You’ve likely seen his art or imitations of it; Chuck Anderson, aka NoPattern, is only 23 yet has already worked for clients that include Burton, Reebok, Microsoft and Absolut.
We’ve been having a bit too much fun with light painting lately, but we can’t help it: this trippy stop-motion 4th of July video by Jon Thomas is perfectly set to MGMT’s “Kids”.
Whether you’re a fan of the Man or not, Matador Nights has a gallery of the 13 coolest structures ever built at the Burning Man. Big Rig Jig (2007), above, is our favorite.
Created by German graphic designer Heiko Klug for Desktopography, Tiny World is a brilliantly executed wallpaper, even with all the balloons. You can also purchase a print here.
Not that Japan doesn’t have enough monsters, but the Water Dragon hologram above was filmed in Tokyo Bay. It’s actually part of a Sony ad campaign for The Water Horse movie.
We’re totally digging these fantastic lightpainting photos by artist Andy Hill, who makes and sells retro sci-fi Saucerbots from LED lights, leftover CDs, DVDs and hard drive platters.
Art director and 3D animator Emmett Feldman’s Interstellar Sugar is fantastic in monochrome; the visual style seems perfect for a remake of the classic shooter Asteroids.
Citylight is a trippy, sci-fi meets aurora borealis meets urban graffiti wallpaper by Polish graphic designer Kamil Kotarba. Click here to download the wallpaper (it’s a RAR file).
These sweet limited edition Change The Thought posters by Chris Cox have a 70s/retro style; they’re printed on thick 100 lb. A3 paper and are signed and numbered by the artist.
On display at the BMW Welt conference hall in Munich, this undulating kinetic sculpture is composed of 714 steel balls suspended on strings; it gets wild about 50 seconds in.
Anyone with a camera that can adjust shutter speeds has goofed around with lighting effects at one time or another; Lightmark elevates this to the level of high art.
Symmetry Explorer is a Flickr mashup that takes images (based on any search term) and arbitrarily reflects them on the fly. Above is our super bendy MacBook Air.
Situated in Terminal 5 of London’s Heathrow Airport, Cloud is a kinetic sculpture with 4,638 flip dots. They’re so mesmerizing that folks are liable to miss their flights.
Juxtaposition has never been quite as fun or geeky as these photos of various Star Trek and Star Wars fans. They’re photographed by Steve Schofield; PS: there’s a Wookie in the kitchen.
It’s over a year old but we’re still digging this motion graphics reel by The Ronin. It’s a motion graphics and design studio based in England, founded in May 2000 by Rob Chiu.
Dizel&Sate mixes graphic urban and photorealistic art to stunning effect; they sell everything from limited edition posters and t-shirts to jaw-dropping wallprints (sold by the square meter).
Using nothing more than cardboard and glue, Chris Gilmour creates life-size replicas of familiar objects. We’re amazed at the complexity of some of his pieces, including the trike (above).
It looks like a primitive Borg Cube, but we’re sure the Citizen Cube won’t be doing any assimilating: it’s the work of artist Brenda Guyton, who creates sculptures from found computer parts.
These jaw-dropping photos are of Chilean volcano Chaiten as it erupted in May of this year, surrounded by a swarm of lightning bolts. It continues to be active as of July. Thanks, Ryan!
Available at Vladstudio.com, Planet Earth Inversed is one of those wallpapers that has you poring over the creative details. The neutral color scheme is easy on the eyes, too.
Andrew Mager’s broken iPhone 3G photos can be painful to see, but there is an innate beauty to the shattered screens and crumpled cases. May you rest in pieces.
Scott Wade takes one-of-a-kind art to extremes with his dirty car art, which he brushes onto dusty car windows. To get the dirt to stick, he rubs almond oil onto the windows. His latest gallery is here.
Artist Bekijk Michael Karcz’s creepy manipulated photos are some of the best we’ve seen. His mastery of composition and use of atmosphere borders on supernatural.
Springfield Punx is a pet project of artist Dean Fraser; he does an amazing job creating Simpsons styled versions of popular superheroes and celebs. Our fave: The Dark Knight‘s Joker.
We have dreams (nightmares?) like Eboy’s Tokyo Pixel Poster, which makes this a must-buy. Sure, the giant robots are cool, but I bet you didn’t see the naked chicks on rockets.
Just in case you haven’t had a chance to catch the 2008 Olympics opening ceremonies in Beijing: Boston.com has a fantastic collection of photographs here.
