An In-Your-Face Motion Capture Dance Performance Amidst a Flurry of Feathers, Fur, and Particles

by Christopher Jobson

This three minute dance performance was created by Method Studios for this year’s AICP Awards as a way to promote different sponsors. Each sponsor is imagined briefly as a dancing avatar rendered with the help of motion capture, procedural animation and dynamic simulations. The wild costumes seem to draw inspiration from artists like Nick Cave, Wrecking Crew Orchestra, and even Kohei Nawa. To be sure, there’s a lot going on here, but all of it adds up to something pretty amazing, a killer dance performance that merges cutting edge animation techniques. (via Vimeo)

Calligraffiti: Fresh Artistic Perspective on Cairo’s ‘Garbage City’

by Kurt Kohlstedt
[ By WebUrbanist in Art & Street Art & Graffiti. ]

giant mural cairo

On the outskirts of Cairo, Egypt, lies the community of Manshiyat Naser, famous for providing informal trash and recycling services for the city, but also notorious for the mess and smell that go with that role.

‘Calligraffiti’ artist el Seed worked with the ward to develop an incredible mural spanning 50 buildings, aiming to change perceptions and raise awareness about the community.

Marginalized and belittled, the residents are incredibly industrious, sorting out garbage from recyclables by district within the community, literally turning Cairo’s trash into lucrative treasure.

The mural blends aspects of Arabic calligraphy with contemporary graffiti, all while highlighting the architecture of the area. The entire work is only visible from the nearby Mokattam Mountain.

The piece spells out the words of Saint Athanasius of Alexandria, a Coptic bishop from the 3rd Century, who said: “anyone who wants to see the sunlight clearly needs to wipe his eye first.”

“The zaraeeb community welcomed my team and I as if we were family,” said the artist. “It was one of the most amazing human experiences I have ever had. they are generous, honest and strong people. They have been given the name of Zabaleen (the Garbage People), but this is not how they call themselves. They don’t live in the garbage but from the garbage; and not their garbage, but the garbage of the whole city. they are the ones who clean the city of Cairo.”

This is really important to remember, especially when cowardly politicians who are using these horrific acts to further their own xenophobic and nativist goals spew their hate.

I read in the paper that my brothers are being thrown from rooftops blindfolded with their hands tied behind their backs for violating sharia law. I heard the crowds stone these fallen men if they move after they hit the ground. I heard it’s in the name of God. I heard my pastor speak for God too, quoting scripture from his book. Words like abomination popped off my skin like hot grease as he went on to describe a lake of fire that God wanted me in. I heard on the news that the aftermath of a hate crime left piles of bodies on a dance floor this month. I heard the gunman feigned dead among all the people he killed. I heard the news say he was one of us. I was six years old when I heard my dad call our transgender waitress a faggot as he dragged me out a neighborhood diner saying we wouldn’t be served because she was dirty. That was the last afternoon I saw my father and the first time I heard that word, I think, although it wouldn’t shock me if it wasn’t. Many hate us and wish we didn’t exist. Many are annoyed by our wanting to be married like everyone else or use the correct restroom like everyone else. Many don’t see anything wrong with passing down the same old values that send thousands of kids into suicidal depression each year. So we say pride and we express love for who and what we are. Because who else will in earnest? I daydream on the idea that maybe all this barbarism and all these transgressions against ourselves is an equal and opposite reaction to something better happening in this world, some great swelling wave of openness and wakefulness out here. Reality by comparison looks grey, as in neither black nor white but also bleak. We are all God’s children, I heard. I left my siblings out of it and spoke with my maker directly and I think he sounds a lot like myself. If I being myself were more awesome at being detached from my own story in a way I being myself never could be. I wanna know what others hear, I’m scared to know but I wanna know what everyone hears when they talk to God. Do the insane hear the voice distorted? Do the indoctrinated hear another voice entirely?

High Tech DIY Decor: 15 3D-Printed Home Accessories

[ By SA Rogers in Design & Furniture & Decor. ]

3D Printed Home Decor

Take DIY home decor to a whole new level with 3D printing, whether you’re just purchasing a pre-printed geometric aquarium ornament or custom-designing an object you just can’t find anywhere else. This small-scale, low-impact manufacturing model makes it easy to produce all sorts of complex items, from lampshades and mini greenhouses to replacement parts for broken objects. Print them yourself if you can, or just browse the thousands of ‘digitally hand-crafted’ 3D-printed products on sites like Shapeways.

Aquarium Flora

‘Waterscapes’ by Haruka Misawa is a series of 3d printed objects inspired by aquatic plant life, intended for use in aquariums for a minimalist look that’s still fun and functional for fish. In addition to sculptural creations mimicking coral, the objects include bubbles of air that fit within the aquariums to make surface-growing aquatic plants the visual centerpiece.

