pennies on the floor

I love this clever floor! It’s all tiled with pennies! I bet it shines in the light very appealingly too! See it in person at The Standard Grill in the Standard Hotel in New York City!

This is so cool! It reminds me of the Cildo Meireles work "Mission/Missions (How to build a Cathedral)" and since you enjoyed this pennies floor I thought you might dig the Meireles too. Pic here of the whole thing, though it's so gorgeous in person, it really does feel like a holy/reverent area with the lighting and intimacy: http://austin.about.com/od/museums/ig/BlantonMuseum/Meireles-Blanton-Exhibit-.htm And here's me touching it! It was in London so all the coins were pence, not pennies: http://www.flickr.com/photos/lhall/3188138613/ A shot of the bones opposite the coins: http://www.flickr.com/photos/lhall/3188140679/in/photostream/

Richard Heeks takes these beautiful photos of soap bubbles. I can’t imagine how difficult it would be to capture the bubbles at just the right moment! Check out his Flickr stream – he a lot of really arresting shots!

How cute are these illustrations by Katie Vernon?! She has many prints for sale in her Etsy Shop; I may have to give that hedgehog at the top a home! Check out her website too – many more sweet pieces!

Today is the USA’s Independence Day – it’s our 233rd birthday! Hooray! I hope everyone is out enjoying themselves and eating yummy food and getting ready for awesome fireworks celebrations like the ones above! I’m off to get ready and try to get my own pictures of fireworks!

Happy 4th of July! I always try to take pictures of the fireworks but they never come out as good as those pics you posted!

It took Wataru Itou, an art-student in Tokyo, four years to create this intricate paper castle! It’s called Umi no Ue no Oshiro, or Castle on the Ocean, and aside from the pretty lights, it features a ferris wheel and a moving train! Absolutely amazing.

The level of detail is truly amazing. I don't understand how someone can spend years doing something when I can barely make through an episode of the Simpsons

so much stuff similar to this has been popping up lately! the san fran toothpick or popsicle stick city model is pretty awesome too!

The amazingly vibrant colors in these knit sculptural installations by Sarah Applebaum are waking me right up! I love how bold they are, and so texturally interesting! I’d love to wear that robe in the last photo as well, any day! Read more about Sarah on her site, and also on Beautiful/Decay which has a nice write-up about her.

I love all of Jennifer Davis‘ paintings, and I had so much trouble deciding on only a few to post here! Aren’t they great?! I think my favorite is the manatee balloon, though those little sea lions are pretty fabulous! Check out all of her work on her site – more soft colors and interesting subject matter! You won’t be disappointed!

What do you guys think of these crazy colorful designs by Timothy James Andrews? They’re from his Autumn/Winter collection for 2009-2010, called, as you might have guessed, A-Block-A-Brick-Toe. I really like them, even though I know I could never pull them off myself! The colors and shapes reminded Susie Bubble of Tetris blocks – I’m leaning toward Legos, but it’s the same basic idea!
Check out Dazed Digital for more pictures of the line!

i would totally rock those leggings or the tank top.

I love that use of flourescent light bulbs (or something that looks a lot like it)! Another cool use is in Mika's Grace Kelly music video.

When the paper company Arjowiggins unveiled its new fancy paper line Curious Collection, they wanted to do something with a lot of impact to announce it! With the help of French photographer Grégoire Alexandre, they did! Aren’t these pictures incredible?! See some fun behind-the-scenes video here! (Along the sidebar.)
