I know people like to watch YouTube videos when they are bored, but I head over to Vimeo to watch videos when I am feeling uninspired. While studying for exams over the best several weeks, I stumbled across a lot of cool videos there, but this project by artist Melanie Hoff is by far my favorite. Using 15,000 volts of electricity, which she sent pulsing through a large panel of plywood, Hoff was able to create a complex fractal pattern in wood burns. The result is both mesmerizing and beautiful.
