satirized former chief of staff (and Chicago mayoral candidate) Rahm Emanuel in the run-up to the 2011 election. This clip from the Colbert Report should explain everything. These embroidered tweets could become a cottage industry.
