Michæl Paukner

Austrian graphic designer Michæl Paukner is one of those designers that does a great job of merging design and science. His Flickr is filled with a bunch of amazing posters will illustrate complex subjects like The Antikythera Mechanism or the theory of crustal displacement, but there are some more straightforward pieces as well.

The two I picked out were The Dymaxion Map, a recreation of Buckminster Fuller’s map of the earth, and The Golden Mean:

“The Golden Mean was used in the design of sacred buildings in ancient architecture to produce spiritual energy that facilitated connectivity with spiritual realms through prayer. Our reality is very structured, and indeed Life is even more structured. This is reflected though Nature in the form of geometry. Geometry is the very basis of our reality, and hence we live in a coherent world governed by unseen laws. These are always manifested in our world. The Golden Mean governs the proportion of our world and it can be found even in the most seemingly proportion-less (active) living forms.”

    If there’s something I like of art is to be something more than just contemplative, and in some way depends of the interaction with the people like the first peace way better. The fact that it needs to be cut and glue it makes it way more interesting!
