Morning Linkage (Jan 12)


A Her­mann visual from one of the Jere­miah books. Post-apocalyptic moto.

Hacky-sack wheels for a lit­tle moon rover. Too cute.

I shouldn’t like this bike. I really shouldn’t but… all that elec­tric blue and sense­less pro­por­tions. Yippee. Honda 305 Dream.

To make up for that — from the same web­site, the very next entry is this lovely bob­ber based on the Dan­ish mark Nim­bus.

Sci­ence (and Food and Advice)

Finally a GMO food that the food­ies can get behind. Engi­neer­ing bet­ter choco­late. Srlsy.

Good advice at that.

Art, Images, and Design

Funny? Sad? Clever? Visual puns of Brett Weber. The moon’s trou­ble with his gold­fish is both the fun­ni­est and the saddest.

I am com­pletely enam­ored of the idea of “dis­or­der­ing” the struc­ture of paper, using a tat­too gun.

These huge images cre­ated on lay­ered panes of glass are fas­ci­nat­ing but per­haps not in a friendly way. Xia Xiaowan draws with col­ored pen­cil on glass plates that are then lay­ered up in floor racks. The chang­ing per­spec­tive as you walk around the piece lends an even creepier aura to some already pretty dis­turb­ing pieces. (Pos­si­ble NSFW — grotesqueries.)
