Photos Reveal What It's Like to Have Anxiety Photographer John William Keedy explores themes of anxiety and varied neuroses in his series titled It's Hardly Noticeable. Examining his own struggles with anxiety over the past nine years and drawing from other mental disorders, the images present an insightful look at behaviors that are deemed "abnormal" while simultaneously challenging ideas of normalcy. The serious topic is addressed in an intriguing fashion, one that offers small windows into the lives of people who suffer from mental illnesses. Each image is like a pocket of information that reveals a tiny corner of a bigger picture. In one frame we are presented only with the hand of an anonymous character gripping onto a bloodied individual flosser over a sink filled with dozens of the tiny instrument, already used, and there are still over a dozen more flossers waiting to be used. Clearly, Keedy is reflecting the obsessive-compulsive behavior of an individual who is compelled to continually clean his teeth.
Abstract Maps The cartographic work of Toronto-based self-taught artist Jazzberry Blue is awesome. At the edge of abstraction, the major cities such as Paris, New York or London, are shown around the axes that compose and structure: streets, rivers … An original way to rediscover these cities. Lego Recreations of Famous Movie Scenes You’re never too old to play with toys!

Famous Television Show Home Floor Plans After years of watching shows like Dexter and Two and a Half Men, you can’t help but become so attached to the television show that you start wondering what their household really looks like. Spanish interior designer Iñaki Aliste Lizarralde had the same thought as us, and decided to do something for himself creating this incredible series of highly detailed floor plans from some of our favorite television shows. The collection includes the likes of The Simpson, Dexter, Friends, Seinfeld, Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, and a handful others. Each of the floor plans is highly detailed, and not only includes the architectural side of things, but also goes into immense furnishing details really bringing these television shows to life. As a huge fan of a lot of these shows, this was definitely a project we could appreciate the amount of time and effort that was put in. Check out the floor plans below.
carnovsky RGB Color est e pluribus unus RGB is a work about the exploration of the “surface’s deepness”. RGB designs create surfaces that mutate and interact with different chromatic stimulus. Carnovsky's RGB is an ongoing project that experiments with the interaction between printed and light colours. The resulting images are unexpected and disorienting. The colors mix up, the lines and shapes entwine becoming oneiric and not completely clear.

“It’s not what it seems” series by Hikaru Cho In this fun series of painted objects titled “It’s not what it seems” by artist Hikaru Cho, common foods are transformed with deftly applied acrylic paints to look like other foods. A banana is turned into a near photo-realistic cucumber, a tomato becomes a tangerine, and even an egg is made into a glistening eggplant. These are actually some of Cho’s “tamer” artworks, as she’s used these same skills with a paintbrush to alter human faces and body parts by adding extra eyes, zippers and mouths.
