From the Mendocino Woods – the boiler has been shored up!

Super cool geometry stuffs – Magic Angle Sculptures by John V. Muntean. As a scientist and artist, I am interested in the how perception influences our theory of the universe. A Magic Angle Sculpture appears to be nothing more than an abstract wooden carving, skewered with a rod and mounted on a base. However, when lit from above and rotated at the magic angle (54.74º) it will cast three alternating shadows. Every 120º of rotation, the amorphous shadows evolve into independent forms. Our scientific interpretation of nature often depends upon our point of view. Perspective matters.

Quilled Paper! Portraits (with cool video of the process) … Anatomy

and, not that it makes me like wasps any more, but look what they do with colored paper!

and speaking of paper, the amazing Helen Hiebert has a Kickstarter up for a few more days for an awesome looking project-a-month Paper Calendar.
