New York and Tokyo go the way of Venice in Aqualta, a series of images that depicts the cities after sea levels rise; life goes on, albeit with blimps, ski lifts, catwalks, and gondolas.
Cash for Clunkers may have a new home with James Corbett; his beautifully detailed metallic sculptures are made entirely from leftover car parts–often, ironically, into tiny cars and bikes.
Best known for his over-the-top artwork and posters, Tyler Stout really outdoes himself this time with these Forum Youngblood snowboards; zoom in for ridiculously sweet details here.
The EyeWriter Project helps ALS-sufferer and LA graffiti artist Tony Quan to create again; it’s a low-cost ($50) eye-tracking apparatus that uses the PS Eye and open source software.
This Shadow Art video puts shadow puppets to shame; using a geometric algorithm, a single 3D sculpture made of LEGOs can cast completely different shadows based on how it’s rotated.
Proof that the Japanese have embraced capitalism more thoroughly (and happily) than anyone else: these vanity barcodes are made by d-barcode and are fully scannable.

Fritz Kahn’s classic 1927 illustration, Man as Industrial Palace, comes to life as a fully animated video; it’s actually a Mac Mini-powered interactive art installation by Henning M. Lederer.
Hollywood goes Halloween with Worth1000’s Celebrity Vampires; the red carpet turns a nice shade of crimson by poking fun (and holes) in celebs like Bruce Willis and Scarlett Johansson.
Kevin Van Aelst dispenses with charts and spreadsheets; he uses everyday objects to depict scientific principles, with everything from fingerprints as tape to DNA with Gummy Worms.
Ryan Dunlavey’s Comic Strip Mashups awesomely marry science fiction and weekend funnies; Dark Side and Fantastic Family Circus rock, but there’s no beating Spy vs Spy vs AvP.
Alan Jaras’ Light Art is spectacular enough on its own, but most impressive is these are made without any CG: they’re refraction patterns of light passing through transparent objects.
Filled with sci-fi size charts, gladiator comparisons, and tie-tying flow charts, Visual Aid’s posters are heaven for infographic lovers; they’re from the two books of the same name.
It may lack the permanence of traditional graffiti, but that may not be a bad thing: Video Graffiti is part art, part tech demo as it uses rollers with LEDs that are motion-tracked by a projector.
Kiel Johnson’s giant Cardboard Twin-Lens Reflex Camera looks cool enough as he builds it in the time-lapse video above, but here’s what wowed us: it actually takes pictures.
Volkswagen guts and Spitfire innards make you giddy? Surface View offers Haynes Manual Graphics prints and wall covers; they’re based on the renowned DIY tomes of the same name.
Andy Awesome’s art is exactly that: technically consistent (it’s all about circles) and relevant to geeks (Star Wars, Simpsons), it’s also freely available as iPhone and desktop wallpapers.
The Japanese own the giant lizard scene now, but their love affair with monsters goes way back: these Folk Monster Anatomy posters explore their grisly (and somewhat tasty) innards.
