If sculptures of chubby babies making weird faces give you the creeps (it’s a thing), look away now, and hope this art doesn’t appear in your nightmares. These glossy porcelain sculptures are created by Hong Kong artist Johnson Tsang, and he refers to these pieces as ‘his babies’. Since 1993, Tsang’s work has been exhibited […]
Nina Röder’s photography project Mutters Schuhe (Mother’s Shoes) depicts herself, mother and grandmother wearing the same outfit, in the same pose, in the same setting. All three sets are ‘based on pivotal moments or memories from Röder’s mother’s life’. For instance, the clothes that they are wearing belonged to her mum and ‘reference moments like Röder’s mother’s […]
India has a wet problem. And it has nothing to do with their droughts. Years of campaigns, big and small, have failed to stop grown men from urinating in public at anywhere and any time they feel like it. Even setting up more public urinals and imposing huge fines didn’t stop the random splattering, so […]
Elsa might not have wanted to build a snowman, but Tim Burton sure did – or at least the young illustrator who drew in his iconic style. Japanese artist Yoko just re-imagined Disney’s Frozen as a Tim Burton film, giving Elsa, Anna, Sven, Hans, and Kristoff, a very dark makeover. In this short exclusive interview, Yoko talks more about herself and her beloved series. [Read our original post about her here.]
We’re a hardened bunch in the Lost At E Minor office (ok, ok, granted, we do run the odd cute animal post every now and then), but even we were deeply moved when watching this video about Melvin, who suffers from Alzheimer’s, and his heartfelt determination to buy a bunch of roses for his beautiful wife Doris, who has taken care of him for him for so many years.
This starling set of ‘photos’ by French photographer Alain Delorme were painstakingly composed from stills of plastic bags that he duplicated multiple times to achieve the result of mimicking a flock of birds gracefully souring through the sky. As he told Wired Magazine: ‘I have always found plastic bags across my path, no matter where I travelled in the world. This plastic bag could be anywhere – even hanging on a tree. I thought that it had to fly to land there.
For any number of reasons, ranging from a too large stomach (her words, not ours), and a long standing desire to be a nun (huh?!), these women have literally never seen their own vaginas. Never! So, of course, YouTube sensation DaveyWavey decided to, erm, introduce them to it. In the nicest possible way. The results were pretty fascinating (and amusing) to see, as this video below reveals.
If you could only master the very basics in ballet, not to worry. Many of us will never perform as professionals, but those with enough talent to twirl and spin and perform, err, seven double and one triple fouettés en tournant are probably dancing their way onto a stage near you. PostTV has put all our half-second tippy-toe dances to shame and found some of the most talented ballet dancers around.
Forget about the Rolex and the grill. I have a feeling it’s gonna be all about the 24k gold mountain bike soon. Because, when you’ve got to impress the world with your material possessions, nothing comes close to an obnoxious, yet quite pretty looking, gold bicycle. The bike is created by The House of Solid […]
19-year-old Chantelle Brown-Young may just be the world’s first and only model with vitiligo, a condition that causes depigmentation of the skin. You may have also heard that one of the world’s greatest pop icon – Michael Jackson – had it. Vitiligo is caused by a malfunctioning immune system. It has no cure to date, and affects less than one percent of the world’s population.
A few years ago, I accidentally sold six Beatles records (in mint condition) for $1 each at a garage sale. I’ve always wondered what might’ve happened had I not sold them, along with all the other records I sold that day. Maybe I’d have a gigantic vinyl collection. Maybe, just maybe, I’d have a record […]
The number one most addicting and gratifying thing to book lovers everywhere: the scent of old books. Now, thanks to Minneapolis-based Etsy seller Frostbeard Studio, you can have that wonderful aroma in scented candle form. In this exclusive interview, the couple behind Frostbeard, Roxie and Tom, talk about how their scented candles business started and how they developed scents such as ‘Old Books’, ‘Book Cellar’, and ‘Oxford Library’. [Read our original post about them here.]
The long wait is finally over, internet. ‘Keyboard Cat’, the talented feline who became famous seven years ago for playing the piano – and in the process, getting 35 million views on YouTube. 35 freakin’ million! That’s like the entire population of Canada watching a single cat video!
If you’re into Lego and you’re into towers and you’re into breaking records, this article’s for you. This week there was a record broken in Budapest for the world’s largest Lego tower. It’s been ‘certified as the world’s tallest toy brick structure by Guinness World Records’ and comes in at a staggering 34.76 metres.
Once upon a time in Milan, there lived a photographer and illustrator by the name of Giulia Pex, who added whimsical elements to her daily life by illustrating fictional characters in photos. Most mornings she’ll have cute woodland creatures and a fairy godmother watching over her as she sleeps. Sometimes she’ll take a ride with Prince Charming on his dashing bike stallion. Her dad also joins the fantastical fray, adding superhero references to his daily chores.
Heavens to Murgatroyd! It looks like Mother Nature is tidying up in Montrose, Colorado. Nursing professor Cathy Hartt was out taking her dog for a walk in Buckley Park when she stumbled upon this spectacular sight: a sheet of snow folding itself into a blanket-like form after riding a slide.
Take a look at these illustrations. Now take another look. The images by Pawel Kuczynski are delightfully intricate in their meaning, so much so that they keep giving every time you look. While the polish artist’s style remains the same, his messages are as diverse as they are powerful.
This is a video of Whisper, a 4-year old miniature Australian cattle dog attempting the first ever doggy wingsuit flight with his human, base jumper Dean Potter. Called ‘When Dogs Fly’, the Adidas-sponsored feature shows the canine inside Potter’s backpack, with his head popped out, as they both lunge into the valley below. They both land safely, with Whisper jumping for joy as he comes out of the backpack.
Infuriated by the lack of manliness in today’s yoga accessory designs, San Francisco-based entrepreneur and yogi Dan Abramson decided to add some machismo to the practice by coming up with his own line of mat bags: The ‘Brogamats’.
All of the various religions on earth have their holy men, but the ascetic sadhus of India are among the most extreme in their practices and acts of self-denial. Brooklyn-based photographer Joey L brings us a new series focussing on the Aghori, a group of hindu priests who precide over the rituals of the dead […]
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
