Pigment Bombs and Photography by Diver and Aguilar Diver & Aguilar is a photographic duo in London, composed of photographer Mike Diver and retouch artist Pedro Aguilar. Their work features a collection of high-end clients and fine art photography for clients such as GQ, Nike, Audi, The Financial Times and Graff Diamonds. For this absolutely beautiful / amazing (amazeful?) series of photos, they used a high speed flash and special effects triggers to freeze a moment in time that makes you wish that you were there to witness it. Though I'm sure the real thing couldn't live up to these perfectly sculpted images.

Why Are Data-Viz Designers So Obsessed With Circles? In 1726, Filippo Juvarra put the finishing touches on the dome of the Basilica of Superga, an intricately designed church in Turin, Italy. The artist painted the interior roof of the building with a kaleidoscopic pattern that when paired with the dome’s ring of windows creates the effect of ornate, concentric circles. Nearly 300 years later, in the French town of Cessy, engineers finished building the Compact Muon Solenoid, a massive particle detector that, when viewed in cross-section, bears a striking resemblance to Juvarra’s circular basilica dome. “These things look so similar, and yet they’re separated by 300 years,” says Manuel Lima. “One is all about religion and spirituality and the other is about science.” Lima, a design lead at Google and creator of the website Visual Complexity, was intrigued by the circle’s ubiquity. In his new book, Lima attempts to find out. From a psychological perspective, the circle represents happiness, unity, perfection, and wholeness.
World Press Photo of the year awarded to Samuel Aranda Samuel Aranda for The New York Times via Reuters A woman holding a wounded relative during protests in Sanaa, Yemen, on October 15, 2011.

Jurors said the photo of a veiled woman holding a wounded relative in her arms after a demonstration in Yemen captured multiple facets of the "Arab Spring" uprisings across the Middle last year. The winning photo was selected from 101,254 images submitted by 5,247 photographers from 124 countries. Aranda, a freelance photographer from Spain, traveled to Yemen on assignment for The New York Times. "What I would really like is for this photo to help the people of Yemen," he told The British Journal of Photography after learning of the award. Vincent Boisot / AP

One man, 100,000 toothpicks, and 35 years: An incredible kinetic sculpture of San Francisco Thirty five years ago I had yet to be born, but artist Scott Weaver had already begun work on this insanely complex kinetic sculpture, Rolling through the Bay, that he continues to modify and expand even today. The elaborate sculpture is comprised of multiple “tours” that move pingpong balls through neighborhoods, historical locations, and iconic symbols of San Francisco, all recreated with a little glue, some toothpicks, and an incredible amount of ingenuity. He admits in the video that there are several toothpick sculptures even larger than his, but none has the unique kinetic components he’s constructed. Via his website Weaver estimates he’s spent over 3,000 hours on the project, and the toothpicks have been sourced from around the world: I have used different brands of toothpicks depending on what I am building. I also have many friends and family members that collect toothpicks in their travels for me. See the sculpture for yourself at the Tinkering Studio through the end of June.
