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]
