Did you know this is just a normal vending machine in Japan? They’re that fancy, now.

Music video for the Unitxt song “U_08-1,” directed by scientific sculptor Carsten Nicolai. Also, the numbers that comprise the lyrics have some kind of connection to the Golden Ratio. Any mathemagicians out there care to explain?

The first word that comes to mind when viewing a Richard Sarson drawing is “hygienic”. They are clean, exacting works with an economical sense of composition (like a blueprint) and a tactical use of color (like a doctor’s office).

A graduate of the Royal College of Art, Sarson is fond of explaining his work by drawing parallels between art and science–for instance, highlighting the spirit of experimentation that guides advances in both. Knowing this, it’s not surprising that Sarson counts Ludwig Wittgenstein as an inspiration. No one walked the interdisciplinary line more adventurously than LW.
