Seattle-based artist Mike Leavitt creates amusing hybrid sculptures by mixing the faces of famous directors like Hayao Miyazaki, Quentin Tarantino, and Wes Anderson, with references to beloved characters from their most memorable films.
I’ve always enjoyed illustrator Christoph Niemann’s ink drawings (over top of photographs) that he adds to his Tumblr and Instagram from time to time. Was excited to see a fantastic animated one of a clock chasing a train recently too – have a look at the animation and other drawings below!
This looks kinda cool/nerdy. Blips are a set of ultra thin lenses by Smart Micro Optics that turn your phone into a microscope or magnifying glass! Apparently based on imaging systems developed in the neuroscience department of the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), the sticker-like lenses look kinda cheap to be honest but could be fun for a little bit. The image above is a human eye shot using the lens. Watch the video below.
In consultation with scientists and beekeepers Manitoba-born artist Aganetha Dyck has developed an artistic practice using hundreds of bees to “mend” the broken and second-hand objects she collects. The resulting honeycomb-fused sculptures raise issues about waste and recycling as well as environmental concerns as bees and other pollinators are facing extinction due to climate change and pesticides. See more images below!
