Any screams from the Mad Scientist’s Laboratory were quickly drowned out by the commotion at the Clearance Bin Bar upstairs.
Amazing Green Landscape Patterns
Green landscapes captured by Polish photographers Marek Kiedrowski and Krzysztof Browko. All these gorgeous photos were taken in Toscana, Italy and in Moravia, a historical region of the Czech Republic.
These sculptures are created with such mathematical precision that the image can only be seen as a reflection. To get this effect the London-based artist, Jonty Hurwitz, first scans a 3D object, then distorts it with a computer using π algorithms. His final pieces, made from steel, resin, perspex, or copper, have to be viewed next to a round reflective cylinder – only then do the objects come into focus.
The Hand of the Desert and Monument to the Drowned
Chilean sculptor Mario Irarrázabal has produced two giant hand sculptures located in strange places. The first hand sculpture, The Hand of the Desert, is located deep in the the Atacama desert in Chile. The hand was constructed at an altitude of 1,100 meters above sea level. The work has a base of iron and cement, and stands 11 meters tall. The second hand, Monument to the Drowned, is a sculpture of five fingers partially submerged in sand, located at Brava Beach in Punta del Este, Uruguay.
A beautiful light sculpture/chandelier, named Forms in Nature, that transforms its surrounding space into a spooky forest of shadows. Artwork designed by Hilden & Diaz.
The most beautifully designed subway tunnels in the world are found in Stockholm, Sweden. The grand architecture reminds its travelers that they are deep underground. Featuring painted cave walls and ceilings, the design is more like an art gallery than a subway.

Alcohol Under a Microscope
The latest art? No, but one could argue the point. Its actually different types of alcohol photographed under a microscope. The photographs are taken after the liquid has crystallized on a slide and then shot under a polarized light microscope. Fascinating results. The company that undertook this venture is called Bevshots. “art. distilled.”
