Urban Exploration Photos of New York City by Dark Cyanide

Despite being just 18 years of age, pseudonymous urban exploration photographer Dark Cyanide has created an impressive body of work documenting New York City from unusual and often illegal vantage points. The New York City-based photographer focuses on urban architecture and infrastructure in photos–often taken at night–that highlight the geometric forms and symmetry of his subjects. He discusses his work in this Feature Shoot interview, and we previously posted about his stunning night photos of the George Washington Bridge. Dark Cyanide can be followed on Instagram.

Israeli Engineering Students Create a Rube Goldberg Machine That Tells the Story of Passover

Students at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Mount Carmel near Haifa have created a wonderful Rube Goldberg machine that tells the story of Pesach (Passover), complete with wine and matzo.

“Creativity is intelligence having fun”. This insight, attributed to Albert Einstein, describes perfectly the Rube Goldberg Passover video that we and our students have made for you to enjoy. The youthful energy and ingenuity –the joie de vivre – that burst from this video, are what the Technion is all about.

A Technion student also gave a behind-the-scenes tour of the machine.

The film is a follow-up to their first three films, “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared,” “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared 2,” and “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared 3.”

Recycled Starbucks Coffee Sleeve Sets That Feature Colored Pencil Drawings of All 12 Iterations of ‘Doctor Who’

Doctors 1-4 Set 1 – Doctors 1-4

Indianapolis-based designer Kahahuna has created a wonderful line of hand-drawn recycled Starbucks coffee sleeves sets that feature all 12 iterations of Doctor Who (excluding the “War Doctor“) and a wonderful portrait of a single Dalek in all of its menacing glory.

These are hand-drawn Doctors …on up-cycled Starbucks cup sleeves. I got the idea while I was at work (I work at Starbucks) and randomly handing out drinks with decorated sleeves to my customers. They loved the idea so much that I decided to put my own love of Doctor Who into colored pencil. These are made on recycled cardboard sleeves that would otherwise have been thrown away. Each sleeve has been sprayed with a matte fixative to keep the pencil in place. I have priced these at $12 each and shipping is included for the set. (within the US) I’m not selling these particular pieces individually at this time.

The sleeves are sold in sets of four via the Kahahuna Shop on Etsy.
