We wanted to create a style of jigsaw pattern that was truly our own, combining our interest in the morphology of natural patterns with the opportunities for diversity provided by generative techniques. The puzzle generation system we created is one of the most complex design programs we have created. The system has several stages: piece initialization, core simulation, tolerance checking, and export. Additionally we must account for arbitrary puzzle shapes, inserting whimsies figures, and varying cut styles. (design studio Nervous System)
We’re massive fans of Thomas Brown’s clever, conceptual photography, which tends to take intelligent ideas and use them to cease something beautiful to look at.

OTTAWA.- Nature has been an enduring subject for artists for millennia and across all cultures. From the bulls painted in the Lascaux caves and Palace of Knossos, to the garden frescoes at Pompeii, Dutch still lifes, 19th-century botanical studies and 21st-century land art projects, nature has been either a simple fact of life or a source of curiosity, consolation and spiritual regeneration. Artists have persisted in expressing nature’s complexity in forms that are intimate or epic, analytical or expressive. The National Gallery of Canada presents, until September 9, 2012, Flora and Fauna: 400 Years of Artists Inspired by Nature, an exhibition that features more than 100 works dating from the 16th to the 21st centuries, it explores the myriad ways in which artists respond to the natural world. "The Gallery's collection is filled with outstanding works that visitors rarely have the chance to see for a whole set of reasons," says NGC director Marc Mayer. "Both art and nature lovers will enjoy a leisurely walk through this superb exhibition." Flora and Fauna looks at how painters, printmakers, photographers, sculptors and craftspeople have been inspired by nature over the centuries. This is an exceptionally varied installation in terms of medium, scale and style. It includes drawings, prints, paintings, photographs, sculptures and ceramic works, ranging from the quiet and contemplative to the bold and the audacious. All the works except four are drawn from the collections of the National Gallery. Many great Canadian and international artists are represented, including Lorraine Gilbert, Aganetha and Richard Dyck, Geoffrey James, Bertram Brooker, David Milne, Lucian Freud, M.C. Escher, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Frederick Evans, Camille Corot, and Rembrandt.

The Animal Chair collection constitutes a diverse range of species, from mammals to reptiles, and even including insects. Each creation retains the animal’s natural vitality whilst being totally biological accurate in their appearance. This collection is homage to these animals and the whole animal kingdom which inhabits our planet, as an attempt to reflect and capture the beauty of nature in each living thing.
Kaleidoscopes. Not only a brilliant word, but also some of the best fun in a tube you can have, apart from eating Pringles of course. As a child I’d spend ages looking into them sometimes even two at a time, which is probably why my eyesight is so bad. As a result, I have been unashamedly drawn to Andy Gilmore’s geometric grids of wonderment.

visitors are invited to select a clear acrylic object from a pile of many pieces of different shapes and sizes, and to then enter a huge foil tent, where the 'dock' on which they stand is surrounded on three sides by a shallow pool of water. the instant that a participant touches his object to the surface of the water, the acrylic illuminates, glowing in his hand, because of the ways the material refracts LED lights being shone into the water.
the installation, whose concept the designers describe as 'turn touch into delight' with the goal of 'passing [something] on',was supported by toshiba. it is planned to tour various parts of the world, including japan.
