The illustration and inspiration of Jasmine Natalie Matthews, a 21 year old student studying visual communication:illustration. Likes leaves, geometry & corrugated card (throwing a random selection of interests out there. why not....)

unicorn-meat-is-too-mainstream:

Astronomy photographer Jeff Barton shows that beauty can be found in the most unexpected of places, including the interiors of meteorites. 

Before taking these shots, the meteorites are first broken with a rock saw and a diamond-coated blade, and are ground till they become thin enough for light to pass through. 

The photographs are then taken with polarizing filters, and a microscope which is used to view rocks. 

As the crystals in these meteors catch different light frequencies, Barton is able to capture their iridescence, even rotating them at angles to get a kaleidoscope of color. 

Although these crystals are beautiful, the colors actually tell the scientists the different types of minerals that make up the meteorites, helping them in their research.

Symmetrium by Niko Luoma

Luoma on his work:

My material is light. The work focuses on energy rather than matter. My work is about the process as much as about the result.

My process combines systems of calculation and change. I find my inspiration in mathematics and geometry; symmetry and chaos, both imagined and found in nature…

In my recent “symmetrium” series, time reveals the process through thousands of exposures on a single negative.

Trailblazer: Beyond Neo-ExpressionismEver since the inception of art, when humans started painting on cave walls around 40.000 years ago, the goal has been to communicate, to express.One of the most cruical components to succesful communication is adaptation. You don’t adress a banker as you would a rockstar, and you dont adress a judge like a 5 year old. You adapt.I’ve adapted my work to the times we live in, I’ve incorporated technology in such a way the very aesthetics of my work could not be created even 5 years ago. In that sense it goes under the New Aesthetics umbrella, but to only classify it as such would be imprecise, maybe even criminal.Would it then be accurate to classify my work as neo-expressionism? No, and neither would it be accurate to call it digital art. Why? Because my work goes way above and beyond those terms. I destill my work through different mediums, ranging from painting to sculpture to digital rendering. Why? To capture the very essence of what I’m trying to communicate, and thereby communicate more accuratly.It’s the next level of human expressionism. Post neo-expressionism.The definition is simple. Expressionism + digital rendering + x = post neo-expressionism."Just another step towards the inevitable singularity"∞ Price Bullington ∞
