Water calligraphy is a poetic activity that you can observe in many Chinese parks: Artists use a large brush to write Chinese characters using water instead of ink. Minutes after the characters are written, they disappear.

Media Artist Nicholas Hanna built a tricycle that writes Chinese characters on the ground as it moves.

His tricycle is part of an exhibition for Beijing Design Week: You can see it at the Northern Electric Relay Factory in Dashilanr, south of Qianmen gate. The exhibition opens 6pm  on Saturday September 24, 2011, and runs until October 3.

Solar Sinter solar-powered 3D printer turns sand into glass, renews our faith in higher education (video)
Where would we be without the world’s graduate art projects? In the case of Markus Kayser’s Solar Sinter, we might never have seen the day when a solar-powered 3D printer would turn Saharan sand into a perfectly suitable glass bowl. Well, lucky for us (we suppose) we live in a world overflowing with MA students, and awash in their often confusing, sometimes inspiring projects. Solar Sinter, now on display at the Royal College of Art, falls into the latter category, taking the Earth’s natural elements, and turning them into functioning pieces of a burgeoning technology. Solar Sinter uses the sun’s rays in place of a laser and sand in place of resin, in a process that is perhaps more visually stunning than the results. See for yourself in the video after the break.

Hot Wheels throws Columbia for a loop – Click above for image gallery

Diecast cars are a fun distraction regardless of your age, in fact, we’ve got a few on our desk at this very moment. Hot Wheels may be the king of scale-car fun, but its marketing department likes to think big.

Recently, we saw how it turned a historic Australian building into a 3D racetrack. Now it’s apparently focused its creative attention on Bogota, Colombia. Going low-tech this time, Hot Wheels has placed a giant ‘loop’ in the middle of an overpass.

It’s certainly more eye-catching than a traditional billboard, and it still gets the message across that Hot Wheels are all about fun. Thanks for the tip, Andrew!

It’s incredible how much advertising seeps into our consciousness, whether we are aware of it or not. Proof? Check out this new series of paintings, “You Took My Name” by WeAreDorothy. The series examines corporate logos without their registered trademarks, the effect of which is weirdly disconcerting, maybe because of the sudden unfamiliarity of something which is usually so familiar. Plus, ten bucks says you can name every company logo in this list, go on, try it. (By the way, I don’t have your ten bucks. It was just a figure of speech.)

Created by international digital advertising agency Muse Amsterdam, along with PostPanic and BeamSystems, the show depicted Hot Wheels Skull Racers as they competed in a visually stunning speed racing battle right there on the historic building’s facade. Watch the video above to see some of the world’s fastest vehicles speed race through mid-air.

Although perhaps not the most playable incarnations of the guitar, these pieces certainly do rock more than most. In addition to being awesome sculptures, these guitars will be raising money for several different charities of the artists choosing. The guitars will be making their debut at the SVA Master of Fine Arts Thesis Exhibition in May, 2011. The exhibition is titled IDEOPOLIS and is going to be nothing short of a great exhibition. Our favorite? Of course it’s the ‘DUROX’ condom guitar pictured below!
