“Time is a Dimension” by Fong Qi Wei

Photos are often referred to as life’s moments frozen in time. While Singapore-based photographer Fong Qi Wei loves photography as a medium, he wondered whether it would be possible to combine the permanence of photos and the movement of time as recorded by video cameras.

In Time is a Dimension, Fong setup his tripod in places around Singapore and took series of photos for a period of two and fours hours, mostly of sunrises and sunsets for a varied colour range. He then combined the images into a single, layered image.

The basic structure of a landscape is present in every piece. But each panel or concentric layer shows a different slice of time, which is related to the adjacent panel/layer. The transition from daytime to night is gradual and noticeable in every piece, but would not be something you expect to see in a still image.

Have a look at his stunning compositions after the jump.

Epic Rap Battles of History: Blackbeard vs Al Capone

Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag is about to appear on the starboard bow. It chronicles the adventures of Edward Kenway, a privateer-turned-pirate. For their face-off, Epic Rap Battles of History turned their attention to a real scourge of the West Indies in the early 1700s: the notorious pirate Blackbeard. His opponent in this duel of words and wit would be none other than Chicago’s king of crime, “Al” Capone.

Check out the scallywag swagger in Blackbeard vs Al Capone below.

Who do you think won that rap battle?

The Black Hole Project

Simply put, black holes suck. Thankfully, Fabian Oefner’s Black Hole project is attractive and far from sucky.

Inspired by the drippy paint style of Jackson Pollock, the Swiss photographer and artist decided to investigate the effect of centrifugal force on paint. He dripped coloured shades of acrylic paint onto a metal rod that was connected to a drill. When the drill was switched on, the paint whirled away from the rod, and Oefner’s camera flashed at 1/40000 of a second, capturing the images of the paint in motion. Have a look at some of his rather colour Black Hole images after the jump.

We Review: Beyond: Two Souls

I wonder if David Cage revels in being different? His studio Quantic Dream makes games different (and differently) from their peers. With the 2010 psychological thriller Heavy Rain, the studio orchestrated a coming-together of video games and film noir. In 2012, Kara the short film showed off their advanced graphics and motion capturing technology. And in 2013, Beyond: Two Souls they create their own concept of a modern adventure game that not only places emphasis on the themes of love, loss, and consequence but gets an injection of super-natural action, a top-notch Hollywood cast, and a story that spans 15 years. Seems like a great setup then, but is this form of interactive movie worth your time and money?

Superhero Origins by The Ninjabot

Back in April, the design collective at The Ninjabot set about creating a collection of minimalist art prints, each one telling the story of how a superhero came to be the way that they are. They called it the Origin series on Kickstarter.

The project started out with six prints, but exploded to 13 different designs, and now with Origin Series Part II, The Ninjabot wants to fund the print run of the “Origin Series” as art book with the inclusion of new character designs. Have a look at their beautiful series of superhero illustrations after the jump.

We Review: Grand Theft Auto V

I have a confession to make: despite being a gamer for so many of my years, I’ve never played a Grand Theft Auto game before now. So you’re getting the view of the game from the fresh eyes of someone who has never before visited San Andreas, or Chinatown, or Liberty City. Isn’t this exciting? So let’s see the sights of the city of Los Santos as I give you the grand tour of Grand Theft Auto V. Hope you’re strapped in tightly and sitting comfortably on your botty, because this ride is going to be a little…bumpy. Continue Reading →
