Raul Lemesoff created this tank out of welded frame and books mounted atop a 1979 Ford Falcon. Lemesoff drives round the streets of Buenos Aires distributing free books to anyone who wants to learn. You might even call this tank a “weapon of mass information”.
Emilie Griottes created these very delicious looking Pantone Swatch Tarts. Each is so vibrant and perfectly handmade that at first I assumed Pantone had actually made these as advertisements. My mouth is watering.
Lucas Simões is an artist living and working in Sao Paulo. The majority of his works revolve around the combination of both geometric and organic shapes overlaid to create curious patterns.
In this series he invited close friends to tell him a secret as he photographed them. His sole intention was to capture each persons expression as they told the secret. At the end of the photo session he chose 10 different pictures then cut and layered between acrylic sheets.
Ian Ruhter has always been a photographer that I look up to. His work is super unique in both style & concept. His newest project Silver & Light, takes you on a journey where not very many photographers get to go.
Words from Ian’s project:
This project was created with the same spirit that america was founded on. Our intentions are to connect everyone in america through the lens of this camera and social networking sites. We can’t do this without you. We want to tell your story and show your city or town through photographs of you, and people you know. As we travel around america looking for people and places to shoot you will be able to keep track of where we are going and help us decide where we go next. Join us in our journey by liking our facebook to get yourself photographed by us.
Artist Yong Ho Ji creates these detailed and ferocious animal sculptures from recycled tires. Ji Yong-Ho has an interest in artificial mutation; each of his sculptures start in a mutated state and transform from there. His use of tires as the medium certainly express a state of mutation for these frightening creatures. To top it all off, he uses aryl gems for the animals’ eyes.

He currently lives and works in Memphis, Tennessee and Quogue, New York. His work ranges from detailed wood sculptures to drawing and painting.

Artist Eric Standley created these mind blowing 3D-like sculptures out of paper. Each appear to have been cut using a laser cutter. Much like Guy Laramee’s paper landscapes, these sculptures are extremely intricate. Pieces of paper bridge out over others while appearing deceivingly strong. In Standley’s bio it says he sleeps on rare occasions; judging by his work it’s hard to believe. His work is a testament to the great things people can create.

Jen Stark’s work has always blown my mind. The amount of time and work to create her remarkable pieces is astounding. I’d really love to know how much one of her pieces costs, because I’d like to own one.
Check out more of her work.
This series of images by Mike Campau captures a moment of time in each dancer’s maneuver. The sculptures surrounding them are their movements frozen in time. The sculptures were created in 3D, but how cool would it be to reproduce something similar with just photography?
