Wanderers – a short film by Erik Wernquist

Wanderers - a short film by Erik Wernquist 0 Wanderers - a short film by Erik Wernquist 1 Wanderers - a short film by Erik Wernquist 2 Wanderers - a short film by Erik Wernquist 4

Wanderers – by Erik Wernquist - is a vision of humanity’s expansion into the Solar System, based on scientific ideas and concepts of what our future in space might look like, if it ever happens. The locations depicted in the film are digital recreations of actual places in the Solar System, built from real photos and map data where available.

Without any apparent story, other than what you may fill in by yourself, the idea of the film is primarily to show a glimpse of the fantastic and beautiful nature that surrounds us on our neighboring worlds – and above all, how it might appear to us if we were there.

Impact by Miranda Brandon

“Impact” is this cool photo series by photographer Miranda Brandon.

” While volunteering for the Audubon’s BirdSafe program I collected many birds that met untimely deaths due to collisions with built structures. Displayed are some of the birds I found, fully intact with everything that they were, aside from a conscience and a pulse. The birds are photographed in ways representative of the moment of impact or the aftermath of impact”, Miranda Brandon says.

The unexpected math behind Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” by Natalya St. Clair

Physicist Werner Heisenberg said, “When I meet God, I am going to ask him two questions: why relativity? And why turbulence? I really believe he will have an answer for the first.” As difficult as turbulence is to understand mathematically, we can use art to depict the way it looks. Natalya St. Clair illustrates how Van Gogh captured this deep mystery of movement, fluid and light in his work.

I love when you build stuff and locate stuff out of traditional dimension.

This is a 60-foot life-size indoor maze by the Danish BIG Bjarke Ingels Group placed at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C.

Riverbed by Olafur Eliasson

I’m a big fan of the Danish/Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson. He’s truly awesome at creating installations.

Like this one, at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art North of Copenhagen, Denmark called Riverbed. Here he has created a whole landscape of rocks and rivers – inside!

I want to go!

The First Law of Kipple – Chromatically Arranged Junk by Dan Tobin Smith

Photographer Dan Tobin Smith set up a website to ask the public to donate kipple: junk that was lying around their house – and give it a purpose as part of his installation for the London Design Festival 2014.

Dan Tobin Smith now had enough junk to create a sprawling installation that filled an entire floor and mezzanine, “carpeting 200-square-metres with a dense, precise, chromatically-themed arrangement of thousands of objects.” The objects are so carefully placed that gradients seem to blend together seamlessly.

The fictional word Kipple was coined by science fiction writer Philip K Dick. Kipple appears in his 1968 novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep” (the film adaptation was Blade Runner) and is used to describe useless, pointless stuff that humans accumulate. It served as the inspiration for Smith’s installation “The First Law of Kipple,” which was part of London Design Festival this month.

Meet Alex – the “Stalker Photographer”.

“I was introduced to Alex about a year ago through a mutual friend. I had heard about a “stalker photographer” from a couple people and was pretty intrigued. After about a two month process of trying to get her to sit down with me she finally agreed to tell her story. I was pretty blown away. Seeing the world through her eyes has been a unique experience to say the least. Her photos are unreal. Can’t say I completely agree with her craft but its very beautiful in its own way. If you’d like to see more of her work, go here, director MP Cunningham says.
