Say Something Nice (View it larger on YouTube) | Subscribe to our YouTube channel Produced by Charlie Todd and Matt Adams / Music by Tyler Walker For our latest mission we constructed a custom wooden lectern with a megaphone holster and an attached sign that read, “Say Something Nice.” The lectern was placed in public spaces around New York and then left alone. We wanted to see what would happen if New Yorkers were given the opportunity to amplify their voices to “say something nice.” Say Something Nice was produced by Improv Everywhere as part of the Guggenheim Museum exhibition stillspotting nyc.

Galerie de Bellefeuille “Kevin Sonmor’s heroic, post-apocalyptic paintings [...] reference dark brooding abstract landscapes animated with tight, intensely coloured, realistically ordered still-lifes. Hints of survival and the hope of the unseen people are encoded in these enigmatic altar-like settings, covered with rich royal red tapestries and sumptuous blue velvets offering sanctuary for chalices and bright sacrificial flowers. Could this bounty of picked blossoms indicate man’s expectancy to still harvest nature for his own use? Sonmor’s apparent contradictions suggest a mysterious, otherworldly character of spirituality.

It is often used as a pejorative; related terms for a person seen to be lazy include couch potato, slacker, and bludger.

Anamorphic illusions Spanning over 30 years, Swiss artist Felice Varini has been mesmerizing viewers with his anamorphic illusions. The artist, who resides in Paris, displays his illusionary work in both private and public spaces. The urban paintings require a specific point of view to visualize the geometric shapes he creates as a continuous whole. From any other standpoint, the piece is fragmented and may not align properly.
Monochromatic Watercolor Paintings Exquisitely Depict Cratered Surface of Moon German artist Michal Friese has long been enthralled with the night sky, and she expresses her fascination through beautiful watercolor paintings of the moon. Her solitary depictions of the rocky surface use a limited color palette and special techniques to mimic its cratered appearance. The watercolor medium, while it can generally be unpredictable, is neatly contained here, and showcases small, exquisite details within rigid circles. Each has a slightly different look—just like the phases of the moon.
