Alan Sailer-Exploding Objects We found this pretty damn interesting and with technology these days the impossible is becoming possible. Photographer Alan Sailer comes up with a unique way to display exploding objects as art. Alan uses his garage to take these photos and he is able to make them brilliant by using a laser that triggers the flash to go off at the perfect second. A glass skull and an eye are just a few things that Alan is shooting these days and I’m sure he is enjoying every minute of it. (Via Format Mag) Take a look at the gallery below.

It has come to be known as the Riddle of Epicurus or the Epicurean paradox. It was translated by David Hume in the Dialogues concerning Natural Religion: If God is willing to prevent evil, but is not able to Then He is not omnipotent.If He is able, but not willing Then He is malevolent.If He is both able and willing Then whence cometh evil?If He is neither able nor willing Then why call Him God?

Beautiful/Decay Cult of the Creative Arts Gabriel Moreno does beautiful work with such basic materials: a pen and a brush. His illustrations begin in black and white, upon which Moreno builds, adding layers of color and images of other places and people tattooed into their skin. Flowers, birds, and faces organically expand from his subjects, as if a rush of creativity, or a dream, is escaping them. Katsuyo Aoki: Porcelain skulls Katsuyo Aoki’s porcelain skulls make death a beautiful thing With Halloween on its way and so much death imagery everywhere, it’s refreshing to see Katsuyo Aoki’s take on ghoulishness. Her porcelain skull sculptures feature meticulous vanilla white curly patterned details, that look like they could be made of coral–or maybe icing. (Mmm?) And if you look closely, you can almost make out blissful grins. See more of Katsuyo Aoki’s skulls below.
