An Original Installation of Colored Silk by Justin Morin

Although Justin Morin lives and works in Paris, this artist has already exhibited in many galleries around the world, from Brussels to San Francisco. It is in Copenhagen that he unveils his new installation “Equilibrum”.closevolume_off

For his latest installation “Equilibrum”, the artist colors silk. The word “Equilibrum” represents here the balance between two opposites, between elements or as a mental or emotional balance.

Besides Being A Pilot, This Man Also Takes Stunning Photos Of Places He Visits Around The World (105 Pics)

If you are sick of lockdown in your house and being forcefully turned into a couch potato, this British pilot, currently based in Hong Kong, will take you on a trip around the world. And although following his father’s footsteps, Lee Mumford indeed knows how to fly a plane and he also can show you the jewels of the planet in an easier, corona-free, and much cheaper way. While working as an airline pilot, he has visited over 40 countries and has seen some of the most magical and picturesque places on Earth. It would be a shame not to share them with others, so he combined his love of flying and photography to provide us with breathtaking photos that range from beautiful landscapes to vivid cityscapes.

50 Real-Life Photos That Look Like Screenshots Of A Video Game Or A Movie Set

From Blade Runner to GTA V, part of what makes blockbuster movies and video games so immersive is the incredible visuals. Even though it’s made up, the scenery looks so real, so palpable, it’s as if you’re almost there. Sometimes, however, you are. If only for a moment.

Our world is so diverse that there are places where you can actually feel like you’re in a different galaxy or even a 3D render. The surroundings, the lights, and a few random coincidences can make it look almost identical to your favorite productions.

50 Times Architects Really Outdid Themselves And People Celebrated Their Works Online

Architecture is meant to fulfill both practical and expressive requirements, and thus it serves both utilitarian and aesthetic purposes. When you look at a structure, you can distinguish these two ends but they cannot be separated, and the relative weight each of them carry can vary widely. Plus, every society has its own, unique relationship to the natural world and its architecture usually reflects that as well, allowing people from other places to learn about their environment, as well as history, ceremonies, artistic sensibility, and many aspects of daily life.

However, architecture is better seen, not described. So, let me introduce you to “the beautiful impossibilities that we want to live in“, a subreddit dedicated to high-quality images of some of the most impressive (concept) buildings out there. This online community already has over 617K members, and the pictures they share are absolutely gorgeous. Continue scrolling and take a look!

I Illustrated 25 More Bad Puns To Brighten Your Day

I am a designer based in San Francisco, and I love to doodle during my spare time. I hear many words that amuse me during the day, not sure why, but they are just too funny. Perhaps it’s a combination of being easily amused and having English as a second language. In any case, it’s a good method to escape our sad pandemic reality and deal with stress.

For example, when my mother mentioned she is doing “intermittent fasting,” an image of a person putting a mitten over their head popped into my mind. Then when I heard “thumb drive,” I saw an actual human thumb driving a car. Same with “Bluetooth” (my daughter was asking why someone came up with this name?) – in my head, I saw an actual blue tooth transmitting Wi-Fi from a mouth.

I usually write down funny words, and when I have some free time, I grab my iPad and quickly draw it. My goal is to create a new drawing every day, and I have been sharing them on my Instagram.

I really enjoyed drawing this, and I hope you’ll find these amusing too! Here are the links to my previous posts if you missed them (III).

My 33 More Cartoons Show How The Covid-19 Pandemic Changed Our Lives

My name is Irina, and I am a designer living in San Francisco. During the day, I work for a tech company, but at night, I always try to work on creative projects. I am originally from St. Petersburg, Russia and I moved to the US when I was 18 years old with my family. After studying graphic design, I was fortunate to work for a variety of tech companies in Silicon Valley, including Facebook, Apple, Yahoo, and Adobe. One of my best-known projects was the design of the Google Android logo, the first open-source logo of its kind. My personal projects include Only in Silicon Valley greeting cards, a collection of fashionable surgical masks, humorous jewelry, and funemployed pins. I was a contestant on ABC’s Reality Show Shark Tank pitching the idea of fashionable surgical masks back in 2009. It’s eerie how masks have now become part of everyday life because of the pandemic.

