Google Doodle – Stanislaw Lem & Daniel Mroz

November 23, 2011 2 comments

Couldn’t miss this wonderful animation from today’s Google Front Page.

Honouring the 60th anniversary of the great Polish Sci Fi author Stanislaw Lem’s first book, The Astronauts. Lem also wrote Solaris, which Andrei Tarkovsky filmed in majestic style in 1972, and Steven Soderburgh and George Clooney remade a few years ago, in a surprisingly watchable version.

Daniel Mroz is a name I didn’t know, but if the rest of his work is as excellent as this, I will certainly be checking him out straight away. I love this number robot…
