It has been a bit, what with the holidays and all, but I am slowly getting back to being regular with the blogging. Mostly I’ve found some really cool videos that I hope I can get up here. Enjoy, and send me what you find on line.
First up is eye candy from the 365 Project. I’ve actually been to this spot – during the day, but it is gorgeous at sunset.
Also from 365 Project are their theme winning photographs for the year. The math person in me loves this geometry winner.
From Cool Hunting comes a look at a paper artist, Irving Harper. I love the texture that he is able to create.
Here is a pretty amazing video of driving in Norway along the Atlantic Coast. How would you like the job of building this road?? The road is built on several small islands and reefs, and is crossed by eight bridges, several roads and overpasses. This road is a view of the open sea, which is rare on the roads along the Norwegian coast. You can see fjords and mountains near the road. The spectacular road quickly became a tourist attraction, insofar precautions should be displayed while driving, because of the attendance of the road by the local population and visitors.
This is reminiscent of the art of Andy Goldsworthy, but even more fleeting. This is the balancing art of Michael Grab, from NPR.
Ice palaces in Harbin, China – really gorgeous…..and oh, so cold!
I LOVE Chris Jordan, and he has some new work available on his website. He uses common objects to depict waste of one type or another to tell a story. He is amazing. Be sure to zoom in on each picture.
School Dropouts…..done in blocks
New video from recreational mathematician Vi Hart – whom I absolutely love – use her videos in college algebra a lot! Here’s a look at fractals….
Speaking of math, I thought this was pretty cool: (If you know the source, please let me know….)
And finally, one of my favorite math videos on how easy it is to misunderstand some of the basics of mathematics……
Have a great week!
