‘The Ships That Sail Through the Clouds’ by Luigi Prina, 83-year-old builder of flying model ships.

Luigi Prina, 83 years old, has been an architect for more than 50 years. He has been interested in aircraft modelling since a very young age. The flying ships are made from ultrathin paper and balsa wood. Everything is optimized for flight: from the weight (between 20 and 50 grams) to the aerodynamic shape. They fly like any propeller airplane. The only difference is that here the propeller is powered by an internal elastic band and not an engine.

Amazingly intricate cardboard sculptures of Melbourne-based artist Daniel Agdag. His cardboard and PVA glue sculptures have an almost absurd complexity and detail and each work is created without detailed plans or drawings and are almost wholly improvised as he works.

“Body Scripture II”  – calligraphic body art. Israeli artist Ronit Bigal creates these black Indian ink calligraphies  composed of thousands of tiny Hebrew letters covering the skin of her models. Hereby the photographs together with the text appear almost like abstract landscapes or cloth covering the body.
