How Did Big Thinkers Manage Their Time RJ Andrews Visualization 9

Benjamin Franklin’s famous formula for success had a lot to do with his schedule: “Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.” He even wrote a book called Early Rising: A Natural, Social, and Religious Duty. Others have said that “the early bird gets the worm,” while an old German proverb states “Morgenstund hat Gold im Mund” – the early morning has gold in its mouth. Ok, so most people think getting up early is important, but just how much does our entire daily schedule factor into our success? [Read more...]

You’ve seen tiny planets all over the internet (you might have even made one with Google Photosphere), but you haven’t seen one in motion before. That’s because of one problem in creating these little worlds: you need to see in all directions at once. Happily, German photo journalist Jonas Ginter recently employed the smart but obvious solution: use multiple cameras and stitch the resulting videos together. His resulting test video is simply awesome, featuring a small planet below the wheels of his bicycle, car and feet, slowly rolling away as the distorted landscape passes by. [Read more...]

Gerald Bear Unconventional Heroes 1

If Marty McFly tried speeding back to the future in an old Fiat 500 instead of a DeLorean, would he even make it to 88.8 miles per hour? It’s questionable. Graphic Designer/Illustrator Gerald Bear’s great new series, Unconventional Heroes, imagines a world where the cars in our favorite cult films and television are a lot less super… and far, far smaller.

Hiki Komori photographs 9

Just a glance at Hiki Komori’s exquisite double exposure portraits, and I can’t help but wonder what is going on inside each subject’s mind. Komori’s images seamlessly merge the naked branches of trees in winter or the stark iron architecture of industrial sites into the faces of each individual. The resulting images have a somber, introspective appearance, as if the thoughts of each person have been made visible. [Read more...]

Anti Rob Ford Campain Posters 1

Toronto has some fascinating new mayoral candidates, and they’re promising to “just smoke pot as mayor, not crack” and never get caught urinating in public. “Wait,” you say, “aren’t those two things incumbent mayor Rob Ford has allegedly done while in office?” Yes, yes they are.

If the Movie ‘Labyrinth’ had an Affair with M.C. Escher, This Would be the Baby

Mathew Borrett Rooms 1

Artist Mathew Borrett spent his childhood building forts out of hay in an ancient barn, but when his allergies got the best of him, he’d go inside to build elaborate things out of Lego. When he built something he especially liked, he’d draw instructions on graph paper detailing how to build it again. That sounds about right for the child that would later draw these magnificently complex labyrinths of rooms. [Read more...]
