The 2013 Kobe Biennale featured an Art Container Contest, challenging entrants to build something spectacular within the confines of the standard shipping container.

Telmo Miel Kiddie Art Series 1

If you’ve got a young kid, your refrigerator is probably covered with drawings of bears, butterflies, cars and princesses. Let’s face it though: while the little rascals are filled with imagination, their creations aren’t exactly life-like. I mean, when was the last time you saw a whale with a kinked tail? Dutch muralist/painter duo Telmo Miel (Telmo Pieper and Miel Krutzmann) have recreated a series of drawings by kid’s, retaining their youthfully drawn shape while applying an adult artist’s level of detail. The results are truly weird and sometimes creepy. [Read more...]

Real World Third Person Perspective 1

You’re probably familiar with the 3rd person view in all sorts of video games… even Mario Kart used it. With a viewpoint placed just behind and above the character you’re playing, it gives you a clear understanding of where you are in a virtual space – something a first person view doesn’t always communicate so clearly. Now, two Polish designers have created that unusual perspective in real life – thanks to an Oculus Rift, and two GoPros mounted high on a custom backpack. [Read more...]
