Smoking Kills. Outsource it.

roykende_medium2

In a world in which almost everything can be done by machines, especially the dangerous, risky jobs, why still bother taking the health risks of smoking cigarettes yourself? Wouldn’t it be better to outsource that too? This genius machine, made by the Norwegian artist Kristoffer Myskja can be your solution. And the best thing aboutContinue Reading

Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust

quick sand 4

Violence and patience: an interesting paradox. The wish to destroy something often translates in powerful, explosive gestures. In this case the Dutch artist Leon de Bruijne found a surprisingly meditative way to reduce wooden furniture into dust and dust only. In Dutch the words for violence (geweld) and great (geweldig) are, as you can see, veryContinue Reading

Tasty Cubes

food-cubes-raw-lernert-sander-volkskrant-6

Right here. This is what I mean. This is the kind of work I can’t keep my eyes off of. And the funny thing is that it was only after having looked at all of these beautiful cubes individually, that I started to read more about it and figured outContinue Reading

500 Years of NYC Skyline, In One Time-Lapse Elevator Ride

nyc_1701

Goosebumps. I actually had goosebumps when that one twintower appeared and disappeared in the right window. Beautifully done, this project in one of the elevators to the observatory atop 1 World Trade Center: it shows an animated time lapse that recreates the development of New York City’s skyline, from the 1500s to today.Continue Reading

Textscape by Hongtao Zhou

Hongtao Zhou3

Do you know the kind of project that makes you regret the fact that computers won’t let you feel textures? For me, this is one of those projects. I think the fragility yet steadiness of the letter shapes are extremely appealing. Bravo, Hongtao Zhou, you did a great job turning NewContinue Reading

A wonderful, poetic work. Congrats, Ainslie Henderson, with this amazing animation for James‘s song ‘Moving On’, you got me crying over yarn every time I see it. Such a beautifulContinue Reading

Have a Pantone Beer With Me

Dark_porter_7701

I think those talented Spanish designers from Txaber did a great job: they managed to make a not-passionately-crazy-about-beer person like myself feel the desperate desire to have all of these cans and bottles. Don’t you love the simple freshness of it too? Forget about the complex labels and terms that supermarket products are screaming toContinue Reading

Here is Today

hereistoday_1

Whenever people talk about history I find it hard to actually feel the bigness of it. I don’t know how much time there has been before I was born. I mean, sure I know the numbers, but what is 13,798 million years? It’s such an abstract idea for me, that I wasContinue Reading

24 Hours of Happy by Pharrell

24 hours of Happy

Have you ever seen a music video that lasted for 24 hours? For me, today was the first time. The only difficult thing about this beautiful work is that it’s hard to decide when to stop watching it. I think it’s great and I am sure it will make youContinue Reading

9,866,539 Buildings on One Map

All the geographical map lovers, pay attention! Isn’t this amazing? For me this is another perfect example of a project where data can become art. Go ahead, click, and start zooming and exploring The Netherlands. You can find the old canals of Amsterdam, the mosaic patterns that are the new build boroughsContinue Reading

Aging is Beautiful

Danielle

Editor’s note: Watch the whole thing. With sound. Don’t skip around. Just let it play, or else you’re missing out. Ok, I admit: many people have already done a photography project in which we can see a child growing up by showing a stop motion of daily portraits. However I stillContinue Reading

Let’s Have Dinner Together

plate_06

As a Dutch girl who lived in New York last year – and became absolutely crazy about that city – there is no way I don’t want to share this somewhat absurd work by Amsterdam based artist Maxime Ansiau. He managed to give the biggest cliché of Holland, ‘Delftware‘ (orContinue Reading

Twelve Year Old Boy, Doing The Impossible

This is the work of Slovenian photographer Matej Peljhan. In fact, I love all of his work, but this series of photos called Le Petit Prince especially touched me. It’s about twelve-year-old Luka. Luka suffers from muscular dystrophy; the muscle disease has severly limited his ability to move to mostly his fingers, making evenContinue Reading
