please don’t tease carnivorous plants like this!!!! it takes enormous amounts of their energy to dissolve the insects that they need to survive and it takes days to process them!!! when you do this you’re wasting all of their energy and pretty much starving them!!!!!

Molecular Porcelain

Bobby Jaber was a chemistry teacher who was always inspired by art. Now that he’s retired from the classroom, he’s an artist inspired by chemistry.

He molds porcelain clay into molecularly-inspired spheres reminiscent of Buckminsterfullerine (AKA ”C60”), perhaps the most beautiful molecule on Earth. His creations are often symbolic of famous people, places, and moments from the history of science, from Antikythera to Archimedes. 

Here’s a short film of the artist at work, by Dave Altizer:

You can see more of Jaber’s chemical creations on his website, Porcelania

What does chemistry inspire you to create?

Friendly reminder that you can buy sweets called “Ärsche mit Ohren” in germany, which is literally translated with “asses with ears”

Oh look, it’s the Republican House majority.

Don’t be rude. An ass with ears would actually be capable of listening to people. 

and all the haribo we get in the us is gummy bears i feel cheated


Digital Natives by Matthew Plummer-Fernandez

Plummer-Fernandez on his project:

Everyday items such as toys and a watering can are 3D scanned using a digital camera and subjected to algorithms that distort, abstract and taint them into new primordial vessel forms. In some cases only close inspection reveals traces inherited from their physical predecessors. These are then 3D printed on a z-corp printer.

Vessels are arguably the lowest common denominator for man-made objects across all cultures, these objects however have no storage function other than to embody the stored digital data that describes them.
