Douglas Coupland’s everywhere is anywhere is anything is everything

For more photos and videos from everywhere is anywhere is anything is everything, follow @vanartgallery on Instagram and browse the couplandvan hashtag.

Douglas Coupland's show at the Vancouver Art Gallery (@vanartgallery) is highly interactive. “It’s creatively satisfying to crowdsource objects,” the artist says. “In this show I have works made from crowd-sourced Lego, chewing gum, plastic bottle lids and cigarette foil. Anything can be beautiful.”

Visitors to the show have been encouraged to take pictures and share them with the #CouplandVan hashtag. “Much of the show is based on how we’re all collectively changing the way we see the world,” Douglas says. “Not allowing smart-phone photography seemed ridiculous. People focus in on what suits them the most. It’s interesting for me to see which slogans in the Slogan Room are posted the most.”

everywhere is anywhere is anything is everything closes on September 1.

Get going, though - it ends on Monday. Well worth it.

Math Is Pretty

Last week I met Tom Beddard, a physicist turned web developer turned artist (and friendly guy). He creates 3D fractals — those recursive shapes that infinitely repeat at every scale. They’re based on simple math, but they can create some amazing images.

Says Beddard: “I don’t seek any new mathematical insight into the resulting structures, it’s a purely aesthetic pursuit to scratch a creative itch. Part of the fascination with fractal exploration is when … amazing and completely unexpected structures can pop out and surprise you.”

Some of the fractals look like Gothic architecture. Some of them look like alien seed pods. All of them are mesmerizing. You can see lots more on Beddard’s flickr page. You can actually fly through the fractals and see them morphing in these videos. And now, thanks to a new app called Frax that Beddard helped develop, you can make fractals of your very own.

The Flickr link is wrong, so here you go: https://www.flickr.com/photos/subblue/
