Hine Mizushima: Unnatural History Museum

Posted in craft, geek, plush, science with tags , , , on May 11, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

I am crazy about all of Hine Mizushima’s work. She creates some of the best, most imaginative needle felted projects out there in the craft universe. My new favorites…these lab specimens:

Stephen Colbert Interviews Neil deGrasse Tyson

Posted in geek, home, science, video with tags , , , on May 9, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

I rarely post interviews, no less interviews that run an hour and a half long, which should test to the quality of this video here.

Stephen Colbert and Neil DeGrasse Tyson are both extraordinarily entertaining and gifted human beings. Putting them together makes for a comedic, informative alchemy unlike others I’ve seen.

My dear fellow geeks, do not miss this if you haven’t already seen it!

Where does Dana find these great visuals? What a brain! Such insight! How I miss reading her comments and just what really drew her in. But until then, feast your eyes, and share with us what you think. Enjoy!

Bill Pechet’s sculpture installation “Emptyful” stands in the Millennium Library Plaza in Winnipeg, Canada. It is one huge beaker of light and mist. And of course, something that Dana loves, and wants to share through her blog.

Matthew Cox works with X-rays to create the “stark clash of two such divergent materials, cloth and plastic… One tactile and labor intensive, the other technical, and quickly a finished product.”

Artist Emil “Rocky” Fiore’s art is to set spider webs in a way to preserve them.

These are quite beautiful. In high school, I, your humble proxy poster, used to do this with white paint and transfer the webs onto my shoes and leather jacket. It never dawned on me to do this as Emil has. Check out more at his website:
