Enjoying this music video featuring a ukulele-playing, maraca-shaking girl who rocks out pretty hardcore with the assistance of some spectacularly fun editing. After 3:00 she goes into overdrive and it gets a little tragic. We can only hope she’ll be reassembled for future techno goodness.
The Nightmares Fear Factory in Niagara Falls, Canada struck viral advertising gold with their online photo gallery of people at the peak of absolute terror. There are literally hundreds of photos like this, family and friends tackling their loved ones, desperate screams, unbridled fear the moment they encounter some unspeakable ghoul in the depths of this haunted house. It’s the most hilarious thing I’ve ever seen. I actually think there’s art here somewhere. An enterprising gallery curator might make enormous prints of these. I’d be there opening night.

Here’s an incredible image for your day. I don’t know its origins, so if anyone cares to enlighten me I’d love details. It almost looks like artwork for a poster from a 1960s-70s book or film? (via designspiration and phonometrician)
Update: My guess was not far off. This is actually a still from a 1980s movie called Emerald Forest. (thnx, drew!)
The folks over at CollabCubed spotted these great custom lights by Christian DuCharme installed at the Lafayette Espresso Bar and Market in New York. The first is the 300 Cups Lamp made from, yes, 300 paper coffee cups while the others are made from plastic spoons and coffee filters. A really striking use of materials. See more photos here.
EVOL (previously) just published photos of a fantastic new piece, a crumbling hunk of cement slabs that he’s converted into one of his trademark urban residences using spraypaint and stencils. I envy the people who discover his work in the wild without any knowledge of the artist. How fun would it be to stumble onto this?
