Welcome to your Mid-October Friday Links, everybody.
This week’s focus appears to be 2/5ths fine art. (So… “fine-ish” art?)
A weird little installation that presents dancers that you can modify, clone and move, and over a background you can change.

“John A. Peralta is a self-taught artist whose unconventional style of sculpture incorporates iconic mechanical objects and high-tech materials to produce astonishingly beautiful and complex representations. His interpretation of what is known in engineering terms as the exploded diagram, is truly original and demonstrates his extraordinary imagination, technical expertise, and inventiveness.”
This is some complicated work right here. Wow! So beautifully achieved as well. I like it a lot.

“This timeline describes Hubble’s history from the first proposal of a space telescope by Lyman Spitzer in 1946, through the completion of Hubble’s five servicing missions in the 1990s and 2000s, and to many of the significant observations and discoveries Hubble has made during its years in orbit.”
The user interface is a little weird but it’s a great, great resource for fans of space photography.

A challenging, potentially frustrating arcade shooter presented in isometric 3d.
Beautifully designed. You will certainly beat my high score of 18.
“Kazu is a self-taught pioneer in the craft of using contemporary materials to create the illusion of life. Having discovered the art of special effects makeup for himself while perusing American magazines as a teenager, he developed skills through mimicry, trial and error.”
These things are huge! They must be very impressive up close, for sure.
