Blooms are 3-D printed sculptures designed to animate when spun under a strobe light. Unlike a 3D zoetrope, which animates a sequence of small changes to objects, a bloom animates as a single self-contained sculpture. The bloom’s animation effect is achieved by progressive rotations of the golden ratio, phi (ϕ), the same ratio that nature employs to generate the spiral patterns we see in pinecones and sunflowers. The rotational speed and strobe rate of the bloom are synchronized so that one flash occurs every time the bloom turns 137.5º (the angular version of phi).* Each bloom’s particular form and behavior is determined by a unique parametric seed I call a phi-nome (/fī nōm/). -John Edmark (more…)

A short about fine art painter and picture book maker Oliver Jeffers.
Inside this book is a constellation-projecting planetarium, a smartphone “speaker”, a stringed instrument, a drawing generator, a perpetual calendar, and a decoder ring—all made out of paper.
This Book is a Planetarium book concisely explains—and actively demonstrates—how such a simple material can be bent to tap into how the world works to produce function. It highlights the connection between how things are put together and what they do.

This Is a Generic Millennial Ad, created with And/Or studio, shows how easy it is to appeal to anyone born between 1980 and 2000. The good news? Thanks to social media, it’s easy to connect with this influential audience. The bad news? They hate spending money on things. (Except for maybe avocados.)
