Backed By Geometric Principles, This Shit Is Literally Golden

Look. We are not here to judge, but I will be honest, saints we are not and therefore, we can’t promised we won’t judge a person with a fetish for “decoration defecation.” Oh, you don’t know if you have such fetish? It’s ok. Just take a look at the 3D printed Archimedean Turd and if you kind of fancy it, then you have a fetish for decoration defecation. Don’t be ashamed, though and don’t make excuses like “because it looks like a perfectly laid pile of poop and it is an art.” Well, I got news for you. This ain’t art. It’s poop science, or more accurately, poop mathematics cos’ its geometry is, apparently, backed by geometric principles including the Archimedean spiral (r = a + bθ) and the Golden Ratio/Phi in triangles where a=1, b=√φ, and c = φ.

Fantastic Beasts Chinese Posters Made Fantastic Beasts Even More Mythical

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a fantasy movie that’s, well, mystical. Ancient art, particularly, Asian ancient art, is kind of mystical too. So, marrying the two together seems like a logical thing to do and that, folks, was what Chinese artist Zhang Chun did. His series of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Chinese movie posters were designed in classic painting technique known as gongbi art style which dated as far back as the 16th century (Yuan and Ming Dynasty). Like the Pokémon creatures reimagined in ancient Japanese Ukiyo-e we saw last month, Zhang’s iterations seem like, how do you say? Right at home? Yeah, something like that.

Heard Of Construction Site Disco? Well, There Was One And It Was An Art

Disco is mainly an indoor event, but occasionally, it does occur on beaches and sometimes, even at construction site too. Well, ok, the latter was not true. Though it is true that there was a “construction site disco,” but that was just the one time at Lyon, France last week (December 8-10, 2016) and it wasn’t a real disco per se. It was actually French artist Benedetto Bufalino’s latest work of art. The artist, who has the penchant of the quirky art like phone booth aquariums, stuck a large number of mirrored surface plates on the mixing barrel of a Lafarge cement truck which, effectively turn the cement truck into a big-ass disco ball.

These Life-like Images Show You What Pokémon Will Look Like In Real Life

Most things are cute in cartoons. Even hideous creatures in cartoon could look really, really adorable (read: Pokémon). Ok, maybe it was intended to be cute. I don’t know, but what if, just what if, these adorable creatures exist in real-life? Will they be as cute, or otherwise? Well, there’s only one way to find out: genetic splicing. Nah. We are just kidding. How’s that even possible, right? Even if we can (not me, those mad scientists), we do not wish mess with nature and in the process, creating monsters which we can’t contain. As it is, the world already has enough monsters (read: humanity). Anywho, put science aside, concept artist Joshua Dunlop has taken upon himself to reimagine Pokémon to look like real world animals, well, actually, more like creatures.

Some Folks Built A 7-Meter Tall Rice Straw Godzilla And It Looks Amazing!

Well, it is time of the year again in Japan. A time where harvested rice’s by-product, rice straws, are put to good use as material for mind-blowing sculptures and one of them was this 23 feet (7 m) tall, 32 feet (10 m) long Godzilla which reportedly took a group of over 150 volunteers four months to built. Like the rice straw sculptures we saw last year, wooden frames were constructed and rice straws added to form this amazingly realistic Gojira and as if the realism wasn’t enough, LEDs were thrown in for good measures to make the eyes, mouth and part of the tail, chest and neck area glows – just like the monster did in the recent Shin Godzilla flick.

Watch 500 Intel Drones Light Up The Night Sky, Setting A New World Record

Last year, Intel made history by putting 100 light drones into the night sky, dancing to a live orchestra and in the process, set a world record for most UAVs airborne simultaneously. Rather than holding on to the record and waiting for someone else to break it, the chip maker sets out to erase its own record by outdoing itself again but this time, with 500 drones specifically designed for light shows which, together with new algorithms and optimized software, to result in another mind-blowing, breathtaking choreographed light show. Naturally, this amazing feat wiped out the company’s own record, setting a new world record. Continue reading Watch 500 Intel Drones Light Up The Night Sky, Setting A New World Record

“Real-Life” Interpretations Of 6 Y.O. Doodles Seriously Creeps Us Out

Kids drawings are cute and often puts a smile on grown ups’ face but what if the drawings of a six-year-old are turned into “real-life” versions using the magic of Photoshop? Well, that, my friends, was exactly what Dom’s father did. Dom’s dad decided to take his son’s drawings and recreate them into subjects that fit into the real world and the results…. well, lets just say that some of them resulted in me having nightmares after that. Don’t get me wrong. Dom doodles were great for kids of his age, however, the adorable scale just went south, plunges straight into the core of the Earth and into a place called hell because some of these real-life interpretations are so insanely hideous to a point being blasphemous, well, at least for the animals, they are.

Artist Reimagined Pokémon In Ukiyo-e Art And They Look Absolutely Brilliant

We don’t care if the Pokémon fad is in a decline or completely over. Whether a fad or not, you can’t deny that these Pokémon arts interpreted through feudal Japanese art of Ukiyo-e are simply brilliant and fitting because Pokémon is essentially Japanese. Created by Chicago-based artist BG Judkins, the Ukiyo-e Style Pokémon which Judkins called Pokiyo-e series, started just this year (though not sure when exactly in 2016) as a daily ritual of sort and has since covered 203 Pokémon creatures, including pre-evolution and post-evolution forms, each faithfully cataloged on BD Judkins’ website by their Pokédex number “for easy reference,” said BD Judkins.

Doodle Artist Imagines Monsters Among Everyday NYC Subway Riders

Have you wonder what lurks in the subway and subway trains? I guess the answer to that question is subjective, depending on your beliefs, but what if, just what if, there are monsters invisible to our naked eyes amongst us? Hard to imagine? Well, it don’t take a lot to imagine because doodle artist, Ben Rubin AKA Subway Doodle, already have you covered. He has imagined monsters in stations and trains as fellow commuters, sometimes even hitching a ride in someone’s backpack, or observing us as we stare at our phones, read our books, or taking a shut eye, oblivious their “existence.” And oh, some of Ben’s creations AKA creatures are kind of into smartphone too: Continue reading Doodle Artist Imagines Monsters Among Everyday NYC Subway Riders

H.R. Giger Monograph – A Supersized Homage To The Late Visionary Artist

When you see a biomechanical creature art, be it sculpture or print, chances are, it is the work of art of H.R. Giger. Oh. You don’t know who’s H.R. Giger? H.R. Giger, born Hans Rudolf Giger, was a Swiss avant garde artist most notable for his work on Ridley Scott’s 1979 horror sci-fi flick, Alien which he was responsible for the now-infamous acid-drooling creature – a work that bagged the 1980 Oscar for Best Visual Effects. Outside of Alien, H.R. Giger’s works mostly involved fusing human and machine into images that evoke a haunting and dark psychedelia theme. A theme that also demonstrates the “collective fears and fantasies of his (H.R. Giger) age,” including the looming threat of nuclear calamity, pollution and wasted resources, “and of a future in which our bodies depend on machines for survival” – all of which, sadly, remain relevant to this day.
