4:34pm March 27, 2014. Outside the Guggenheim collection.
Fun fact: When I try to type “uggggggh” with a lot of g’s, my phone tries to autocorrect it to “Guggenheim”.
Jólan van der Wiel is a Dutch designer harnessing the power of nature to create unbelievable forms. His candlesticks begin as resin packed with iron oxide. Then, through a pulley system fitted with large magnets, the resin is pulled along the magnetic field lines into shapes that represent a freakin’ force of physics, visualized right before our eyes. The invisible made visible.
When the resin sets, the magnetic field spikes are written in air forever, with no human intervention!
I made a boob boots! Hopefully I’ll be able to post better pictures in the near future.
Needless to say, my boobies hurt.
Art Student Hand-Illuminates, Binds a Copy of Tolkien’s Silmarillion
German art student Benjamin Harff decided for his exam at the Academy of Arts to do something only slightly ambitious — to hand-illuminate and bind a copy of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Silmarillion. It took him six months of work. In very 21st century elvish-monk style, he hand-illuminated the text which had been printed on his home Canon inkjet printer. He worked with a binder to assemble the resulting book. (Source)
