MeghanColemanHeaderOhio-born graphic designer Meghan Coleman loves a good challenge. Last September, she began her most recent endeavor, 365 Days of Balloons, a Tumblr blog dedicated to creating one colorful twisted object each day for a whole year. Now on day 107, her balloons have become wildly popular all over the internet. The cute and quirky objects themselves range in size and difficulty — from college mascots to a 5′ tall Christmass tree, complete with presents.

Azevedo carves thousands of small figures and places them on monuments across the globe where audiences congregate to watch them melt.

Screen Shot 2013-10-04 at 11.05.48 AMThe Float Table is a matrix of “magnetized” wooden cubes that levitate with respect to one another. The repelling cubes are held in equilibrium by a system of tensile steel cables.

It’s classical physics applied to modern design. Each handcrafted table is precisely tuned to seem rigid and stable, yet a touch reveals the secret to Float’s dynamic character.

LéoCaillardHeaderFrench photographer Léo Caillard decided it was time to modernize some classic sculptures, to trade in loin clothes and leaves for skinny jeans and denim shirts. He began the makeover by photographing hip Parisians in trendy garb, then mapping their clothes onto nude Hellenic sculptures taken from the Louvre.

AnthonyCernielloHeader

Anthony Cerniello’s mesmerizing aging simulation, ‘Danielle’, is gaining internet buzz, not only for the erie realism, but for the painstaking process needed to achieve the effect.

Cerniello traveled to his friend Danielle’s family reunion and with still photographer Keith Sirchio shot portraits of her youngest cousins through to her oldest relatives. Then he scanned each photo and carefully edited the photos to select the family members that had the most similar bone structure. Next he brought on the animators, Nathan Meier and Edmund Earle, to morph and animate the still photos to make them lifelike as possible. With the finished product, the viewer can tell that something is happening, but can’t see it, but can feel it, like aging itself.

JusinGagnicHeaderNew York based artist Justin Gignac is from the school of thought that packaging is the most important part of marketing a product. He believes in it so much that he has enterprisingly began selling trash. Gignac takes ‘hand picked’ pieces of refuse from the streets of New York, sorts them into loosely related groups and places them in simply designed acrylic boxes. So far, he has moved over 1,400 units to buyers from over 25 different countries.

The regular units sell for $50 each, while limited edition ones from events like Obama’s inauguration go for double the usual asking price.
