Happy Autumn everybody (in the northern hemisphere. Of earth.)

And welcome to Friday! And today’s edition of Friday Links! And Friday!

Let’s begin…

Christy Lee Rogers: Muses

Christy Lee Rogers: Muses

Nashville-based artist Christy Lee Rogers creates breathtaking images reminiscent of epic baroque art by suspending her models in water and using creative lighting effects.

It’s stunning.

Making the rounds and worth every second.

There is no information on this site about how it does what it does, but it’s a video mashup service that allegedly uses some kind of A.I.

Sneaking into an Abandoned Soviet Circus in Moldova

Sneaking into an Abandoned Soviet Circus in Moldova

“Moldova’s Chisinau Circus was built in 1981, back when the nation was known as the ‘Moldavian Soviet Socialist Republic’ under the USSR.”

There are some quite lovely artistic details in this piece. Really beautiful.

“Place shapes on the playing field to make it possible for you to move your character from one side to the other.”

Note: gravity is involved. It can mess things up.

I like this game but it needs a better title.

Welcome to mid-September Friday!

September. Already nearly done. So fast.

But! It’s Friday! And look: I found these links!

Mario Unger restores and carefully colourizes old photographs. His work is really incredible. A photo from 1900 can look like it was taken this week.

So good.

Prop Store Auction Sept. 20th

Prop Store Auction Sept. 20th

A ton of pretty iconic props are going on the auction block next week. I love perusing some of these. Costumes and models from Aliens! Indiana Jones’s hat! The teddy bear from A.I.! Some cool stuff here (if you can afford it, of course.)

Airport Walking

Airport Walking

“At some point in college, I found myself at the Tweed New Haven airport at an odd hour, and decided to try my hand at walking downtown rather than taking a cab. I found that it was surprisingly pleasant, and the distance was not outlandish.”

A well-documented listing of walking routes to several US airports.

I live in Toronto. This takes 5 hours. And people have done it! (e.g.: this)

Tetris With Physics

Tetris With Physics

Tetris, but with gravity, friction, and collisions.

I find it impossible, and also hilarious.

You can buy prints at his website.

Perfect for any of your OCD friends. 🙂

And that’s that.

I hope your weekend is amazing, and dry, and safe, and warm, and lovely.

First: this site has a great UI. Very sleek. I like it.

Second: this Polygon Playground installation is beautiful, and intricate, and well executed.

Incremental Popping

Incremental Popping

Click where you know the balls will end up and hopefully pop many of them. Upgrade and repeat.

I found this very satisfying. (Note: this screenshot includes my actual, no joke score.) They should make this into a mobile app.
