The gory and grotesque art of Soviet antireligious propaganda

The gory and grotesque art of Soviet antireligious propaganda | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

 The images below are from the Soviet anti-religious magazine, Bezbozhnik, which translates to “Atheist” or “The Godless.” It ran from 1922 to 1941, and its daily edition, “The Godless at the Workplace,” ran from 1923 to 1931. The scathing publication was founded by the League of Militant Atheists, an organization of the Soviet Communist Party members, members of its youth league, workers and veterans, so while it was in many ways a party project, it was not state-sponsored satire.

The Explosion of Crayon Colors Since 1903 | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

First invented in 1903, the original Crayola box contained only eight colors, including red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, brown, and black. It sold for only a nickel.

A chart posted on Reddit shows how Crayola crayon colors have grown from eight basic hues to dozens in a little over 100 years.

The Incredible Analog Drawing Machine

The Incredible Analog Drawing Machine | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

The Face-o-mat is a portable drawing booth that Tobias Gutmann carried around with him 40,000 kilometers through Europe, Africa and Asia, drawing over 700 faces. The booth itself is incredibly designed and built, from the coin slot and style sliders to the clicking carousel of paper simulating a matrix printer. I want to teleport Tobias and his machine over here and have him draw portraits of everyone I know. So cool, especially his unique style of drawing. Enjoy and be sure to watch the video above.

Combination planting — where certain crops are planted together to stave off pests or enhance taste — is as old as farming itself. But up until recently it’s been difficult to be precise about where and how different crops can benefit from each other.

'Inkscapes' installation livestreams iPad drawings across a 120 foot display (VIDEO)

'Inkscapes' installation livestreams iPad drawings across a 120 foot display (VIDEO) | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

"Inkscapes" is a sprawling installation that turns tablet doodling into something more profound. Created by Adrià Navarro and DI Shin, the system streams live iPad drawings across a giant, 120-foot-long display, located inside New York's InterActive Corps building. The result is a hypnotic, undulating mural that's equal parts painting and performance.

As Navarro explains, the piece's contours are determined by three artists, each drawing simultaneously on an iPad. Their sketches are scaled up and streamed in real-time on the 11-foot high video wall in front of them, which is composed of 568 LED screens at a combined resolution of 11,520 x 580 pixels. At certain points, some of these screens flicker on and off, creating a glitchy aesthetic, while others fade into gray, distorting or gently swallowing the superimposed sketches.

Artist's self portrait is a robot destined to draw forever

Artist's self portrait is a robot destined to draw forever | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Robo Faber is an autonomous drawing robot that's programmed to sketch random artworks. Created by LA-based Matthias Dörfelt, the tiny Arduino robot is designed to echo the artist's current creative aesthetic. It's an unconventional take on the self portrait: the concept is that Faber will be an offshoot of the artist's creative thinking that remains frozen in time, replicating his current style long after he has moved onto different things.
