As Star Wars has gone on to become a popular culture phenomenon, much of the credit goes to its characters. Darth Vader, for one, has helped the films achieve massive success. His rise as a Jedi Knight to his fall to the dark side as documented in the six “episodes” of the franchise is not only regarded as one of the most iconic villains in the history of film, but also one of the best characters in cinema. Despite being billed as the main antagonist in the latter trilogy of the series, one of the reasons for the popularity of Darth Vader among people is his depth and complexity.
Serious gamers know just how time-consuming gaming is, often making it difficult to do anything besides working (only to buy more games) and playing the games themselves. Even so, gamers usually do still manage to have lives outside of the console; these cakes are some of the amazing creations born as a result. Consoles While most people dedicate their gaming obsessions to the specific games they play, others adore entire consoles. For those who worship at the altar of the original NES, Debbie Does Cakes has made a simply amazing cake complete with some of the system’s most classic characters.
This December, in a surprisingly simple yet ridiculously amazing installation for the Queensland Gallery of Modern Ar , artist Yayoi Kusama constructed a large domestic environment, painting every wall, chair, table, piano, and household decoration a brilliant white, effectively serving as a giant white canvas. Over the course of two weeks, the museum’s smallest visitors were given thousands upon thousands of colored dot stickers and were invited to collaborate in the transformation of the space, turning the house into a vibrantly mottled explosion of color. How great is this? Given the opportunity my son could probably cover the entire piano alone in about fifteen minutes.
According to the U.N. Population Fund , on October 31, 2011, the earth became home to 7 billion people. And the population is growing quickly. Estimates put the planet at 8 billion in another 14 years, which is an eye blink compared to the 123 years it took us to go from 1 billion to 2 billion. That means a weighty impact on our planet.
Using the fast-paced streets of Ho Chi Minh City as a backdrop, time-lapse photographer Rob Whitworth set out to illustrate the hustling population in one of his favorite cities in the world. It’s a stunning look at the hectic traffic of the Vietnamese city, with some awesome music in the background. Using over 10,000 RAW images shot over several sessions, Whitworth paints a portrait of a controlled chaos that anyone could appreciate. The criss-crossing flow of traffic during both day and night makes for stunning visual fodder. Watching the action speed up is reminiscent of witnessing a colony of ants or a hive of bees moving in a symphony of motion. There is real beauty in the complexity of the patterns of motion as vehicles approach each other head on, but somehow keep from hitting each other.