Since the lockdown started, I’ve been cooped up at home, and simply staying on top of all chores, taking care of my daughter, and working from home has been overwhelming. It’s been hard not being able to see my friends and family, and with all summer plans and vacations canceled, I suddenly had a lot more time on my hands to endlessly worry about everything. At night, it’s tempting to just watch Netflix, but after a while, it got super boring and I found drawing helped provide some positivity and joy that can also be shared with other people in the same situation. While Covid is not a laughing matter, comic relief is a way to deal with the stress and blow off some steam.

Hope you’ll enjoy these drawings as I’ve had so much fun creating these. Also, check out my previous post here.

My process is simple: it usually starts with an idea and I write it down. Ideas come unexpectedly, sometimes when you are in the shower or during a boring Zoom call. I found it’s important to write your thoughts down so you don’t forget it and it could become a project later. I also found that I get inspired when I am super bored. For example, before the pandemic, I would travel a lot as a way to refresh and escape, but since this has been taken away, I am now forced to be more focused and productive. I use pen and paper to sketch an idea and I scan it and color in digital form in Adobe Illustrator. Lately, I switched to using an iPad and I use Fresco, which saves a lot of time.

With Covid Life cartoons, I am hoping to raise awareness of CDC guidelines and provide some comic relief from our daily struggles.#2

21 Artificial Intelligence Recreations Of Famous Paintings, Historical Figures, And Cartoons By This Artist

Artificial intelligence has become very easy to access to the public, which has made it very popular. Artists all over are combining their skills and AI to create all kinds of edits. Even most apps have filters that use AI to make you look older, younger, or even a different gender.

This San Francisco-based graphics artist uses this new technology to see how famous paintings and cartoon characters would look if they were realistic, and how artificial intelligence recreates historical figures from paintings or portraits on money bills.

On his website, Nathan says: “I am a technical director, creative technologist, visual effects supervisor, and motion graphics artist with over a decade of experience. Currently exploring the intersection of art and AI.”

Nathan Shipley answered some questions for us. He told us what inspired him to create these edits: “On one side, I love to create impossible images and explore new technology. I’ve got a background in animation and visual effects and once I saw what is possible using AI and machine learning tools, I realized there are so many things that could be done with them that would otherwise be impossible. Even some things that may be technically possible with VFX and CG could still be very time-consuming or expensive, whereas AI enables entirely new possibilities.

On the other side, it’s fascinating to explore how an AI model built on a particular dataset with a particular framework can ‘see’ the world and then transform images. The AI ‘knows’ only what it has already seen and filters the world through this lens. Each little tweak to the dataset, the training parameters, the model, and the input imagery all have the possibility to change the output. This is a space to explore how artificial neural networks interpret the world in a way that can be similar to our own minds. I’m not saying that an image I created is what Mona Lisa actually looked like, but it is how the machine sees her based on this particular arrangement of variables. That, to me, is fascinating.”#2

“I have always loved to draw, take photos and paint. I’ve also always had a computer around since I was in elementary school using a 286 with MS-DOS and no hard drive. The combination of traditional art and technology has been a natural step for me and led to my career in VFX and animation.

My current interest in exploring face manipulation and generative art using AI and machine learning started with a project for the Salvador Dali museum called Dali Lives in 2018. I used early deepfake code to bring Dali back to the museum to talk to visitors about his art. From here, I moved into working with GANs and realized how powerful neural networks can be for image processing and generation! For me, creating art is both an expression of curiosity and an act of exploration through process.”#3

“My favorite part about creating art is the process of actually making it; the journey and all the exploration that goes with it.  I love having a problem and no idea how I’m going to solve it, putting my headphones on, losing track of time, and just trying things until it works. 

It’s great to see a finished image, but it’s even more exciting to try new code, use code in ways it wasn’t meant to be, combine different tools together, and create entirely new art through new processes.”#5

Nathan has a 4-year-old son and he loves to explore the world with him: “We fish, go to the beach, paint, draw, read, play baseball, and pretend.  Otherwise I love running – it calms me down and focuses my mind.” 

The artist tells us more about himself: “I’m just a guy from the midwest of the United States.  I grew up in Indiana, went to Indiana University, and then worked doing animation for TV at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.  Eventually I was ready to leave Indiana and go to California.

