Hypnotic Kinetic Sculptures by Jennifer Townley Fuse Mathematics and Art #ArtTuesday

via Colossal:

Although powered by simple rotary engines, these kinetic sculptures by Netherlands-based sculptor Jennifer Townley are dizzying in complexity. Repetitive patterns twist, merge, and cascade as individually sculpted elements rotate on a single axis, an intricate fusion of art and mathematics. From Townley’s artist statement:

The works derive from her fascination with science, with an emphasis on physics, engineering and mathematics. Geometric patterns in Islamic art or mathematical drawings of Dutch artist M. C. Escher often serve as an inspiration. Images where lines and figures match each other so perfectly they could be repeated indefinitely. This infinity, regularity and obedience is what Townley also finds fascinating about mechanical machines; they are robust, strenuous and seemingly immortal. She is captivated by how a machine can convert a simple circular motion (rotary engine) into a very complicated nonlinear or chaotic movement pattern.

Thanks, science. 
Indian food is something of an anomaly, but not for the reasons you might think.

Print - not just for luddites anymore.
Textbook makers, bookstore owners and college student surveys all find a preference for old-fashioned print.

Few book series celebrated narrative possibility and experimented with branching storytelling in as unique a way as the Choose Your Own Adventure novels. They were largely the work of R.A. Montgomery, who died aged 78 on Nov. 8.

(Resharing this because for some reason g+ shrunk the image down to nothing the first time)

While I admit I bought the Cementimental harsh noise graphic novel half on a lark, it really is awesome and has a whole chapter of these uber mini geomorphs.

The Lost City
The City of the Monkey God. La Ciudad Blanca, or The White City. All the names given to the lost city rumored to exist in a pristine Honduran rainforest sound mythical, but National Geographic reports that now we have evidence that the legendary city was real.

"In honor of SDO's fifth anniversary, NASA has released a video showcasing highlights from the last five years of sun watching. Watch the movie to see giant clouds of solar material hurled out into space, the dance of giant loops hovering in the corona, and huge sunspots growing and shrinking on the sun's surface."

That had to be incredible.  I can't get over some of the scenes, the crazy wave planet, the frozen cloud/psycho Matt Damon planet... but it was a great movie and I loved how they represented time as physical object.
