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

This week: paper clouds, cap­tured bubbles, mirrored mod­els, sliced time, love and an embroidered plan­et.





• First up: clouds – geodes­ic paper clouds. This install­a­tion by artist Tomás Saraceno con­sists of hun­dreds of paper­craft dodeca­hed­rons sus­pen­ded and  assembled into clouds. Really cool look­ing. [Via Colossal]

• Staying light­er than air: bubbles. We’ve fea­tured bubble pho­to­graphy before. but these examples from pho­to­graph­er Tom Falconer are par­tic­u­larly stun­ning. [Via Make]

• Also floaty – this intric­ate mod­el temple by sculptor Takahiro Iwasaki includes its own mir­ror image, as if in a reflect­ing pool. It’s a clev­er idea, and the res­ult is impress­ive. [Via DesignBoom]

• Real water now: these videos and images from artist Xárene Eskandar slice and reas­semble hours of foot­age across a single frame, res­ult­ing in videos that com­press a day into minutes. It’s not easy to describe, but you should check out the videos – the effect is very inter­est­ing. [Via Fast Co.]

• Valentine’s day approaches, so Design Milk has a timely round up of some cool and crafty Valentines cards from across the inter­nets – there are some really nice designs in there.

• And finally: embroidered Jupiter – check out this chain-stitched Jovian sky­scape from stitch­er “pardalote”. Nice work, but I’m a bit dis­ap­poin­ted it’s not actu­al size! [Via Craft]
