FlyLight: Glass tubes flying like a flock of birds


FlyLight, as its name implies is a light installation made excellent by its clever use of tubes and lights. The installation makes use of 160 glass tubes that light up and respond to the viewer, while showing motion that mimics the movement of a flock of birds. The cleverly executed installation makes for a picturesque scenario. FlyLight has been designed by Lonneke Gordijn and Ralph Nauta in collaboration with engineers Klaas van der Molen and Luuk van Laake.

Artist makes impressive sculptures from found wood scraps


If the devil lies in the detail, he must be having a field day in these sculptures created by Dutch artist Ron van der Ende. All of the artist’s sculptures are made from reclaimed wood, and even the colors there are original colors of the reclaimed wood. Ron sifts through dumpsters in Rotterdam, picking up things like doors, cupboards and planks.

Last supper painted on skateboards, features Mexican wrestlers


“The Last Fiesta” has been painted on lines of the last supper, except the part where it is painted on skateboard decks. Also, there’s another little difference; Christ and the apostles have been replaced with masked Mexican wrestlers. There is no proof so we assume a no-holds barred match followed the last fiesta. The painting is the creation of Chris Parks.

String and nails installation salutes computer loadscreens of the ancient age


Danish design studio Dark Matters has created this installation that takes viewers back to loadscreens that you might have seen a decade or two ago on your computers. The videos come across as screensavers, and this type used to be very popular during that time, because nobody wanted to see the flying windows.

Photographing bureaucrats around the world


Behind all those colors, cultures, races and regions, there is one man who just refuses to change. No matter what part of the world you are in, you will run into this person. Even if it is a different race, color or region, bureaucrats are all the same, perhaps a result of their close proximity to politicians. Dutch photographer Jan Banning traveled the world, going through numerous countries, and photographing bureaucrats their. The photographer visited eight countries; Bolivia, China, France, India, Liberia, Russia, the United States, and Yemen. Showing unannounced at the doors, the photographer never gave the bureaucrats a chance to tidy up the offices or change appearances. Some of these images are surprising and eye openers, to say the least.

Call of Duty screenshots used to depict the horrors of modern warfare


Photographs of wars and soldiers on missions have been around, probably ever since the camera met the printing paper. War photographs from Thibault Brunet however, do not include the photographer venturing into dangerous war zones, or for that matter, even soldiers don’t need to be at the front for these photographs. Brunet has chosen a very unique medium for his photographs, which basically are screenshots from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
