Welcome back, Friday folks!

There are just seven more days left in Autumn.

Here we go…

» Shinichi Maruyama: Nude

“I tried to capture the beauty of both the human body’s figure and its motion.
The figure in the image, which is formed into something similar to a sculpture, is created by combining 10,000 individual photographs of a dancer.”
Despite the title, it’s sfw.
Very beautiful work.

» Now and Then | BLDGWLF

“To ‘raise awareness of the social and economic challenges the city of Detroit,’ website Detroiturbex explores and photographs abandoned buildings and places in and around the city. One of its recent projects focuses on Lewis Cass Technical High School, which had its building devastated by a major fire in 2007 (the building was subsequently demolished).

By combining old photographs of the school with new views of the abandoned building, it offers us a look into two different times: one that shows a vibrant campus and one that shows empty ruins.”
Great work. Heartbreaking.

» Quakescape 3D Fabricator

“Quakescape is a 3D fabricator that works by taking earthquake data from the site GeoNet (www.geonet.org.nz) and transferring it into the medium of art by using paint and Arduino technology.”
Really cool idea. Also: beautiful.

» Circle The Cat

A frustratingly challenging game.

Bonus Link!

» January

“January is a generative music tool. You walk around and lick snowflakes with your tongue, and the tool uses a set of rules to make choices about what the next note (or notes) will be.”
Very soothing… 🙂
Seriously a great little music generating game.

Enjoy the rest of your fabulous Friday!
