Just when you think the timeless charm of hand-painted photography has become all too familiar and dull, Shae DeTar‘s take on the age-old practice will entrance you with all the trippy splashes of colour and hypnotic rainbow swirls of her prints. At first glance, some of Shae’s photographs look like they were taken with a Kodak Aerochrome, an infrared film reputed for its purplish hues and intense saturation.
Buying a house near the ocean is so 2013. This year it’s all about the house suspended over the ocean. Because if you’re shelling out big bucks for the view, you might as well get the best you can, right? Now, this home is just a conceptual property for now, but with stunning views of the ocean and those magnificent cliffs along the Great Ocean Road, how could you not want this to go ahead?
All-egg ‘desserts’ aren’t my thing, but they might be yours. And if they’re your thing, then you’ll be super impressed with this Japanese-designed egg-spinning dessert maker. The Okashina Tamago Mawashite Mawashite Marugoto Purin, or, awkwardly translated as ‘Pudding whole turn turn funny eggs‘ machine takes a single egg at a time, which is then spun around for about 2 minutes.
Nothing’s more relaxing than lying back on a hammock. But add water to the hammock’s design and you’ve got the most epic bath tub, ever. Designed by London-based Splinter Works, this 2.7-metre long tub, known as the Vessel, is suspended in the air just like a hammock and releases water through the base into a floor drain.
Oh man, this is the stuff of nightmares. If stumbling upon a spider on a wall sends a shiver up your spine, then this video panning across the skies showing spiders hanging here, there and everywhere will probably leave you sleepless for weeks. It was shot in Santo Antônio da Platina, a town in the […]
Well this billboard takes the cake! Located at Westfield London at Shepherd’s Bush, this billboard took over seven hours to complete and, you guessed it, is made entirely out of cake-13,360 individual cakes, to be exact.
Whenever you step on a LEGO brick, exact sweet, sweet revenge by taking a bite out of said LEGO brick and enjoy its chocolate-y body slowly melting in your mouth. Who’s in pain now?! Created by designer and illustrator Akihiro Mizuuchi, the chocolate LEGO bricks can both be played with and eaten.
By giving your car keys a home – or a garage, rather – you can say goodbye to days you have to frantically turn your house upside-down looking for them. Designer Andre Rumann has come up with a cute key rack that looks like a miniature wooden garage, wherein you park the accompanying model car key chain, ensuring its safety – not to mention your sanity. The car models include a VW bus, a Porsche, a Karmann Ghia, a Beetle, and a Jaguar E-Type.
Your dream of becoming a mad scientist is now one step closer, thanks to illustrator Ed Harrington’s IKEA-style instruction manuals on how to make movie monsters. Inspired by the wordless, line-drawn instruction manuals of the Swedish furniture company, Harrington illustrates the origins – and assembly process – of well-known bad guys like Alien, Jason Voorhees, and Cenobites.
Memo: if you’re going to hang around an exploding volcano, be sure to dress appropriately for the occasion. Explorer, documentary maker, and fearless adventurer, George Kourounis, took on the Marum crater in the archipelago of the South Pacific’s Vanuatu, filming the dramatic happenings of an inferno lava lake and getting, in his own words, ‘a window into hell’. [Watch this remarkable video here!]
If you think you have problems getting to work in the mornings, you haven’t heard this. Avtar Singh Mauni from Patiala, Northern India spends six hours a day getting his turban ready before he goes to his local temple. And the 60-year-old holy man may be on the brink of a world record, thanks to the 100-pound turban he puts on daily, a hefty and elaborate hair piece measuring 2,115 feet (about 645 meters) when unwrapped, which is the same length as 13 Olympic-sized swimming pools.
I hate Post-its as they were often scrawled with ‘I want this by 10 am tomorrow’ when they arrived at my work desk, stubbornly stuck on top of a stack of files. If only they came in the form of Akira Nagoya’s beautifully cut artwork. The China-Born Japanese artist is a kakmikiri (loosely translated as paper cutting) master, and many of his designs are inspired by centuries-old imagery, such as the phoenix, or nature’s flowers.
It’s been 20 years already?! Boy, are we getting old! To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the 1994 film, ‘The Little Rascals’, Los Angeles-based production company ’22 Vision’ reunited the cast for one nostalgic photoshoot. ‘The message behind the shoot is embracing who you are’, Brian Pocrass, 22 Vision’s founder, tells HuffPost Entertainment. ‘Obviously getting […]
Argentina-based artist Martin Feijoo takes cloud spotting to the next level by drawing on them to make them look entirely something else. On his website, ‘Shaping Clouds Project’, he posts illustrations of dinosaurs, birds, and spaceships, which were all inspired by the cloud formations he’s seen in his travels.
Will Reed was so fed up with his teenage kids not pulling their weight at home that he decided to do something about it. And where else would you turn in the digital age to get your message across than YouTube? His very first instructional video (which we hope is one of many) is how to change the toilet roll in the bathroom. Simple, right? [watch the instructional video here]
I’ve seen many cool conference tables in my time (I lie, I haven’t), but this one has got to be the best. Who even thinks of these things? Southern California-based company MotoArt, that’s who. This company designed an epic conference table out of a Boeing 747 jumbo jet engine.
This has to be the most brutal prank we’ve seen. Well, this or the undead elevator girl. But that’s another story altogether. For this prank, the jokers at SA Wardega dressed a cute puppy up as a giant mutant spider and then went to great lengths to unleash (gettit?) the ‘spider’ in a variety of scenarios on the unsuspecting public. Terrifying? TERRIFYING! We aged 5 years just watching it. [This is officially the most viral post we've run on Lost At E Minor]
Remus Tiplea has a special talent for capturing the beauty in almost everything. This amateur photographer from Romania only started shooting back in 2009, and since then, has taken on some extraordinary subjects, one being the majestic damselflies.
Tindafella is what we’ve all been waiting for. Making fun of Tinder profiles that try a little too hard for attention, Jarrod Allen decided to start replicating profile pictures on the app. And he does it with such style and finesse, it’s hard to look away from these cheeky pics.
Why bother traveling light years to see the far regions of space when you can enjoy it from the comforts of your own bed? Etsy store ‘CBedroom’ printed out these out-of-this-world galactic quilt covers and pillow cases. The collection comes in seven designs, with each priced at $148.
