Azuma Makoto installed a dozen of iced flowers

first image of the post
Flowers and plants beauty is hard to capture, as the vegetals always grow and keep changing. Japanese artist Azuma Makoto found a temporary solution: freezing the flowers and plants into massive cubes of ice. Shots of the cubes were then taken, showing the cold beauty in a wonderful piece of botanical art.

Back to black flowers: amazing photos by Bettina Güber

Bettina Güber‘s idea for this photography project was quite brilliant. She tainted some flowers in black before taking shots of it. With these monochromatic pictures, she take the attention of the viewer away from color and let us appreciate the subtle textures of the flowers.

These solar arrays fold up like origami flowers

Sending stuff up to space is no easy task — even 45 years after Apollo 11. Size, weight, and cost are all massively important, so some researchers are turning to advanced origami to fold up solar arrays. The result of their two years’ worth of work is a solar array with a diameter of just 8.9 feet (2.7 meters) when folded and a massive 82 feet (25 meters) when unfurled. A 1/20th scale model of the array is what you see here.

To build the solar array, Shannon Zirbel and professor Larry Howell of Brigham Young University, and mechanical engineer Brian Trease of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, enlisted the help of renowned origami expert Robert Lang. One of the major difficulties faced by the team is that solar arrays are not as thin as…

3D flowers printing

flower8

With the evolving technologies and trends, 3D printing – the process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital model – has gained special attention and market hit. This technology is used in several fields including jewellery, industrial designs, architecture, education, engineering, and to your surprise it is now used in floral as well. Yes, you heard it right.

Joshua Harker, who is an artist, sculptor, musician, digital adventurer and imagination architect, has been working on a new 3D printing technology that pushes the boundaries of quality, and creates small bouquets comprising 10 to 12-inch flowers. He believes his 3D printed filigree floral structure will help to raise funds to complete R&D of a revolutionary new 3D printer technology.

The limit of what 3D printing can do are constantly being tested, and one of the best result is Joshua Harker’s exceptional 3D floral design which is the result of his creative imagination, art and invention. You can visualize some of his 3D floral print in the given pictures:

Complex crystal ‘flowers’ self-assemble with chemical manipulation

Crystalflowers_large

Researchers at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences have grown microscopic fields of flower-like structures made of crystals. Project lead Wim L. Noorduin and his colleagues were able to modify the growth of the crystals through tiny chemical alterations of a fluid containing water, liquid glass, and the salt barium chloride. Carbon dioxide from the air dissolved into the solution, forming solid barium carbonate crystals. “This precipitation happens spontaneously,” says Noorduin, but by controlling the amount of carbon dioxide that dissolves into the solution, the team was able to change the way the crystals formed. A high amount of carbon dioxide led to “broad, radiating leaves,” while low carbon dioxide levels could…
