Welcome back!

April is alllll out of Fridays now. That went really fast.

Let’s begin!

Sayaka Ganz

Sayaka Ganz

“Using reclaimed metal and plastic objects as materials, Sayaka’s recent sculptures depict animals in motion with rich colors and energy. She describes her style as “3D impressionism”- creating an illusion of solid form using plastic objects as brush strokes that become visible upon observation from close proximity.”

Be-A-Doll

Be-A-Doll

“12” Action Figures of You, Friends, or Family”

They hand sculpt the head, and as a result it’s a little pricey, but it’s a pretty cool idea!

Jomnar Machado – Future Cars

Jomnar Machado - Future Cars

This 3d illustrator from Rio de Janeiro creates some pretty incredible vehicle designs.

Just beautiful.

Pixel Cowboys

Pixel Cowboys

A nerve-wracking duel game. Really rudimentary and pretty challenging.

I like! Sent in by Darryl F.

Welcome to your late-April Friday.

Make a wish!

Here are some links for your special April Friday!

Rescued Film

Rescued Film

“The Rescued Film Project is an online archive gallery of images that were captured on film between the 1930’s and late 1990’s. Each image in our archive was recovered from found film from locations all over the world, and came to us in the form of undeveloped rolls of film.”

This is so interesting to me.

Discovered via Vice.com.

Making the Mac: 20 Vintage Apple Ads

Making the Mac: 20 Vintage Apple Ads

These make me feel oooooold. Some great ad work here.

Your phone is most likely 800 times more powerful than the entire list of products in these advertisements. The future: it’s here.

Sideserf Cake Studio

Sideserf Cake Studio

“Cake artist Natalie Sideserf has made a name for herself with some of the most intricate cake sculptures in the world.”

There is a Food Network show called “Texas Cake House” which focuses on this cake studio. I don’t have cable, so I had never heard of this.

Some utterly incredible work being done here. Amazing.

Toops

Toops

An addictive little arcade style game. Bounce the balls the right number of times off of objects to clear each item.

It’s tricky. And fun. And I’m addicted.

Bonus Link!

O Moldy Night

O Moldy Night

“The stars were brightly shining in Durham, North Carolina, when three women obsessed with Jell-O mounted a pop-up museum exhibition of molded foods.”

Caution: questionably jiggly… “food”

And there you go! Friday Links: delivered!

Have a lovely (warm?) weekend everybody.

See you next week.

Friday… the thirteenth! [orchestra!]

Friday has arrived. We can all exhale again.

Are you ready?

Here we go…

Frank Kunert – Photographs of Small Worlds

Frank Kunert - Photographs of Small Worlds

Mr. Kunert’s works are all over the place but so interesting. He has a series of miniature constructions including interiors that are pretty breathtaking.

Discovered via The Guardian.

A Most Curious Doctor’s Bag

A Most Curious Doctor's Bag

This is quite the find. Worth a read. Some really fascinating things here, and it’s well written.

Andreas Wannerstedt

Andreas Wannerstedt

A motion graphics designer who creates some pretty fascinating virtual looping animations.

His instagram is a delight as well.

Tiny Game

Tiny Game

A really, really basic platformer, but I found it entertaining (and quite pink.)

And those are the links I have this week.

It’s finally warming up where I live (sort of.) Spend part of your weekend outside.

Happy Friday!

Welcome back to Friday everybody!

All set for the weekend? Not yet!

Here we go.

Olivier Ratsi: Echolyse

Olivier Ratsi: Echolyse

“The Echolyse is an ensemble of works that deal with the perception of space. Using various devices, geometric structures are projected into different architectural sites with the aim of simulating immaterial three-dimensional spaces. Depending on the project, the resulting immaterial space can provide a virtual extension or a means of perturbing the existing space.”

“The projected structures come to life, decomposing and breaking into fragments over time.”

I particularly like the “Onion Skin” portion of this installation.

Some beautiful, beautiful works here. There are others on his site as well. Really exceptional work.

XKCD’s Right-Click

XKCD's Right-Click

A fascinating, quite in-depth… thing from XKCD.

Really well done. You’ll see

Climate Atlas of Canada

Climate Atlas of Canada

“The Climate Atlas of Canada combines climate science, mapping and storytelling to bring the global issue of climate change closer to home for Canadians. ”

Pretty sobering stuff. My region has already seen some of these effects in the past several years.

Speak & Spell (US, 1979 Version)

Speak & Spell (US, 1979 Version)

A free online emulator of this essential late-70s tech toy.

There you have it. All linked up.

Have a lovely weekend and see you next Frrrriiiiidayyyyeee
