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


• On Colossal, some amazing Land Art by Cornelia Konrads. I love the ethereal and weightless look of these pieces, like the influence of faerie land.

• Here’s a nice tutorial on how to make a fun lampshade out of up-cycled doilies and a large balloon.

Dug North makes charming wooden automata: check them out. From his artist’s statement: “Sometimes, it seems as though the things in our lives, demand more from us than they give in return.”

• I liked this quick tutorial on nail art – that’s art made of nails and string, by the way, not painting fingernails. In this case some cool house numbers.

• If you’ve followed my other Beady Eyed Craftster posts you’ll know I’m a fan of origami; and here’s some more great examples from Dinh Truong Giang. Really clever work, full of emotion.

• Here’s a really original idea: Matt Richardson has built a camera that produces descriptions rather than pictures. So instead of a picture of a run down building you get a print out that reads “This is a faded picture of a dilapidated building. It seems to be run-down and in need of repairs.” How does it know? The miracle of distributed Human Intelligence Tasks, i.e. it asks people on the internet.
