Irish graffiti artist Maser has covered his clashing patterns all over an abandoned petrol station in Limerick City somewhere in Ireland as part of a transformative urban art project. Maser titled the installation »No.27 – a nod to Ed Ruscha« – after an American pop art artist who published a collection of photographs titled »Twentysix Gasoline Stations«.
This footage was recorded at the Seekonk Speedway in Seekonk, Massachusetts. This recording plays at real time speed. The clip is processed to extend the moment captured to show trails of where the animal has been / will be. Bird flight patterns visualized in some amazing videos by Dennis Hlynsky.
Sitzmuster des Todes, which typically means »seat patterns of death«, offers an incredible collection of horror designs, that brings you fear, anger and procrastination. It seems to be a global epidemic. Here in germany, there is barely any bus without these weird and horrible looking multi-colored print patterns. You can also visit The Great Pattern Collection, a similar page, but the pictures there do not show the real ugliness.
»Oscillate« is the title of Daniel Sierra’s thesis done at the MFA Computer Art program in the School of Visual Arts in New York City. The project was an attempt »to visualize waveform patterns that evolve from the fundamental sine wave to more complex patterns, creating a mesmerizing audio-visual experience in which sight and sound work in unison.« Full screen mode is recommended.
Looking at the tulip fields can spring a few surprises, particularly the view from above. Flying over the Tulips Fields by Normann Szkop is the fantastic series about natural colors and man-made patterns. These photos were shot in Anna Paulowna, a town in the Netherlands, in the province of North Holland. This brings me to an incredible film project which I had kept around for a while: »Bloemencorso, the annual parade of flowers, takes place in Zundert and features some of the most creative and modern examples of the floral sculpting form you’re likely to see.« Enjoy!
Cross-stitch is sometimes much better than its reputation. Theo Humphries takes typical cross-stitch patterns and pimps them with delicate details. If you’re interested in making your own Crapestry, Humphries explains the process on his website.
Made for the exhibition »Invisible Fields« at Arts Santa Monica in Barcelona, Spain.
In the description of this work and the related theory we read: »20 Hz observes a geo-magnetic storm occurring in the Earth’s upper atmosphere. Working with data collected from the CARISMA radio array and interpreted as audio, we hear tweeting and rumbles caused by incoming solar wind, captured at the frequency of 20 Hertz. Generated directly by the sound, tangible and sculptural forms emerge suggestive of scientific visualisations. As different frequencies interact both visually and aurally, complex patterns emerge to create interference phenomena that probe the limits of our perception.«
