Forms in Nature: Understanding Our Universe

Forms in Nature is an animated film tribute to wonders of the natural world

Created by the designers from ChromosphereForms in Nature: Understanding Our Universe is a stunning animated short film paying tribute to the geometric shapes of nature, focusing on the most perfect and pure shape, the circle. An audiovisual meditation on mankind’s scientific achievements and the wonders of the natural world, this film celebrates how science deepens our connection to the universe with study and curiosity. This is amazing work! 🙂

Steven Siegel – New York in the 80s

Steven Siegel captures a decaying & apocalyptic 1980s New York

Steven Siegel is an American photographer who captured New York from the 1980s in very raw, almost apocalyptic, images. Through his fascinating photographs focused on urban decay, wastelands, and abandoned spaces, Steven Siegel reveals a time when New York City was a much more dangerous and broken-down place – risky, dirty, and chaotic yet somehow had a sense of honesty, openness, and freedom which according to him was lost after 9/11. You can check out all of Steven Siegel’s work on his Flickr account. Amazing stuff! 🙂
