Well, hey now. That’s pretty creative.

This is just… ugh. Incredible to see the work that goes into something like this. So much heart for the craft and just the workmanship that’s in it.
Via… somewhere. Ugh.
Probably late to this, but lovely.

Jeremy has a great ‘pay what you choose’ option for getting digital copies of this song plus all three of his fantastic albums. You can find em on his bandcamp page here:

Gorgeous short film on custom motorcycle builder Shinya Kimura. Stirs up the heart, this custom built motor art. Love the cuts, the use of sound and space. Growling engines and wonderful lines. Made my day. Salivate, ruminate, then go about your business.
This looks pretty cool, then you realize just how cool it really is when you see it’s made from wooden blocks. A stop motion of 4085 photo that must have been a real mind twister to put together by Nobody Beats The Drum’s VJ / visual artist Rogier van der Zwaag.
Nice work. And good writing always sounds better when read aloud.
Mobile Mobile upcycles fifty old agency cell phones (available after an agency-wide upgrade just two months prior). Each phone is individually addressed by a computer to cofunction and create a choral arrangement. Assigning each phone a tone, the mass is transformed into an aural form that appears to come alive, shimmering and flirting for onlookers.
This work from Eric Arnstein & Jeff Ryan combines two of my favorite things – creativity and bikes!

I created this photograph for the Kids Gallery of the Connecticut Science Center in Hartford. It shows 117 objects balancing on a single Lego block. No adhesives, glue or hidden supports were used. The stability of this improbable pile of objects is helped by positioning the center of gravity of each horizontal section directly above the Lego block and by lowering the center of gravity of the entire structure as much as possible through the use of hanging objects.
The process involved about a week of trial and error, with many, many crashes along the way. After settling on a design for the lower half of the structure, I worked on the horizontal segments separately, adding them to the stack with temporary supports in place. This allowed me to swap out different objects and shift them around until all the parts were in balance. I then removed the supports and took this photograph. The stack remained up until I decided to knock it down (captured on video!)
A papercraft head of yourself for Halloween? Of course. So awesome.
Just look at the planning and craftsmanship that went into this.
