Mesmerizing Video of the Day: 3D-Printed Fibonacci Zoetrope Sculptures

Fibonacci-Zoetrope-Sculptures

This mesmerizing video features 3d-printed zoetrope sculptures designed by Stanford University teacher, John Edmark. The shapes are generated based on Fibonacci numbers, the same relationship you will find in pinecones, and sunflowers. Zoetropes traditionally rely on a strobe light for the human eye to perceive the animation; this video employs a fast shutter to achieve the same effect.

Artist Profile: Malin Gabriella Nordin

Malin Gabriella Nordin is one of my absolute favourite artists, as evidence by the sheer sheer of times I’ve posted about her (here, here, here, here, here). I came across this wonderful video after posting the Anton Alvarez profile from the same Vans Documentary Series a couple days ago. This is honestly one of the best artist profiles I’ve seen (all credit to Vincent Skoglund who beautifully captured it). It got me super pumped to go and make stuff, and I could relate so much to her and her desire to create quickly!

I’m so inspired! Highly recommend watching this video below!

These are Not Pieces of Trash They Are Detailed Paintings on Carved Wood

tom-pfannerstill05

What you’re looking at is not a discarded cigarette package, it’s a detailed painting by artist Tom Pfannerstill on a carved piece of basswood. His artworks are made based on objects he finds in the street, which he carefully catalogs, noting the time and place of each. These re-created artifacts act as a very personal record of his movements through time and space. For him, creating these 3D memories is “strangely comforting in a world that is increasingly electronic and virtual”.
