Sprawling Cardboard Architecture by Nina Lindgren 

cardboard-1

Stockholm-based illustrator, printmaker, and artist Nina Lindgren was been working with cardboard to build a series of stacked geometric cityscapes that look like small architectural islands. The works are assembled like puzzles from carefully cut cardboard panels with internal lights for some of the houses. Her most recent piece, “Floating City” was recently on view at ArtRebels Gallery. You can see more over on her website. (via Hi-Fructose)

Color Coded Food and Flowers Photographed by Emily Blincoe 

blincoe-5

Photographer Emily Blincoe (previously) continues to make us smile with her arrays of food and plants perfectly organized by color. Blincoe collects every color permutation of tomatoes, oranges, eggs, and even candy and then sorts them into groups and gradients for each image. Her wildly popular photos have attracted a huge following on Instagram and Tumblr, and many are available as prints.

Art and Craft: A Documentary about Mark Landis, One of the Most Prolific Art Forgers in U.S. History 

Art and Craft is a new feature documentary about art forger Mark Landis (previously) who is arguably one of the most prolific art forgers in U.S. history, having tricked over 60 museums in 20 states into believing his masterfully created replicas are authentic artworks. The catch: so far, it appears Landis, who has been diagnosed as schizophrenic, has yet to commit a crime. While he’s caused headaches, confusion, and multi-year investigations, he has never sought to benefit or profit from his forgeries in any way. Instead, he enjoys the performative act of pretending to be a philanthropist who makes donations of obscure artwork to art institutions, many of which unknowingly exhibited the fakes, allowing Landis the secret thrill of seeing his work on display.

Art and Craft opens next month in a select number of theaters. (via Coudal)

Singapore Changi Airport Timelapse Turns Planes into Abstract Streaks of Light 

timelapse

Photographer and filmmaker Milton Tan was given unprecedented access to Singapore Changi Airport in order to film his latest timelapse of planes taking off and landing at night. In an unusual reversal, airport officials saw one of Tan’s earlier films, and immediately invited him to shoot at Changi from several restricted areas. He was at times positioned so close that you can occasionally see his tripod shake from the thrust of the jet engines.

My favorite aspect is that even when the airport appears to be busiest (Changi Airport has a takeoff or landing every minute), the airplanes only appear as abstract orbs and streaks of light moving through the sky. You can see a bit more about how it was made over on PetaPixel, and on Tan’s blog.

Artist Creates Digital Life-Forms that Respond to Archival Birdsongs 

audio

Australian artist Andy Thomas creates what he describes as “audio life forms,” specifically 3D animations that respond to audio input. For these latest pieces he used archival bird recordings from the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision (in addition to one of his own recordings) to create these new digital sound sculptures that animate in different ways in reaction to the songs of each bird. Thomas uses more software tools than we could reasonably share here, but you can learn a bit more over on his website.
