“Shogyo Mujo”: A Traveling Art Installation Sculpture

“Shogyo Mujo” is a traveling art installation developed by BARTKRESA design & Josh Harker.

“In it’s original iteration it was destined for the Playa at the 2014 Burning Man Festival.

The 360 degree projected sculpture evolved to become the visual centerpiece of both the 2014 Adobe Max & 2015 Siggraph Conferences. In the future, we hope to showcase the art installation in museums around the world.”

Selected Artworks by Joseph Loughborough

Vor 2 Jahren hatte ich die beeindruckenden Kunstwerke von Joseph Loughborough entdeckt und daraufhin hier vorgestellt. Der Künstler hat seine Techniken weiterentwickelt und arbeitet nun vor allem mit Holzkohle und Blattgold, was seine Bilder noch eindrucksvoller erscheinen lässt.

Die hier gezeigten Arbeiten des 1981 in Portsmouth, an der Südküste Englands geboren Künstlers, sind eine kleine Auwahl aus seinem abwechslungsreichen Portfolio, welches vollständig auf seiner Website bewundert werden kann. Joseph Loughborough lebt und arbeitet aktuell in Berlin.

The Last Audio Cassette Factory

“In fact, National Audio Company (NAC) – the last audio cassette maker in America – has had its best year since it opened in 1969!

Springfield, MO-based National Audio Company opened in 1969 and when other major manufacturers abandoned tape manufacturing for CD production in the late 1990s, the company held on tight. Now, the cassette maker is pumping out more cassettes than ever before.”

What is Dark Matter & Dark Energy?

What is dark energy? What is dark matter? Well, if we knew exactly we would have a nobel prize – we know that they exist though. So what do we know about those strange things?

Kurzgesagt – a team of designers, journalists and musicians who want to make science look beautiful. Because it is beautiful.

Beth Cavener: Sculptor

The sculptures Beth Cavener creates focus on human psychology, stripped of context and rationalization, and articulated through animal and human forms.

Cavener wants to pry at those uncomfortable, awkward edges between animal and human. Entangled in their own internal and external struggles, the figures express frustration for the human tendency towards cruelty and lack of understanding.

Made by Bas Berkhout • Music: Matthew Davies • Sound Design: Peter Stoel.

Warm Snow by Ira Elshansky

Warm Snow is an animation short about the relationship between a father and his grown up daughter. It starts out in an ordinary situation with the father and daughter sitting at the kitchen table. The daughter is waiting for her food to get warm and is annoyed by her father’s questions and suggestions.

The situation then develops and transforms into a surrealistic world full of love and pain.

Direction & animation: Ira Elshansky • Sound design: Tal Bar-Levav • Music: Fika Magarik.
