I was unexpectedly delighted by this documentary short on jeweler, artist, and metalsmith Gary Schott who creates these small kinetic sculptures that produce tiny, intimate gestures. The attention to detail in each piece is astounding, from the early detailed sketches and balsa wood models, to the selection of materials, and even the color of fabric—all to create a tiny device, the sole purpose of which is to gently evoke a smile, to express, in the words of the artist, an action of love. The wonderfully produced video was shot and edited by husband and wife filmmakers Mark and Angela Walley of Walley Films out of San Antonio, Texas. (via junk culture)

How fun is this new stop motion short by Russian animator Constantine Konovalov. Via Vimeo he says the concept was born from all the people “who were able to turn this world, to change something, build something, create something and do something that leaves a mark on our planet.” So, in essence, maybe this is how Steve Jobs saw the world, iPhone included.

Artist Stephen Fitz-Gerald uses scavenged scrap metal to create these wonderful figurative sculptures. Starting with molds taken from live models he welds together industrial steel punch parts, fencing swords, and laser-cut steel scrap into these beautiful pieces that can weigh up to 100 pounds. See much more of his work here. Thanks Stephen for sharing your work with Colossal!

Composite Photograph Made from 500 Self-Portraits

Ever since photographer Noah Kalina began his Everyday portrait project 11 years ago (I had no idea he was still actively photographing himself, talk about commitment) there have been hundreds of inspired photogs snapping daily self-portraits. Flickr user clickflashwhir is one of these people, taking hundreds of portraits over the past several years. Tiemen Rapati downloaded 500 of her photos and created this beautiful composite image by finding an average RGB value for each pixel and dividing it by the total number of portraits. I have no idea how this is done, but I bet it involves computers. It’s amazing how surgically accurate she must sit, I assume using her eyes to align each shot. Really stunning. Just a note, though it says Tiemen used 400 photos on Flickr, he averaged in another 100 for this post. (via feltron)
