Mosaïcultures Internationales de Montréal is an international mosaiculture competition held in Montréal, Canada. According to their website, mosaiculture “is a refined horticultural art that involves creating and mounting living artworks made primarily from plants with colourful foliage (generally annuals, and occasionally perennials).” The 2013 competition and exhibition opened June 22 and runs through September 29 at the Montréal Botanical Garden and features some 22,000 plant species and cultivars distributed throughout 10 exhibition greenhouses and 30 themed gardens.

Stonehenge

Oakland-based artist Milena Korolczuk is generally known for her work in film and photography but she recently set her sights on a more maleable medium: Wonder Bread. Using blobs of compressed bread the artist created surprisingly faithful interpretations of historical figures, artists, and pop culture icons which she then carefully photographed. According to Raster gallery the series was born from Korolczuk’s hands needing something to do while eating breakfast in the morning. Apparently eating wasn’t enough. See more from the series over at Raster. (via artsy)

Using the smallest components from repurposed antique pocket watches and other time pieces, New-Jersey based artist Sue Beatrice of All Natural Arts assembles curious sculptures of animals and human figures. Given the nature of watch movements I can’t help but want to see each one of these things spring to life. See much more here. (via my modern met)
