Switzerland-born Italian artist Giuseppe Colarusso has a strange fetish for making everyday objects totally unusable. Each of the objects in Colarusso’s pictures are strange, and more than being useless, they would even cause you problems if applied in everyday life: from Egyptian hieroglyphs on a keyboard to a square rolling-pin, or an ordinary hammer with an electrical plug to a table tennis racket with a whole in the middle.

Brusspup is back with even more amazing resonance trick, called the Chladni plate experiment. This time the guy attached a tone generator to a black metal plate and poured sand over it. As the sound frequencies from the speaker make the plate vibrate, the sand gravitates to those areas where there are less vibrations, and creates complex sand patterns. These patterns are never random, and get more complex with the higher frequency.
We first wrote about Caillard and Persani’s hipster sculptures over a year ago, and since the new works by this duo are just as hilarious, we couldn’t let them go unnoticed! Whatever they say about not judging a book by its cover, we still do it. French photographer Léo Caillard and art director Alexis Persani illustrate that with their Street Stone photography series, were they dress ancient Louvre’s sculptures into something more trendy and up-to-date.
A family-run crocheting manufacture from Vietnam proves that size doesn’t matter! Their miniature crocheted animals are so small that they fit on a finger tip, and some of them hardly reach 1/4 of an inch. The idea for the business was inspired by the youngest (10-year-old) member of the family, who’s greatly fond of various movie characters and loves animals.
It took Mike Olbinski 4 years of failed attempts before he actually got his dream: on June 3rd he and Andy Hoeland managed to capture an unworldly time-lapse video of a rotating supercell thunderstorm near Booker, Texas. “There are no words really to describe the moment we saw this storm. Pictures don’t do it justice,” says Mike.
We have already shown you some amazing examples of hyper realistic works, but here’s a selection of the most outstanding ones. We also included some photos of the creation process just to fully convince you these are not photographs. Which of these artists is your favorite?
If you wonder what hairless raccoon would look like, here’s the answer. This poor raccoon has lost its hair over the course of a few months, and now looks like a new species. Some say it “has acquired non-inflammatory alopecia” while others think “it’s probably just been going through Chemo.” What do you think?
If Singlhild Nystrom survives all the crazy things she’s doing, she will have one of the coolest childhood photo albums ever – all thanks to her dad’s endless imagination and Photoshop skills. Swedish photographer Emil Nystrom digitally inserts his 1-year-old daughter into such crazy situations as fixing a car, wielding a ninja sword or flying after a plane.

This has got to be hands-down one of the classiest dogs ever!
