It’s Good to be Norwegian, Apparently

The recent spike in solar activity has given Scandinavia quite the nightly sky show. Here’s a video time-lapse from Norway showing the bright aurorae as a result of the sun’s feistiness.

Special treat at 0:37 in the center for those with sharp eyes.

If that’s not enough, here’s another. And another.

Strike a pose there’s nothing to it:
Carlo Maria Mariani, The Tempest, 2005, from David Ebony’s new monograph on the artist, just published by Skira. 
The painting, in the territory where de Chirico meets Balthus, looks like the nightmare of a model who poses for a life drawing class. Or maybe the nightmare is that none of these hands is depicting her at all.

Tele-Present Water by David Bowen

image

I rarely use the phrase ‘mind blown’, but this is one of those rare occurrences.

An art installation which combines real-time data, mechanical puppetry, and a physical grid representation usually employed virtually with computers:

image

This installation draws information from the intensity and movement of the water in a remote location. Wave data is being collected in real-time from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data buoy station 46246, 49.985 N 145.089 W (49°59’7” N 145°5’20” W) on the Pacific Ocean. The wave intensity and frequency is scaled and transferred to the mechanical grid structure resulting in a simulation of the physical effects caused by the movement of water from halfway around the world.
