Macro Photography - insects in wonderland!

The WonderLand series by Nadav Bagim,  are one of the most amazing macro photos we’ve ever seen. By using a unique but rather simple and elegant artificial lighting and household objects (from vegetables to plastic bags), Nadav shot those photos  in a miniature studio on his kitchen’s table with a Canon EOS 60D Camera, and a Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro lens and Flashes. 

The insects were found in his apartment and on plants outside his window and were not harmed during shooting. Such beautiful work and really impressive. We never thought insect can have that magical style photos, just like something out of a childhood storybook or a Disney/Pixar movie. And please notice, all those photos are real, NOT digital manipulations. [source]

Ribbon art for gift wrapping. Adorable!

Ribbonesia is the art project of illustrator Baku Maeda who, entranced by the often under-appreciated beauty and simplicity of ribbons, decided to launch a product line completely around the art of the ribbon. Combining his love for animals, Maeda set about creating a zoo of creatures like dogs, cats, birds, and other cute animals. This simple repetition of twist and bend sublime such rich expression of animals and it often capture the essence of life. Such talented work! I hope I can know how to make those lovely animal ribbons which will definitely help to improve my gift wrapping and give others an memorable impression. [source]

3D Lego Soldiers!

The 2011 Sarasota Chalk Festival featured this amazing chalk recreation of the iconic terracotta army of Qin Shi Huang, China’s first emperor. With the soldiers recast as LEGO figures, the huge 3D piece was an incredible show of the artists’ talents.

Created by Planet Streetart (which consists of artists Leon Keer, Ruben Poncia, Remko van Schaik and Peter Westerink), the large piece of pavement art is stunningly realistic – but you have to stand in just the right place to see it.

USB watch

The USB watch concept by Yoon-jin Gon, Yoon-tae Myoung & Kim Sung Hun is designed as a simple way of carrying your memory stick in style – on your wrist.

A 10-minute romp with the computer charges it enough to tell you the correct time for a week. What’s more, every time you hook it up it syncs in automatically with the computer’s time. You can also check the current memory status at the touch of a button. This is a clever integration of functionality, utility and simplicity.

Otherwise it will be a great gift for person like me who always misplaced my memory stick! [source]

Beautiful Hair Dressing with fresh vegetables and flowers

Would you ever strut down the street with your hair looking like this? Japanese artist Takayacreated these “fresh” hair designs by adding raw vegetables and blossoming flowers to styled hair. 

The designs are worn at weddings and live performances and are not very common to see. I have to say, it is pretty interesting idea, specially the vegetable one. We’re used to seeing flowers in women’s hair, but a bouquet of broccoli, radishes, and bell peppers certainly not something normal to put on the head. [source]
