The Beady Eyed Craftster is our (mostly) weekly round-up of shiny (mostly) art, design, craft and illusÂtraÂtion related links from across the internets.
This week: paper clouds, captured bubbles, mirrored models, sliced time, love and an embroidered planet.
â€˘ First up: clouds â€“ geodesic paper clouds. This installation by artist TomĂˇs Saraceno consists of hundreds of papercraft dodecahedrons suspended andÂ assembled into clouds. Really cool looking. [Via Colossal]
â€˘ Staying lighter than air: bubbles. Weâ€™ve featured bubble photography before. but these examples from photographer Tom Falconer are particularly stunning. [Via Make]
â€˘ Also floaty â€“ this intricate model temple by sculptor Takahiro Iwasaki includes its own mirror image, as if in a reflecting pool. Itâ€™s a clever idea, and the result is impressive. [Via DesignBoom]
â€˘ Real water now: these videos and images from artist XĂˇrene Eskandar slice and reassemble hours of footage across a single frame, resulting in videos that compress a day into minutes. Itâ€™s not easy to describe, but you should check out the videos â€“ the effect is very interesting. [Via Fast Co.]
â€˘ Valentineâ€™s day approaches, so Design Milk has a timely round up of some cool and crafty Valentines cards from across the internets â€“ there are some really nice designs in there.
â€˘ And finally: embroidered Jupiter â€“ check out this chain-stitched Jovian skyscape from stitcher â€śpardaloteâ€ť. Nice work, but Iâ€™m a bit disappointed itâ€™s not actual size! [Via Craft]
