THE DAILY PIC: This is the wurst (I couldn’t help it) sculpture I’ve ever seen. Titled “Kiss (Abstract Sculptures)”, it’s by the Austrian artist Erwin Wurm and is on view in his solo show at Lehmann Maupin gallery in New York. Wurm is most famous for his “One-minute Sculptures” – early crossovers between performance and sculpture in which he got live people to take on strange poses for brief moments on city streets. In these new so-called “Abstract” pieces, Wurm is asking lowly sausages to do similar work, then casting the results in bronze. Bronze always seems a perilously posh medium, but using it to immortalize animal intestines filled with ground pork just about keeps it humble.

Hacking experiment from Diego Araos in controlling a camera-mounted ParrotAR drone with an Oculus Rift and head tracking - video embedded below:


Integrated Oculus Rift head tracking and video feed with the AR Drone to make a head motion controller. It’s really fun and latency very low.This project is open source and a fork of another of my projects drone-swarm (to control several AR Drones within one network)

A Form of Happiness: Dopamine
We have all felt the rush and experienced the feeling of happiness, and Speculative Design artist Jessica Charlesworth, along with her husband, Product Designer Tim Parsons, has made it tangible. The couples’ A Form of Happiness project has masterfully resulted in their creation of a wood and magnetic representation of the neurotransmitter responsible for releasing the chemical that fuels our desire for happiness. The effects of the organic chemical, dopamine, are likened to the euphoric feeling and pleasurable physical reaction to things such as searching through sale racks while shopping, enjoying a delicious meal, or the pleasure received from engaging in sexual activity.
A Form of Happiness, displayed as the physical model of dopamine, is part of a kit that allows user to assemble the wooden pieces into the chemical compound strand. Each part is held together by embedded neodymium magnets. The kit includes examples of the various roles that the physical piece could take on and provides a more vivid display of what occurs during moments when dopamine is released. Charlesworth and Parsons pose the question, ‘What makes you happy?’ and while the answers will vary by person, as their model and kit prove, the feeling is the same for everyone. Happiness is a simple chemical reaction we seek it throughout life; a chemical bit of magic.
