El Refugio

A place on the web for escapism.

Tuesday, March 1, 2011


Sorry, I couldn't resist the attention grabber that sexual innuendo brings. Drag your mind out of the gutter, this is still a blog about art-minded topics.
Maybe it's that random serendipity you can get so easily on the web. Surfing presents many opportunities for distraction, and research can be boggled by a common word.  Search engines ruled by advertising, rather than utility, are the norm. We all know about finding the things you're NOT searching for. So when I found this on "Oddity Central",  I was pretty happy to find something I wasn't searching for. Really.

Please click over to Freshome's article, Drilling Thousands of Screws for Unusual 3D Mural Portraits,
to see the rest of their photos of Myers' screwwork.

Too Cool!

 Andrew Myers creates these portraits using a new medium to give the look and feel of 3-D: screws! 7 to 10,000 of them! I'd also like to see future works that maybe aren't portraits...
