Reblogged from N. Miami:
An animation of "nanoscale planetary gear." I don't pretend to understand what's going on here, but it's beautiful! If you'd like to read more about it and see some pix that look remarkably like textiles, check this out.
Along the same lines, but bigger (much bigger), here's a picture of a staircase I took at Winterthur a few years ago.
Over the next few days I'll be retrieving some more of these photos from my archives, as I await more loom parts. Maybe before the equinox I'll be dobby weaving again! Keeping my fingers crossed.
