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

Dali was no fan of cleavage.

Chair embedded with hundreds of plastic eyeballs

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”?

Bored on your commute to work? Then try out this rather cool game Man-eater, by Daniel Disselkoen, who explains:

For four years, each day I took the same tram to art academy. Why would you then look out the window with curiosity when there is no reason to expect anything new. I decided to change the daily journey for my fellow passengers and myself. I wouldn’t move the tramway track, but maybe I could add something. Make something so that what already exists would look very different now.

Man-eater is part of my graduation project Remake Reality for the Royal Academy of Art, The Netherlands.

Check out more of Daniel’s work here. And if you can come up with any similar game ideas, do let us know.

DIY restoration on 200-year-old masterpiece goes terribly wrong

An elderly woman (who goes unnamed) with “good intentions” decided a 19th-century Spanish fresco on a church titled “Ecce Homo” by Elias Garcia Martinez needed a lil’ facelift.

“The restoration work was completed without permission” writes The Telegraph.

Employees at the Centro went to check on the mural at the church of Santuario de Misericodia only to find it drastically altered.

What we are left with is something that now resembles André the Giant.
 

 
With thanks to Seán Sansom!
