You might remember Berlin-based photographer Bjoern Ewers for his role in art directing the Inside Instruments project for the Berlin Philharmonic that went viral a few months ago. His latest work involves a series of bubble photographs titled Orbital that capture the hypnotizing whorls of colorful soap film in contrast with a stark black background. If you’re interested in prints he has several over on Artflakes. (via behance)

The art of street photography has always fascinated me. It’s such a strange mixture of skill, perseverance, editing, and even bravery, yet still relies on these incredible coincidences that result in once-in-a-lifetime photographs. One great resource for street photography is iN-PUBLiC, a collective of 21 photographers including Jesse Marlow, Matt Stuart, Nick Turpin, and Nils Jorgensen among many others. They have a fantastic blog (RSS) you should subscribe to and a wonderful picture of the month gallery that goes all the way back to December 2001. Have fun!

I just posted about the paper birds and animals of Diana Beltran Herrera a few weeks ago, but these new bird anatomy sculptures made with cut paper and vinyl film deserve some special attention. See more over on Flickr.

Brazilian-born Brooklyn-based artist Vik Muniz (previously) has a number of new works on display at Galerie Xippas in Paris as part of his Pictures of Magazine 2 series. The nine pieces are recreations of famous paintings by Van Gogh, Manet, Cézanne and other artists using cut and torn fragments from popular magazines. I’ve seen a number of works similar to these where multiple components of trash or other objects are organized to create works by old masters, but Muniz seems to take things a step further into another level of perfection and detail. Muniz was also just in Rio where he completed a massive trash installation depicting Guanabara Bay. (via ARTchipel)

In October of last year street artist Megx converted a bridge in Wuppertal, Germany into a giant Lego structure using colored panels that create the illusion of being the underside of Lego bricks. The bridge itself is part of the Wuppertal Bewegung e.V., an old train line that has been converted to a pedestrian and cycle path. How great is this? There’s been no shortage of giant toys and games in the streets lately. See much more on his website. Photos above courtesy Lukas Power and Rolf Dellenbusch. (via kastormag)

Berlin firm ART+COM just completed this stunning new kinetic sculpture in Terminal 1 of Changi Airport in Singapore. Kinetic Rain consists of two sets of 608 suspended raindrops made from lightweight aluminum covered in copper which are raised and lowered in a 15-minute computationally designed choreography controlled from motors embedded in the ceiling. ART+COM created a similar though somewhat smaller piece for the BMW Museum in 2008. (via hungeree)
