DNA is essential to carbon-based life as we know it, but this is one of the few times that I’ve seen it used to create art. An artist created portrait sculptures from the analyses of genetic material that was collected in public places.
You can tell a lot about a person’s mood or disposition by observing his or her body language. For example, when a person’s pissed off or annoyed at you, then their arms are most likely crossed over their chest.
Tetris is an amazing game. I have played that game for hours upon hours on the funky green screen of my old Game Boy. There have been many different versions of the game that have released over the years, but there’s something just so right about the original.
For a moment there, I wasn’t sure if these sculptures were real, however, they are. These incredibly tiny sculptures were created by an artist using a microscope. They are incredibly detailed for art of this scale, and I imagine need to be quite careful when you’re around it, otherwise it could be crushed or simply blown away.
Nope, this isn’t a UFO, it’s a functional modern art installation that was installed in the atrium of the Level Shoe District, a 96,000 sq. ft. footwear emporium, situated within the Dubai Mall. Of course, something this extravagant would only be in a shoe store in Dubai.
We’re so used to seeing Darth Vader dressed in all black, but his iconic helmet really works well no matter what color it’s done in. Heck, even Hello Kitty Vader was pretty imposing. But I think that this version of Vader, built out of old bits of reclaimed electronics and other junk looks really awesome.
I always wondered how the Tusken Raiders passed the time in the desert. Between raiding travelers and shooting at pod racers, they probably had a little time on their hands. Perhaps they make sculptures like this nifty sand Astromech droid.
Everyone loves R2-D2, right? There’s really no reason not to – even if he is made out of cans. That’s right, R2-D2 has been built out a bunch of cans of what look to be sweet corn, Star-Kist tuna and tins of sardines on his chest.
If you’re like me, you’re pretty disappointed that Bioshock Infinite was delayed until February 2013. But I suppose I’d rather have a rock-solid game than one filled with bugs and rushed to market. One thing to look forward to when the game finally comes out is the awesome looking Ultimate Songbird Edition.
Most of the 3D printed objects we’ve featured have that 3D printed look: a single-colored material that has sharp and exact edges or grooves, something that looks like a prototype. Which is why I was really blown away by this piece made by Greg Petchkovsky:
At first glance, London-based duo Tim Noble and Sue Webster’s new exhibition called Nihilistic Optimistic looks like a collection of discarded junk and random wood fixtures. But shine a light on them and take a look at the shadows they’ll cast on the wall, and you will be amazed.
I’ve got enough problems with spiders. They just creep me out. I can handle the occasional daddy long-legs or jumping spider, but giant spiders – forget about it. And giant metal robot spiders are the stuff of my worst nightmares.
The species of legendary Jedi master Yoda is one of the mysteries of Star Wars. Whatever he is, all we know is that he’s small and green. If you ever wondered what he’d look like if he had more or less the same skin as humans, sculptor Andrea Eusebi has a possible answer.
