Animated Review

  1. Blooms designed by John Edmark.

    These 3-D printed sculptures, called blooms, are designed to animate when spun under a strobe light. The placement of the appendages is determined by the same method nature uses in pinecones and sunflowers. The rotation speed is synchronized to the strobe so that one flash occurs every time the sculpture turns 137.5º—the golden angle. If you count the number of spirals on any of these sculptures you will find that they are always Fibonacci numbers.

    For this video, rather than using a strobe, the camera was set to a very short shutter speed (1/4000 sec) in order to freeze the spinning sculpture.

    John Edmark is an inventor/designer/artist. He teaches design at Stanford University.

    I am a man of honor and I am mortified
    By your litany of slurs
    Such a lot of words
    Oh dear

    Madam, I challenge you to a duel
    My second warned you to be careful
    That bell can’t be unrung

    Madam, you mistake me for a bumpkin
    It’s clear you’re yelling something
    Oh, please don’t burst a lung

    You are an unfit rival. By spirits taught to sing
    But a tune so twisted now
    Like all that’s sweet’s gone sour
    Oh dear

    Madam, you mistake me for a fool
    Yes, your little dog may hold the pistols
    Although he seems high strung

    Madam, I challenge you to a duel
    My second warned you to be careful
    That bell can’t be unrung
    Can’t be unrung
    Can’t be unrung

  5. A search for higher meaning, dissatisfaction with the status quo and a sense that you’re the first person to feel this way.
    You're not.

    A semi-satirical coming of age story told by handmade wooden puppets.
