You know, sometimes it is hard to find a proper tone of voice to write these introductions. So how about I express what I wanted through some interpretive dance? *flails extremities randomly. That would do it, right? Being all multidisciplinary-like, merging art (of flailing) with technology (of flailing), just like our today’s links:
|Twenty two servos and an awesome clock |
[ebrithil] used an Arduino Mega and 22 servo motors to create an awesome clock that looks like an LCD display and sounds like… servo motors.
|Bioinspired fibers change color when stretched |
Bastard hogberry is a weird name for a shiny fruit that uses iridescent colour to attract birds. Now scientists at Harvard University recreated its light reflective properties to create a material that changes colour when stretched.
|Creating cloudscape sculptures from laser cut layers |
Beautiful 3D clouds out of opal acrylic by New Zealand-based artist Helen Reynolds.
|Resurrecting 45 Roses of Jericho with an installation monitoring visitors |
Another interactive installation controlled by Arduino Mega. It features 45 Roses of Jericho which are a hardy desert plant that can survive without water for long periods of time. One plant is randomly selected to be watered based on the number of people visiting the installation.
|Heavy machinery sculptures |
Belgian artist Wim Delvoyle uses laser-cut Corten steel to create life size sculptures of heavy machinery equipment where all the shapes are interpreted as complex and lacy Gothic patterns.
Now, the conclusion will be a slower dance, as everyone is tired from browsing too much internets. Probably some gentle seaweed-like swaying would reflect the idea of closing sentences of this wonderful post. Until next week and have a wonderful summer evening, wherever you are.
