If it’s dinner time where you are, look away now! Don’t say we didn’t warn you! This creative fleshy intestine tents are made by Swiss artist Andra Hasler and are on display at the Corn Exchange Newbury & New Greenham Arts in Berkshire. The work is supposed to creatively explore the ‘consequences of a nuclear […]
Have you ever seen ATMs more fabulous than these GAYTMs in Sydney? I don’t think so! The ANZ Bank in Australia partnered up with TBWA/Whybin Melbourne to celebrate and show its support for the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. They commissioned artists to give ten of their ATMs some much needed makeovers, decking the machines out in colourful and bedazzled designs.
When your pizza is in need of cutting, simply hop on your bike and trample over that steaming-hot piece of delicious pie. Of course, the bike I’m talking about is this ‘fixie pizza cutter’ from ‘DOIY’. This miniature bike/pizza cutter is a fixed-gear personal cruiser, and it has handlebars, a seat, and two stainless steel […]
I must say, her sales have been pretty high as of late! 13-year old Girl Scout Danielle Lei was able to sell 117 boxes of Girl Scout cookies in 2 hours, because she followed the old business advice: ‘location, location, location’. She set up shop outside ‘The Green Cross’, a cannabis dispensary in San Francisco; and for all you innocent souls out there, that only means one thing. MUNCHIES!
‘Intimacy 2.0’ is quite like that invisibility cloak you’ve always wanted. Except it’s the only one that disappears, leaving you in your birthday suit. Dutch designer, Daan Roosegaarde, created a clothing line that becomes transparent in response to your rising heartbeat. It’s made of leather and a futuristic fabric called, smart opaque e-foils, which switches from white to transparent in an instant. ‘Intimacy 2.0’ is best worn in the bedroom, where you can flaunt the invisible clothes all you want. Though if you want to exercise butt naked in the gym, be our guest.
Ghosts is a ‘tribute to the shady, overpowering and threatening presence of guns in African cities’. Created by street artist and director Ralph Ziman, these heavily beaded and colourful AK-47s were built by Ziman and six Zimbabwean street vendors in inner-city Johannesburg. In total, 200 guns were produced and photographed, with the snaps on display at Los Angeles’ C.A.V.E. gallery.
For his Alone Time photo series, JJ Levine shot what looks like couples amidst perfectly mundane domestic settings. The twist? Every couple is really a male-and-female construct of the same person. It sounds far more gimmicky than it is. Levine himself spent years going to and fro between identifying himself as male and female, lending […]
Nobody, absolutely nobody, is immune to the power of cats. Our feline overlords hold such authority, they don’t just make nerd glasses ironic, they make them iconic. Guess there’s a reason why people with swag get upgraded to being labelled as cool cats.
Here’s a very handy infographic just in case we do bring dinosaurs back to life and make them our pets. Just in case. Artist and ‘purveyor of fine dinosaurian pet portraiture’, John Conway, has created ‘The Dinosaur Pet Guide’, which will inform you about the pleasures and pitfalls of today’s common dinosaurian pets. Here he lists down everything that’s good and bad – mostly bad – of having a big, giant lizard/bird with pointy teeth as a pet. He categorizes and colour-codes each dinosaur under ‘favourable’, ‘caution’, and ‘beware’, with the Tyrannosaurus Rex falling mostly under the red zone, naturally.
Is this the most beautiful house we’ve seen yet? When something reflects its surroundings as much as this house does, you’d better be sure you’re staying in a nice neighborhood. London-based Ekkehard Altenburger created the Mirror House in 1996 as an temporary installation, situating it in a natural lake on the Isle of Tyree in Scotland. With the Atlantic Ocean reflecting in its mirrored exteriors, it’s certainly a handsome house.
Did you know that our faces are not symmetrical? Meaning when you split a face directly in the middle (though not in a horror movie kind of way), and you fold it, the features will not line up perfectly. Unless, of course, you’re Denzel Washington. That’s why people often want their ‘good side’ taken whenever they go in front of a camera.
A couple of years ago, some scientists discovered the harp sponge or Chondrocladia lyra at 10,800-11,500 feet underwater off the coast of California. While the creature looks quite benign, thanks to the numerous barbed hooks that cover its branching parts, it is actually quite capable of snaring little crustaceans and digesting them after coating them with a layer of membrane. That’s great. Remind us never to go anywhere near water again, will you?
Redditer shystone took some old paintings of London and placed them in context against the modern cityscape of London to impressive effect. All the ten mashups are great, but the one with William Logsdail’s 1888 St Martins in the Fields painting, with these pedestrians of yonder-years in the bustling streets, really blows our minds.
Don’t know if these sculptures belong in an art gallery or a horror film. Either way, they’re poetically and horrifically beautiful. Korean artist Dongwook Lee’s takes the human form and masterfully places it in gory everyday life situations through these surreal miniatures. Some of the images provide commentary on modern medicine, like a bunch of […]
‘Upcycle Fetish’ is a project by Austrian designer Andreas Scheiger, wherein he transforms bicycle seats and handlebars into taxidermy trophies/bike racks. The project began when Scheiger took a trip to the local flea market and thought of a way where he can take recycled bicycle parts and repurpose them into something else. The result was something that parallels that of Pablo Picasso’s ‘Bull Head’.
By golly, they’ve done it! Runologist (someone who studies Runic alphabets, fyi) Jonas Nordby from the University of Oslo finally solved Jötunvillur, a 900-year old mysterious encryption that dates back to the 11th or 12th century. So what’s the message that’s tested the sands of time? Could it tell us the meaning of life? Or perhaps reveal ancient aliens?
Who knew abandoned salt mines could get so… groovy. Deep beneath the Russian city of Yekatinberg, there exists miles and miles of abandoned mines that will make you believe you’re on a trip. A different kind of trip, if you know what I mean. The following images show the salt mines’ psychedelic patterns embedded on its walls, giving you Mother Nature’s brand of rave.
Israeli-based artist Yael Mer created the drawstring Head Hand Bag in 2008 by moulding flat felt in the shape of a human face. The result is a handbag that looks like it’s harboring the unsavory contents of a chopped-off head.
Oh, what rocking graphics from Cleveland-based creative Oliver Barrett. These works juxtapose illustrations of film characters from Quentin Tarantino’s and Coen Brothers’ flicks against the rather classic movie lines they’ve uttered onscreen. Our favorite is the Pulp Fiction one with an impossibly irate Samuel L. Jackson going ‘Does he look like a bitch?’
This horse head squirrel feeder is nuttin’ to laugh about! Just look at that poor squirrel, it must be suffering from the humiliation of looking like a horse while sitting down – or standing up, rather – for breakfast!