I was very fortunate to first have the opportunity to travel around the world for a year with no plan before moving to San Francisco.  I flew to Lima, Peru on a one way ticket and spent the next 12 months staying in a handful of cities in South America, Eastern Europe, Turkey, India, and Thailand.  If I got to a place I liked, I got an apartment and stayed for a month.

Traveling, being curious about the world and meeting many different people goes quite well with creating art and just living life in general.

I did eventually land in San Francisco where I’ve spent the last 10 years working on animation, VFX, and creative technology projects at Google, Intel, and currently the ad agency Goodby, Silverstein & Partners.”#7

Nathan explains how he creates these edits: “It’s a very iterative and explorative process.  In the most simple terms, a face is used as input for the software and the software generates new faces based on the input.  I have examples where I am creating “real” versions of painted or cartoon people and also cartoon versions of real people.

 More specifically, to create real people, the central part of the process uses machine learning to find a human who has a similar shape to the faces in an AI network created by Nvidia.  This network is created with a GAN (a kind of machine learning framework, this GAN is called StyleGAN) and trained on a dataset of 70,000 human faces (called FFHQ).  The AI learns how to generalize what a human face looks like and can then generate new human faces that don’t actually exist but look very realistic.

Because the network is trained on images of real people, it’s very good at creating more real people, even when you give it an input that is just a drawing or painting.

I have other examples using the same tool (StyleGAN) to create new images based on 400 year old woodcuts of Aesop’s Fables illustrations, Beeple’s library of everydays, and even custom datasets to make music videos for musicians like Qrion and Hiatus.  A lot of these are on my site here.”#9

“I have a core set of tools that I use from my background in animation and VFX (Photoshop, After Effects, C4D, Maya, Nuke) but the most interesting tools usually come from Github repos released by academics and machine learning researchers.  These are often run by editing Python code on a Linux machine which controls a machine learning library like Tensorflow or PyTorch.  

In fact, almost everything about these face images comes directly as output from the Python code.  I’ve been particularly interested in exploring Nvidia’s StyleGAN and a StyleGAN encoder called pixel2style2pixel.”

Nathan says that the actual images take minutes to create, however he had to go a long way to learn everything: “all of the learning and background I needed to get to the point has been a couple years of exploration and trial and error.  I even attended a conference at MIT called GANocracy back in 2019.

I’ve built an art player, for example, that can generate completely new, never-ending, totally novel art in real time.  Frames are made on the fly!  However, training the model and writing the code for the player was weeks of work and processing time.”#10

The artist shared how he choses which people or characters to recreate: “I pick characters that I love (Miguel from Coco, for example) or historic people that we don’t actually have photographs of. Some faces don’t work as well as others but it’s really exciting when there is a compelling result! A lot of this is trial and error and me just publicly sharing the tests that I make as I go.

For example, I would love to see what Mona Lisa might look like and now I’ve got a realistic face that might be like her. I’m not saying that it is Mona Lisa, but it’s a possibility.

When people see my edits they say everything from ‘amazing!’ to ‘creepy!’ to ‘that looks like my cousin!’ They seem to be getting a good amount of attention, so at the very least they’re interesting!”#12

“Overall, I think the space of generative and AI art is a fascinating and very deep well to explore. I’d certainly encourage readers that are interested to try it out! The technical hurdles can seem daunting but with a little bit of background, you can really Google your way through a lot of this.

It’s also the sort of thing where academics and researchers present these technologies in a very academic or complicated-sounding way.  Understanding a paper called “A Style-Based Generator Architecture for Generative Adversarial Networks” can seem daunting.  However, seeing imagery created by artists with the same technology can be very inspiring!

I’d highly encourage readers to check out the work of Memo Akten, Scott Eaton, Mario Klingemann, Refik Anandol, Helena Sarin and Ben Snell to name just a few.  These are the artists that have been foundational in my own interest in exploring AI and machine learning.”#14

These Stunning Underwater Paintings By Isabel Emrich Will Take Your Breath Away

Isabel Emrich is a Californian painter who creates intricate expressionistic style underwater paintings of women. The artist carefully captures every wave and ripple of water and giving the viewer a unique glimpse of what otherwise would remain unseen.

