Mad Quickies: Night Tube, Emotional Colors, Pretty DNA, Little People in a Big World and More!

Welcome to the working week, all y’all. I have some Quickies for you. Let’s get to it!

The map design of the London Underground—or “The Tube” as it’s known— is so influential that it’s been the benchmark for metro maps worldwide. And now, there is a map of the Night Tube.

Turns out crystallized DNA is super pretty. Please explore more images at biochemist and photographer Linden Gledhill’s excellent site.

Polish artist Janusz Jurek has created a series of generative illustrations of the human form. It’s like calligraphic lightning and it’s gorgeous.

The Colors of Feelings

More at Laughing Squid.

from the page

“The Colors of Feelings” is an experimental dreamlike video rocking us smoothly through circular moves. It is also an analogy of feelings such as anger, love, sadness and joy ; they mix and eventually ease.

The visual compositions have been created out of paint, oil, milk, honey and cinnamon.

    That tube map takes me back through lots of weird novels and videogames where Londoners take to the tube stations after some flavour of apocalypse. Damn.
