I came across this lovely DIY by Abeautifulmess and couldn’t resist sharing with you all.

Created by printing a image of a moon onto transparency film sheet and projecting onto her desired wall, the girls over at Abeautifulmess were able to determine scale and proportion as well as the design of the moon. After outlining the area with gold craft paint and filling the solid space VOILA and great wall decal design where the options are infinite!

The spotted handfish (Brachionichthys hirsutus), an amazing creature that walks the ocean floor, is a rare Australian fish from the family Brachionichthyidae. It is classified as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List 2002. is the first Australian marine species to be threatened with extinction.

The greatest threats to the handfish appear to be siltation and invasive species. The Derwent Estuary where the fish lives is highly urbanised and industrialised, and a range of marine pests have been introduced through shipping.  One key pest is the Northern Pacific Seastar (Asterias amurensis), a particularly large and voracious predator that is now abundant in the estuary. Studies by CSIRO show that the seastars eat the stalked ascidians that the handfish use to attach their eggs.

Like I always say, a fish with a hand is better than two in the bush

An expensive, ornate vase can be as much of a centrepiece as the flowers that are in it. These floating vases designed by the Japanese group oodesign take things in the opposite direction by making them look like water ripples.

Shaped like ripples in water, the floating vases by Oodesign
 from japan allow users to place flowers into a PET formed resin void – floating nonchalantly on the water. fill your favorite container or transparent bowl or a glass with water and float the vase according to the movement of the air, the plants change their position within the container.

Erik SöderbergFractal Experience”

In early 2011 I was exploring the relations of geometry, nature and the human being in a series of 25 pictures that I called ”Fractal Experience”. This is part two - continuing the exploration of geometric shapes, patterns, and fractals with an added element: space-time. This time I’ve worked in 3D and produced a set of animated looping gif’s.
I’ve limited each animation to at most 48 frames, most are around 10-15 frames - to keep the file size small and to maximize the creativity with in these frames.

Binairy Talk

Installation by Niklas Ißelburg and Jakob Kilian uses controlled smoke to relay a binary message from one computer to another - video embedded below:

The interactive installation “Binairy Talk” uses smoke signs to transmit digital data. Air serves as the communication medium for binary code, as a carrier of data and information across a distance. The hidden processes of the digital world are transfered into the analog world whereby the apparent immateriality and infallibility of the computer language is overcome.
