Welcome to your Post-US-Thanksgiving Friday Links!
Let’s get going…
A self-described “paper engineer”, Mr. Shlihan’s paper sculptures evoke a sense of motion I don’t think I’ve seen anywhere before. Really beautiful work. Extremely detailed.
“Beginning with an initial fold, a single action causes a transfer of energy to subsequent folds, which ultimately manifest in drawing and three dimensional forms. I use my engineering skills to create kinetic sculpture which have led to collaborations with scientists at University of Michigan. We work on the nanoscale, translating paper structures to micro folds. Our investigations extend to visualizing cellular division and solar cell development. Researchers see paper engineering as a metaphor for scientific principles; I see their inquiry as a basis for artistic inspiration. In my studio I am a collaborator, explorer and inventor.”
This is a story about Roman Fedortsov, who is a deep-sea-trawling fisherman. This story has made international news in the past week. The pictures he takes are really incredible but it’s an controversial line he’s walking. The deep trawling method is considered damaging to the ocean ecosystem.
We’re in the season. Here it is. These are quite pricey, but also striking.
A massively multiplayer, free-form version of Pac-Man.
I mostly got eaten by other players. Hmph.
And that’s our show!
Thanks for being a Friday Links Subscriber. I’m thankful for you.
See you next week.
