the devil’s rope

The Devil’s Rope/Type, a series of wires pulled across two wooden posts by Andrew Effendy. Each barbed section of the wires form letters of the alphabet, A through Z, and when linked up to form words alludes to the aggressive nature that words can often convey.

Shelly Reed sees the world in black and white, and paints it thus. Her beautiful grey tones lets the viewer focus on the beauty of the composition and textures.

real magick in theory and practise

with 2 comments

Believed to be the most geometrically complex and aesthetically beautiful structure in mathematics, the 4_21 polytope is the algebraic form at the centre of a universal theory of everything. Originally described in the late 19th century, 4_21 models all interactions and transformations between known and postulated sub-atomic particles. It is the 21st century equivalent of the proto-scientific art of alchemy – where the transmutation of elements was the most elusive mystery of the universe. The theory is an attempt to reconcile one of the fundamental unsolved problems in physics: unify quantum physics and gravitation in hopes of ultimately explaining the fabric of the universe.

Meghan Gerety creates stark images of silhouetted trees on watercolour paper using only pencils. The result is something that is surprisingly photorealistic, but on closer look has the subtle beauty of handwork and lots of patience.

Madspeitersen looks through the plastic and metal encasing our everyday electronics and peers into their insides. Objectification taken to an extreme is always a perfect starting point for amazing art.
