Artist Gregory Euclide 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)

Christopher Jobson

Conservationist Kerri Wolter who manages the Vulture Conservation Program in Magaliesberg, South Africa gets the opportunity to paraglide with several thousand vultures. Really incredible camera work and breathtaking shots of birds I wouldn’t normally consider so beautiful or majestic. Head over to Vimeo for the HD version which is an order of magnitude more awesome.

Incredibly detailed portraits by Zac Freeman constructed from thousands of tiny found objects. This appears to be all over the internets already, but definitely new to me.

Gabriel Dawe’s Thread Rainbows

November 19, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Thread installations by Gabriel Dawe.

Gabriel Dawe was born in Mexico City where he grew up surrounded by the intensity and color of Mexican culture. After working as a graphic designer, he moved to Montreal, Canada in 2000 following a desire to explore foreign land. In search for creative freedom he started experimenting and creating artwork, which eventually led him to explore textiles and embroidery—activities traditionally associated with women and which were forbidden for a boy growing up in Mexico. Because of this, his work is subversive of notions of masculinity and machismo that are so ingrained in his culture.

If you like this you’ll love the work of Sébastien Preschoux. (via world’s best)
