A house is on display at the All-Russian Exhibit Centre in Moscow that has been meticulously designed to be just like any other typical house except for one small factor—it's upside down. Every item in the house has been placed upside down, and visitors even have to climb a staircase to enter through the front door. Those who enter will find themselves feeling as though they are walking upside down when, in truth, it's the objects in the house that are objects that are breaking the laws of gravity.
Visual artist Dennis Hlynsky uses a digitizing process to visualize the flight path of birds is part of his project, "small brains on mass. Dennis Hlynsky calls this process 'extruded time" and it involves stacking frames in a sequence and adding the darkest pixels together. The mesmerizing result turns something that starts as a rather boring concept into a truly fascinating visualization.
Cuphead is an upcoming run and gun video game created by Studio MDHR with a unique look that emulates cartoon art from the 1930s. The developers say the game is scheduled to release sometime in 2014 initially for the PC and then potentially to consoles after that.
The visuals and audio were painstakingly created with the same techniques of the era, i.e. traditional cel animation (hand drawn & hand inked!), watercolor backgrounds and live jazz recordings. Play as Cuphead or Mugman (single or co-op!) as you traverse the islands to find new challengers, rank up, and eventually compete in the grand tournament. You must become acquainted with the boundless variety of weapons, supers and secrets to stand a chance against all 30+ battles.
We are targeting PC first. Once that is complete we will port to other platforms (Mac/Linux) and hopefully consoles (PS4, Xbox One).
The great Michelangelo was an Italian sculptor, achitect, poet, and painter. And like anybody else, the man had to eat. But when he needed one of his servants to run to the market for a few things, he didn't just write them down like the rest of use. As you can see, the great artist made sure to be clear which items he wanted to be purchased.
All of Michelangelo's works, including this grocery list, are stored at Casa Buonarroti in Florance, Italy.
Crafts Council shows us with this fascinating video that an ordinary ceramic pot can be transformed into a living animation. The people involved were able to bring this project to fruition by setting up the artwork on a computer and then adding it to the pottery with provided specifications.
The star of the 1990 holiday hit, Home Alone, has recently released this video of him eating a slice of delicious pizza. Though it seems very strange, the video is in homage of Andy Warhol's art piece where he simply eats a Burger King Whopper. Given the time of year, one might guess that Culkin's choice of food might also be in tribute to his famed character, Kevin McCallister, whose favorite food was plain cheese pizza.
