With this immersive installation, French artist Serge Salat invites visitors to take a journey through endless layers of space, decked out with cubic shapes, panels of mirrors, shifting lights and music. “Beyond Infinity” is a multi-sensory, multimedia experience that blends Eastern Chinese with Western Renaissance. Inspired by the Suzhou Gardens, a masterpiece of Chinese landscape, the three-lined trigram of I Ching is the main pattern that organizes the space of the work. Salat uses mirrors as optical illusions, exploding a single room into spatial infinity.

In one of the most impressive advertising ideas I have ever seen, Singapore-based art director and designer Chan Hwee Chong uses a single long line to create spiral recreations of famous artworks . In an inspired advertising campaign for Faber-Castell, designer Chan Hwee Chong demonstrates his unbelievable talent by creating spiral illustrations inspired by some of the most popular masterpieces in history. Using the above mentioned company’s pens, he starts with a blank canvas, and by drawing a continuous line in a spiral he somehow manages to make detailed reproductions of the famous works of art. The level of precision and control in Chong’s creations is simply amazing, and although I watched a short video of him in action, I’m still not sure how he manages to achieve such detailed reproductions with a single line. via Neatorama
Here's what we made at the preschool this week. It's a project most people are familiar with, but I do want to start documenting our weekly preschool projects here once again. It's been a little rough getting into our handwork this year...we have sixteen new students and of those only one is four years old...the rest are three. And many, a young three. So we've started out slowly...working with beeswax one day a week, drawing another, last week we practiced using scissors.
One fascinating thing about building a large scale work in CAD space is the incidental creation of all kinds of interesting visual artifacts. A three dimensional object must be both defined mathematically in a way that can be processed by a machine as well as represented on a screen in a way that is both understood and manipulated by a human eye/brain. The designers of CAD software have created all kinds of methods to help in this process.

I'm all for someone's right to non-perminantly deface a monument celebrating a foreign invasion and occupation of their country. There is little difference in this than the destruction of the various Nazi made changes to Paris after the Second World War. If you find yourself hand wringing for the Soviets who took over Bulgaria I would suggest learning more about the Soviet invasion before deciding this was wrong or somehow lamentable. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
