Inspiration Monday 6/27

Inspiration Monday is a collection of posts IMGers have found interesting. It may be cool artwork, an interesting article, a tool to help with work or just a funny video to get your mind off of it for a while.

Good morning everyone,

Today we’re looking at some beautiful natural art, some handy tools for designers, and a laughing Chewbacca?

Jordana sent this one in.

Remember Beach by Snarkitecture? Here’s another twist on that idea. Art collective Dawn of Man used thousands of Ping Pong balls floating on a pool, with cool projection mapping. Explore their site, there are lots of videos with some very cool ways of presenting their art.

This one goes out to John Bennett, our resident roller coaster fan. This is Valvran, the world’s tallest and fastest roller coaster at Cedar Point in Ohio.  223 Feet tall, a 213 foot drop, 75 mph, all in under 2 minutes.
