Generative Art by Sergej Stoppel

Sergej Stoppel from Bergen, Norway is the guy behind LinesLab. He programmed a robot to draw with a pen. These drawings are made with one single line that goes around in a spiral. The line is drawn with a black pen that makes very thin strokes. Sergej wrote also custom software to compute the cutting patterns for photographs. If you looking for the special gift with a twist check out his Etsy shop.

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
