The fantastic paper sculptures of Cheong-ah Hwnag

papernooodle screenshotI spotted this piece of paper sculpture on facebook, doing the rounds without credit to the artist. Since I always feel a great unease about sharing photos of artists work without credit I decided to do some research.
I turned to  Tineye which is a reverse image search service and I found who created it within minutes and I was happily eyeballing more eye candy created by Cheong-ah Hwang.

You can find a Bio and details about the work on the artists website Papernoodle more on the flickr site

Flashmob recreate The Night Watch

This flashmob stunt in a shopping center reconstructed Rembrandt’s painting, The Night Watch. Performers in period dress gallop in on horses, arrive by swinging from balconies and abseiling down ropes to recreate a particular moment.

I think this is the best flash mob video I have ever seen and a really good way to promote the re-opening of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

Diana Boyer’s sketchbooks

Diana Boyers sketchbooks 2Diana Boyer kept sketchbooks recording everyday life around the farm on Bobbara Creek, in the Binalong district of southern New South Wales. The National Museum of Australia now houses some of them.

Apparently she carried pencils, ink, brushes and watercolours everywhere so she could record what she saw on the spot. Trained as a botanist in Argentina Diana Boyer’s observed the property’s changing landscape, native plants and local animals, so that her sketchbooks reveal the how climate change impacted on the environment.

Mystery how a photograph fell through a rift in time

I am very concerned as it appears that via some sort of strange rift in the fabric of time a desperate struggling artist used one of Tadao Cern photographs as a source image for his ‘self Portrait’. I believe the artist’s name is Vincent … It is a strange story indeed …

Tadao Cern is the Lithuanian architect and photographer who produced this clever piece and the curious thing is that he had another strange encounter with a woman called Mona Lisa.
