YAMAMOTO GENDAI ODANI, Motohiko (b.1972) ODANI Motohiko Web ART iT Red Nose Studio - StumbleUpon Hungarian artist creates impossible-looking sculptures from pencils An artist’s eye always sees things, as humble as a pencil, in a much different way than the others. While pencil is a mere writing and drawing instrument for most of us, artists such as Dalton Ghetti use them to create wonderful pieces of complex art for the rest of us to admire. Another artist, specializing in miniature artworks, is a Budapest-based artist and sculptor known by the name of Cerkahegyzo. The sculptor, whose tools are nothing more than small carving tools, fine blades, needles, sandpaper and files, uses the wood and lead of a pencil as the base and body of the sculptures.

Zeitgeist's Irregular Twin Cloud II, Walls is building tension between an uncontrolled catastrophe and the controlled, abstract and clean environment of the engineer's drawing space. Considered a homage to Daniel Libeskind's early drawing work "Micromegas" and the "War and Architecture" drawings of Lebbeus Woods, "Cloud II, Walls" makes it possible to think two realms as one: the potential of systemic failure together with the assertion of control and the beauty of generating an artifact of indeterminate form in between. It is also part of Zeitguised's larger strand of work that is concerned with clouds of grey goo: a transitionary, metastable mass that is nothing yet becomes anything, if only for a fleeting moment. A swarming system that shows symptoms of life and the agility of a connected organism, the cloud is a bastardization of the abstract and the real as a twitching borderline between fiction and concretization. Scripting: Julius Steinhauser Sound: Zeitguised with Michael Fakesch.

Among his sculptural works are two incredible series of carved book landscapes and structures entitled Biblios and The Great Wall, where the dense pages of old books are excavated to reveal serene mountains, plateaus, and ancient structures. Of these works he says: So I carve landscapes out of books and I paint Romantic landscapes. Laramee’s next show will be in April of 2012 at the Galerie d’Art d’Outremont in Montreal.

DIY Braided Bead Bracelet - Honestly WTF - StumbleUpon It’s been awhile since our last bracelet DIY. I don’t know about you, but our wrists have been begging for another colorful addition for months now. So after playing with some materials that were already on hand, we’ve created a tutorial for a braided bead bracelet, which is a not so distant cousin of the hex nut and wrap bracelet. You’ll need: Cut the waxed linen cord into a 26″ and 19″ piece. Tie a knot about half an inch down from the loops. Start braiding the strands. Push the bead against the base of the braid, and cross the left strand over the middle. Keep a finger at the base of the braid, holding the beads in their place and keeping the braid tight. Finish the bracelet with another inch of braided cord, measuring it against the wrist. Thread on a two hole button – two strands through one hole and one strand through another. Trim the end. Your bracelet is finished! (all images by HonestlyWTF)

Graphic design company in Altrincham, south of Manchester, providing creative design for print, web design, illustrations and logos. Realistic Human Wire Sculptures Scribbled Line People este o colaborare între designerul şi ilustratorul grafic Ayaka Ito şi programatorul Randy Church, care oferă instantanee cu oameni tocaţi. Combinarea fiecarei expertize creative cu o admiraţie comună pentru sculpturile din fire ale lui Rachel Ducker şi picturile sfidătoare Flash ale designerului Erik Natzke, a dus la descoperirea unei modalitatăţi de a crea o interfaţă care integrează lucrul 3D în compoziţiile fotografice. Folosind aplicaţii ca Flash şi Photoshop, Ito şi Church dau o formă nouă imaginilor prin portrete întreţesute în care subiectul devine parte a mediului. Compus dintr-o mulţime de şiruri încurcate care ar fi putut fi rezultatul unei brize spontane, fiecare subiect este fin, suprarealist şi filat. În acelaşi timp, feţele abia perceptibile din fiecare imagine provoacă o familiaritate, dând impresia că deja ştiam cum arătau subiectele cândva.
