Along with delicate flowers in porcelain, Berlin-based artist Angelika Arendt applies minuscule orbs, dots, and thin, curved lines to her meticulously textured sculptures. Amorphous in shape but distinct in the organic matter they evoke, her intricate works often mimic processes found in nature, including plant growth and cells as they swell and burst into new life. Some pieces appear mid-movement, like expanding molecules, and others drip or peel to reveal fields thick with foliage and other tactile elements. In addition to sculpture, Arendt also…Read More
Created by German designer Dieter Pilger along with Janno Ströcker and Frederik Scheve, this dizzying 3D-printed zoetrope was designed around the mathematics of the Fibonacci sequence. Unlike similar devices we've seen, Pilger says their design isn't photographed or viewed using a strobe light to create the animation effect, but instead appears to move when staring directly at it in regular light (or darkness). The team credits John Edmark as their inspiration due to his earlier work with Fibonacci zoetropes.Read More
These 3d-printed zoetrope sculptures were designed by John Edmark, and they only animate when filmed under a strobe light or with the help of a camera with an extremely short shutter speed. He shares about the project: These are 3-D printed sculptures designed to animate when spun under a strobe light. The placement of the appendages is determined by the same method nature uses in pinecones and sunflowers. The rotation speed is synchronized to the strobe so that one flash occurs every time the sculpture turns 137.5º—the golden angle. If you count the number of spirals on any of these…Read More
