Mad Quickies: Scanner Bed Astronomy, Imaginary Street Maps, Dancing Paper Cranes and More!
I have some Mad Art Cast business to attend to (I have to watch a movie… for research), so I’m gonna cut the the chase: HERE ARE YOUR WEDNESDAY QUICKIES.
You tried to do this at your office holiday party, but artist Navid Baraty has taken scanning full moons to a whole new level (get it?). He throws particular stuff on a copier bed, scans and voila! gorgeous, imaginary astronomical images.
