Walking Inside This Crystal Universe Is Like Wandering The Universe

I want to step inside the Crystal Universe installation by TeamLab and just never leave. It’s an immersive art exhibit that’s been around various museums and galleries already and it’s currently in Tokyo (which means I probably won’t get a chance to step in just yet but it’s OK, after watching this video, it’s all I can see when I close my eyes).


Artist Creates Classic VHS Covers For Modern Movies

Watch An Artist Create A Renaissance-Style Portrait With Just String

Hamsters Become Talented Self-Portrait Artists While Running On This Wheel

As far as pets go, hamsters rate somewhere just above goldfish when it comes to entertainment value. But watching them run for hours inside a tiny plastic wheel is far more satisfying when their miniature treadmills are part of a larger contraption that sketches hamster self-portraits at the same time. Someone put this rodent in a gallery.

Sound Art Shows You What Musical Notes Actually Look Like

Sound is something of an ephemeral phenomenon, existing in the moment that vibrations travel through the air.Those vibrations also exhibit distinct patterns, depending on frequency, which can be visualised by scattering a fine dust over a vibrating plate. This was the inspiration for Resonantia, an album whose catalogue features photographs that capture those distinctive patterns for all 12 musical notes.
