Merchant Square Footbridge by Knight Architects





Merchant Square Footbridge by Knight Architects
+

A stunning footbridge that resembles a Japanese fan when it rises to allow boats to access the head of Paddington Basin in London. The bridge consists of five steel beams that rise and fall in sequence using hydraulic jacks.
The design has been considered in respect to the high quality new architecture and landscape, and from elevated as well as ground level viewpoints. In motion it will be an eye-catching kinetic sculpture whose silhouette is both legible and exciting and which is well suited to the position on Sunset Terrace.

Art Buff: Street Art by Banksy

A new mural by street artist Banksy entitled Art Buff depicting an older woman staring at an empty plinth with the art "buffed" out while wearing headphones, sort of like the audio guides you see at museums. The mural is located on a wall in Payers Park in Folkestone, England.

Drawn Your Tweet: Doodles by Scott Weston










Drawn Your Tweet: Doodles by Scott Weston
+

Humorous and witty drawings created from random tweets. Scott selects one interesting tweet a day and turns it into funny sketches which he sends back to the original tweeter.
I was inspired to first start doodling after reading random peoples’ tweets and visualising the images in my head. I thought it would be a nice little project, so I set up the address one evening and chose a tweet to draw. I drew a few doodles and sent them back to the original writer—some people were bemused, but most loved it.

Lines of Flight: Paintings by Akihito Takuma










Lines of Flight: Paintings by Akihito Takuma

Monochrome painting of landscapes and cityscapes that reminds me of the early works of Gerhard Richter in which he uses a straight edge, like a ruler, and scrapes the canvas while the paint is still wet to create this motion blur effect.
