Baby’s First Baby toy doll by artist Darren Cullen is—I’m assuming here—some kind of statement about glamorizing teen pregnancies on shows like MTV’s 16 and Pregnant.

If you notice, even the fetus is pregnant!

Of course, America should gut funding for Planned Parenthood…

Below, an image of the back of the box:

Besides the wacky signature Dalinian designs, the takeaway I was left with?

Dali was no fan of cleavage.

There’s something very Ood-ish about Fiona Roberts’ red velvet “Scopophilia” (Greek for “love of looking”) chair embedded with hundreds of plastic eyeballs.

I kind of dig it, it’s interesting, though I’m not necessarily a huge fan of “eyeballed” velvet upholstery. Here’s lookin’ at your backside, kid!

Insectes by French photographer and graphic designer Laurent Seroussi.

From Seroussi‘s bio:

“Laurent Seroussi’s multifaceted imagery brings together his background in both graphic design and moving imagery. His immediate work stretches the imagination with playful visual tricks and postproduction wizardry.”

3D-printed visualizations of Einstürzende Neubauten, Nick Drake and Portishead albums


Einstürzende Neubauten’s ‘Jewels’ visualized in 3D.
 
Flavor Wire hipped me to the research and experimentation studio Realität. Their latest project is called Mircosonic Landscapes which is “An algorithmic exploration of the music we love. Each album_s soundwave proposes a new spatial and unique journey by transforming sound into matter/space: the hidden into something visible.”

According to Flavor Wire:

“Each piece was created with the open-source, three-dimensional data visualization programming language known as Processing, and then printed via a programmable machine that can print in plastic called MakerBot.”
 

Portishead’s ‘Third’ visualized in 3D.
 

Nick Drake’s ‘Pink Moon’ visualized in 3D.

Visit Flavor Wire to see 3D-printed visualizations of Antony and the Johnsons and the composition “Für Alina” by Arvo Pärt. I wonder how an album of music that is much more rhythmic and syncopated than any of these examples, say something where Tony Allen was drumming? A Phillip Glass piece? Bitches Brew? Sea santies? “Rapper’s Delight”?
