I was floored to discover the work of UK artist Debbie Smyth who uses hundreds of needles and delicate lengths of thread to create wall-sized installations. Via her website:

Debbie Smyth is textile artist most identifiable by her statement thread drawings; these playful yet sophisticated contemporary artworks are created by stretching a network of threads between accurately plotted pins. Her work beautifully blurs the boundaries between fine art drawings and textile art, flat and 3D work, illustration and embroidery, literally lifting the drawn line off the page in a series of “pin and thread” drawings.

Incredibly beautiful work, I would love to see these up close. Here’s a video interview with Smyth as well as a timelapse of one of her most recent installations. (via joetta maue and rhumboogie)

Although these appear to have been around for a bit, they’re certainly new to me. These pencil set illustrations were created by Melbourne-based artist Ghostpatrol and you can see the entire series of over 40 illustrations here. (via upon a fold)

ZEK is a “a collective of eight humans with strange skills, producing random and conceptual visual interventions” out of Ljubljana, Slovenia. One of their members, Miha Arnak, shot over his newly launched portfolio which included this interior design work that ZEK did for 3fs. I really enjoy the correlation of computer keys and rooms, but the Pong whiteboard is definitely my favorite. See many more shots of the interior here. (thnx, miha!)

I have probably seen hundreds of photographs made using in-camera lighting effects, some with simple shapes to typography, and even television ads. However this series of animal and dinosaur skeletons from San Diego-based photographer Darren Pearson seem to be on a wholly different level. I have no idea how he can make something so complex in a single photograph.
