It’s extremely rare I discover abstract artwork that fires the little synapses in my brain that cause my holy-shit-must-post-now reflex. I generally need something pretty concrete for my brain to lock onto: a face, a concept, or a process. The mixed media work of Gregory Euclide is a complete exception to the rule. Gregory fuses acrylic, biodegradable film, canvas, wood, eucalyptus, ferns, foam, moss, paper, pencil, photo transfer, sponge, and a multitude of other materials into miniature organic and urban landscapes, each object leading purposefully and delicately to the next. Wow. A couple thousand more images via Flickr. (via arrested motion)

One of my earliest memories in life is driving through the Texas hill country with my father to a bee supply store. I was maybe six and we’d spent the better part of a month constructing two beehives from scratch, painting them, nailing together frames, and wiring the wax sheets into place. On the way home it was my job to hold a small wooden box we’d just purchased that contained a queen bee and a few drones. At the store the man behind the counter said the queen could lay thousands of eggs in a day, a number I could hardly comprehend. So the entire hive, thousands of bees, gallons of honey, was all to come from this one tiny bee the size of a jelly bean. How awesome.

The photos above are taken by two guys in Vancouver who are keeping bees in the yard behind their home where it sounds like they may have been evicted. Curious if it was because of the bees? Many more photos on Behance, and their blog.

The Vegetal Screen DIVA is a wall-mounted garden for inside your home that accommodates up to 28 plants. Although the site says it’s patented I think it’s still in prototype mode. (via notcot)

Algaerium

British architect and meteorologist Marin Sawa builds sculptures out of farmed algae and assorted chemistry equipment.

Algaerium is textile-inspired design for ‘cultivating’ and producing green energy in style. It creates a domesticated mode of algaculture for our urban lifestyles in the space of interior to exterior. This means it acts as aquariums for algae and the ‘living’ design serves as a new type of plants designed with a new characteristic to visualize photosynthesis through colour change.
