This project was created by merging the ideas of commute and constellation in a personal way. Each character signifies an important part of my life, and the “constellation” that they are attached to is traced map routes of the places I commute to on a daily basis

DevArt is a new type of art. It is made with code, by developers that push the possibilities of creativity and technology. They use technology as the canvas and code as the raw materials to create innovative, engaging digital art installations.
DevArt is the opportunity to open their creative process, share their art with the world and be a part of a new movement in art.Google, with the Barbican in London, will commission a developer to create a new digital art installation alongside some of the world’s best interactive artists at the Digital Revolution exhibition: the biggest and most comprehensive exploration of digital creativity ever to be staged in the UK. From there, the exhibition will then go on tour to cities around the world.Can’t wait to visit the show, which opens in July … you can find out more at the DevArt website here
Sure, puppies are cute, but they’re also quite complex. At TEDxZurich, systems scientist Nicolas Perony uses YouTuber Robert Gann’s Scottie Pinwheel to show how complex social structures emerge from a group of individuals following a common rule (here: keep access to milk).
Watch Nicolas’s talk to understand more about the simple rules that drive some of the astoundingly complex social behavior of other animals — like bats and meerkats.
Frolicking in the autumn leaves, this little lion cub is having the time of her life as she excitedly plays in her enclosure.
Tiny cub Karis proved she’s not too dissimilar to human children as she threw herself into the pile of golden leaves carefully collected by her keepers, even ending up with a pile on her head.
Staff at the Blair Drummond Safari Park, near Stirling, Scotland, had been raking up the leaves to keep the attraction tidy, when Karis’s keeper Brian Reid realised that his little charge might enjoy playing in them and moved the pile into her enclosure.

Craig Ellwood was a construction company created by Jon Nelson Burke and three partners in the 1940′s in Los Angeles. The name was chosen after a liquor store located in front of the firm offices and it lately became widely associated with many modernists buildings spread all over California. This success lead the firm’s “front-man” Burke to actually change his own name into “Craig Ellwood”, somehow literally embodying this fictious character.
The last architectural work attributed to Burke/Ellwood, before he retired in Italy starting a career in painting, is a 263,52 m x 43,92 m neutral plan spanning over a scenic landscape, a metallic structure reminding a stretched Miesian building.
The Art Center College of Design in Pasadena is an inhabited infrastructure, a two level continuous floor filling the request for large and uninterrupted work spaces. The exposed steel structure becomes an actual bridge when it crosses a creek and a roadway, and you can actually “drive” under it in google maps
