You know the dedication of a camera to take images, when it captures pics even when made out of paper. Going into hyperboles aside, this papercraft Leica sets an impressive stance by managing to capture images, even while it is made of paper. Matthew Nicholson‘s papercraft Leica uses film to capture images, and has most of its working managed by paper, which if you ask us for a levelheaded comment, is totally freakin’ awesome.
Sao Paulo based designer Jum Nakao spent 700 hours and a ton of paper to create these amazing dresses. These dresses were displayed at a fashion show and later destroyed as a reminder that fashion “is a medium and not an end in itself.”
Latest urban art intervention by Luzinterruptus created 50 small ecosystems that are “living in the harshest and greyest areas of Madrid city center.” Miffed at the lack of usable green spaces in Madrid, Luzinterruptus created these tiny installations as a symbolic intervention. These small greenhouses were protected from pollution by umbrella-like tops and the greenery within was accompanied by a flock of animals. Each of these “ecosystems” had its own lights to add to their presentation.
Project Passport and Reality brings to light something we have rarely thought of, the difference between the looks of the person in the passport, and our own appearance. Artists took a look at images in valid passports and put them along with photographs of the passport holders. Intriguing examples, and quite surprisingly true for most of us.
Do not let the detailing fool you, these guns are miniatures that won’t shoot. Made in Russia in the ’70s, the artist kept special note of the accuracy, making these weapons from schematics and description of real guns. They are so detailed that they probably could shoot a bullet, if you could somehow find a way to get a tiny bullet to get into these guns.
Manga Plates project by Mika Tsutai pretty much stands up to its name. Each piece from the collection is detailed as a frame from some manga. All you have to do is place food strategically on these plates, and it would appear a lot more delicious to manga lovers like us.

“Ice cream” is a series of images by Sonia & Mark Whitesnow. “Clean lines, perfect, color, subtle and concise form. Childhood memories, the sweet life, love for ice cream. Awakening, but have not yet awakened sexuality. Look tasty and in my soul there is tenderness.”
