Alfonso Batalla (b.1958, Spain) - Prefabricated life

Capturing abandoned buildings in a complete state of disrepair, spanish artist Alfonso Batalla has photographed them for the Prefabricated life series. The images reveal a city that has been uninhabited since 1986, with the apartments left to crumble since they were initially conceived. Depicting an eerie atmosphere, the work is the result of two different trips, both in winter and autumn to achieve variation in the lighting. The rooms expose floors that bend, painted cracking walls, and paper falling across the spaces at random, showing the decoration and remnants of families that once lived there. (src. Designboom)

The Sun is better than art

This incredible image was produced using data from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) taken on January 17, 2003. This is the sun photographed as it was building towards a major eruption.

SDO carries imaging instruments that photograph different wavelengths of light released from the sun. If you remember your physics, there is a relationship between the wavelength of light, the frequency of the light, and the energy of the light, so SDO images basically reflect the temperature of the sun.

The colors in this shot are 3 different wavelengths of light. Temperature across the sun’s surface and in its corona varies as gases are moved around by convection and by the sun’s powerful magnetic field. Images like this are both gorgeous and help scientists understand the forces churning beneath the surface of the body at the heart of the solar system.

The Incredible  Fingerpainting ( Oils ) of Iris Scott

Finger painting is now fine art at the hands of New York based artist Iris Scott. Using her fingertips to strike multiple colors at a time she is like a pianist that understands piano is not to be played one note at a time. Iris Scott was classically trained in Florence, Italy and earned her BFA from Washington State University in 2006. Iris began oil finger painting in 2009 when she left the States to live a year in Taiwan. By a stroke of lucky laziness one afternoon when it was too hot outside, Iris opted not to pause on her painting to go clean brushes. It was in this moment the technique was discovered. A few swipes of paint with her fingertips and Iris found a new impressionistic style. She has not used a brush since, and has enjoyed painting full time since 2010. Iris is represented by Cole Gallery in Seattle as well as Adelman Fine Art in San Diego.
