This installation by Marieke van der Bruggen is really interesting, and really pretty! All the hanging twigs, branches and leaves are made out of colored glucose – in other words, they’re basically hanging lollipops, and visitors to the installation are allowed to pick of parts of it and eat them. The show doesn’t open until next week though, and to boot it’s in Milan. But, if you do happen to be in Milan, you can check it out! It’s the Jewels and Joules show, being presented by the Design Connection Brainport and Design Academy Eindhoven. Sweet – literally!

These shots are from an interesting installation by Madrid-based art group Luzinterruptus. They took many plastic bags and affixed them to lights and sticks in the front yard of the Prado Museum in Madrid, creating a field of soft glowing lights. It’s cool to see plastic bags, which I often see flying around in the street outside my Philly apartment, used to create something that, in my opinion, looks really pretty!
I find these photos of an abandoned old junkyard in Switzerland really inspiring! I can’t put my finger on what I like so much about the pictures, but they’re just really appealing! The old cars are so beautiful, even, or maybe especially, with plants growing all over them! The whole set is really good, you can see it here.
Okay, so this is an ad for T-Mobile, but it’s really cool! They hired some dancers to just start dancing at a certain time in Liverpool Street Station, and everyone else sort of started to join in! It’s awesome- my favorite part is people’s reactions to the sudden dancing! I wish we all just danced around more…
If you’re looking for a way to while away the afternoon, may I recommend Dogs Looking Like People, a little blog entirely devoted to cute pictures of dogs doing human-like things. Or sometimes just being cute. I got the above pictures from there – they just tickle me pink! Enjoy…
