There is something very arresting about these photographs, don’t you think? They’re by Italian photographer Andrea Galvani, who is also a Photography Professor at the Accademia Carrara di Belle Arti di Bergamo. Something about the horse photos in particular put me in mind of Tim Walker, but maybe with muted colors. Do you see it too?

What a great blog, you really put a lot of effort into this site.

Brillant. The photo of the tires reminds me of the anti nazi work done by Toyen.

Recently our Web Operations Manager, Heather, helped to organize a really fun event here in Philly, the Independance Day Scooter Rally! It lasts for a whole weekend, and this year was very successful, with over 150 people who showed up from all over- two ladies even came all the way from Oklahoma! Heather kindly shared a few really cool pictures from the rally, check them out!

I’m loving these surreal gouache and watercolor illustrations by Ramis Kim! There were so many gorgeous and colorful pieces on her site I had trouble picking a few to show you!

These soft photographs are from Joyce Tenneson‘s series Intimacy. This is such a wonderful way to photograph flowers – I love it!

I think you all will love this wonderful time-lapse video by Caitlin Parker!
This is a time lapse video in progress. I am an artist. I built this dollhouse and put it in my yard. I planted North East Native plants in and around the house. A hunting camera/motion camera is set up to take stills of the house as it evolves, decays from weather, and as animals wander through. This is ongoing- so far only two and half months have been documented. I plan on one year, to watch the seasons change…

Really cool concept. I think I'd like it more if all the shots were day. I like all the animals you see at night, but the back and forth between night and day shots was a little distracting. Awesome project though.

That's awesome!

This video is a really neat paper animation, directed by Makoto Yabuki. Supposedly it represents thinking outside the box, and an artist getting inspiration – I just wish that papers would react like this when I draw!

Very cool. Made me think of CandyLand, Dr. Suess, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. :)

I love the beautiful details in these pieces by Fuco Ueda! They come off like very vivid dream worlds! Don’t miss Fuco’s website.

This projection on the side of a building by UrbanScreen is completely awesome! It’s called How it would be, if a house was dreaming. Mesmerizing!
