Artist Elisa Ancori’s surreal series of aquatic metamorphoses. More images from “Five Mermaids” below.
In “NHDK,” fine artist Victor Enrich takes a single image of the NH Deutscher Kaiser Hotel in Munich and re-imagines it in a variety of different ways. Some changes are subtle, with Enrich simply adjusting the size or arrangement of the building, while adhering to basic architectural constraints. Others are absolutely mind-bending! Check out more images, plus a video compilation below!

Earlier this year I was invited out to a festival called IAM in Barcelona, and I spoke about my motivations for running this website. They recently uploaded my entire talk to Vimeo. This message in the image above is what I wanted to leave people with. For me, life is not about eliminating fear it’s about using it! I’m pretty much at a point now where I have no real desire to do anything if I’m not at least a little bit afraid to do it.
If you’ve followed Booooooom for a couple years everything in this video may be old news but if you’re new here and have no idea what Booooooom is or who I am (see how I brought it back to IAM) then feel free to watch the video of my talk below.
A selection of paintings from “Gravitant” by Barcelona-based artist Cinta Vidal. These paintings were recently exhibited at a gallery called Miscelanea in Barcelona, and each week they were rotated so that every orientation could be experienced. More images below.
Last month we launched a project to build a sculpture in Barcelona, at the IAM Festival, using pencils mailed in from all over the world. We collaborated with Vancouver-based studio Tangible Interaction to 3D-print special connectors that would allow us to connect the pencils together in a variety of ways. It was a pretty ambitious project considering we only had a few weeks to collect pencils and it would only work if we had lots.
You guys totally came through! All in all we had well over 1,000 pencils from all over the place: North and South America, Asia, Europe, Australia, India, and Sri Lanka! Thank you all for making our project in Barcelona a success! If you sent us a pencil you can now say that you have exhibited at the Design Museum of Barcelona, that’s pretty cool!
Here is a quick time lapse of people at the event building the sculpture with your pencils and a gallery of all the people who emailed in a photo of themselves. These photos represent a small fraction of all the people who took part in the project but I think it still beautifully represents the way the Internet can used to create an artwork using bits and pieces from all different countries.
Thank you everyone! Gallery of “pencil people” below!
