As the stars hit the red carpet for the 2014 Oscars, it’s time to reflect on where they’ve been before… it’s fascinating to see how much these stars have changed… or remained almost identical.

The designer Timothy Goodman transformed the blank white walls of the Ace Hotel in New York with illustrations with paint markers and black paint. Paying homage to the city, this wonderful “99 Picture Frame Illustrations” is to discover in images in the article.
The Japanese are big fans of the photo booth, producing some of the most original examples of the stand-alone photo devices you can imagine: from machines which add cute frames around your pictures to examples which morph you into a big eyed manga character. Now a company called Omote 3D is taking the concept to the next level and will soon be offering people their likeness in miniature printed 3D form!
The company will be opening a pop-up shop at the Eye of Gyre gallery in Harajuku, where customers can get their figure scanned and printed using 3D printing technology. It’s a pretty fantastic concept. Imagine this: while today we find 2D prints of our long past relatives hidden away in a box – often wondering what they looked like in real-life – future generations may find our likeness in 3D form, giving a far more realistic glimpse of our actual appearance.
Omote and the Tokyo based creative lab PARTY, plan to operate the service daily from November 24th to January 13th, 2013 at a pop up store in the Eye of Gyre gallery, offering 3 sizes: small 10cm, medium 15cm, or large 20cm. The price for your “mini-me” isn’t exactly cheap, and will range between 21,000 to 42,000 yen ($264 to $529)… then again, that’s a small price for miniature immortality.

What happens when an analytic mind gets creative? For Australian engineer and artist Ian Burns, it’s an amazing set of switching light installations. By using magnifying glasses to focus the filaments of lightbulbs onto a wall, he has created intricate sets of switches that project words that morph before your eyes.
In his interview for ‘Inside Art’ by The Stock Rooms, Burns said:
I think a lot of engineers are frustrated artists and a lot of artists are frustrated engineers… [What I do] is complicated, but it’s no more complicated than your iPhone and yet we just take that for granted. At the basest of levels it’s the same technology. It’s just switches.
