I’m loving these liquid planets by German photographer Markus Reugels. Using large satellite photos as a backdrop and a high speed camera he captures the background’s refraction through water drops. The perfectly timed shots result in these spherical representations of the Earth, Moon and Jupiter. See much more of his work here and also here. Thanks Markus for sharing your work with Colossal!
Seed Faces are little heads made from recycled paper pulp. You put the suckers in some dirt and in a few days heirloom sprouts grow out of their friggen’ faces. If you want, you can then eat them. The whole endeavor is a little quirky and weird but, purchased! Made by Kelsey Pike at the Sustainable Papercraft Studio, available in packs of 25 for $7 or 10 for $3. See also Comic Book Farming.

Last year artist and photographer Kien Lam quit his job and bought a one-way plane ticket to London. Camera in hand he embarked on an epic backpacking journey around the world shooting over 6,000 photographs that he compiled in this lovely short video set to music by William Lam. Resisting… urge… to buy… plane tickets. Beautiful work. (via stellar, gizmodo)
I’ve been wanting to post the work of Yulia Brodskaya for almost a year and was thrilled to discover this new art piece entitled Loves Doves. Her work is unique in that it involves the placement of carefully cut, colored and bent strips of paper called quilling, giving her work a rich texture and depth. Julia was born in Moscow and now lives and works in the UK making quilled paper illustrations for some of the world’s top brands and publications. (via lustik)
I’m loving this ongoing paste-up series by street artists Ro and l’Homme Pendu. Entitled Animae Dementia (roughly “soul madness” or “animal madness”) the project features the duo installing these giant paste-ups of crazy mythical beings who seem to turn on their unwitting creators. So far works have appeared in Berlin and near Notre Dame in Paris. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
