Welsh-born artist and photographer Olsen Zander has been wrapping trees in white fabric around the UK for the better part of a decade. In this series entitled Tree, Line, Zander uses the fabric to reveal the horizon lines as they disappear behind the surface of trees. Really amazing work. If you liked this, also check out the mirrored tree installations of Joakim Kaminsky and Maria Poll. (via it’s nice that)

Italian street artist Blu has completed a new politically charged mural on the streets of Buenos Aires. The mural shows an enormous crowd, their eyes blindfolded with a ribbon of fabric colored like the Argentinian flag and behing them looms a dark, suited figure wearing a presidential sash of the same design.

For his latest exhibition at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, German artist Wolfgang Laib poured over 30,000 piles of rice and seven piles of pollen to create one of his largest installations ever entitled Unlimited Ocean. Laib worked with several SAIC alumni during a ten day residency in October to pour each small mound resulting in an enormous grid that covers much of the expansive Sullivan North Gallery in downtown Chicago. The work will be on display to the public through December 23, 2011. Photographs by James Prinz courtesy SAIC.

Just spotted this wonderfully crafty stop motion piece from director Kevin Parry that follows the history of the world from the big bang through, well, I don’t want to ruin it. Lovely work. (via the awesomer)

New to me, this great sculpture by Tom Frantzen in Brussels, Belgium. The piece was actually completed in 1985 outside the Communauté Française building and depicts a young man emerging from the sewer to grab the leg of a police officer.
