SPARKED: A Live Interaction Between Humans and Quadcopters

Published on 22 Sep 2014

Cirque du Soleil, ETH Zurich, and Verity Studios have partnered to develop a short film featuring 10 quadcopters in a flying dance performance. The collaboration resulted in a unique, interactive choreography where humans and drones move in sync. Precise computer control allows for a large performance and movement vocabulary of the quadcopters and opens the door to many more applications in the future.

New Dioramas | Sohei NISHINO in London |   Leave a comment

“The Diorama Maps project is a joyous mixture of photography and cartography, inspired in part by the 18th century Japanese map-maker Ino Tadataka. To make his “Diorama Maps,” Sohei Nishino spends months in a city, exploring its many vantage points. During this time he shoots thousands of pictures, which he then painstakingly hand-prints, trims to size, and compiles into huge tableaux collages from which he issues the limited edition photographic prints in two sizes. The effect is not a traditional bird’s-eye view but a wonderfully fragmented, enlightened way of seeing three dimensions in one plane.”

“Artistect” Fuses The Styles Of Legendary Painters And Iconic Architects | The Creators Project   Leave a comment

“Artistect” Fuses The Styles Of Legendary Painters And Iconic Architects | The Creators Project.

“Italian illustrator Federico Babina has previously united famous architecture and movie postersbuildings and bands, and even created an architecture alphabet. For his latest graphic design series, he’s fusing iconic artists with architects who share similar styles or creative processes—even if not overtly apparent.

Artistect includes 25 images that combines the characteristics of Keith Haring and Willem-Jan Neutelings, Kazimir Malevich and Zaha Hadid, René Magritte and Diller Scofidio, and other iconic creatives. Though the artists’ overlapping styles may be extrapolated, Babina proves again that he’s got a knack for finding kindred creative spirits in artists from disparate fields. Kandinsky and Wright make sense together—like an expressionist’s pairing of ketchup and eggs.

See some artist-architect fusions below, and head to Babina’s site for more of his illustration syntheses. “

100 Ideas That Changed Art | Brain Pickings   Leave a comment

Maria Popova is such a profound and prolific reader and analyist of thinking……do follow her ” Brain Pickings” blog…….here is a superb sampling of her work: ( intro ….”On the heels of yesterday’s 100 Ideas That Changed Photography comes 100 Ideas That Changed Art (public library) — a succinct account of the most influential developments in the history of art, from cave paintings to the internet, compiled by art historian and broadcaster Michael Bird. From conceptual innovations like negative space (#98), color codes (#33), and street art (#94) to landmarks of communication like making books (#21),propaganda (#12), and handwriting (#24) to ideological developments like “less is more”(#30), protest (#79), and the body as surface(#9), each idea is contextualized in a 500-word essay with key visual examples.” )

Old Bicycle Parts Become Brilliant New Bike Racks – CityLab   Leave a comment

Old Bicycle Parts Become Brilliant New Bike Racks – CityLab.

Innovative, creative and practical.


“Old Bicycle Parts Become Brilliant New Bike Racks

Recycling, Picasso-style.

Andreas Scheiger

Technically, turning bike handlebars and seats into something of a bull was Picasso’s idea first. But Austrian designer Andreas Scheiger’s brilliant interpretation of Picasso’s Tête de Taureau shows how all sorts of modern bike parts can become gorgeously functional.

Scheiger has created a whole series of these bicycle hunting trophies, which can hold anything from umbrellas to hats to more bikes. A few pre-made versions are for sale in his online shop, but he also shows those who are so inclined how he made them here.

The Fascinating Neuroscience Of Color | Co.Design | business + design   Leave a comment

The Fascinating Neuroscience Of Color | Co.Design | business + design…….click on the link for the complete article.

The Fascinating Neuroscience Of Color



“Neuroscientist Bevil Conway thinks about color for a living. An artist since youth, Conway now spends much of his time studying vision and perception at Wellesley College and Harvard Medical School. His science remains strongly linked to art–in 2004 he and Margaret Livingstonefamously reported that Rembrandt may have suffered from flawed vision–and in recent years Conway has focused his research almost entirely on the neural machinery behind color.

“I think it’s a very powerful system,” he tells Co.Design, “and it’s completely underexploited.”

Conway’s research into the brain’s color systems has clear value for designers and artists like himself. It stands to reason, after all, that someone who understands how the brain processes color will be able to present it to others in a more effective way. But the neuroscience of color carries larger implications for the rest of us. In fact, Conway thinks his insights into color processing may ultimately shed light on some fundamental questions about human cognition…….

Conway believes scientists can learn a lot from examining the strategies artists use to clarify color. “The best access we have of what color is and what it does to us is by studying the work of people who have studied it obsessively. Matisse is one of those people,” he says. “I think it’s extremely valuable, and there’s been very limited work treating that corpus as the sort of scientific evidence that it will turn out to be.”

Eyes Can Hear | design mind   Leave a comment


Jared Ficklin in this blog article states : ” Making sound visible is a hobby of mine. After years pursuing real-time sound visualization, I became intrigued by the idea of eliminating time and allowing listeners to take in an entire song as a single visual impression. The result reveals an unseen beauty. “
