3D scanning and printing has changed the way medicine is practiced and businesses are run, but some of the less life-altering things it does are no less awesome. Take Tom Burtonwood’sFolium, a book of printed “pages” that each contain a different piece of art you can actually feel with your hands.

Burtonwood scanned nine pieces of art and sculpture, ranging from 664 BC to the 20th century, at the Chicago Institute of Art. Using Autodesk’s 123D Catch and Recap photogrammetry, he was able to capture and the subtle topography of each piece in model space, then print them as pages for the book. There’s a relief of Buddha’s Footprints from second century India. A portrait of George Washington from the 19th century. Even a nod to Chicago’s own architectural heritage—the last page contains a relief of a panel designed by Louis Sullivan.

The project is made even cooler by the fact that the cover and table of contents is written in braille, so the visually impaired can enjoy these works of art by feeling them. The entire project has been released under a Creative Commons License, which means that you can head over toThingiverse and print your own copy right now. Because the way the book is designed, the pages can also be removed from the binding—so you could, say, make a cast of each piece using the negative space on the back of the page.

Vladimir Putin, Vladimir Yevtushenkov: FILE - In this Tuesday, May 5, 2009 file photo, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, left, and Russian tycoon Vladimir Yevtushenkov, owner of Sistema Holding, during their meeting in Moscow. A billionaire Russian tycoon was placed under house arrest Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2014, in a money-laundering case that has drawn comparisons with a government crackdown on Russia’s Yukos oil company more than a decade ago. The Investigative Committee, Russia’s top investigative agency, said that Vladimir Yevtushenkov, the head of Sistema holding company, was suspected of involvement in a money-laundering scheme involving oil assets in the province of Bashkiria. Sistema owns the Bashneft oil company, which is based in Bashkiria.

For centuries, these pieces of art have stayed cloistered away inside of museums. Burtonwood is bringing them out for us to actually touch (the horror!) and in the case of the blind, perhaps experience for the first time. [Tom Burtonwood; via Boing Boing]

Photos On My Wall

Author -Carole Parkes

Photos on my wall. Photos on my wall.

Photos On My Wall

Many photos on my wall

Those happy, smiling faces,

Children young and Oh! So small

Memories, no time erases

***

Babes in arms, cuddled and kissed,

First ice cream, and days at school,

Loved ones departed, so missed,

Yet others sit around a pool.

***

Looking at those pictures now,

Brings back those days of leisure,

Wedding gowns, “I do” endow,

You, with all my worldly treasure

***

An empty space, what was there?

See, it’s dropped behind the frame.

Gaze upon a face so dear,

That man so loved, I took his name.

****

Many photos on my wall,

Reminders of all that’s passed,

Even if I lose recall

They’ll prompt, help memory last.

***

How often do you visit a city for a business trip or vacation, and walk away thinking, “Gee, I’d really like to live here!”?

So what makes a small city great? Primarily, it’s institutions. “The cities at the top of the list were often home to a major institution like a university, hospital or state capital,” says Matt Carmichael, Livability’s editor. “Institutions like that help these smaller cities compete in terms of sports, culture, jobs and entertainment.”Here are the top 10 best medium-sized cities to live in the US in 2015 according to Livability.com.

1) Madison, Wisconsin

2) Rochester, Minnesota

3) Arlington, Virginia

4) Boulder, Colorado

5) Palo Alto, California

6) Berkeley, California

7) Santa Clara, California

8) Missoula, Montana

9) Boise, Idaho

10) Iowa City, Iowa

8:00pm Thoughts: AFTER EIGHT DINNER MINTS

Constantly, I look for you               
among the thousand breezes
that pass by my face
interlaced in shadows and sunlight
the forest could be your hiding place
that hidden cove on some exotic island
deep blue waters where dolphins dance
an oasis near a Sultan’s paradise
no, it must be with the stars at night
the falling ones that catch my sight…

So I’m suppose to be getting in the bath but I just hung up the phone with Wayne I’m actually angry at him
I have these feelings and they aren’t good/ I’m not sure how any of this happen/ he’s like I can’t ask him what to call my art show why not/ why can’t I ask him isn’t he a friend?/ but what is it?/ is he scared I might get big off of it and not credit him? Who knows I have no idea but that’s it no more questioning people things that have to do with my craft yeah I know//

I hate fake deep people/ or should I say the pretender? The ones who act like they’re into art or the wanna be book worms. All the fake hipster shit has got to stop. The norm is still in you know just be you.

You’re wondering…
