Portraits of Melting Icebergs

Portraits of Melting Icebergs

Artist Simon Harsent finds his calling in photographing icebergs. This set in particular takes a good, hard look at what may be loosely called the life span of an iceberg. The portraits start with massive icebergs as they reach Greenland’s Disco Bay from the Ilulissat Icefjord and goes on to the east coast of Newfoundland, where the icebergs have been mostly battered, melted and traveled hundreds of miles. You could buy individual portraits of the icebergs, or the book here.

Inviting Popsicles You Can Never Eat

Inviting Popsicles You Can Never Eat

Artist Johnny Hermann made these popsicles as an experiment in nostalgia. It’s like hundreds of flavors right before our eyes, waiting for us to dig in. But therein lies the trouble.

Portrait Made From Coffee Ring Stains

Things as mundane and troublesome as coffee ring stains can actually turn to something as brilliant as this poster. We’re assuming Taiwanese musician Jay Cou’s songs inspired artist Hong “Red” Yi to drink a shitton of coffee, without using coasters. Yi managed to place her cup and saucer so well that the effort ended up being a very impressive portrait of the musician. We got to hand it to her, one does not simply make art with coffee ring stains.

The Gorgeous Union of Steampunk and Papercraft

The Gorgeous Union of Steampunk and Papercraft

We’ve seen the amazing papercraft of Phillip Valdez before, and we’re delighted to see another round. Made in his inimitable style, the Victorian Steampunk Iron Horse matches its humble paper origins to the impressive and strong metallic looks. It is the attention to detail that makes the Iron Horse all the more formidable. The gears, cogs, meters, levers and pipes are very clearly visible, making the paper sculpture look quite “functional.”

Iceland Seen From the Sky [pics]

Nowadays it seems when we get talking about natural beauty, we’re talking about Iceland. This time, we have aerial photographs of the wondrous landscapes. The shots were captured by photographer Sandro Santioli as he flew above the landscape in a Cessna aircraft, clocking in over 70 hours of flight time and brought back these wondrous gems that make Iceland look like a wonderful and somewhat alien, but enchanting world.
