Eero Okkonen has a long history of building what are effectively elaborate action figures, like these two wonderfully expressive warriors - but everybody knows that action figures are the most fun when they're being played with. His newest scene pits a Samurai against a Shogunate on a serene bridge. The whole model is stunning, from the color scheme to the poses to the small details, like the snakes used as detailing on a sheath.
I'm not sure if there's a name for the style with which ZiO Chao built this lovely Golden Gate Bridge, but I love it. It's the closest thing I can imagine to building a painting - like a mosaic, but with more detail, and more notably, true depth. The result is a unique piece of brick art that I imagine would look great in a frame.
Designed by architect Santiago Calatrava, the Margaret Hunt Hill bridge spans the Trinity river in Dallas, Texas. And that's what I thought I was looking at until I figured out Lia Chan had built a replica out of LEGO. I suppose it was due to the tricky ground-level angles of the photos, in addition to the dizzying array of white flex tubes. Impressive!
Isn't this awesome?!? The lighting, the work stations, the chair; it's such a great combination of all the sci-fi sets we know and love. Somehow you get a sense of the mass of the rest of the ship in this shot, and the crew's anticipation of what's about to happen. Is it an alien ship, or a dangerous spacial anomaly? Hopefully Peter Reid is working on a story line of NCS adventures.
