From NASA’s always-spectacular Astronomy Picture of the Day, a glorious shot of Manhattanhenge by Neil deGrasse Tyson himself. (Tyson loves the annual event so much that he made it the center of his hand-drawn cartographic love letter to New York City.)
The second Manhattanhenge of 2014 takes place on Saturday, July 12, at 8:25pm EST.
Amazing Aluminum Human Wire Sculptures
Korean artist Seung Mo Park created these incredible human figure sculptures using tightly wrapped layers of aluminum wire based on fiberglass forms. The works shown here are part of the Brooklyn-based artist’s Human series where he recreates the delicate wrinkles and folds of clothing as well as the sinuous musculature of the human body in metallic layers reminiscent of tree rings. He’s also sculpted bicycles, musical instruments and other forms as part of his Object series.
