Best Of The Rest: Turning People Into Watermelons, Kaleidoscopic Faces, And Lou Reed's Adaptation Of "The Raven"

The week in creativity is as hypnotizing as ever...
April 4, 2014, 10:30pm

This week we looked into an artist who built a perfect 3D avatar of herself, imagined a future where all concerts will feature holograms, and made a documentary on fashion lab, Studio XO, that built a flying dress for Lady Gaga (as well as other next-level garb). For all the juicy creativity we didn't get to, here's the best of the rest…

This week we…

…Wished that there was an app to make these kaleidoscopic faces. [Faith Is Torment]


…Became obsessed with this fluid simulation of Turing patterns. [Cake23]

…Wanted to takea bite out of these Rothko-themed food plates. [This Isn't Happiness]

…Imagined how uncomfortable these Flinestones Furniture pieces made from ancienct lava would feel to sit on. [Web Urbanist]

…Thought about how nice our Pinot collection (as if we had one…) would look in this LED wine cellar. [Design Milk]

…Shuttered at the illustrations by Lorenzo Mattotti in Lou Reed's adapation of Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven. So unsettling. [Brain Pickings]

…Felt like we were in a Wes Anderson movie as we grooved to these Spotify playlists made by his music supervisor. [Brooklyn Vegan]

…Were blown away by these photos of sunsets refracted through shattered mirrors (are these bad luck?). [This Is Colossal]

…Imagined cuddling our own stuffed animals made from vintage textiles. [Ignant]

…Noticed the cover art for Miles Davis' re-issued Miles at the Fillmore—Miles Davis 1970: The Bootleg Series Vol. 3, which features the photography of Martin Klimas, whose explosive photos we've gawked over in the past.

…We were spellbound by these photos of ghostly women in gorgeous settings. [My Modern Met]

…Were convinced that this artist actually turned a human into a watermelon. [FastCoCreate]
