A very creative series, the Rides of the Wild brings a touch of animals to classic cars. The artist’s idea is to go beyond renders and encourage the imagination of the viewer. Something that can hold interest of a viewer, rather than be a comment in passing. Swiss artist Frédéric Müller matches animals to classic cars.
Here’s a cute and surprisingly adorable video of cameraman Garth De Bruno Austin being approached by a wild rhino, requesting a belly rub. A wild animal approaching a human is quite surprising, and if the animal happens to be a rhino things aren’t quite likely to end on a happy note like this one. As Austin pointed out, he has filmed this rhino for a few years and has developed a level of trust.
There it is, ladies and gentlemen – the elusive northern water squirrel. Don’t mess with it, it has mad waterbending skills.
Does something like a friendly bear exist? I don’t know, but you couldn’t pay me enough to strike poses like these models with a 1400 pound bear. Incidentally, this sort of negative thinking also happens to be the reason of this awareness campaign photoshoot that features Russian models Maria Sidorova and Lidia Fetisova, along with Stephen, the bear.
Wallace the rabbit is the cutest beer delivering, cart pushing companion you could have hoped for. To quote from the video’s description:
This event marks the release of an epic accomplishment. I have been collaborating for the past year with my girlfriend’s pet rabbit to create performance art and “happenings” that capture this rabbit’s capabilities and worldly passions. In a million years, neither Wallace nor I would have guessed that our creative endeavors would take this route but after such a long journey we arrive at this significant moment.
Humans are cool. Animals are cool. Humans with animal heads, not cool at all, especially with the serenity that comes across in these images. There’s really no way to put aside the creepy feel that comes out of these images by multidisciplinary Venetian artist Francesco Sambo. For his project Bestiary, the artist delves into digitally manipulated images where human heads are swapped with, or mashed up with animal heads. Hell, even the koala… especially the koala, looks so very sinister.
Here’s documenting one kitty talent you never really considered, the hover kitty. Take a good look and be impressed by cats and their secret ability to hover.
Sometimes, you need heartwarming and cute. Like an adorable baby elephant blowing bubbles.
These bird inspired shoes take up the mantle of going from a tad strange to a whole new level of weird. The range starts with shoes that have slightly weird shape and bird claw-like heels. Then the range progresses into shoes that look increasingly like a bird, until you run into a shoe where you would feel like you’re shoving your foot into a taxidermied bird.
Got a minute and a half? Spend it watching Rodents on Turntables. The video delivers exactly what its name is, showing mice and hamsters run on top of a spinning turntable; and it is oddly fun to watch.
