Still Life - Scott Garner

Gear  |  Projects
Wrote Garner on his website: "Still Life is an interactive gallery piece that takes traditional still life painting into the fourth dimension with a motion-sensitive frame on a rotating mount. Years ago I had the idea of a still life painting that wasn't so still, but could never quite wrap my head around how to build it. After various experiments and explorations, I settled on Unity 3D as the ideal tool to make it happen.
On the hardware side is a custom-framed television connected to a rotating mount. Attached to the back of the television is a spatial sensor. On the software side is a simple C application to communicate with the sensor and feed the data to a Unity 3D scene
The scene itself consists of a camera tied to the sensor data with all lights and objects parented to it so they rotate in unison."

Liberty Middle School's broadcasting team has created this video. It was entirely shot on iPads and mixed with music by Sigur Rós.
“As people were walking out of the school, it was clear that it was the best vibe in the school that had been there all year,” said broadcasting teacher Daniel Whitt. “Everyone was high fiving. People were smiling at each other. People were saying, ‘Hey man loved your sign.’”

Beautiful Landscape Sculptures by British artist Kyle Kirkpatrick.
"My practice is primarily concerned with the notion of the imagined landscape. I present man-made objects and natural materials simultaneously to form carefully and meticulously composed installation works. I capitalize on intrigue taking objects out of context reinventing their use, pushing the viewer to see beyond what I present before them, a glass could be interpreted as a lake or a metal bracket a cliff."

These Crocheted Spock Ears by Shove Mink of Croshame. Awesome! She even included a pattern which she estimates will take half hour to produce. She writes:
"Well, Christmas has come and gone and you’ve already gotten all the fancy stun guns and tricorders and communicators your heart could desire, so why not try out some of that fabulous Star Trek fashion sense with my pattern for crocheted Spock Ears? These little cuties will show off your nerdly Trekkie fanboy/girl status while also keeping your ears toasty warm! It’s a really quick little project that works up in under a half hour."

Jeff Harris: 4,748 Self-Portraits and Counting Over 13 Years

Gear  |  Projects
"Jeff Harris began a project in which he used his trusty Olympic Stylus 35mm film camera (he’s since gone through six) to take a self-portrait each day and then posted the results on his website. The project, which began long before the widespread popularity of blogging, Facebook and Flickr, allowed viewers to follow one photographer along on his adventures. “I didn’t want 365 images of me sitting on the couch each day,” says Harris. “There could have been that tendency, especially during the cold dark winter months to stay inside all the time, but this project inspired me to get out there and seek out interesting things.”  This year, Harris embarks on year fourteen of what has turned out to be an epic, inspired and ever-evolving art project that documents a life well lived....
