Curious Times

Conduit Productions show that although he seems entirely capable of killing the cat, curiosity most likely won’t in this stylish spot for the University of Cape Town’s Graduate School of Business.

Painting Without Brushes

Painting Without Brushes

Artist Amy Shackleton is a painter, but she doesn’t own a single brush. Her paintings are created entirely with squeeze-bottles of paint and the creative use of gravity to direct the flow.

Lego Greenhouse

Lego Greenhouse

Industrial designer Sebastian Bergne built this awesome greenhouse entirely out of Lego bricks, recently on display at London’s Covent Gardens. Brown Lego bricks even act as mulch.

The SWYP (See What You Print) combines a desktop printer with a touchscreen tablet that’s exactly the size of the paper beneath, providing an intuitive UI and predictable printing results.

Music from a Dry Cleaner

Music from a Dry Cleaner

When we go to the cleaners, we’re too busy making sure they didn’t forget any of our shirts to notice anything else. But when Diego Stocco stops in, all he sees are a bunch of musical instruments.

Watermelon Carving

Watermelon Carving

Halloween is just around the corner, so you’re probably thinking about carving some pumpkins. But while Summer is still fresh in our minds, this watermelon seems much more refreshing.

Real-Time Face Replacement

Real-Time Face Replacement

It’s not as seamless as the exchange between Travolta and Cage in Face/Off, but Arturo Castro and Kyle McDonald’s real-time face substitution is still pretty crazy. Kyle’s freaky variant is here.

Loom (Animation)

Loom (Animation)

A great example of the high-quality work coming from the designers and storytellers at Polynoid, Loom delves deep into the intense relationship between the hunter and the hunted.

Recycled Cars

Recycled Cars

These full-scale replicas of the Mercedes-Benz 300SL, Porsche Spyder and an Auto Union grand-prix racer were made entirely from old car parts and scrap metal by Giganten Aus Stahl.

Macula: Luminous Flux

Macula: Luminous Flux

Macula is back with another cool projection mapping, a mind-blowing 10-minute work that covered the facade of Liverpool’s Liver building. It also probably is the tallest video you’ll see today.

Paper Portraits

Paper Portraits

Could paper be the new pointillism? We think there’s a good chance, especially after viewing this intricate series of three portraits made from tiny paper rolls by Anant Nanvare for Conquerer Paper.

Heliotropes

Heliotropes

An amazing blend of poetry, animation and live footage, Michael Langan’s Heliotropes is based on a poem of the same title by Brian Christian about “the fundamental unity of life.” More here.

Tape Generations

Tape Generations

Rolls of adhesive tape act as seeds, and the tape makes that familiar peeling sound as they grow. Dutch artist Johan Rijpma spent a total of 6 months to make this stop motion video.

Uncharted 3 Sand Art

Uncharted 3 Sand Art

An engrossing performance featuring scenes from the Uncharted 3 trailer by sand artist Natalya Netselya. Her medium is a perfect fit for the Arabian setting of Nathan Drake’s latest adventure.

Project 12:31

Project 12:31

The images in Project 12:31 are the result of night photography and long-exposure photographs of this animation of cross-sections cut from the cadaver of a convicted murderer. Eerie indeed.

Liam Brazier Illustrations

Liam Brazier Illustrations

These pieces from illustrator Liam Brazier look like vector magic from Adobe Illustrator but he actually draws each shape with Photoshop’s polygonal lasso tool before coloring it in.

Time-Lapse Inception

Time-Lapse Inception

Okay, it only goes two levels deep, but we still love the stop-motion-within-a-time-lapse that Joe Clarke shot of animator Barry Purves in which puppet and master operate on different time scales.

Stormtroopers Off Duty

Stormtroopers Off Duty

Kristina Alexanderson’s CClones 365 project is a daily showcase of pictures showing Jango Fett’s clones and their adorable minifig kids in goofy, playful or very touching moments. Brilliant work.

Jennifer Collier’s Paper Devices

Freddie Mercury Google Doodle

Freddie Mercury Google Doodle

Today would have been the 65th birthday of Queen frontman and vocal genius Freddie Mercury. Google pays tribute to his artistry and showmanship with this awesome animated Google Doodle tribute.

Skull Hobo Nickels

Skull Hobo Nickels

Over the years, these soft metal coins have been re-sculpted with creepy skulls. If the U.S. mint started producing these, they’d be the only currency we’d use. Dig around on eBay for some.

Slate Sculptures

Slate Sculptures

These unreal sculptures are the work of UK artist Stephen Kettle, who creates them using thousands of slivers of stone slate, cut and placed precisely to form figures, animals and more.

Poses
