Artist David Poppie makes sculptural artworks using objects such as colored pencils, cassette tapes, matchbooks and tea bags. These pieces above are some of my favorites but there’s much more in his gallery.

Update: It turns out the cassette tape sculptures above were actually a collaboration between David Poppie and artist Roger Sayre. We regret the omission!

Films on Fridges: London’s Premiere Cinema Constructed from Abandoned Refrigerators

Former site of Hackney Fridge Mountain

Film on Fridges is an ongoing film festival in East London built primarily out of discarded refrigerators. The space was the former site of an enormous refrigerator dumping ground where the old appliances were stacked over 20 feet deep and could literally be seen from space (though arguably what can’t you see from space these days?).

Films on Fridges resurrects this industrial icon in the form of a playful and interactive outdoor pop-up cinema. In celebration of the upcoming Olympics, the cinema will screen films athletic in nature.

Films include Rocky, Chariots of Fire, and Cool Runnings, and by the looks of it many of the screenings are already sold out, so if you’re in London and want to catch a nice outdoor movie in a cinema constructed from refrigerators, this is your chance. Runs through August 13th. Read more over on the Guardian.

UK artist Kaylee Hibbert creates three dimensional and illusional textiles using carefully stitched thread. She cites the work of Gabriel Dawe (previously here and here) as an inspiration, and is exploring the idea of turning many of her designs into a collection of hand-stitched wallpapers. (via lustik)

The Time Print Machine by designer Paul Ferragut uses standard felt-tip pens mounted to a device controlled by custom hardware using openFrameworks to draw pointilist representations of images. The marker stays in contact with the paper for a time period relative to the brightness of the pixel it’s attempting to draw, thus the “bleed” of the marker creates larger spots for darker pixels and smaller ones for lighter. Ferragut further modified the machine to create successive 4-pass CMYK drawings as well. This certainly isn’t the quickest method of drawing something with a robot, but it’s pretty darn neat. See some more detailed photos of the drawings and the machine here, and also check out his gesture drawing device. Thanks Paul for sharing your work with Colossal!

Tree of Life Poster by Degree trees posters and prints animals

I just reached for my wallet so quickly I tore a hole in my pants. The folks over at Degree have just printed this fantastic offset lithograph print entitled Tree of Life. The rings of the tree are created with tiny animals.

This unique poster aims to highlight the responsibility we have in letting animal species thrive in their natural environment—we have a choice whether or not to preserve nature and let it grow. Specially designed to assert this crucial message, it forms the basis of social attitudes towards Mother Nature for the many people out there who want to make a difference in our world.

Printed on 9 Lives Recycled Eco Frontier 250gsm paper. Only $45. (via omg posters)

Leg bookmarks made from clay by Honey Case. I don’t think these will work with your Kindle, but for those of us who still read old-school, they should do the trick. (via svpply)
