Ghostcubes: A Dazzling System of Interlocking Wooden Cubes by Erik Åberg

Created by Swedish designer Erik Åberg the Ghostcube is a fascinating system of interlocking wood cubes that can be twisted, turned, and folded to create increasingly complex shapes reminiscent of origami. The Ghostcube variations demonstrated in the video above seem to rely on hinges that connect all of the various pieces together. Åberg appears to have open-sourced the design in 30 minutes of video footage which you can purchase from his website. (via The Awesomer) Slitherstition on Behance.

" - Shakespeare's 'Macbeth' For as long as groups of humans have agreed on patterns of belief, symbols have existed, with signs of light and dark - good and evil - the most prominent among them. Like building blocks for morality, these symbols, particular, of course, to cultures and religions, are familiar to us all, and taught from an early age in stories - a means for our elders to pass down their values and cautionary tales. It seems to me that in these, no symbol appears more frequently than the snake. From Christianity's Original Sin to Hadiths in Islam; Zulu tradition and iconography drawn from the Ancient Egyptians, in a world history so diverse and conflicted one thing appears to be agreed on: the snake is to be feared. Perhaps it's simply the unfortunate by-product of its manner and appearance.

Accordion paper folding // Candle holders. I‘ve been playing around with accordion paper folding for about a year now and thought it was high time that I put something on the site!

Accordion paper folding // Candle holders

The technique is really addictive. This project shows how to make a simple candle holder. All you need is some paper, a glass jar and a little bit of glue so it’s a really affordable project. If you fancy having a go then you will find a full how-to after the jump. ***IMPORTANT*** If you want to use this as a candle holder please make sure that you put a glass jar inside the paper cuff and ensure that there is no paper hanging over the top of the jar (otherwise it may set on fire).
