Mad Quickies

Mad Quickies 4.12

It’s the Friday Quickies!. We’ve got lots to cover. Let’s begin!

…………..

The stunning work of artist Keng Lee is making the rounds on the net. It’s a technique that we first fell in love with by Riusuke Fukahori who we featured in the Quickies. Here again is Fukahori’s video:

Goldfish Salvation

from the page
When struggling with artistic vision, Fukahori’s pet goldfish became his inspiration and ever since his passion and lifelong theme. His unique style of painting uses acrylic on clear resin which is poured into containers, resulting in a three-dimensional appearance and lifelike vitality.

This video gives you a glimpse of his amazing painting process.

The Science and Art of the Facial Reconstruction Process

from the page

This video demonstrates the process of facial reconstruction completed by Museum Specialist Gay Malin. The video provides a step-by-step description of how artists go about rebuilding the features of a long-dead person, based only on the shape of their skull. This video focuses on the reconstruction of facial features from a skull of a woman who died 300 years ago in Albany. Her remains were excavated from the cemetary associated with the Albany Almshouse (1826-1926). The video provides a lot of interesting detail about how the artist decides on unknowable features like ear shape and body fat measures.

    The letter furniture looks fun. It reminds me of the PBS kids show, ‘Word World’. 🙂
