I love these beautiful paintings by Jens Hesse, which are all inspired by digital distortion of one kind or another. The one above was influenced by the distortion created by datamoshed videos and the ones below were inspired by interrupted satellite signals. Found via Today and Tomorrow.
Thanks to Dan for sharing Siren Elise Wilhelmsen’s 365 – a knitting clock that knits over 365 days, 24 hours a day, creating a tangible representation of time. Great idea, and nice pun about literally stitching time. Found via Design Folio.
David B sent around this great video created by three ordinary guys who decided to take a trip of a lifetime. If this doesn’t inspire you to want to chuck it all in and travel the world, I don’t know what does. They did 11 countries in 44 days, and 18 flights and 38,000 miles later they have three one-minute videos showing what life is like around the world. They recorded everything from two cameras and ended up with over a terabyte of footage which they cut, mixed and matched into an awesomely seamless blend of every notable place they’ve been. This is an amazing result, which must have taken longer to edit than the trip itself! Found via Gizmodo
Gorgeous ice cream photography by Jonathon Kambouris, found on the Trendland website. It took me straight back to memories of 1980s slick images of ice creams and cocktails that adorned my bedroom walls. Almost super real, with a slightly gaudy edge. Looking further into his work I discovered his fantastic Decay project and exploding medication in his Rx series, which are also worth a look.
