Impact by Miranda Brandon

Impact by Miranda Brandon 1 Impact by Miranda Brandon 2 Impact by Miranda Brandon 3 Impact by Miranda Brandon 4 Impact by Miranda Brandon 5 Impact by Miranda Brandon 6

“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.

Virgin - A peek inside BLAH Airlines Flight 101 1 Virgin - A peek inside BLAH Airlines Flight 101 2 Virgin - A peek inside BLAH Airlines Flight 101 3

A lot of people hate flying. Virgin America shows people how much it sucks to fly a “blah” airline, by depicting the experience of a horrible flight from takeoff to landing. The result? An almost 6 hour film on board BLAH Airlines… which you can actually get to see, if you click on the link to the left at the end of the video!

Lilly McElroy Throws Herself At Men

The title of Lilly McElroy’s photo series “I Throw Myself at Men” could not be more literal. The photos, taken by her partner in the project, capture her mid-air as she lunges at various men. She throws herself into the air with abandon and trusts that these strangers will catch her. It’s an act of immense bravery captured on film. No, she’s not saving lives or fighting demons, but McElroy is risking rejection and public humiliation in the name of art.

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

The unexpected math behind Van Gogh's Starry Night - Natalya St. Clair 1 The unexpected math behind Van Gogh's Starry Night - Natalya St. Clair 2 The unexpected math behind Van Gogh's Starry Night - Natalya St. Clair 3 The unexpected math behind Van Gogh's Starry Night - Natalya St. Clair 4

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.

Lesson by Natalya St. Clair. Animation by Avi Ofer.
