Chain-link Radish

Chain-link Radish

Watch in amazement as a master Japanese chef takes a single daikon radish and works his precision knife skills to carve it into the links of a chain. We wouldn’t try and secure a bike lock with this thing, but we would eat it with a spicy tuna roll and some miso soup.

Cloud Collision

Cloud Collision

We won’t let the irritating audio take away from Mitchell F. Chan’s Something Something National Conversation (In 2 Characters or Less), which features one of the most satisfying elements we’ve seen in an art installation – two puffy white clouds colliding endlessly in mid-air.

Castle in The Sky Model

Castle in The Sky Model

2001: A Picasso Odyssey

LEGO My Lunch

LEGO My Lunch

It’s amazing all the cool things you can do with a simple X/Y motorized rig. Here, Rochester Institute of Technology’s Ted Kinsman shows how to create images using different sized droplets of colored liquid, like coffee, ink, or red wine, which then soak into the paper.

Genius Loci

Overlook

Overlook

A massive woodcut print that is as much an homage to nature’s beauty as it is a testament to hard work and dedication. Each 46″x 30″ print is made by hand using five 44″x 28″ wooden blocks – one for each color. It took Tugboat Printshop 3 years to carve the blocks.

Star Wars Shadow Art

G3DP 3D Glass Printer

G3DP 3D Glass Printer

While it doesn’t have the precision of other 3D printers, MIT Mediated Matter Group’s and Glass Lab’s molten glass printer is still amazing, producing optically-transparent glass shapes that would be very difficult to make by hand.

Embroidered Zoetropes

Embroidered Zoetropes

Artist Elliot Schultz created a variety of machine-embroidered discs, each of which is covered with numerous still frames which create animations when spun on a record player under a strobe light. It’s music for the eyes.
