The Periodic Table meme gets elementary with Bill Keagy’s Periodic Table of Periodic Tables; it not only lists hundreds of tables but includes helpful links to their creators.

Zimoun’s installations of DC motors, plastic bags, and styrofoam balls seem more cacophony than music, but his Sound Sculptures do have a meditative, if machine-like quality.

Four-legged typographers everywhere are howling over Grafisches Buro’s Fonts by Dog, which attempts to match classic typefaces with panting, drooling, and barking faces.

ArcAttack: Dorkbot SXSWi

Subversive Street Signs

Subversive Street Signs

Vandalism is bad, kids, but we can’t help but chuckle at TrustoCorp’s Subversive Street Signs; none of them endanger the public welfare while maximizing (and befuddling) public mindshare.
