If you have never heard about Japanese wood sculptor named Haroshi, go get the wind of his most original conceptual art. As a creator of amazingly beautiful wooden sculptures out of old, crashed and broken skateboard decks, Haroshi passed for a man of considerable resourcefulness. His multicolored and meticulously sculpted art pieces simply astound with lifelike affinity, so in whichever way it’s even possible to mistake them for being real! In his works he stacks many layers with all piece elements being connected either in their original form or in shapes to form wooden mosaic, dots, and pixels. After that they’re cut down to size, shaven to get rid of the debris, and afterwards coated with a final glossy finish.

Linda Vista Revisited: East LA’s Abandoned Hospital Last year, while scouting for a short film that never came to fruition, some friends and I talked our way inside an empty, run-down hospital in Boyle Heights. The short was supposed to take place in a hospital, but after a few minutes wandering the halls of Linda Vista — alone and decidedly creeped-out — it became obvious that there was no way the place would work. It had been closed for twenty years, and it showed: there was dirt caked in layers on walls and mysteriously wet floors; windows were broken and doors hung off their hinges; ceiling tiles had fallen victim to moisture and gravity, and rats had chewed through the walls. We didn’t have the money to make Linda Vista look like anything more than a horror movie — a few of which had actually been shot there over the years.

12 interruptores de luz más loco Just waiting for my human Sweet Heart….How are you? Chihuahua and German Shepherd 'Strange Worlds': More than meets the eye Given the subject matter of this blog, most of the artists, designers, and architects who I write about aren’t exactly in the business of deception. For this post, reality and transparency have gone on holiday, replaced with the truly exquisite, eye-tricking works of New Jersey-based artist Matthew Albanese. When looking at the below photo you might think, “Wow, what a dramatic photo of a tornado” not “Wow, what an interesting photo of ground parsley, cotton, moss and steel wool.” Well, that’s what you are looking at: ground parsley, cotton, moss and steel wool painstakingly arranged to look like a tornado sweeping across a plain.

10 Strangest Trees on Earth Matthew Fox once said – “If you look closely at a tree you’ll notice its knobs and dead branches, just like our bodies. What we learn is that beauty and imperfection go together wonderfully.” El Arbol de La Sabina Source Trees are important components of the natural landscape and a wonderful living organism which gives shelter, food, warmth and protection to all living things. Though common trees are fascinating immensely but there are some of the more unusual and amazing tree specimens found in the world which is weird and spectacular, yet people are hardly aware of their mysterious properties, strange sizes or unusual shapes.
