Peter Dahmen is a German artist. He is in fact a Paper Architect. His love for pop-up came about from his need to catch public transport with a major work while he was studying graphic design. I am still amazes me how our lives can change direction because of the most random things.
Peter manages to capture movement and shape in his dynamic paper works and he has managed to turn his love of pop-up into a full time career.
Here is a short documentry on Peter and how he got into paper architecture. His work and attention to detail is amazing.

This gorgeous video combines a bunch of science with beautiful flat design (all the rage right now).
Kurzgesagt is an AWESOME youtube channel and their German name literally means "in a nutshell". They are a group of designers, journalists and musicians on a mission to make science beautiful, producing videos explaining things like space, time and evolution. Basically they are flipping awesome and you should sit down with a cup of [insert preferred beverage here] and binge watch the lot.
These illustrations are just so beautiful and simple. Often it's much harder to simplify an image rather than get caught up in the detail - the minimalist artists dilemma.
Back when I was studying science I was appalled by the boring way information was communicated, but in the last five or so years the tables have turned. Access to technology has opened up the door for wonderful creative people to share science with us all.
According to Wikipedia the definition of a scientist is "A scientist, in a broad sense, is one engaging in a systematic activity to acquire knowledge" therefore, anyone who has a hunger for knowledge is indeed a scientist.
I LOVE SCIENCE and I LOVE ILLUSTRATION. This video is a perfect combination of the two... and we can all learn something while witnessing some stop motion beauty.
It's amazing the great things you find on twitter :)
