Organic Steel Sculptures by Jang Yong Sun

October 10, 2011

Christopher Jobson

A number of striking sculptures from the first solo exhibition of Korean artist Jang Yong Sun entitled Particles of Dark Matter. Sun welds thousands of steel rings to form these amoeba-like structures that despite having the appearance of being precariously fragile must be extremely heavy. If you like these, you might also enjoy the work of Mike Castator. (via 준다메다 and art company gig)

Jing Zhang's Industrial Typography

October 9, 2011

Christopher Jobson

UK-based graphic designer and illustrator Jing Zhang is currently working on a beautiful series of isometric letters, rendering typographical forms as small industrial buildings, machines, factories, and landscapes. Via Behance she says the hardest part isn’t creating them, but finishing them, and that she’s running out of patience. Maybe we should encourage her a bit? I can’t wait to see the rest of these. See more of the series here.

Bubble Tank

The Bubble Tank by Richard Bell, Thomas McKeown and David Powell of Psalt Design is made to look as if the aquarium is moments from precariously dripping off the edge of a counter top. An alternative name could be the Anxiety Tank. (via juxtapoz)

Oona Rocks

Christopher Jobson

Enjoying this music video featuring a ukulele-playing, maraca-shaking girl who rocks out pretty hardcore with the assistance of some spectacularly fun editing. After 3:00 she goes into overdrive and it gets a little tragic. We can only hope she’ll be reassembled for future techno goodness.

Though I’m enjoying numerous photos by Nicholas Kennedy Sitton, these three twisty architectural shots really jumped out at me. (via fasels suppe)
