12 Piano notes made visible for the first time 

Shannon Novak, a New Zealand-born fine artist, commissioned us to image 12 piano notes as inspiration for a series of 12 musical canvases. We decided to image the notes in video mode because when we observed the ‘A1’ note we discovered, surprisingly, that the energy envelope changes over time as the string’s harmonics mix in the piano’s wooden bridge. Instead of the envelope being fairly stable, as we had imagined, the harmonics actually cause the CymaGlyphs to be wonderfully dynamic. Our ears can easily detect the changes in the harmonics and the CymaScope now reveals them—probably a first in acoustic physics.

Let’s take a moment to appreciate more of exquisitely awesome floral Kanzashi hair ornaments created by Japanese artist Sakae (previously featured here). Each delicate piece is handcrafted from resin and, depending upon their complexity, takes between 3 and 30 days to complete.

To view even more of these magnificent wearable resin flowers, visit Sakae’s Facebook page as well as her Flickr account.

William Morris is probably one of the best pattern and textile designers of all time. Morris is know for being the father of the Arts and Crafts Movement. Morris was inspired by the Medieval arts and believed in returning back to traditional methods of designing. His patterns clearly show this by creating everything by hand and being anti-industrial.
