Peter Callesen :: Paper View

I don't understand the first thing about his process, but the end result will make your eyes brats (because it's spoiling them). About his paper-cut work, he says:

"I find the materialization of a flat piece of paper into a 3D form as an almost magic process—or maybe one could call it obvious magic, because the process is obvious and the figures still stick to their origin, without the possibility of escaping. In that sense there is also an aspect of something tragic in most of the cuts."

There is a lot worth looking at on his site.
Again, credit geekologie for the discovery.

Scott Hansen: The 1971 progression

I'm not sure if I have posted him yet. I do know that Breck and I had fun scoping out his photo blog (be sure and check it out, I a linked it at the bottom.) He's an extremely well rounded artist. His illustrations, design work, layout/compositions, and photography are all staggering. He also makes some impressive music, which you can hear while on his site. (Controls are in the bottom left if you want to change tracks.) I'm not sure if I can credit him for his unique and memorable flash portfolio site, but non-the less it deserves mentioning its extremely well done, especially in the aspects of programming and dynamically loading information.

This cats from San Francisco, so maybe Spencer or Breck can go to one of his art/music shows sometime and get the real scoop.

Digital Drawing and Physics

That last drawing/music post reminded me of this.
I found this concept fascinating.
