Split Family Portraits by Ulric Collette 6
SO COOL!! “Portraits Génétiques” by Ulric Collette. A series of composited photos exploring the genetic similarities between family members.
How much do you and your family members really look alike? Quebec, Canada-based graphic designer and photographer Ulric Collette has created a shockingly cool project where he's exploring the genetic similarities between different members of the same family. By splitting their faces in half and then splicing them together, he creates interesting new people that are sometimes quite normal looking and other times far from it. He calls this series Genetic Portraits.

SILK PAVILION by Mediated Matter Group. The Silk Pavilion explores the relationship between digital and biological fabrication on product and architectural scales.

Researchers at MIT Media Lab's Mediated Matter group created a dome from silk fibres woven by a robotic arm, which was then finished by live silkworms
The Silk Pavilion explores the relationship between digital and biological fabrication on product and architectural scales. The primary structure was created of 26 polygonal panels made of silk threads laid down by a CNC (Computer-Numerically Controlled) machine. Inspired by the silkworms ability to generate a 3D cocoon out of a single multi-property silk thread (1km in length), the overall geometry of the pavilion was created using an algorithm that assigns a single continuous thread across patches providing various degrees of density. Overall density variation was informed by the silkworm itself deployed as a biological printer in the creation of a secondary structure. A swarm of 6,500 silkworms was positioned at the bottom rim of the scaffold spinning flat non-woven silk patches as they locally reinforced the gaps across CNC-deposited silk fibers. Following their pupation stage the silkworms were removed. Resulting moths can produce 1.5 million eggs with the potential of constructing up to 250 additional pavilions. Affected by spatial and environmental conditions including geometrical density as well as variation in natural light and heat, the silkworms were found to migrate to darker and denser areas. Desired light effects informed variations in material organization across the surface area of the structure. A season-specific sun path diagram mapping solar trajectories in space dictated the location, size and density of apertures within the structure in order to lock-in rays of natural light entering the pavilion from South and East elevations. The central oculus is located against the East elevation and may be used as a sun-clock. Parallel basic research explored the use of silkworms as entities that can compute material organization based on external performance criteria. Specifically, we explored the formation of non-woven fiber structures generated by the silkworms as a computational schema for determining shape and material optimization of fiber-based surface structures. Research and Design by the Mediated Matter Research Group at the MIT Media Lab in collaboration with Prof. Fiorenzo Omenetto (TUFTS University) and Dr. James Weaver (WYSS Institute, Harvard University). Mediated Matter researchers include Markus Kayser, Jared Laucks, Carlos David Gonzalez Uribe, Jorge Duro-Royo and Neri Oxman (Director).
After the silkworms transform to moth, the left cocoons are able to draw silk in the boiling water. Silk, as natural protein fiber, is going to be processed into beautiful silk product. On average, each cocoon is able to draw 800 to 1200 meters silk; these silk has fiber structure like a mitsubishi mirror, which is able to intake lights from different angels and then emit the light with complex color – this is the reason why silk fiber looks fabulous to present vivid color.

Bats use blood to reshape tongue for feeding
An efficient nectar mop. Brown University scientists have found that a species of bat uses blood flow to reshape its tongue while feeding. The quick dynamic action makes the tongue an effective “mop” for nectar and could even inspire new industrial designs. Findings are reported in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Would you like to have a living chair in your garden? It may take eight to ten years, but artist Peter Cook shows that it’s possible. This practice is called tree shaping, but is also known as Pooktre, arborsculpture and tree training.

Pagan Ritual in Bulgaria

Bulgarian men in Babugeri costumes, taking part in the Kukeri, a traditional Bulgarian ritual to scare away evil spirits (to me they look something like spy-hopping llamas). Photo: Charles Fréger, from his book, Wilder Mann, an in-depth look at the rituals and costumes worn during these annual festivals celebrating the winter solstice and beginning of spring.

The photographs here come from Wilder Mann, a photography series by Charles Fréger (based in Rouen, France), who spent two years traveling through nineteen countries documenting the folk pageants and festivals of what he calls "tribal Europe." The resulting photographs have been exhibited internationally, and collected into an absolutely amazing art book. The art, in turn, inspired a CD of music by the Italian composer .and sound designer Theo Teardo, Music for Wilderness.
"Wilder Mann" photo book of weird traditional costumes by Charles Freger
"French photographer Charles Fréger has been traveling throughout 19 European countries and trying to capture the spirit of what he calls "tribal Europe" in his "Wilder Mann" series. What he found was a huge array of pagan rituals, mainly related to the winter solstice and spring renewal, focusing on the common myth of the "wild man"." AH! WTF?

Camouflage keeps many animals safe from predators, but some say the camouflage of Vietnamese mossy frogs is the most elaborate in the animal kingdom. Its uneven texture of bumps, along with the red, green and black montage of colors, appears to transform this frog into a clump of moss or lichen—blending flawlessly with its habitat. When frightened they fold into a ball and play dead. These frogs have sticky discs at the end of each toe, making them skillful tree climbers.

First Flight! Actually, it is first jump. Baby ducks (or any baby bird, for that matter) cannot fly. But birds stay in the nest til they can fly, ducks drop down into the water or ground and go from there.

Though they don’t happen every day, supercell thunderstorms do occur in more arid climates and can make for some mind blowing sky images. More common in the Great Plains area of the United States, this image was allegedly taken in Alberta, Canada.

The common fear of sharks is largely unfounded. As Sea Shepherd points out - Every year humans slaughter over 100 million sharks. No more than 12 people a year are killed by sharks worldwide. In fact [it] is more dangerous to play golf than to swim in the ocean with sharks. More golfers are struck by lightning and killed each year than the total number of shark fatalities. Many more humans are struck and killed by boats every year than are attacked by sharks.
