Although these appear to have been around for a bit, they’re certainly new to me. These pencil set illustrations were created by Melbourne-based artist Ghostpatrol and you can see the entire series of over 40 illustrations here. (via upon a fold)

Artist and architect Peter Jellitsch created this series of pen and ink drawings entitled STB based on algorithms that predict how air will move through highrise buildings.

STB means Streambody, this series is based on a motion algorithm that is used in architectural practice to simulate wind directions and the force of air that arrives at highrise buildings. I have experimented with this program, and the outcome was solid bubbles which I have then redrawn with the directions that they had. The degree denotation that my title has (for example: STB/S02/90°) is explaining the turn of the wind-force hitting the object.

New-York based artist Christian Marclay is a visual artist and composer who explores the intersection of sound recording and photography.

As a performer and sound artist Christian Marclay has been experimenting, composing and performing with phonograph records and turntables since 1979 to create his unique “theater of found sound.” A dadaist DJ and filmmaker, his installations and video/film collages display provocative musical and visual landscapes. He was born in California, raised in Switzerland and now works between New York and London.

These striking blue cyanotypes are made by resting cassette tapes on photosensitive paper, like a photogram, and making multiple exposures with a light source. (via ex-chamber)

ZEK is a “a collective of eight humans with strange skills, producing random and conceptual visual interventions” out of Ljubljana, Slovenia. One of their members, Miha Arnak, shot over his newly launched portfolio which included this interior design work that ZEK did for 3fs. I really enjoy the correlation of computer keys and rooms, but the Pong whiteboard is definitely my favorite. See many more shots of the interior here. (thnx, miha!)
