Simon Ouwerkerk’s dense sculptures are floating masses of plastic children toys and action figures that come together like Voltron to create something completely anew. Morphing, flying, and swirling in swarms, these piles of plastic are always in flux with a futuristic destination unknown.

Documentary Watch: Caine’s Arcade Raises over $114,000 In Just a few days!

By now most of you have seen or heard about this brilliant documentary by LA filmmaker Nirvan Mullick about a 9 year old boy named Caine and his amazing incredible DIY arcade. Stuck at this fathers office on the weekends, Caine took his boredom and turned it into one of the most awe inspiring arcades I’ve ever seen, completely made out of discarded cardboard and packing tape. Unfortunately Caine rarely got any foot traffic in his little shop of fun. That is until Nirvan came by  and decided to share this little boys inspiring story with the world. With a few Facebook invites and some help from strangers Nirvan managed to create an amazing day for Caine by way of a surprise flash mob.

What’s more amazing about this story is that since the videos launch just a few days ago Nirvan has helped raise over $114,000 towards a college fund for Caine. Watch this video, get inspired to do better, and get off your ass and make something. There’s no more excuses now that you have seen the amazing things that a 9 year old boy with no money and a bunch of creativity can accomplish! (via colossal,mefi)

Portraits Created From Poetry

Jamie Poole collage1 Jamie Poole collage2Jamie Poole collage4

Artist Jamie Poole has taken a dramatic turn in his art recently.  Majoring in Design Poole has primarily worked in landscapes.  However, to create a portrait of Sophie, pictured above, he used a medium tied to her identity: English literature.  Poole uses strips of poetry to create a unique collage.  Words wrap around eyes and slide down noses to create incredibly realistic images.  The pieces are particularly large compared to the intricately placed lines.  Regarding this, Poole says:

“The repetition of collaging each line of text onto the board to make the image becomes similar to meditating in my view.  It also means I can really focus my attention on each individual area of the picture to really look closely at the subject and learn about her.”[via]

Evelyn Bencicova’s Imagery Blends Surreal Beauty With Supernatural Unease

Natalia Evelyn Bencicova is a Slovakian photographer who creates works of surreal beauty and supernatural unease. Characterized by dark, sterile rooms built of tile and cement, her settings are eerily reminiscent of abandoned hospitals and vacant catacombs. The models are washed-out and almost alien in their beauty, contorting as they pose nude, or draped in cloth with additional limbs that reach from underneath. They appear human, but also inhuman — and no better is this obscuration of humanity demonstrated than in the images portraying piles of nude bodies sprawling on the floors, crawling up against the walls, or aligning themselves in fleshly, geometric structures. With their faces obscured by torsos and furniture, they seem engaged (or possessed by) a strange ritual that is more about the multitude than the individual.

Part of what makes Bencicova’s work so powerful and provocative are the environments and quasi-theatrical narratives she creates. The hospital-like settings foster an atmosphere that is unsettling for the psyche; writhing and embracing on cold floors or groping at sterile furniture, the characters resemble ghosts in an abstract, emotional ballet. In some of the images, the bodies look like they have been stowed away and forgotten, and are struggling to survive. But in all of Bencicova’s works, there is a haunting magnificence, a reverence for the strength of the human body, and an “opening up” of beauty that extends into the alien and absurd.

Bencicova’s Tumblr is a stunning journey into her darkly alluring and innovative worlds. You can also see more of her work on Behance, and be sure to follow her on Facebook
