Joyce Lin is a student at the Rhode Island School of Design and in her spare time she creates awesome interactive kinetic sculptures like the beautiful flying fish and bird study pieces pictured here. Although the design and construction process must’ve been painstaking, they were made using simple materials such as popsicle sticks, mylar and tracing vellum.

Speaking about her work she says, “When people view and activate my sculptures, I would like them to feel a kind of childlike awe and wonderment while being reminded that we are part of an infinite chain of systems within systems.”

Flightwave by Circa1983 | http://circa1983.ca/FlightwDve

Aisle seat? No thanks, I’ll take the window. This is how I roll when it comes to flying. Why pass up the opportunity to look down on earth from 35,000 feet? It’s an aerial photography mecca if you’re prepared.

A few tips if you’re planning to shoot from a plane:

1. I’ve found that lenses above 50mm tend to give the best results. This is because they focus past the airline window’s glass better than wider lenses and can isolate your shots better. I’ve even used my 70-200mm with great results for this reason.

2. Shoot at large apertures and fast shutter speeds. This is to keep the shots crisp despite the vibration and movement of the airplane. 

3. If you have the choice, book your flights so that you’re taking off or landing during a sunrise or sunset for optimal lighting and colour. Also, picking a seat near the front of the plane increases the likelihood that your view down to Earth isn’t obscured by the plane’s wing.

Contemporary Art Week!

Tamara Natalie Madden

Madden lists among influences Gustav Klimt and images of Egyptian royalty. You can view many, many more images of her work here at her official website.

I find these breathtaking acrylic and mixed media paintings evocative of both the Fayum Mummy Portraits and early medieval icons featuring the Black Madonna.
