Ayaka Ito And Randy Church Put Their Photo Subjects Through The Shredder Scribbled Line People is a collaboration between graphic designer and illustrator Ayaka Ito and programmer Randy Church that features, to put it simply, snapshots of shredded people. Combining each of their respective creative expertises along with a shared admiration for Rachel Ducker ’s tautly wired sculptures and the defiant Flash paintings of interactive designer Erik Natzke , the two discovered a way to create an interface that integrates 3D line work into photographic compositions. Using applications like Flash and Photoshop, Ito and Church reconfigure images into interwoven portraits where the subject becomes part of the environment. Comprised of saturated strings entangled by what could have been a spontaneous breeze, each subject looks simultaneously smooth, surreal and spun.
Space is one of the least known and most beautiful places that humans know of. Nebulae, planets, supernovas, asteroids and comets are only a few of the vast array of celestial objects that we know of. As science continues to advance, one can only theorize about the incredible discoveries that will be made during our lifetimes. In this post, we’ll look at 30 more breathtaking space artworks , created by the artists themselves, to show what could be possible somewhere in the depths of space. And even if not, well, they sure make a good wallpaper.
Pawel Hynek's 2006 image "Obsolete" depicts a homeless robot begging for electrical power; it's striking and funny as well as a little uncomfortable-making. It reminds me of one of the most demented scenes in science fiction history: the moment in Ian McDonald's stupendous novel The Broken Land in which a re-animated severed head is reduced to performing sexual favors on a street-corner in exchange for nutrient bath to fill the shallow dish in which its neck-stump rests.

Published on Thursday, March 10, 2011 by administrator This AquaDom was built in one of Berlin hotels in 2003. It’s the biggest cylindrical acrylic glass aquarium in the world filled with 900,000 liters of seawater and 2,600 fish of 56 species. Two divers work full-time to clean this huge 25 meter tall aquarium! No wonder that AquaDom that has costed over 12 million euros is the main attraction in Berlin. I wouldn’t mind taking the build-in transparent elevator and exploring the sea world myself!
Natsumi Hayashi is a sweet-looking Japanese girl who, one day, decided to take self-portraits..of herself levitating. She can be spotted in and around Tokyo, equipped with her SLR and her self-timer. When she feels the moment strike, she presses the shutter button down and then, quite literally, "jumps" into place.

A group of local inhabitants where instructed by trainers from TintasCoral as part of the project "Tudo de Cor para Santa Marta."
Tilt-shift miniature faking is now the popular and fashionable method of making big objects look like tiny models. All you need to start is essentially a camera equipped with a tilt-shift lens which simulates a shallow depth of field. For this effect is usually achieved through creative technique in which a photographer manipulates the angle of a tilt-shift lens to distort the focus of a life-sized scene captured by the camera, thereby creating an illusive depth of field usually produced by macro lenses. Most faked tilt-shift photos are taken at quite good height to further imitate the effect of looking down on a miniature.
