Every home is full of outlets nowadays. It’s also full of power cords which most of us wish we could hide somehow. That and some other problems outlets producers tries to solve in contemporary outlets.
Canadian artist Guy Laramee has recently published a new series of his amazing book landscapes which are made by carving old books, dictionaries and encyclopedias. He calls his new project “Guan Yin” and dedicates it “to the mysterious forces thanks to which we can traverse ordeals”.

We all have many old and unused items lying around in our homes or garages waiting to be thrown away. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but there’s a great feeling of liberation that comes after shedding old stuff.
However, before you start cleaning your home, we want to show you 20 incredibly creative Do It Yourself projectsthat may change your mind. You’ll learn that a lot of useless items can be transformed into wonderful creations.
You can turn an old glove into a cute chipmunk toy, toilet paper rolls into a beautiful floral wall art, plastic bottle into a broom and many more.
We’ve been working on this list for a long time, but I’m sure there are many more awesome DIY ideas that we’ve missed.
Yesterday in London’s West India Quays, Canary Wharf, on Guinness World Records Day, Reebok CrossFit has teamed up London-based street art duo 3D Joe and Max to complete what will go down as the world’s largest and longest 3D street artwork ever (for now). The deceptively realistic piece measures 1,160.4 metres square and is 106.5m long, beating the previous 892.15metre square record set by China’s Qi Xinghua, and will remain on display for the rest of today.
Luxury brand Louis Vuitton recently partnered with Paris-based photographer Vincent Bousserez to create this whimsical set of photos. Bousserez thought up an innovative way to emphasize the luxury brand’s product features like zippers, clasps, buckles and detailed stitching. With “Larger than Life,” the photographer created a series where miniature people are seen polishing sunglasses, climbing up onto bag zippers, or playing golf under the LV logo. As Louis Vuitton states, it’s “a fantasy daily life where golf players enjoy a night session on a monogram course or a couple who walk down a quite unexpected aisle.” Take a look!
I have seen lots of stone sculptures over the years, but I’ve never seen any like this before. Did you know that stones can have zippers incorporated into them? I didn’t either until I saw this collection. I know at first glance, you might think these are photoshopped images, but they aren’t. As a matter of fact, artist Hirotoshi Itoh collects stones near the river by his home to create these.
As strange as it sounds, New York-based artist Judith Braun creates all these wonderful landscapes and abstract patterns using nothing but her fingers dipped in charcoal dust. Braun says that she often uses her both hands simultaneously to the extent of arms’ reach as this allows the inherent symmetry of the body to generate a gestural vocabulary of mark making.
Today we want to show you abstract contemporary ceramic sculptures created by British artist Matthew Chambers. “Matthew began his journey in 1993 with a training in handmade tableware with Philip Wood in Nunney, the Somerset village where he grew up. His other education began in 1999 at Bath School of Art, followed with an MA at the Royal College of Art in London from 2002. He currently lives and makes on the Isle of Wight after moving there on a residency at Quay Arts in 2004.” Have fun!
