A virtual reality recreation by artist James Eads and VR Scout, along with SoulPancake. Eads engaged in a project in 2018, turning famous works of art into 3D renditions using powerful and evocative VR technology. The results, I have to say, are quite stunning. This piece entitled ‘The Great Wave’ is based off of the artwork “The Great Wave off Kanagawa”, a woodblock print by Japanese ukiyo-e artist Hokusai some time between 1829-33 CE.

Material scientists at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have developed a technique to print three-dimensional structures made entirely of liquids. Using a modified 3-D printer, they inject streams of surfactant-sheathed water into silicone oil to form tubes of liquid within another liquid. The threads of water have been printed with diameters ranging between 10µm to 1mm with a variety of spiralling and branching structures. The researchers hope to use the technique to construct liquid electronics, perform molecular separation, or precisely deliver components to more complex structures.

Yes. It’s a 3D spinning pawprint from the 2000s.

A magical print transforms rapidly from animals to buildings and then to a chessboard. A metamorphosis that tells our world’s history in one way.
