Inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s Eau de Voilette and starring Michelle Williams and Natalie Portman, this short art film is an advertisement for a ficitional perfume and sure to be beautiful and interesting. If that doesn’t already get you thinking, the film is directed by Roman Polanski and was conceived by Francesco Vezzoli. I can’t wait for the online screening on February 6th on Dazed Digital.
Head over to Dazed now for the trailer, and then mark your calendar for the 6th!

These incredible works of art are real, and so so tiny! Willard Wigan of the UK carves grains of rice or sugar into his miniature-sized sculptures, and then uses a hair from the back of a housefly to paint them! When they are on display in a gallery, each of his works has a microscope so you can see them – but when Willard works on them, he does so with the naked eye! I can’t even imagine, since most of his work is on the head of a pin or the eye of needle! I found a really cool video interview with him on Metacafe that you should have a look at; I posted it below!
I can’t imagine how much time it must take Stephanie Metz to feltwool into these amazing sculptures! The teddy bear skull at the bottom is part of an interesting set she did called Teddy Bear Natural History, which seriously looks like a museum exhibit!
How about these cool wire sculptures? I’m really impressed by them. They are the skilled work of Polly Verity, who makes them using wire, tissue paper, and occasionally some folded regular paper. Her site has photos of a lot of her work, including some life-sized wearable paper dresses, which are pretty cool. I’d rather have that unicorn mask though, or maybe some wire shoes! They look almost like glass slippers…
Something about these pictures is really interesting to me. They are from a set by Catherine Wagner called Homage to the Light Bulb. I really like the way all the light bulbs look together – I wonder though, how does one find all those different bulbs?
These awesome photos are by New York City photographer Sam Bassett. He seems to do more portraits than anything else, but as you can see, they are really unusual and interesting portraits! I have been wandering around his site for a chunk of this afternoon, and if you liked these pictures at all, you will definitely enjoy looking around it yourself!
