New York- Popping turret, self-animated musical instrument and flying birding drop color dip from the sky, all of these cohesively presented in “All the Things” surreal 3D animation. Chris Guyot and Paul McMahon made this personal project for months to capture eight imaginative scenes in their mind. The artist is kind enough to share his behind the scenes and concept at Behance.
Shandong- Smashed can be seen in everyday life but not this one. Lei Xue, Shangdong-based sculptor, bring back the classic blue-white Chinese ceramic motif which was popular in 14th century in his “Drinking Tea” sculpture series. It seems like a paradox when an aluminum can which is a symbol of industrialism sculpted and painted by hand for each.

New York – This is like a magic. Adobe teamed up with two researchers from Cornell University introduce the “Deep Photo Style Transfer” algorithm allowing to transfer photographic style from one to another by calculating of different layers of a neural network. The outcome from this process is very interesting. However, the research doesn’t recommend to apply this process for photorealistic style transfer but the outcome is satisfying and worth to know how it works. The full paper is available here.
