Isabel Chiara Collage

on Behance | Artistt on Tumblr

Spanish artist and illustrator Isabel Chiara creates impressive gif collages, some uncannily reminiscent of animations in the Monty Python vein. Chiara cites the great masters of painting as her influences, and that’s something you can easily identify in her gif collages.

Dominic Wilcox'sfuture" car is driverless and made Stained-glass

Wilcox created the car, called Stained-glass Driverless Sleeper Car of the Future, as a commission for MINI Frontiers exhibition on the future of mobility, which opened today as part of the London Design Festival.

The designer imagined a future where all cars were controlled by computers that would eliminate collisions and accidents, meaning everyday vehicles would no longer need to be designed for safety.

Photography is by Sylvain Deleu.

Fruit not forbidden: A slice of Directors Lounge during Berlin Art Week
It might be only a tiny taste of what we get up to, the thinnest wedge of the whole juicy Directors Lounge melon, but if you’re swirling around the Berliner Liste contemporary art fair at Postbahnhof any time between now and Sunday (when the curtain drops), make a point of swinging by DL’s booth (G1.34 on the upper floor) for a handful of hypnotizing video moments culled from our store of films and film-ettes. Turkish media-art darling Erdal Inci’s mesmerizing GIFs (pictured), first screened publicly in Germany at [DLX]* this year and already drawing attention worldwide, will be there, as well as Korean, Greek, Japanese and Finnish picks (Hye Young Kim, Hara Katsiki, Shinkan Tamaki, Maria Björklund) plus visual conundrums and vortex configurations from DLers Julia Murakami and André Werner and more. Manned by Team DL members and waiting to see you.

The Lavery Electric Automatic Phrenometer whirrs into action, August 1907.  It supposedly measured the activity of the brain, but in actuality it studied the bumps on one’s head with hopes to gain insight about their personality.  This is the portable version.  (from Getty Images’ book "Decades of the 20th Century—1900s" by Nick Yapp, scanned by WeirdVintage)

Neighborhoods Behind Smoked Glass
In Mathieu Schmitt's 'Glitched' series we find eerie neighborhood settings encapsulated inside smoked glass cubes. The all-white elements of the sceneries – which have been entirely 3D printed – contribute to the ambience of mystery which is reminiscent of a Tim Burton film still.
