An old residential building is seen surrounded by a newly-built ring viaduct, in Guangzhou, Guangdong province, China, June 18, 2015. The building was planned to be demolished, but several units in the building refused to move out as they couldn’t reach a compensation agreement with the authority, local media reported.

Temptations –  by photographer Jens Kristian Balle

temptation – a desire to do something, esp. something wrong or unwise.

Keeping this definition in mind the conceptual Temptations series was created fixating on the negative lifestyle habits and addictions of humans around the world. Though the theme is dark the series is kept light-hearted, full of bright colours and carefully styled objects to match.
The series itself was made to make people smile, but of course, it also has a message to maybe get a few people to think twice about their lifestyle choices, or in a funny way to reinforce what people probably already know. (text via dodho.com)

'In Orbit' ´wonderful suspended installation by Tomás Saraceno at the K21 Staendehaus museum in Duesseldorf, Germany.  Titled In Orbit the giant interactive piece is constructed from three separate levels of safety nets accessible from various points in the museum separated by enormous PVC balls measuring almost 30 feet (8.5 meters) in diameter. The resulting aerial landscape is an interesting hybrid between science fiction, spider webs, neural pathways and cloud formations.  Known for breaking the boundaries between art and science, Saraceno often refers to his interactive pieces as living organisms. In fact, over a period of three years Saraceno consulted with arachnologists (experts in the study of spiders), as well as architects and engineers to achieve the final design for In Orbit. Via the museum:      This floating spatial configuration becomes an oscillating network of relationships, resonances, and synchronous communication. When several people enter the audacious construction simultaneously, their presence sets it into motion, altering the tension of the steel wires and the intervals between the three meshwork levels. Visitors can coordinate their activities within the space, and are able – not unlike spiders in a web – to perceive space through the medium of vibration. Saraceno himself speaks of a new hybrid form of communication. 'In Orbit' ´wonderful suspended installation by Tomás Saraceno at the K21 Staendehaus museum in Duesseldorf, Germany.

Prudish. Flirty. Whore. Proper. Cheeky. Slut. These are just a few of the words that could be used to describe a woman’s sexual behavior based on her appearance alone, and 18-year-old college freshman Rosea Lake chose to display them starkly — on a young woman’s legs in a photo that has since gone viral.

“If you see a girl wearing something you see as distasteful, then you automatically discount them as a person and you don’t give them the opportunity to really be somebody in your eyes,” said Lake, 18. “And that’s really shameful.”

We are on a Bubble High

Slinkachu Sugar High (3) The 'Little People Project' started in 2006. It involves the remodelling and painting of miniature model train set characters, which I then place, photograph and leave on the street. It is both a street art installation project and a photography project. The street-based side of my work plays with the notion of surprise and I aim to encourage city-dwellers to be more aware of their surroundings. The scenes I set up, more evident through the photography and the titles I give these scenes aim to reflect the loneliness and melancholy of living in a big city, almost being lost and overwhelmed. But underneath this, there is always some humour. I want people to be able to empathise with the tiny people in my works. Slinkachu Sugar High (1)The 'Little People Project' started in 2006.

‘The Invisible Man’ artwork by Chinese artist Liu Bolin /

Liu Bolin is an artist from China’s Shandong province. Born in 1973, he currently lives and works in Beijing. Bolin received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Shandong College of Arts in 1995 and his Master of Fine Arts from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing in 2001. His work has been exhibited in museums and galleries around the world.

Known as The Invisible Man, Bolin’s most popular works are from his “Hiding in the City” series; photographic works that began as performance art in 2005. Helped by his assistants, Bolin stands still for hours in a landscape while they paint on him to create a camouflage, blending him into his surroundings. Bolin states: “My intention was not to disappear in the environment but instead to let the environment take possession of me.” (text via twistedsifter) / photographs courtesy of Galerie Paris-Beijing

Floating Heads by Sophie Cave1 Floating Heads by Sophie Cave

Floating Heads by artist Sophie Cave

/// Unnerving or Ennervating? Whatever you may decide, Sophie Cave’s Floating Heads is turning many of them.

Just about the first thing you noticed when you entered the Kelvingrove museum in Glasgow in 2010 were the heads.  So many heads hanging above your own that they can come as something of a shock.  The juxtaposition between the heads and their surroundings an (almost post) Victorian mansion adds to their overall effect. But the reactions to them are just as varied as their expressions.

Certainly the variety of reactions the faces elicit themselves are as diverse as the expressions on the faces. Unusual is certainly a word that springs to mind.  Well, to be honest in this setting one would be unusual – this exhibition by Scottish artist Sophie Cave shows over fifty of the disembodied human faces and they depict a whole gamut of emotions too.

Perhaps the fascination lies in the fact that the faces look like masks worn at carnivals.  Masks have a certain power – they transform those wearing them and they have universality in as much as they appear in every culture (in all sorts of shapes and sizes).  What message do these faces as masks convey to you?

Whatever you may think, one thing is certain.  They add a certain something to the Kelvingrove – which is Glasgow’s favourite museum as well as being the second most visited art gallery in the UK outside of London.

skull art sculpture installation exhibition artist arts modern pop art colorful paper art awesome  photo photography kunst strange cool art skull head bones anarchy, artist, graffiti, spray can, street art Cast in two worlds, both a skillful, anonymous graffiti artist and a famous fine artist, Typoe manages to perform a perfect balancing act between rebel and refined. Hailing from Miami, his latest work, Confetti Death, features a levatating skull forcefully puking out shards of spray can tops onto a wall. The contrast of dayglo color against the white wall and skull is striking. Typoe’s other work emphasizes both religion and violence, often combining objects of peace with those of war.

Spot the Dot

In a surprisingly simple yet ridiculously amazing installation for the Queensland Gallery of Modern Ar, artist Yayoi Kusama constructed a large domestic environment, painting every wall, chair, table, piano, and household decoration a brilliant white, effectively serving as a giant white canvas. Over the course of two weeks, the museum’s smallest visitors were given thousands upon thousands of colored dot stickers and were invited to collaborate in the transformation of the space, turning the house into a vibrantly mottled explosion of color.<img class=" wp-image-1689 " title="Spot the Dot" src="https://hovercraftdoggy.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/obliteration2.jpg?w=480" alt="Obliteration Room by Yayoi Kusama, Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, installation dots stickers color white room children kids play interactive photo architecture design
