I never thought about making a papercraft art piece featuring Darth Vader myself, but other people certainly have. In this case, one artist posed Darth Vader like he’s Jesus Christ himself – a bit of a contradiction with Vader’s Dark Sided ways.
To be honest, I no longer use Facebook enough to see any bugs. I basically check in and check out, within 10 or 15 minutes or so each time and never leave an open tab. That being said, just like any website, Facebook has got some bugs.
Etsy seller Biscotto Cotto is currently offering a line of minimalist pixel art prints of video game systems. They’re done in 8-bit, which is kind of funny when you notice that the NES – perhaps the most famous console from that generation – isn’t included in the series.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I guess from that statement, we could say that art, in itself, is pretty much subjective. You could throw water bombs filled with paint on an empty canvas, and call the end product art.
Ever wondered what you might look like if you were trapped inside a computer program? While it’s not exactly what was envisioned in TRON or The Matrix, this iPad app can polygonize almost anything you throw at it, including pictures of yourself.
This has to be the coolest use of toy soldiers that I’ve ever seen. Have you got a few tins full of toy soldiers somewhere your garage? Check out what one artist decided to do with a bunch of those little plastic fighters.
I used to like putting together puzzles, but I have gotten out of the habit over the years. These awesome pixel puzzles might just rekindle my love for puzzles, since they aren’t just puzzles, you can actually use them to decorate the walls of your house.
Nope, that’s not a giant chunk of chocolate melting in the corner of the room. That is merely one of three pieces that French design duo Rémy Clémente and Morgan Maccari of Bonsoir Paris have designed for their “Duramen Series.”
If you loved temporary tattoos as a kid, then you’ll probably love Swissmiss’ new project Tattly, where they sell quite a few different sets that you can share with your friends. I especially like this tattoo, since its a watch that basically says that you’re very late, because who isn’t this time of year?
Strangely enough, we’ve already featured two geeky examples of fossilized artwork. The first one featured robots, while the other one had rocky renditions of popular gadgets. Here’s a third from art and design studio Bughouse, featuring retro devices rendered in cement.
What do you get when you combine fishing line with buttons? Sculptures! That’s what Miami-based artist Augusto Esquivel is doing. He basically arranges different lengths of fishing line in a grid, then carefully strings-in sewing buttons in a variety of different colors to create shapes.
I don’t know about you, but I find these little guys to be absolutely adorable. These are fuzzy Mario Kart characters made from warp pipe-cleaners. And they have real wheels which means that you can race them too!
If you ever wondered what the characters from Futurama might look like if they were real, three-dimensional people, we now have a better idea, thanks to the artistry of Brooklyn, New York sculptor Ray Lin (aka “artanis-one”).
Philips is always working on new lighting technologies, and is a big proponent of OLED as one of the many new ways we might be lighting our homes and offices in the future. The artists of rAndom International have been showing off a really cool interactive display using Philips’ Lumiblade OLED lighting tech at the Design Miami ’11 art show this week.
Normally you can find a V12 in the back of a Lamborghini or an Aston Martin, but you’ve never seen one this small. This is the world’s smallest V12 engine and it actually works just like the full-size versions.
