The "Pneumatic Sponge Ball Accelerator" is installed at the Tschumi Pavilion in Groningen / The Netherlands. The apparatus contains 1000 black sponge balls, which are sucked through 150m of transparent pneumatic tubes with the power of a normal household vacuum cleaner. Visitors can operate the machine with a touch sensor: They can change the direction of the airflow and watch the balls speed up, slow down and turn around. The balls reach a top speed of about 4m/s.

Sound by Ennio Morricone, "The Big Gundown"
To create this strata-cut animation, I planed down a block of wood one layer at a time, photographing it at each pass. The painstaking process revealed a hidden life and motion in the seemingly static grain of the wood, even as the wood itself was reduced to a mound of sawdust.

Instagram user Mirrorsme creates these whimsical drawings on her bathroom mirror. She writes,
"I bought my last markers in New York, and the sales person just couldn’t understand why I needed all those acrylic markers to draw on mirrors. Later that night, I drew Brooklyn Bridge on my hotel room mirror in Midtown (it was a nice hotel too, with a huuuge mirror… but I decided to remove the mirror art before I left)...Normally, it takes less than 30 min. to draw, but I can really get lost in the process and enjoy it."
