Rocky Bergen’s Retro Computer Papercraft

1 Share

Winnipeg-based artist and designer Rocky Bergen makes detailed papercraft of vintage computers, game systems, and electronics that you can print out, cut, and fold for yourself.

The most elaborate are his Commodore 64 models — complete with 1701 monitor, 1541 disk drive, VicModem, MPS 801 Printer. Upgrade it with some flashy cracktro screens and a couple bootleg floppies.

Not a Commodore fan? Rocky also recreated the Apple II, Amstrad CPC 464, GameCube, and Conion C-100F boombox.

With very slight alterations, these would make some pretty great Christmas ornaments. Print ’em out and get folding!

You can subscribe to Rocky’s blog, or follow him on Twitter or Instagram. Thanks, Rocky!

A System of Root-Like Benches Spreads Organically Through a South Korean Public Park

1 Share

Root Bench is a multi-height bench system installed in Hangang Park in Seoul, South Korea. The design is a winning proposal by Yong Ju Lee, which creates a circular protrusion of roots that provides space for rest and relaxation. The nearly 100-foot diameter installation is formed from conjoined slats of wood attached to a metal frame, and sprawls from a centralized point in the park. Three different heights accommodate children’s seating, adult chairs, and tables for picnicking. This provides space for all sizes, and allows gatherings that vary from intimate to community-wide celebrations. (via Designboom)

Delicate Watercolor Landscapes Embodied by South African Wildlife

1 Share

South Africa-based artist Sujay Sanan‘s series A Place I Know documents landscapes across the Western Cape, embedding the spaces inside animals that inhabit each. Sanan grew up in the Himalayas, and his new works are a way to explore his new surroundings, while also bringing attention to the increasing climate change and its effects on wildlife.

“My works document landscapes seen through the species that inhabit them,” he explains. “Some of the places I have painted are familiar and close to where I live, while in others I have found myself as a momentary visitor. While these works document what I fear might be lost, they are also filled with optimism.” You can see more of Sanan’s watercolor paintings on his website and Instagram. (via Colossal Submissions)

The Humorous, Horror-Filled Illustrations of Arnus

1 Share
Using pop culture and his distinct distortion of scale, artist Arnus crafts humorous, engrossing illustrations. His self-description as an "Ugly illustrator since 1982” offers a hint at his sense of humor, moving between both terrifying and playful characters. These pop characters include Alice Cooper, Batman, and a slew of smiling demons.
