Kinetic Wind-Powered Sculptures by Anthony Howe

Howe’s artwork is designed to respond to the exterior natural environment of wind and light. In his artist statement, Howe explains: “I attempt, with an economy of means, to construct objects whose visual references range from lo-tech sci-fi paraphernalia to microbiological or astronomical models. Utilizing primarily stainless steel armatures that are driven either by hammered curvilinear shapes or flat fiberglass covered discs, I hope the pieces assume a spare, linear elegance when conditions are still, mutating to raucous animation when the wind picks up. Multiple axis finely balanced forms, both symmetrical and asymmetrical, conspire to create a visually satisfying three-dimensional harmony.

Le Temple des Tigres « Le monastère n’est pas seulement pour l’homme mais aussi pour tous les animaux qui cherchent la tranquillité ».

En 1999, le temple recueille un bébé tigre orphelin. Dans les mois qui suivent, les villageois et la police amènent au temple huit autres tigres dont la mère a été tuée par des braconniers. Le Temple Wat Pa Luangta Bua Yannasamoanno gagne alors son nom de Temple des Tigres. Depuis, les tigres ne cessent d’affluer et le monastère a ouvert ses portes au public avec pour objectif de construire avec le fruit des recettes « Tiger Island », une réserve pour les tigres.

Application Le vieux rêve des photographes amateurs est sur le point de se réaliser: effacer sans souci personnes et véhicules qui s’invitent par surprise sur les clichés. Un petit clic pour la photographie, mais un bond de géant pour le photographe. Le problème est aussi vieux que la photographie elle-même: Tout est prêt pour le cliché, sujet cadré, lumière ajustée, et voilà que quelqu’un surgit au dernier moment dans le champ, ruinant la prise de vue. Le souci est certes devenu relatif à l’âge des appareils numériques, qui permettent de multiplier les essais. Il reste néanmoins difficile de dégager le terrain devant un monument connu ou un paysage fameux. La situation pourrait bien changer. Caméscope intelligent Cette invention, baptisée Remove, pourrait être intégrée aux prochains appareils de photo et être disponible sous forme d’App pour les smartphones. Le concept est simple. Le site engadget a testé l’application Android avec un Galaxy Nexus et un Galaxy S2.

Carved Book Landscapes by Guy Laramee

Of these works he says: So I carve landscapes out of books and I paint Romantic landscapes. Mountains of disused knowledge return to what they really are: mountains. Zen Table by Simon Hallam.
