Five Must See Water Infographics!

Giving those who have nothing the opportunity to improve their lives is something that I find very close to my heart. I think one of the best ways to make a global impact is to help improve upon clean water infrastructure. Half of all illness in Africa is due to unsanitary water. Diarrhea  is the number one killer of children in the world. [...]

Pumpkin Carving Done Right

Tis’ that time of year again, when pumpkins fall from the sky and land perfectly carved on the front stoops of all the good little men and women (and eggs for the baddies).

10 Beautiful Fractals

Fractals are natures way of showing us incompetent non-mathies that math is freakin’ sweet. From sunflowers to snails to those fossilized spiral shell things, fractals are everywhere, which is in part why they can have such a profound effect on the senses. If you look at a fractal long enough you will get lost in it, partly because it turns out the brain is damn good [...]

Tape Spider Web for the Spider Within

So, you’re an art student and due to a shipping error you receive over 100 pounds of shipping tape. What do you do with that tape? Well, it should be obvious, build a huge shipping tape spider web!

Gum Art – Sculpting with Bubble Gum
Gum Art – Sculpting with Bubble Gum

The Italian sculpture Maurizio Savini has been best known in recent years for his skillful usage of bubble gum, used to create these marvelous bubble gum sculptures. I think this quote about sums up his passion: The sensual act of chewing, the voluptuous warmth of rebelling saliva, the artificial and secretly aseptic fragrance which spreads from the mouth as a promise and [...]

Japanese Sharpie Mural, Wow
Japanese Sharpie Mural, Wow

I’m not sure how this is the first time I have seen this piece of truly amazing pop art, but here it is, the Nobumasa masterpiece. These shots are from 2006 (hence my surprise at not having seen it until now) so hopefully they are new to you. Nobumasa worked with Space Force, Japan, to create this sharpie mural. Basically, guest artists were given free [...]

Drawings vs LSD, It’s Like a Graph but Better!
Drawings vs LSD, It’s Like a Graph but Better!

These drawings were done as part of a CIA experiment aimed at determining the effects of LSD on the human body. The drawings are incredibly fascinating, particularly due to the progression of style that occurs throughout the experiment.  They administered 100ul of LSD to the artist and gave the artist free access to an activity box full of crayons. His subject was [...]
