“Rube Goldberg machine

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rube Goldberg machinecontraptioninventiondevice, or apparatus is a deliberately over-engineered or overdone machine that performs a very simple task in a very complicated fashion, usually including a chain reaction. The expression is named after American cartoonist and inventor Rube Goldberg (1883–1970).

Over the years, the expression has expanded to mean any confusing or complicated system.”

These animals unbelievably made from tissue paper are so fun   Leave a comment

“In what might be the most creative use of tissue ever, Fuyu Arai created this wonderful stop motion animation video for Nepia, a Japanese tissue paper company. It shows different animals like birds, dogs, kangaroos, frogs, etc. being formed through just tissue paper. The animation is so fluid that you almost believe that these tissue animals are alive.

Here’s the full video. The making of video that shows how all of this was done is below it.”

 

These animals unbelievably made from tissue paper are so fun.

The entire alphabet, photographed on butterfly wings   Leave a comment

 

“Nature photographer Kjell Bloch Sandved has amassed a massive collection of butterfly and moth wings, capturing a host of unusual patterns. Using those patterns, he has assembled entire butterfly alphabets.

This is just one of Sandved’s alphabets; he has a second butterfly alphabet and a more varied nature alphabet. He has posters of the alphabets available on his website, but he also sells custom prints that let you spell out names or messages in butterfly wings.

Fabian Oefner – Black Hole on Vimeo   Leave a comment

” “Black Hole” is a series of images, which shows paint modeled by the centripetal force. The setup is very simple: Various shades of acrylic paint are dripped onto a metallic rod, which is connected to a drill. When switched on, the paint starts to move away from the rod, creating these amazing looking structures.

The motion of the paint happens in a blink of an eye, the images you see are taken only millisecond after the drill was turned on. To capture the moment, where the paint forms that distinctive shape, I connected a sensor to the drill, which sends an impulse to the flashes. These specialized units are capable of creating flashes as short as a 1/40000 of a second, freezing the motion of the paint.”

AN: amazing shots and creative thinking to even conceive this form of photograpic artistic capture imagery.
