Found this on Youtube. By Joaquim who, if I’m not mistaken, comments on this blog now and then.
Some great shots of the Carl Zeiss Universarium IX from the Griffith Observatory in LA from Metroblogging LA via FFFFOUND. Someone needs to start producing scale replicas of this thing, I’d be first in line.
Last week I noted that this reminded me of some fractal-like plate designs but I couldn’t remember the source. Joshua Gajownik was kind enough to fill in the blank. The second image is a plate from Klaus Haapaniemi’s Taika series for Iittala. The detail in these is amazing.
Jakub sent me the Timothy Saccenti video for Animal Collective’s "Peacebone"; a perfectly amazing visualization of a perfectly amazing song.
I’ve embedded the Youtube version for ease of use, but I’d encourage you to check out the higher quality Quicktime version here. It does a little better justice to the audio / visual.
A nice plate from Owen Jone’s 1856 "The Grammar of Ornament". I really like this original version best; I have the new version which is not quite as vibrant. I hear there is a "professional artist" edition on CD-ROM which is supposed to be truer to the original.

"From about 1956 until 1964, US aeronautics engineers and rocket scientists at the Langley Research Center developed a series of spherical satellite balloons called, awesomely enough, satelloons. Dubbed Project Echo, the 100-foot diameter aluminumized balloons were one of the inaugural projects for NASA, which was established in 1958."
