Mixing amazing technique and utter blunt shocking images Choi is climbing my list of favorite artists.

These dream-like installations are assembled, and then photographed by Norwegian artist Rune Guneriussen.
Just imagine being out for a walk in Norway’s countryside, turning a corner and discovering a magical forest of lamps, a tangle of chairs, or a river of books.

Here's an example from April 23, 1979 (I believe the photographer of the series is the man in the left foreground in this picture): By 1980, we start to figure out that the photographer is a filmmaker. Some days he doesn't photograph anything interesting, so instead takes a photo of the date. Throughout the 1980s we see more family/fun photos, but also some glimpses of the photographer's filmmaking and music. The photographer is a big Mets fan. In the late 1980s we start seeing more evidence that the photographer is also a musician. In 1991, we see visual evidence of the photographs so far. Stardust Civilization (10 photos)

Insane Underwater Movie Sets (10 photos) Have you ever wondered how movies shoot their underwater scenes?
In one of the most elaborate sets in the world, British film production company Pinewood Studio captures breathtaking shots in a tank filled with 1.2 million liters (317,000 gallons) of water. The underwater stage, which opened in 2005, has been used for a huge number of TV commercials, music videos and films, including The Bourne Ultimatum, Atonement, Elizabeth and Casino Royale. ''It's exciting to show the story of the production through underwater pictures," said Phoebe Rudomino, a commercial diver and photographer who took all the shots.
