Running the Numbers is an interesting set of photos by photographer Chris Jordan, in which each picture has a specific quantity of a mass-consumed item. For example, one photo features fifteen million sheets of office paper (five minutes of average paper use), and another shows 106,000 aluminum cans (about thirty seconds of can consumption). As you might imagine, in real life some of these pictures are huge, like 10 feet by 25 feet! Below are a couple of shots from the set; see more here, they’re amazing!
Photographer Kevin Bauman has taken pictures of 100 different abandoned houses and posted them here on the net! I love old abandoned areas, houses and such – they are so interesting and there is something about them that just makes you want to look! See them all here.
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!
Barcode Revolution creates these specialized barcodes for a number of major Japanese brands. I love them! I have often wondered why we don’t do something creative with barcodes – I hope this idea makes it to the US!
Also, don’t you think one of these would look cool as the graphic on a tee-shirt? Maybe the castle one…
This is Kelburn Castle in Scotland, which in June 2007 was partially painted by the Sao Paolo Crew, who are Brazilian graffiti artists. It looks so cool! I love to see a castle that is over 500 years old covered in some modern graffiti art! And it’s so detailed! What do you guys think? Via.
You may remember a while ago when we first got our pet-camera, and Trixie tried it out for us. The camera clips to your pet’s collar and takes a picture once a minute so that you can see their view of the world! Well, today we had a new photographer try out the pet-cam for us! Meet Pilgrim, the sweet dog of Carrie, our Assistant Art Director.
Pilgrim wore the pet-cam for a while today and showed us the home office from a doggy point of view! His pictures are pretty fun, check them out below!
