These ads take ‘viral’ marketing to a whole new level: To promote the new Steven Soderbergh movie ‘Contagion,’ a group of microbiologists and immunologists were tapped to create a billboard out of bacteria.
The best part about winning computer solitaire is the flurry of cards that fills the screen after making the final move. Lars Marcus Vedeler and Theo Tveteras of experimental design team skrekkogle have now translated this iconic moment into a physical 3D sculpture of the jumping cards.
It’s not just a funny title — ‘The Worst Movie EVER’ might actually be the worst movie ever. After opening in one theater in Los Angeles, the movie grossed $11, making it the lowest grossing film of all time.
It’s bad enough having to swat away a single bug, but an entire swarm? If you’re anywhere near the Missouri River that’s just something you might have to contend with – these “bugnadoes” form in areas with high volumes of water, particularly after flooding has occurred.
How would you react if a painting suddenly came to life? Alexa Meade‘s painted people look like works of art but move like humans — making for an eerie sight.
Whereas most artists would just paint their subjects on a canvas, Meade actually turns her subjects INTO the canvas. She creates life-size installations that are shockingly exact in their similarity to actual acrylic paintings. Upon first glance it’s almost impossible to tell that there are real people under all that paint.
Artist Curtis Kilhorn is making it his mission to restore beauty to dead trees in the Colorado wilderness. Kilhorn paints their remains in a rainbow of bright colors, turning a dried-up tree skeleton into a technicolor conversation piece, and will install his creations in customers’ backyards. He says the intention of the installations is to remind people “of the splendor of the world around us” but we think it’s a righteous way to recycle. Mother Nature would be proud.
Remember those connect-the-dot pictures from your childhood? Multiply that by about 6,000 and you get artist Thomas Pavitte‘s incredible new project that just might be the single most complex connect-the-dots image ever. Not only did he design the illustration, he connected the 6,293 dots himself. It took Pavitte nine hours to connect them all, revealing a legendary masterpiece as you’ve never seen it before.
Depending on their surroundings, some trees grow abnormally, with their trunk and branches conforming to nearby debris or blockages.
Former jeweler Peter “Pook” Cook has perfected a process to replicate this himself and actually “sculpt” growing trees into specific formations. Cook began doing this in the late 80s, inspired by fig trees growing on a cliff face. It took him years to refine the method, but the Australian now turns trees into unnatural but indeniably cool shapes, including eerie, human-like figures.
While scientists have yet to perfect artificial intelligence, they’ve at least perfected artificial beer preference. When it comes to brewskies, this thirsty robot named DARwIn-OP know what it likes — the folks who built him over at Trossen Robotics actually programmed him to have a drink of choice. Given the option, the little guy will ignore a can of Bud Light and go for a cold Tecate every time.
It could have something to do with the colors of their respective cans, but we like to think DARwIn’s just got fond memories of a robo-bender in Mexico.
