Steam to return to the Salt. An update on the efforts of Cyclone Power Tech to recapture the landspeed record for a steam engine. Quixotic and wonderful.
Ducati has acquired Elizabeth Raab’s Ducati photographs which match several of the iconic Ducatis with the form of a nude woman in an exploration of shape and surfaces. Skip the words and go straight to the gallery. They’re lovely, if a bit trite, and very NSFW.
Undiscovered gem. Trishikh Dasgupta shoots the recreation of his bike Silverblaze. An R‐E Bullet Machismo 500.
Government sponsored space porn. Not quite. Remixes and mash‐ups of NASA footage by folks with a bad case of space lust. Some seriously space cowboy goodness here.
Art, Images, and Design
The inane lyrics of Lady Gaga make a perfectly marvelous Dr. Seuss‐ian nonsense children’s book. With
vintage graphics in black and white with blue.
Today’s if I had one‐shot‐a‐week‐like‐that I’d so happy photograph. The umbrella perfects the image. Max Fomin is somewhere in Spain but writing in Russian.
Olaf Hajek’s Antoinettes. A dark, earthy vision of natural excess. Many other fine things as well.
Animation and Moving Images
Paint, and sound. Add a couple of cameras, and a turn table with a fierce rotation, et viola, a nifty ad campaign for printers. It’s so simple and it’s so stunning.
These are so sweet, and so awesome and so just right. The cut‐out animations for the film of Le Petit Nicolas. (1:57, nice music)
