A Nerds Menagerie: Art

Let’s take a minute and look on in awe…

This specialized laser system at LasX Industries in Minnesota is capable of drawing on surfaces at a rate of up to 6 meters per second. In this example, a design by Andy Gikling is executed in a two-step process. First, the laser moves in raster mode, but at the 1:40 mark things get insane as the system switches to a “vector” process and starts drawing all over the place in real time. wow!

These are amazing! via Colossal, artist Bruce Shapiro invented the Sisyphus Machine, an elaborate kinetic drawing machine that uses magnets to drag rolling steel marbles through a thin layer of sand to create complicated mandala-like patterns. See more here.

If you’re on Instagram you have to be familiar with photographer Murad Osmann! If you aren’t, run to his instagram! Keeping in tune with his #followmeto theme, his wedding photo to his muse and now wife followed suit. How gorgeous! Congrats!