In her artist statement, Isabel says she forged a strong connection to the ocean growing up in Southern California. The artist expresses gratitude to her grandmother, who used to take her up to the cliffs overlooking the water to paint in the outdoors.

In 2013, Isabel moved to San Francisco to fulfill her dreams of studying at The Academy of Art University. She received a BFA in Fine Art Painting and Drawing in 2016.

“Emrich explores the sensations of peace and calm one feels submerged in water, the dynamism of moving through water, and of the body luxuriantly enveloped in it. A subject’s body may float freely in a pose of complete relief, but the subject’s face and limbs blur with the airy world above, as they break the surface,” says the artist’s statement.

“Isabel explores the dynamics of this boundary with tension and interplay at work – where air and water and light and body converge.  Light plays on the surface, reflecting, dancing in endlessly fascinating patterns.  But it also passes through the water, illuminating what is beneath, bringing out the color and life of the body.”

“Different colors ‘pop’ through the light with the changing visuals implied in a moment’s time. Indeed, being in water is one of most explicit examples one can imagine of ‘being in the moment.’ Time stands still, and once and for all the past and future disappears. Zen-like, one is in the here and now.

“Isabel brings her paintings to life with broad, energetic brush strokes, thick and thin paint qualities, and generous color variety – all hallmarks of Expressionism. In fact, one of her main inspirations is the expressionistic master Van Gogh.”

The bridge is one of the most internationally recognized symbols of San Francisco, California, and the United States. It has been recently declared one of the Wonders of the Modern World.

8. Leaning Tower of Pisa – Pisa, Italy

Another famous landmark in Italy is The Leaning Tower of Pisa. This freestanding bell tower, of the cathedral of the Italian city of Pisa, is known worldwide for its unintended tilt. The tower’s tilt began during construction, caused by an inadequate foundation on ground too soft on one side to properly support the structure’s weight. The tilt increased in the decades before the structure was completed and gradually increased until the structure was stabilized.

7. Taj Mahal – India

The Taj Mahal is an ivory-white marble mausoleum dedicated to Mumtaz Mahal who was the Mughal emperor’s favourite wife. The tomb is the centrepiece of a 17-hectare complex, which includes a mosque and a guest house, and is set in formal gardens bounded on three sides by a crenellated wall.

6. Machu Picchu – Cuzco Region, Peru

Machu Picchu was built around 1450 at the height of the Inca and was built in its classical Inca style. Its three primary structures are the Inti Watana, the Temple of the Sun, and the Room of the Three Windows. Most of the outlying buildings have been reconstructed in order to give tourists a better idea of how they originally appeared. Machu Picchu was voted one of the new Seven wonders of the world in a recent poll.

5. Statue of Liberty – New York, USA

The Statue of Liberty is a giant sculpture on liberty island in New York. The copper statue, a gift from the people of France to the people of the United States, is a robed female figure representing Libertas. The statue became an icon of freedom and of the United States, and was a welcoming sight to immigrants arriving from abroad.

4. Great Wall of China – China

The Great Wall of China is a the largest wall ever built and it is made of stone, brick, wood, and other materials. The Wall was built along an east-to-west line across the historical northern borders of China to protect them against the raids and invasions of their known enemies.

3. Big Ben – London, England

Another Famous European Landmark is the Tower nicknamed the Big Ben in london. This clock has become a cultural symbol in London. When someone needs to showcase London to indicate a generic location in the country, a popular way to do so is to show an image of the tower, often with a red double-decker bus in the foreground. A recent survey found that the tower was the most popular landmark in the United Kingdom!

2. The Colosseum – Rome, Italy

This famous landmark in Rome is best known for hosting gladiatorial contests and other things such as mock sea battles, executions, re-enactments of famous battles, and dramas. Although partially ruined because of damage caused by earthquakes and stone-robbers, the Colosseum is still an iconic symbol of the famous roman empire.

1. Eiffel Tower – Paris, France

This famous landmark in Paris, France was initially criticized by some of France’s leading artists and intellectuals for its design but since then it has become one of the most recognizable icons in the world!
