This set of images by Chris Jordan is just amazing. Each image shows a specific statistic/quantity (two million plastic beverage bottles for example – the number used in the US every five minutes) in large intricately detailed prints put together with thousands of smaller photographs. Seeing it represented in this way is truly mind boggling
“Statistics can feel abstract and anesthetizing, making it difficult to connect with and make meaning of 3.6 million SUV sales in one year, for example, or 2.3 million Americans in prison, or 32,000 breast augmentation surgeries in the U.S. every month.” – Chris Jordan
Simon Schubert uses just paper folds to create a two-dimensional room or building on a sheet of paper. I find origami quite an impressive art but this is paper-folding on a unique level. His website is not in English but all you need to see is the images.
I always enjoy seeing creative ways of visualising data and Alex Dragulescu’s Spam Architecture is another great example.
“The images from the Spam Architecture series are generated by a computer program that accepts as input, junk email. Various patterns, keywords and rhythms found in the text are translated into three-dimensional modeling gestures.”
The Audi D7 is a revolutionary concept car made by Iranian designer Kave Naser Bakht and was shown at the 2009 “From dream to reality” Expo in Tehran. The D7 is a sports model with an electric motor and the most interesting element in its design is the continuous LED line that forms and joins the head and tail lights. This light really gives the car a unique identity. I want one!
Now here’s a creative set of images to take you back to the old Nintendo days. Games such as Street Fighter, Yohsi’s Island, Donkey Kong, Outrun and Excite Bike (remember that one?) all cleverly remade. Ahhh the nostalgia. eBay here I come!
