LEGO Certified Professional Jumpei Mitsui created a 3D interpretation of the wave depicted in Hokusai’s iconic Ukiyo-e image The Great Wave off Kanagawa. The brick-built version shows off some really neat LEGO tricks, especially with the foamy wave peaks. The 50,000-piece model is on display at the Hankyu Brick Museum.

Jefferson’s Ocean Bourbon

Jefferson’s Ocean Bourbon

After maturing eight years in Kentucky, Jefferson’s Ocean bourbon is aged another 5-10 months at sea on an Ocearch shark-tagging ship, crossing the equator four times, and visiting ports on five continents. Sounds gimmicky, but the salt air, temperature shifts, and the rocking of the ship is your passport to complex flavors.

Ocean Wave Kinetic Sculpture

Ocean Wave Kinetic Sculpture

Artist Ross McSweeney created this beautiful work of moving sculpture, which uses a series of cams to create a wave-like action. A tiny boat rocks back and forth as a wooden ocean moves below, and fish dive in and out of the waves. We also love his caterpillar marble machine.

Photographer Chris Bryan’s short film is comprised entirely of awe-inspiring footage of ocean waves, captured in slow motion using a Phantom Flex 4K camera with Leica Summilux lenses, and custom underwater housings. The level of detail, contrast, and vibrancy of the colors is truly something to behold.

30 Day Time-lapse at Sea

Seaman JeffHK’s latest video is comprised of about 80,000 photos taken in the span of 30 days aboard the container ship where he works. Outside of going to space, sailing the oceans might be the best way to internalize how small we are in the grand scheme of things.

Stop-motion Ocean

An up-close look at a rig built for the stop-motion film Two Balloons. The animators used an intricate network of strings and push rods to move dozens of shiny plastic layers to create the undulating waves of an ocean. The trailer for the film looks amazing.
