Gorgeous Macro Photographs of Butterfly and Moth Wings by Linden Gledhill

March 26, 2014

Christopher Jobson

A biochemist by training, photographer Linden Gledhill is fascinated by the beauty of infinitesimally small aspects of nature and science, from capturing the flight of insects to exploring the beauty of magnetic ferrofluid. Among his most jaw-dropping images are macro photographs of butterfly wings that reveal complex patterns that look like perfectly organized flower petals. These tiny protrusions are actually scales, similar to what you would find on reptile, though extremely small and fragile. Gledhill’s photography recently inspired an episode of Smarter Every Day where Destin Sandlin learns how to shoot similar photos. (via awkwardsituationist.tumblr.com)…

Remarkable Hobo Nickels Carved from Clad Coins by Paolo Curcio

December 27, 2013

Christopher Jobson

About two years we featured a great selection of skull nickels, a numismatic curiosity where miniature bas relief sculptures are carved into coins, an artform that’s broadly referred to as hobo nickel art. While researching a follow-up article on Hobonickelart.com I stumbled onto the work of Paolo Curcio (aka “mrthe”) who appears to have taken the process of carving coins to an entirely new level. Using a variety of different coins the Barcelona-based artist creates etched homages to pop culture, illustrations of figures from literature, and most commonly: macabre portraits of skulls and death, probably the most prevalent theme in…

This year he’s been to Portugal, Austria, Canada and the U.K. (just to name a few), and then to the U.S. “I wanted to draw attention to how they and many other species become a victim…

Better Out Than In: Banksy to Descend on NYC for an Outdoor "Residency" in October

October 1, 2013

Christopher Jobson

Banksy’s website updated a few minutes ago to announce Better Out Than In, “an artists residency on the streets of New York.” The ongoing event is accompanied by a phone number (800) 656-4271 that you can call with a specific code correlating to each artwork. The current recording for #1, shown above, involves a satirical message that completely skewers typical audio tours found in museums and galleries and pokes fun of the artist as well, referring to him repeatedly as “Ban Sky”. Do you think he’ll make a new piece every day? That seems pretty grueling. Stay tuned to www.banksyny.com

Timelapse Video of Hundreds of Snails Tagged with LEDs at Night

August 23, 2013

Christopher Jobson

…created an experiment to track the movement of snails through a garden at night. The team tagged hundreds of live snails with an array of LEDs and UV paint and then tracked their speed and patterns of movement at night. Apparently lungworm infections are potentially fatal in dogs and nobody is exactly sure how the organisms make the leap from snails to dogs in the first place, though the assumption is accidental ingestion. You can watch the awesome timelapse of glow-in-the-dark snails starting around 2:15 in the video above, or watch the entire clip here. Be Lungworm Aware! (via Hungeree.com)…

You Are Beautiful: An Art Movement Turns 10

February 8, 2013

Christopher Jobson

Ten years ago Chicago artist and designer Matthew Hoffman decided to print a batch of 100 stickers that read simply “You Are Beautiful” which he gave to friends and colleagues who found the phrase to be inspiring, hopeful, and infectious. Requests for the stickers began to trickle in so Hoffman started selling them in small batches online at You-Are-Beautiful.com. Demand quickly began to swell, so much so that he’s now printed over 500,000 of them. Soon the stickers were accompanied by numerous public art installations in Chicago and eventually the message began appearing around the world on fences, street overpasses,…
