The Beady Eyed Craftster is our occa­sional round-up of shiny (mostly) art and craft related links from across the inter­nets.











• This University of California: Santa Cruz exhibit of Computational Origami looks super interesting. Computational origami uses mathematics and computer modelling to assist origami designers: real art and science in harmony stuff.

• Also combining art and science, this Kinetic Art show (part 1, part 2) described at We Make Money Not Art has some really fascinating machines that do make art. I particularly like Paul the drawing robot.

• YouTube ‘How-to’ time: Craftzine shows us how to make a intricate paper mask. I’ve always been a bit of a fan of masks, but I’m no expert on making them, so I’m collecting info like this.

• Making or binding a sketchbook or journal is also something I’ve been thinking about for a while, so I read this tutorial with interest – looks pretty good doesn’t it? I might have to try something similar.

• Is this the smallest letterpress machine in the world? No idea, but it’s a neat bit of work.

• Non craft link of the week: Lego Science! This Wired article has a set of cool Lego models of science-y things: space shuttles, DNA, a kidney. Worth a look if you’re a fan of blocks.

As ever, if you’ve got links, share ‘em in the comments.
