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.

Wind is a new 15-photo series from Cincinnati-based photographer Jonathan Robert Willis. Via his web site, “The idea was to use a hi-powered wind source to misshape and contort the face, as we captured various moments on camera, leaving what is usually completely in our control to chance. [...] The sessions were brief (15 minutes each) since the experience was relatively uncomfortable.” Probably an understatement, but what hilarious results. These will be all over the internet in the next few days I’m sure. (via behance)
