For the past couple of months, Amit Gupta has been playing around with taking moving self-portraits with a camera mounted on a drone. Here’s an early effort. This past weekend, Amit’s efforts crossed over into the realm of art. This is beautiful:

In the comments at Vimeo, Alex Dao dubbed this type of photograph a “dronie”. We’ll see if that catches on.

I thought it was going to be drones taking pictures of themselves. I’m not sure whether I’m disappointed or not.

Watch this liquid boil and freeze at the same time! It’s not magic, these folks just dropped the pressure and temperature to the perfect place to hit the substance’s triple point, that magical nexus on the phase diagram where solid, liquid, and vapor coexist.

The liquid above is almost certainly not pure water (those crystals look a little funny), but here’s water’s phase diagram, complete with triple point and its various ice phases. Yes, even that one.

This awesome music video for A-Trak & Tommy Trash’s song ‘Tuna Melt‘ follows an incredibly elaborate and playful Rube Goldberg machine set up throughout nearly every room of the beautiful Ohage House in St. Paul, MN. Dominoes (and pieces of scrummy toast) fall, paper airplanes and feathers fly and there’s even a brief underwater sequence, all culminating in a simple yet mouthwatering illustration of the song’s title. The Rube Goldberg device was set up by Tim Fort and the video directed by Ryan Staake.

Even if the closest you’ve ever gotten to a potter’s wheel is watching the movie Ghost, you’ve got a general idea of how the device works. A wet lump of clay is placed on the surface of a spinning wheel and molded using the artists hands and tools. But today we’ve learned that the potter’s wheel itself can be used to create awesomely hypnotic visual art.

In this mesmerizing video, entitled Dance on the Circle, Mikhail Sadovnikov creates a seemingly endless series of kaleidoscopic patterns in the “wet clay sludge (called slip)” on an empty potter’s wheel.

While it’s true that a bunch of ants can ruin a picnic or turn a camping trip into a stinging nightmare, they’re also amazing. The New York Times posted this fascinating video from the Georgia Institute of Technology about researchers studying how groups of fire ants can flow together like a liquid or band together in a solid, rubbery mass. Both of these awesome behaviors may facilitate the development of self-assembling robots and self-healing materials.

For more information about astonishing ant physics, head over to the New York Times.

You were not born with the ability to fly, cure disease or communicate at long distances, but you were born in a society that endows you with these capacities. These capacities are the result of information that has been generated by humans and that humans have been able to embed in tangible and digital objects. This information is all around you. It is the way in which the atoms in an airplane are arranged or the way in which your cell-phone whispers dance instructions to electromagnetic waves. Pantheon is a project celebrating the cultural information that endows our species with these fantastic capacities. To celebrate our global cultural heritage we are compiling, analyzing and visualizing datasets that can help us understand the process of global cultural development.

this video is entitled “tumblr feminists” and i prepared myself to get angry before watching it but damn if it isn’t spot on

"What they are really saying is that they hate women. They hate women with opinions who are honest and angry."

I thought this was gonna be cissexist and then it wasnt

Benjamin Grosser Computers Watching Movies (2001: A Space Odyssey) 2013 computationally-produced HD video with stereo audio Computers Watching Movies shows what a computational system sees when it watches the same films that we do. The work illustrates this vision as a series of temporal sketches, where the sketching process is presented in synchronized time with the audio from the original clip. Viewers are provoked to ask how computer vision differs from their own human vision, and what that difference reveals about our culturally-developed ways of looking. Why do we watch what we watch when we watch it? Will a system without our sense of narrative or historical patterns of vision watch the same things? Computers Watching Movies was computationally produced using software written by the artist. This software uses computer vision algorithms and artificial intelligence routines to give the system some degree of agency, allowing it to decide what it watches and what it does not. Six well-known clips from popular films are used in the work, enabling many viewers to draw upon their own visual memory of a scene when they watch it. The scenes are from the following movies: 2001: A Space Odyssey, American Beauty, Inception, Taxi Driver, The Matrix, and Annie Hall. http://ift.tt/1cgM6Ms Computers Watching Movies (2001: A Space Odyssey) benjamin grosser
