Story Behind Those Stunning Cinematic Gifs Here at theMET, we're always looking for creative projects that catch our eye. More than anything, we love posting about work that pushes boundaries, showing our audience something that has been changed, flipped or spinned into something magically different. Then, we see it as our job to find out the story behind such projects. What inspired the artist or photographer to start down that path? clever nettle - vintage & fashion in portland, oregon A few misc film images that I like as a group.

Nature Photography / ANTILIMIT Behind The Glass In our modern world where most of us are generally surrounded by and marketed to with uninspiring things, this serves as my attempt to counter that with moments I've found to be interesting and special. I've taken and post-processed all the photos here since 2002. I currently call Austin home and have lived throughout the United States (to include Washington State, Florida, Indiana, Virginia & Texas) during my lifetime. I currently work as a front-end designer and developer during the day and enjoy travelling to new places and wandering around with my gear. Whilst snapping, nothing is ever pre-arranged.
The Infinity Room With this immersive installation, French artist Serge Salat invites visitors to take a journey through endless layers of space, decked out with cubic shapes, panels of mirrors, shifting lights and music. “Beyond Infinity” is a multi-sensory, multimedia experience that blends Eastern Chinese with Western Renaissance. Inspired by the Suzhou Gardens, a masterpiece of Chinese landscape, the three-lined trigram of I Ching is the main pattern that organizes the space of the work. Salat uses mirrors as optical illusions, exploding a single room into spatial infinity. via [Architizer]

A Beautiful Mess I love using cloth napkins to dress up our dinner table, and through the years I've grown even more fond of their sustainability and cost effectiveness. Though, I'm not sure how cost effective it is if you keep buying more and more cloth napkins each year! This holiday season I thought it would be fun to look at how I could dress up the napkins I already own to give them an extra festive vibe. Photo Booth April 16, 2014 Portfolio: Cathedrals of Ice This past February, thanks to an unusually cold winter, the sea caves along the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, in northern Wisconsin, were accessible by foot for the first time in five years.

Erin Brethauer, a photographer living in North Carolina, visited the sea caves. Click here to view a slide show of her photographs.
Korean photographer Taewon Jang grew up intimately familiar with the world of industrialization. His father spent 36 years working for a cement factory, during which time Taewon witnessed the industry's evolution first hand—including the loss of factories and the jobs it provided. "Many of the basic industries that were considered important in the 20th century are now being abandoned due to rapid changes in industrial exploitation," he told Co.Design "I have been trying to document these changes." Taewon's book of photographs Stained Ground showcases industrialization's demise, with dramatic nighttime shots of disused factories around the world. The decline of manufacturing in the U.S. has been particularly dramatic. Manufacturing made up 28% of the country's economic output in 1959; today it is just 11%.
