NASA Visions of the Future

I saw these amazing space-travel posters on a friend of mine’s Facebook feed and knew that I had to spread the word a bit further. They can be found on the NASA/Jet Propulsion Laboratory website and there are fourteen of them. ‘As you look through these images of imaginative travel destinations, remember that you can be an architect of the future.’

There’s a bit more on the design of each poster available here. The NASA design team took inspiration from the iconic WPA posters from the late 30s and 40s. Despite the retro feel, these posters were created and released earlier this year.

And the best part? They are available to download and print FOR FREE! How generous is that? I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely getting a couple of these printed and framed for my walls. View and download them here.

Brian Dettmer

I saw a link to this post on my friend’s Facebook page and was intrigued. Brian Dettmer creates art using books, knives, surgical implements and tweezers! He removes pages and carves out sections of encyclopedias, medical and illustration books, and dictionaries to create sculptural works. Dettmer’s work has been exhibited and collected throughout the United States, Mexico and Europe, including in the Museum of Art and Design (NY), Museum Rijswijh (Netherlands), Wellcome Collection (England) and The Bellevue Arts Museum (WA).

Needless to say, I want one.
