‘Flying Formation’ is a series of digital photo collages by Shaun Kardinal of birds flying in precise geometric formations.

Anne Dérian, an architect by trade, is the force behind these beautiful mosaic art pieces. Originally from France, Anne now lives in Berlin and does mosaics on commission basis. In times where everything is about speed, I find incredible beauty in the slowness and thoughtfulness that the mosaic process represents. I’d hire her in a heart beat.
Since 2004 Rachel has been researching, working with biologists, and traveling all over the world to photograph continuously living organisms 2,000 years old and older. The work spans disciplines, continents, and millennia: it’s part art and part science. (In November of 2010 Rachel told her story at CreativeMornings.)
Her book contains 125 photographs, 30 essays on her 30 subjects, original inforgraphics, and contributions by New York Times science columnist Carl Zimmer and world-renowned curator Hans Ulrich Obrist.

I happend to stumble upon Adam Frank’s Lucid Mirror at NYNOW and it took my breath away. It’s a stunning décor mirror that places luminous 3D sunrays illuminating clouds behind the plane of the reflective surface. Viewers can ‘touch’ the illusion with their reflected image.
The above image doesn’t do it justice. It’s magical. Believe me.
Owning a real Calder Mobile or Stabile has been one of my life dreams ever since I can remember. Nothing makes me stop and wonder like his kinetic sculptures made with delicately balanced or suspended components. A girl can dream…
Hélène Le Drogou was concerned with the plastic waste that contaminates the Colombian Amazon and decided to do something about it. She collaborated with Industrial Designer Alvaro Catalán de Ocón and talented textile artisans from Cauca and started making these stunning PET Lamps. I love people that don’t complain but instead go ahead and make things better.
