Michael Jackson Patented Shoes To Perform His Gravity-Defying Lean


In 1993, Michael Jackson, along with Michael L. Bush and Dennis Tompkins, filed for a patent on the “anti-gravity” shoes they invented. These special shoes had a triangular groove in the heels that caught onto a bolt sticking out of the stage floor which allowed Jackson and his dancers to lean forward beyond the center of gravity. The King of Pop used this gravity defying illusion to wow audiences in live performances of the song “Smooth Criminal.”

William Shakespeare’s Star Wars, A Book by Ian Doescher


Shakespeare_SW

William Shakespeare’s Star Wars is a book by Portland-based creative director and author Ian Doescher that reimagines the story of Star Wars in the distinct style of William Shakespeare. It was published by Quirk Books and features twenty fantastic illustrations by artist Nicolas Delort. Hardcover and e-book editions of the book are available to purchase online at Amazon (e-book) and Barnes & Noble.

Return once more to a galaxy far, far away with this sublime retelling of George Lucas’s epic Star Wars in the style of the immortal Bard of Avon. The saga of a wise (Jedi) knight and an evil (Sith) lord, of a beautiful princess held captive and a young hero coming of age, Star Wars abounds with all the valor and villainy of Shakespeare’s greatest plays. ’Tis a tale told by fretful droids, full of faithful Wookiees and fearstome stormtroopers, signifying…pretty much everything.

Reimagined in glorious iambic pentameter—and complete with twenty gorgeous Elizabethan illustrations–William Shakespeare’s Star Wars will astound and edify Rebels and Imperials alike. Zounds! This is the book you’re looking for.

Here is a trailer for William Shakespeare’s Star Wars from Quirk Books:

AeroVelo’s human-powered helicopter|


AeroVelo-s-humanpowered-helicopter

The American Helicopter Society has officially declared AeroVelo winner of the Igor I. Sikorsky Human Powered Helicopter Competition. The AHS Sikorsky competition began in 1980, and the prize was destined for anyone able to stay at least 10 feet in the air for at least 60 seconds within a  30′ x 30′ space using a flying machine powered solely by a single human. No team has ever managed to meet all of the requirements — until now. AeroVelo Atlas Human-Powered Helicopter captured the long standing AHS Sikorsky Prize with a flight lasting 64.1 seconds and reaching an altitude of 3.3 metres.
Canadian Todd Reichert and his team have just been awarded $250,000 and the honor of building something that really worked. Reichert said:
This isn’t something that you’re going to commute to work in any time soon, but it’s an exercise in really pushing the limits on what’s physically possible, and what you can do with lightweight materials and really creative design. Winning this competition really is a catalyst to keep doing the things we love. Our goal is to take on projects that really inspire people to follow big dreams.”

La Mise en Abîme


tumblr_mq3fwizaBn1qz6f9yo1_500 tumblr_mq3fwizaBn1qz6f9yo2_1280

It’s that time of year again – back to Bellelay for the summer exhibition. For this year’s edition, the Abbey-church is hosting an installation especially created by Swiss artist ROMAIN CRELIER.

Entitled La Mise en Abîme, the mesmerising installation comprises two large, extremely precise and impeccably finished receptacles in which vast quantities of used oil are contained. Shaped like giant puddles, the sculptures with their shiny, and lacquer surfaces (thanks to the expressive properties of oil) reflect the surrounding, allowing the viewers to interact with the architecture of the church by being pulled into the reflection so that they, in turn, become part of the sculpture itself. The installation not only dispenses multiple visual thrills and mysteries but also offers a moment where sculpture creates another reading of space.

tumblr_mq3fwizaBn1qz6f9yo3_r1_1280 romain-crelier-6 romain-crelier-11

Working in a scale simultaneously monumental and intimate, these sculptures continue CRELIER‘s career-long exploration of the space through conceptual engagement with buildings as well as his experimentation with light and dark, form and void, inside and outside, surface and depth, abstraction and figuration, reflection and absorption.

And good news: this exhibition is currently on view the Abbey-church of Bellelay, Switzerland and is running through September 16, 2013
