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)
