Randoms: today 5/9/07

things doing it for me today... playing scrabble online, one off araldite glue portions, a half packed luggage... and the excitement of running around new york in 48 hours!

i'll be in the big apple for the next 10 days so be prepared for an onslaught of window reviews and blog upon my return.

Spotlight: 2d to 3d magic

'The Great Wave Off Kanagawa' from "Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji"; done 1823-29 is a singularly famous image from the Japanese artist Hokusai. It seems to rush forward in 3d off the page.. you feel the energy and the depth of that water whilst viewing it from only one 2d angle...

So below is a piece of prop making mastery.. capturing that wave and creating into 3d display that has all the joy and realism of the true wave. The precision of that vision and construction are flawless and you wish that this was a piece of sculpture for your home, not just a temporary display in a shop front.
