Fairytales Come To Life In New Papercut Light Boxes by Hari & Deepti

Published by:

Deepti Nair and Harikrishnan Panicker, two Colorado-based artists who create stunning works of illuminated fairytale paper art, are back with a new wondrous series of images, fittingly named “Oh, The Places You Will Go!”

The artist-couple’s work (which we wrote about previously) inspires images of ancient legends or of enterprising, futurist explorers, which makes sense, because they were initially inspired by Balinese shadow puppets.

They achieve their extraordinary atmospheric effect by backlighting their framed paper artwork with strips of colored LED lights. The layers of paper grow darker and darker as they grow further and further from the light, giving them their strikingly dark and layered appearance.

The Bottle Boys Perform a Cover of Bruno Mars’ Song ‘Locked Out of Heaven’ Using Beer Bottles as Instruments

Published by:

The five Denmark-based members of The Bottle Boys (see previously) recently performed a cover of the song “Locked Out of Heaven” by Bruno Mars using beer bottles as instruments.

The song we chose to play is “Locked Out of Heaven” by Bruno Mars. The song is just perfect for bottles, because it has very distinctive instrumental parts (the bassline, the second lead voice and of course the MPC-driven “bended” sample in the original version. Just perfect.

The original song for the sake of comparison:
