I am in love with these exquisite dainty little underthings by Stumpet & Pink. They’re too delicate for me though, I would definitely inadvertently rip seams and tear them up if I wore any! They are so so pretty to look at though. What do you guys think?

Motoi Yamamoto creates these amazing designs with loose salt, or salt baked into bricks for large structures. He started using salt as his only medium when his sister passed away from brain cancer twelve years ago, and he looks at his labyrinth-esque art as at once futile yet necessary to his healing. It’s also interesting to note that in Japanese culture salt is often considered a symbol of purity.
See a nice interview with Motoi here.

There are no words for this video other than totally awesome! Samsung paid these guys to go to Wales and put some LED lights on sheep and herd them into patterns to make different displays! The sheep were probably kind of confused, but boy did they help make some cool visuals! Check it out, it is just amazing!
P.S. Props to the sheepdogs too!
How about this hoodie made partially from a blow-up doll by Mama Anders? I first noticed it because I thought it was funny to have a face on the back of your head, I didn’t realize it was a blow up doll until looking closer.
Mama Anders: I customize existing tracksuit tops with parts of the blow-up dolls…These dolls are so ugly and vulgar that turning them into something beautiful has become a challenge for me. The doll is a means to convey something else. Interesting!
I’m finding these knit creations by Sandra Backlund really impressive. They are so visually interesting, complex and unique! I especially love the back of the fourth one, but they are all really gorgeous! Do you guys like them too? Have you ever seen anything like them?

This awesome house, called House C, was designed by Japanese architect Hiroshi Nakamura. I’ve seen a lot of houses built into hills with a sort of hill roof, but I haven’t seen any houses quite like this, with a normal flat roof with a garden/meadow on top. Isn’t it so awesome?! I would love to be that little girl…
These awesome light trees, created by designer Alexander Lervik, are made with a steel frame and tons of plastic fibre. The light source is a projector that lets you make the tree any color you want, and the tree can of course be outside or inside. I want one! I want three! I would put them inside, if i had room, how awesome would that be?!
I am obsessed by Cindy Riccardelli‘s jewelry right now! I love the huge masses of beads and how textured and chunky her work is. As much chunky jewelry is out there these days, I haven’t seen any quite like these – they really make a statement! I love the colors too, especially the first one! Cindy also paints and makes dolls- you can see all of her work, including a lot more jewelry, here on her site!
