Video: Hieronymus Bosch's The Garden of Earthly Delights is one of the most famous paintings in history. The centre panel of the triptych showcases a bunch of naked people enjoying themselves in the most hedonistic ways possible at the time (or I guess, any time). Studio Smack updated the painting a bit with a modern spin and added a whole lot of other kind of weirdness — cloud cows, tentacle towers, undulating sacs of human faces, a spider made of human legs doing the can-can and giant headless chickens showing signs of leprosy.


The men and women who came up with the 88 officially-recognised constellations definitely had richer imaginations than I do. I don't see animals, dragons and centaurs when I look at the night sky, and I'm generally OK with that. Still, when I came across this new celestial map, I got a small taste of the wonder the ancient Greeks must have felt gazing at the stars.


Video: Instead of sticking his camera's lens in the eyepiece of a powerful telescope peering into the heavens, filmmaker Thomas Vanz captured this stunning footage of what looks like a giant star going all supernova by actually pointing his camera at a glass aquarium filled with colourful inks and water.


In a world first, Geoscience Australia has painted an Indigenous artwork on its satellite antenna as part of a major upgrade – making the Alice Springs antenna unique in more ways than one.

The upgraded Alice Springs antenna was commissioned today in a ceremony highlighting both the antenna's key role in the United States Landsat program, and the artwork painted on its surface that recognises the Arrernte people as traditional custodians of the land.


Video: Filip Sterckx's Gallery Invasion is a clever, kooky and totally adorable art show that brings art works to life through projection mapping. It's like those Night at the Museum movies but with drawings deciding to jump out of their canvas and play rough with each other all over the gallery instead of museum exhibits messing with Ben Stiller for some reason. But it's a lot of fun to see the artwork appear self-aware and interact with its surroundings.
