Circles of Influence – Mural at Makerhaus Seattle 2013. Art by Scott Fuller. The Circles of Influence mural was painted at Makerhaus, a membership based creative workshop designed to empower makers of all sorts.

The idea evolved from the individual working hands to highlighting the community that comes from working in a collaborative environment. Video after the jump!

The discovery of interactive pen displays however, offers me new horizons and now I do not impose any constraint in terms of pictures conception. Mixing styles and techniques is my way.” – DZO
“‘Black Hole’ is a series of images, which shows paint modeled by centripetal force. The setup is very simple: Various shades of acrylic paint are dripped onto a metallic rod, which is connected to a drill. When switched on, the paint starts to move away from the rod, creating these amazing looking structures.” – Fabian Oefner
