    What was the medium used for these? They look incredible

    à première vue j’ai cru que c’était du textile, mais on dirait plutôt une sorte de pâte
    l’effet est fort, on dirait une matière vivante, on dirait une flore aquatique

    The clean, high class environment is half the battle.

  • Mike Hooooooooood

    is it just me or do all of those look delicious?


    these are incredibly detailed and look extremely time consuming. Great dedication.

    nah, the organic mounds, (third from the top and at the bottom) are incredible, beyond incredible. To me , the works are overwhelmingly beautiful, and there beauty is enhanced by there visionary originality. The mind is baffled by how the artist came about decorating the froms in this way, it appears to me that the artist instinctively knew that the colours, shapes and repetition would naturally work with the objects presence.

    The first sculpture is Polyurethan Foam, the third from the top is Polymer Clay.

The Hateful Eight Roadshow


Director Quentin Tarantino and cinematographer Bob Richardson wanted their latest film, The Hateful Eight, to be the eleventh film ever to be shot in Ultra Panavision (as wide as widescreen gets) and with the help of the film company they were able to pull it off.

The Hateful Eight will be projected in 70mm in select theatres on Christmas day as a good old fashioned roadshow, meaning it will feature an overture, intermission, playbill, and extra footage!

Watch the featurette below and start the countdown.

This Pop-Up Book Folds into a Functioning Camera!


After numerous prototypes, Kelli Anderson perfected a sequence of cuts and folds that could turn an ordinary piece of paper into a fully functional camera. The Book is a Camera is the ultimate pop-up experience: a book that not only explains how cameras work but actually becomes one!

The coolest part is you can support Kelli and purchase the book here but she specifically designed her pinhole camera under a Creative Commons share-alike license so you can also download the template yourself, build it, examine it, and use the knowledge to even make your own variant!

Kelli and I both spoke at Blend here in Vancouver and her talk was one of my favourites. She spoke about a wide variety of her past work including her counterfeit New York Times newspaper (she produced hundreds of thousands of copies and distributed it on the streets of New York), her amazing stop-motion tribute to the Eameses’ iconic film “Power of Ten” using images sourced from Google Images, and her paper record player/wedding invitations.

She’s the kinda person it’s almost hard to write about because she’s doing so many wildly different things. She’s currently working on a music video so stayed tuned for that!

More images and a video of her book/camera below!
