Grzegorz Wróbel The Egg-Bot Kit We have mentioned Eggbot several times this year as we demonstrated it at Maker Faires in San Mateo and Detroit, as well as at the California state fair. And today, we’re very pleased to (finally) reveal the the design of our new kit. So what’s an Eggbot? It’s a machine capable of drawing on spherical or ellipsoidal surfaces. It’s worthwhile to point out that there’s actually quite a bit of history here in this project. The Eggbot has a rigid but adjustable chassis that allows you to mount spherical or egg-shaped objects of various sizes, and rotate them about their axis of symmetry using a stepping motor under computer control. Above, you can see how we adjust the eggbot adjusted for drawing on ping-pong balls. One of the major components of the chassis is this set of five individually routed 0.100″ (2.5 mm) fiberglass shapes. The Eggbot kit includes Brian Schmalz’s EiBotBoard (EBB), which includes a USB interface and dual microstepping bipolar stepper driver. And the results?
Jaw dropping hallucinatory street art | Cretive Design Art Photos and Artworks An illusion is described as a false mental image or conception which may be a misinterpretation of a real appearance or may be something imagined. Hence, It may be pleasing, harmless, or even useful. A hallucination however is a completely groundless, false conception, belief, or opinion, caused by a disordered imagination; it is particularly frequent today in the pathological sense, according to which it denotes hearing or seeing something that does not exist. So it is sometimes difficult to define whether art is creating an illusion or a hallucination in your mind when it is viewed. This type of art can lead to many questions and weird conclusions. Whatever it is that artists conjure up in our minds, these particular artists have done it extremely well. Mimmo Rubino Working in alleys and abandoned parts of Rome, Italy, the artist who’s also known as Flickrub holds symmetry in high esteem as he executes his deceptive street art in thick white paint.

Van Gogh's Paintings Get Tilt-Shifted (12 pics) After seeing how tilt-shift photography could make real world scenes appear like miniature models, Serena Malyon, a third-year art student, decided to simulate the effect on Van Gogh's famous paintings. Using Photoshop, she manipulated the light and adjusted the focus to make us see these paintings in ways we could have never imagined. Amazingly, nothing in these paintings was changed, added or removed. Update: Recently, I was able to get in touch with Serena to ask her how she came up with this idea. How did the idea come about to tilt-shift Van Gogh's paintings? Were you surprised by the reaction it received? Why did you choose Van Gogh's paintings to tilt-shift? His work was also really interesting because his paintings include a number of interesting details that we could focus in on and make that the centerpiece of the painting. Do you have plans to tilt-shift other paintings? Serena Malyon via [Artcyclopedia]
3D Paintings on Panes of Glass Using multiple layers of clear glass, Canada based David Spriggs and Chinese born Xia Xiaowan, transform flat artwork into 3D sculptures. Viewers are treated to different shifting perspectives of the works based on where they stand in the art space. Spriggs work revolves around powerful explosive imagery, often resembling storms, cosmic blasts or firework like explosions. Xiawan’s “spatial paintings,” which often feature distorted figures, are drawn individually using colored pencil on tinted glass.
