Peintures à la crème glacée - Othman Toma Iraqi artist Othman Toma creates these paintings using melted ice-creams.

There are some out there that say that these paintings, could not have been painted with the ice-creams, Othman says that, that is what he used as his paint, maybe next time he should do a time lapse video to prove them wrong.

Temari balls faites par une dame de 92 ans These stunning embroidered balls called "temari" were made by the prodigiously nimble fingers of a 92-year-old grandmother in Japan. Although she only learned this elaborate skill in her sixties, she has since created nearly 500 unique designs that have been photographed by her granddaughter NanaAkua. Impressive does not even begin to describe this feat of dexterity, imagination and keen eyesight. The difficult process of becoming a recognized temari craftsman in Japan is tedious and requires specific training and testing. She now volunteers every week teaching others how to make their own temari. Temari, meaning "hand ball" in Japanese, are embroidered toy balls fashioned from the silk scraps of old kimonos.

Dessins au crayon et illusion de relief - Ramon Bruin Most of these drawings by Ramon Bruin seem relatively simple, but at the same time, because of their shadows and some intriguingly placed real-life props in the photographs, the sketched images appear to be almost magically leaving the bounds of the paper they’re drawn on… (via My Modern Met) Mia Pearlman - Cloudscapes MAELSTROM is a giant multilevel mobile, 12 feet in diameter and 11 feet high, with 6 independently rotating (360°) layers of cut paper. An upside-down whirlpool, it echoes both the East River currents and the cloud formations visible through the windows. MAELSTROM utilizes the actual internal weather system of Smack Mellon to generate its movement, air currents produced by the rotation of four ceiling fans and hot air blown by the heating system. On a deeper level, this work evokes the inevitable reminder of the nearby skyline: 9/11. Unknown forces, much bigger than us, beyond our control.
