Deckart Soap Bubble Gallery: Image Six German photographer and artist Karl E. Deckart is known for his thorough, precise, and beautiful work both in photography through the microscope and with macro camera systems. This gallery of interference photographs made with soap films is a testament to both Deckart's skill as a photographer and his understanding of the physical phenomena that surround our everyday lives. Delicate shimmering spheres with surfaces of constantly shifting swirls of color, soap bubbles derive their beauty from basic principles in optics and quantum physics. Karl Bang Visionary Art.

Karl Bang Visionary Art

Karl was born as Bong Ka in Shanghai in 1935. He was formally trained by the master artists of Chinese painting and he also formally trained in the European painting tradition in France and Belgium. These multiple styles led to Karl Bang's multi-cultural blending of the traditional Chinese artistic discipline with the more personally expressive European style, and later also included traditions from around the entire globe. This cross-cultural fusion of styles has earned him the title of "Master of Contemporary Eclecticism". During Mao Tse-tung's Cultural Revolution in China, Karl was obligated to paint only the propaganda images the government demanded him to paint.

Art MoCo: "Human Candles" Walter Martin and Paloma Munoz have been collaborating since 1993 to produce some excellent examples of sassy sculpture for private collections as well as public art.

Art MoCo: "Human Candles"

The Human Candles are life-sized wax candles that produce a terribly eerie effect as they are burned and the humans hollow out, wax dripping instead of the customary sweat. Their shoe/feet combinations are just as off-putting, and indeed, a lot of their work presents unexpected anatomical reminders or intrusions.

But it is their sense of humour that pushes forward the twists, and it is difficult to keep the corner's of one's mouth from rising up in appreciation. &the art of david ho& Metro Arts and Architecture - Metro Bits - Moscow Metro. Let's be frank - this is the mother of all metros - elegant and impressive compared with the rather grubby affairs in London and New York, and full of passion and style if you ever feel like putting it up against the soulless affairs of the Far East.

Moscow Metro

Many of Moscow's metro stations are architectural masterpieces, heavily themed-up with sculptures, reliefs and mosaics expounding the benefits of a healthy communist life, so expect a full-on dose of soldiers, workers, tractor-drivers, artists and sportsmen. The Moscow Metro not only looks good - it really works efficiently too. Prices are very reasonable (60 roubles will buy you a ticket valid for 5 trips city-wide), and the trains run very frequently and very fast. Of course navigating Moscow's metro can be tricky, especially if you're not so familiar with the language.

Perl-bin/ : : p u p p y 5 2 . c o m : : Rapid Prototyping Models. Background Rapid Prototyping or Solid Freeform Fabrication refers to a range of new technologies which construct physical three-dimensional objects by assembling thin layers of material under computer control.

Rapid Prototyping Models

Objects can be made which are extremely accurate, complex, and beautiful, and which no other technology can produce. For basic information on this rapidly evolving technology, I recommend this site or this site or search Google for new developments. Presently this is a somewhat expensive technology used mainly in high-end product design, and in research universities. But in the future, the cost will certainly come down and everyone will be able to create amazing physical objects with these machines. Mathematics.

"This Is Your Brain on Music"

The affection would not make sense to those even just a bit older or younger, who might regard Weezer’s guitar pop as clever and pleasing but also somewhat too shallow to have much lasting significance. Those of a certain age, though, experienced the group’s 1994 eponymous debut release, known to fans as the Blue Album, as a thing of precise and overflowing emotion — 10 tracks that functioned like keys to secret locks in the teenage brain, opening up all the awkwardness and anxiousness of those melodramatic high school years. We all have music like this, music that burns into the soul when we’re young and remains essential for the rest of time. For me it was the Blue Album and anything the Smashing Pumpkins did up until about 1998.