Cityscape Light Bulbs

Cityscapes sprout from the tips of LED light bulbs in the ‘Huddle’ series by designer David Graas, available for purchase at Layers. “Just like the penguins in the Antarctic huddle to survive the extreme cold during the winter time also people have taken on huddling as a strategy for survival. The mega city, despite its many problems, seems to be our destined habitat now that resources are becoming scarce. It also holds the key to a sustainable future with its concentration of information, technology and talent.”

A slightly curved, connected collection of twelve universal PET bottle screw tops turns a dozen used plastic bottles into a collective vase, each bottle holding one or two stems of flowers and greenery. You can use bottles of various colors and sizes, as long as the three center bottles supporting the weight of the collective vase are the same size.

Tardigrade Bottle Opener

Anyone who already knows what a tardigrade (aka ‘water bear’) is will love this bottle opener, and the rest just need to watch this video about the strangest creature to ever be sent to outer space. Available in a variety of steel colors at Shapeways, it’s definitely an unusual item to have in your house.

A Malaysian Apartment That Focuses on Natural Materials

by Caroline Williamson

A Malaysian Apartment That Focuses on Natural Materials

Nu Infinity designed this apartment in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for a photographer and frequent traveler with a focus on natural, high quality materials, like solid wood, plants, and real stones. The concept was to make it feel like a sanctuary in the sky after returning from a trip.



Dark mirrors on one side of the dining room reflect the plant wall giving the illusion that the dining room is outside surrounded by nature.



Upon entering the unit from it’s private elevator, you’re greeted with a dark wooden ceiling, a rough stone wall, and a vertical plant wall that act as a division between the living room and dining room.









The master bedroom is long and narrow with a large, curved wall of windows at one end overlooking the city.


They incorporated more vertical plant walls in the bedroom which are interspersed between panels of wood.

Las creativas manualidades de fieltro de Hine Mizushima

by Jesús Arjona Montalvo

Hine Mizushima

Cuando se piensa en los animales de peluche hechos de textiles, los mejores candidatos probablemente incluirían osos de peluche o conejitos rosas. Tal vez en la galería que os dejamos más abajo, los calamares, cigarras, y las babosas de mar sean lo más bonito. Sin embargo, la artista con sede en Vancouver, Hine Mizushima ha elegido estas criaturas inusuales como sus juguetes hechos a mano.

Hine Mizushima 7

Hine Mizushima nació y se crió en Japón, se especializó en la pintura tradicional japonesa antes de trabajar como diseñadora e ilustradora en Tokio. Más tarde se trasladó a Roma, luego a París, y luego a Nueva York. Hace diez años que salió de Nueva York para Vancouver, Canadá, donde vive con su familia. En la actualidad es también una artesana, needlefelter, hace miniaturas artistticas collage, y vídeos stop-motion de animación con marionetas.

Ella se ha encargado de una serie de vídeos comerciales, y sus ilustraciones son principalmente con recortes de papel y luego las digitaliza. Sus manualidades de fieltro se han expuesto en galerías de los EE.UU. y Japón, y están publicadas en libros y revistas, y puesto en marcha para el evento ‘Adobe Creative Cloud’ en Nueva York. También hizo collages en miniatura para varios libros en Japón. Después de la galería con sus manualidades, os dejamos donde puedes ver más sobre su trabajo.

sansa stark,Game of Thrones,spoilers,letter

Hmm... whoever could Sansa be writing to at the end of Game of Thrones' Season 6 Episode 7? We've got our guesses and you probably do, too. If you want answers - scroll down. If not - back out now. Because SPOILERS, obviously.

Shout out to HBO and the sleuths over at r/gameofthrones for these screen shots.

"In the 1890s, when Freud was in the dawn of his career, he was struck by how many of his female..."

““In the 1890s, when Freud was in the dawn of his career, he was struck by how many of his female patients were revealing childhood [sexual] victimization to him. Freud concluded that child sexual abuse was one of the major causes of emotional disturbances in adult women and wrote a brilliant and humane paper called “The Aetiology of Hysteria.” However, rather than receiving acclaim from his colleagues for his ground-breaking insights, Freud met with scorn. He was ridiculed for believing that men of excellent reputation (most of his patients came from upstanding homes) could be perpetrators of incest.
Within a few years, Freud buckled under this heavy pressure and recanted his conclusions. In their place he proposed the “Oedipus complex,” which became the foundation of modern psychology… Freud used this construct to conclude that the episodes of abuse his clients had revealed to him had never taken place; they were simply fantasies of events the women had wished for… This construct started a hundred-year history in the mental health field of blaming victims for the abuse perpetrated on them and outright discrediting of women’s and children’s reports of mistreatment by men.””
