What can you do with Lego? What CAN’T you do with Lego! Check out these nifty gadgets made from the world’s favorite toy building brick. Guess what? They are directly from Lego, via its new product line of electronics targeted at the youth market. My favorite? A video camera that looks suspiciously like the offspring of the Flip Mino and new Nano.

Patching holes left in Berlin following World War II with Lego? Why not? Jan Vormann started the “beautification” project and inspired many other passersby to join and follow suit. Vormann’s kinetic sculpture work is currently on exhibit at the Jarmuschek + Partners gallery until June 13, 2009.

Meet The Chief Engraver for the U.S. Mint

Yes, there is a Chief Engraver for the U.S. Mint and his name is John Mercanti. Mercanti is drawn to the classical, but somehow meshes that sensibility with the digital studio and tools. His charges’ first assignment: sculpt Michelangelo’s David in the virtual medium.


At The Intersection of Math and Art

Bathsheba Grossman is a studied mathematician who also happens to love art. How does this pan out? In highly geometric sculpture rendered in metal or glass. He sells his work from his web site, Bathsheba Sculpture. Taken from his site:

I’m an artist exploring the region between art and mathematics, and this is my gallery and storefront.  My work is about life in three dimensions: working with symmetry and balance, getting from a zero point to infinity, and always finding beauty in geometry.

Seems Mr. Grossman has a firm handle on both sides of his brain.
