Spectacles of Environments by Phoebe Washburn

October 25, 2010

Enormous and intricate installations by New York artist Phoebe Washburn

[…] Washburn has moved on to newsprint and scrap wood, but what her massive, room-size architectural sculptures all share is that they’re built from the scavenged bits of the urban world in which she lives. She prizes the castoff and mass-produced—the pencils, crates and day-old newspapers that none of us much cares about—and then sorts, layers and transforms them into what she calls “spectacles of environments.”

Many more great photos on flickr.

Writing Without Words by Stefanie Posavec

October 25, 2010

Christopher Jobson

This image by Stefanie Posavec represents all of the sentences in On the Road by Jack Kerouac. Each line is organized according to the number of words per sentence, and the sentences are color-coded according to theme. This is only one of many killer infographics in Posavec’s Writing Without Words series in which she attempts to visually organize the language of books. Prints available.

An Invisible Bike Helmet by Hövding

October 25, 2010

Christopher Jobson

The inflatable Hövding bicycle helmet designed by Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin isn’t on the market just yet, but the test footage above of repeated 20km collisions between bike and car suggests some serious money has been invested into this incredible device. The helmet works like an airbag that’s worn somewhat discretely around the neck and inflates just before impact. Awesome. (via core77)
