Inside a virtual reality headset, digital sketches become awesome sculptures.
Some things are just meant to be seen in motion. That’s certainly the case with A Million Times, a whirring board of almost 300 analogue clocks that exist in such a beautiful harmony with one another that they can segue from a pattern of rhythmically undulating waves to a full-functional digital watchface. A static image doesn’t do it justice.
"Listen" visualizes what it’s like to live with one of the fastest growing and least understood developmental disorders today.
When pedestrian advocacy group Right of Way started drawing chalk body outlines at intersections where cars mowed down New York City pedestrians in the early ’90s, it wanted to send a message to the NYPD and to the city. “To think there was a crime committed here, and then to think about how that’s not normally considered a crime, or a tragedy even,” says Right of Way organizer Keegan Stephan.
In early August of this year, Right of Way revived its old mission. Upon request from the families of victims killed by cars, the organization walked and cycled to the locations of 12 fatal collisions, sprayed an ornate stencil of white, outstretched wings designed by artist Robyn Renee Hasty, and gave space for loved ones to grieve.

Stretching over 590 acres, the Panteón de Dolores is Mexico’s largest cemetery, and contains over 700,000 tombs, gravestones, and sculptures.

In “After Dark,” Internet users around the world control a team of robots that livestream the Tate’s collections into the wee hours.
The author of The Doodle Revolution explains how this common “time waster” is really a creative launch-pad.
International artists that tinker heavily with computers to create their work are called “glitch artists.” They produce a type of new media art that lays out defects—glitches—in a given computer system onto a visual canvas, whether it’s print, 3-D installation, or computer screen.
A new exhibit at the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art in Chicago is celebrating their work, but why? Historically, humans have been indifferent to non-human art; none of Koko the Gorilla’s drawings appear in the Louvre. So will art fans flock to glitch art? Or are these digital artifacts only a mother(board) could love?
