Ivo van der Bent, “Think of Me” series

I really like how the isolation of the object and their illumination by the camera give the plants human characteristics- those not getting any love. The ones in our office are slowly resembling these :[

Visit the Ivo van der Bent’s to see more of his work.

 

Alice

Sawatari’s vision of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland” is truly one of the strangest, most out-there interpretations of the well-known story. Risqué in terms of its frank, nude depiction of a youthful Alice, the book’s unintentionally psychedelic tone brings to mind Monty Python, Peter Greenaway, and Vogue Bambini.

Artists Who Look Like Their Work by Paul Wagenblast

Paul Wagenblast’s portraits of artists who resemble their artwork. Clever and very true.

Ohhhh holy 7up and astral cheeseburger, i haaz! 

 

Rosalia Banet

Spanish artist Rosalia Banet shows us how to cook up healthy servings of mini-human full course meals. Her characters look so cute doing it too. 

 

Learning Landscape Math Playground

Project H designers Heleen De Goey and Dan Grossman have completed the construction of the first Learning Landscape math playground at the Kutamba School for AIDS Orphans in Southern Uganda. After nearly 3 weeks on site, they have finished the grid’s construction, and have been tirelessly working with the teachers and students on the implementation and adaptation of the games: “Around The World,” “Match Me,” and others, which teach elementary math concepts. The playground even integrates a bench system for added functionality as outdoor seating or assembly space. 

 

Amazing! Shapes and forms manifest into spatial learning tools. A nice step away from the flatness of textbooks and computer screens. If only there were more of these in the States.

 

Pierre et Gilles

So silly, you’ve got to take them seriously. This is definitely a couple steps above Sears family portraits…all glitter and magic.

Virtual Transgender Suit

Marc Owens designed the Avatar Machine, a system which replicates the aesthetics and visuals of third person gaming, allowing the user to view themselves as a virtual character in real space via a head mounted interface.
