Since 2008 balloon artist Addi Somekh and photographer Charlie Eckert have traveled to 34 countries and shot over 10,000 photographs of people wearing balloon hats. After focusing more on balloon twisting than homework in college Somekh began working professionally as a balloon artist, charging wealthy executives up to $150 an hour to make elaborate balloon hats. He also donated the same skill to shelters for battered women and their children where he realized something: both groups, the rich and the poor, were laughing and enjoying his work in the same way. He had struck upon a democratic, neutralizing and powerful force of entertainment and enrichment, and he hatched a plan with his friend Charles to bring that gift to thousands of people across the world. Learn more on their website (flash). Thanks Stephanie for your submission to the Colossal curatorial contest!

Photographer Molly Strohl has dozens of amazing self-portraits over on Flickr, but these two really caught my attention. Haunting and beautiful work.

The return of db clay wallets money fashion

For most of my life a wallet was something I treasured little more than an umbrella or gym bag, that is, whatever got the job done was fine by me. Then a few years ago my wife gave me this impeccably designed Time to Swim wallet from db clay and I was floored by how beautiful and perfect it was, so much so that I’ve owned no other brand of wallet since (currently sporting this puppy). db clay is helmed by Portland-based designer and entrepreneur Garett Stenson who endured a number of hardships due to the recent financial crisis and was forced to temporarily cease wallet production, however he’s recently cranked things up again and a new series of five ultra-thin wallets called LINE 0.0 (my two favorites shown above) is now available for pre-order via a Kickstarter project. I’m not a particularly fashionable person, but I get questions about my wallet every week.
