Graphic artworks in blue and red by Japanese designer Haruka Aramaki.
To bring the world closer to the live action at the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships that took place in St. Moritz, Switzerland, UNIT9 programmed autonomous robots to craft messages from fans in the snow. The result was an alpine artwork masterpiece – the size of 16 soccer fields. See the video of the amazing process!
I wish I could personally experience this amazing installation in Lake Iseo, Italy by 81-year-old Bulgarian-American artist Christo, but unfortunately it was on until July 3rd. The artist created The Floating Piers, a long walkway made of vivid yellow fabric on top of floating cubes. Visitors were able to experience this work of art by walking on it from Sulzano to Monte Isola and to the island of San Paolo. “Those who experienced The Floating Piers felt like they were walking on water – or perhaps the back of a whale,” said Christo.
Is it a frog, or is it 5 humans painted to look like a frog? Look closely in these animal photographs, and you may notice that they are not actually animals, but humans in incredible body-paint. Inspired by nature, musician and body-painting artist Johannes Stoetter creates amazingly detailed paintings of animals on the bodies of living models. Each of these take up to 8 hours of work to complete, but also need up to 5 months of planning. Unbelievable.

I just love JR‘s installations. For the last years, the artist’s large-scale photographic print projects have been popping out in public spaces all around the world. His latest public artwork is in Paris: He just finished a large photographic piece that wraps the glass pyramid outside the Louvre Museum, causing it to disappear against the museum’s facade.
I find the work of artist Michael Johansson so strange and wonderful. He creates neat, color co-ordinated installations that are like “real life Tetris”. Johansson uses unwanted objects from flea markets, including computers, keyboards, suitcases, furniture and cars(!) to create compact colorful blocks, installing them in public areas or interesting gaps.
Can you imagine real dandelions emitting light?
Fragile Future III by Studio Drift is a modular system combining nature and technology. The three-dimensional bronze electrical circuits contain luminous dandelion seed heads and bolt together to form a power circuit overgrowing walls, floors and ceilings, forming sculptures and chandeliers.
Very delicate and beautiful result.
Amazing surreal images by Korean artist JeeYoung Lee.
For each of her photographs she spends many weeks to turn her small studio space in a new colorful installation. Everything you see is made by her and there is no photo manipulation.
Probably influenced by the American photographer and installation artist of the 90s, Sandy Skoglund.
