Artist Takes Balloon Twisting To The Next Level With These Sculptures

I am sure most people will be familiar with balloon twisting. You know, the thing that the clown guy does at some children party? Yeah, that. Like, who would have thought balloon twisting could be an art? I, for one, never, until I saw Masayoshi Matsumoto’s work of art. Mind you, though, Matsumoto’s balloon twisting isn’t the typical sausage-looking swords and poodle dogs. They are pretty damn complex creatures from the animal kingdom. It is incredible as it is surreal that those longish balloons could be manipulated and twisted into animals with so much details in them.

Studio Developed A New Font Using Recognizable Company Logos

Here’s a little fun stuff to brighten your day/night. Well, fun, if you are not hostile towards consumerism and also, you have a thing for design. But mostly, consumerism, really. An experimental creative studio called Hello Velocity has created a set of fonts based on highly recognizable businesses’ logo which it named Brand New Roman font. The result is an array of alphabets (a-z) and numbers (0-9) that are refreshingly fun, though not necessary practical. Continue reading Studio Developed A New Font Using Recognizable Company Logos

Surfboards With Coastal Scenes Are How Surfboards Should Look

Surfboard belongs to the sea and therefore, it couldn’t be more fitting than one that has a design that depicts a bird’s eye view of the coastal scene like these surfboards created by Hawaii-based studio TRVLX. These surfboards are not actually functional surfboards. Though, I have no doubt the natural wood like Mango, Koa, and Eucalyptus would ensure it floats, but it probably does not have the dynamics of a surfboard performs.

These Instant Noodle Warrior Sculptures Deserved To Be A Cartoon

I am not sure if you will still love consuming Japanese instant noodle after seeing Taishi Arimura’s Instant Noodle Warrior Sculptures. What this young graphic designer from Tokyo did was, he weaved a person out of fake noodles and then sprucing up each figure with armor of sort using actual instant noodle Styrofoam packaging to result in strangely attractive ‘noodle warriors’. Final touch to each of these ‘noodle warriors’ includes equipping each with a weapon of either single use fork or chopsticks (there’s one with what appeared to be an egg-based food as its shield).

Man Injured After Falling Into Anish Kapoor’s Art Installation

Will you stepped on stray newspaper you come across on the street? I wouldn’t. I am cautious because, I am wary of what’s underneath, like who knows if there is a hole lurking under? Well, that’s just me. Not everyone is as paranoid as me and that “not everyone” includes an unidentified 60-year-old museum visitor to British artist Anish Kapoor’s exhibition at Serralves Museum in Porto, Portugal, who clearly has no qualm about stepping into the unknown. At least, it will be “into” when what he was stepping turned out to be a hole and not solid ground. Continue reading Man Injured After Falling Into Anish Kapoor’s Art Installation

Persian Rug Animal Sculptures: Where Animals Emerged From Persian Rugs

Have you ever ‘seen’ images in pattern, textured walls and floors? I am sure some of us have sometimes and so does British sculptor Debbie Lawson. Lawson not only see images, but she turn what she thought she may seen into sculptures that are incredibly surreal and mind-blowing. This particular series is related to animals and old style Persian rugs (she has experimented with other materials too). OK. Maybe they are mostly bears and old-fashioned rugs, really.

This Electroacoustic Installation Looks Straight Out Of 60s’ Sci-Fi Flicks

To be honest, I am clueless about what this electroacoustic installation called Apparatum by PanGenerator is about. All I know are one) it looks awesome and straight out of 60s’ sci-fi flicks and two) it makes analog sounds that sounded as sci-fi-ish as its aesthetic. The Lost In Space vibe is strong here, don’t you think? The contraption is inspired by Polish Radio Experimental Studio, one of the world’s first studio to produce electroacoustic music, but with a slight twist.
