Architect and graphic designer Mahmoud Tammam has translated his love of word manipulation into a delightful series celebrating language. Based in Alexandria, Egypt, the creative started the project as a “personal challenge.” He explains, “I manipulate Arabic words and transform them into their meaning, and I made a total of 40 illustrated words.” In addition, the pronunciation of these Arabic illustrated words is included on every picture to help you sound them out.

Analogue Loaders by Raphael Vangelis #ArtTuesday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2017/02/21/analogue-loaders-by-raphael-vangelis-arttuesday/

Incredibly fun video with fantastic animation and music from Raphael Vangelis on vimeo via ufunk:

This short film is my animated autobiography. I spend most of my life swearing at the computer because it’s crashed or isn’t working. Here, well known digital symbols are turned into something analogue and playful. The result is an homage to all the lost time we collectively spend in digital limbo in the hopes of sudden development on our screen.

via HYPERALLERGIC

The San Francisco War Memorial Veteran’s Building hosts an eclectic group of arts organizations. For many years it housed the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, several theaters, the San Francisco Arts Commission (SFAC) gallery, and an array of Veteran’s organizations. Today the art museum is long gone, but several arts and veterans-service organizations remain.

How to Help NASA Process the Best Jupiter Pics #CitizenScience
https://blog.adafruit.com/2017/01/31/how-to-help-nasa-process-the-best-jupiter-pics-citizenscience/

NASA has already been keeping the astronomy world busy with Mission Juno, but their JunoCam citizen science project has been earning the real stars. Imagine crowd-sourcing a camera whose main focus is Jupiter–exciting stuff! The public is able to engage with the entire process, according to Universe Today. People have been uploading telescope data to help plan the mission, they’ve been voting on POI (Points of Interest) and lately been helping with image processing. The beautiful pic shown here is an example of raw data that was downloaded and the credits reveal the citizen scientists that processed it, adding enhancements. Reporter Nancy Atkinson interviewed Juno’s project manager, Rick Nybakken, to explain how this detail is possible.

“The spacecraft’s proximity to Jupiter is very unusual. Juno has an elliptical orbit that brings it just 3,107 miles (5,000 km) above the cloud tops. No other mission has been this close, and we’re right on top of Jupiter so to speak.”

What makes this citizen science project so different is that it encourages not only astronomers, but photographers, editors and artists. For instance, I found this humorous version of a photo in the upload gallery titled By Jove, Have a Nice Day. The “Jove” is a play on “perijove” which describes the satellite’s orbit near the center of the planet.

This can be yours!

It's one of my favourites, and definitely one of the most difficult patterns I've ever attempted - cut crystal pears and roundels on silver tigertail, spaced with antique pearlised and Czech glass seed beads, finished with a deliciously smooth polished rose quartz pendant - I'm open to offers, listed for £20 with cheap p&p internationally.

I'm rather proud of this piece - I do have more than a few though, and it deserves to be cherished, enjoyed, complimented by people, worn where-ever the heck you feel like wearing it, because damn, it IS glamorous.

I love it. I love Hyphen more, though, and his vet's bill was steep, so this sparkly, elegant choker is up for grabs. Embrace your inner princess!
