From formodesign comes an astounding piece of architectural vision. A House on a Water. Fully sustainable. In tune with its environment. I'm not sure how widely implemented such a design could be. But, it is an inspiration to think that, w/ climate change as it is, this is where we could all be living someday.
The architects behind this masterpiece are Jedrzej Lewandowski and Lukasz Skirzynski of formodesign. These are mockups.

Frank Lloyd Wright as everyone probably knows was the genius who brought us The Guggenheim museum in our beloved New York City as well as other masterpieces like the Falling Water house in Bear Run PA that i'll be showcasing now. He practiced 'organic' styled architechture meaning the materials and style of the property were built out of their location. Wooded areas would see the property use alot of wood for example.
He also built around nature rather than through it. And the video is just plain cool. Bon Appetite.
Gareth Pugh isn't really interested in whats going on right now. Rather, he's interested in what you'll be wearing after the bombs have dropped or the zombie epidemic has just been brought under control. Feathery headgarbs to shield you from the now ultraviolet shifted sun? Leather trenches to run out for some non nuclear infected water? Going out for your friends Mad Max and Fist of the North Star's birthdays? He's serious. And, you should be serious about him too for our soothsayers are limited these days. Vision is at a premium and he's got some to spare. Partake!

3D Painting WOW!
The splendid paintings entirely carried out with the gouache, by the artist Kazuki Takamatsu. One returned very succeeded with strange characters, by this graduate painter of Tohoku University off Art and Design. To discover in the continuation and on the gallery.
I, for one, am excited that paint is moving away from the abstract and back to the center of realism or ( in this case) hyperrealism where we can appreciate properly the skill of the artist more than what he/she is trying to say. These hyperrealistic endeavours by Eric Zener are another example of the direction I hope Art is taking. Now for the action.

This is pretty cool. They're glass figurines of different viruses including E.Coli, H1N1, Smallpox and others. Nerdy huh? Just like I know you like it. They're made by Luke Jerram and, well, let me have him tell you in his own words.
"Its great to be exploring the edges of scientific understanding and visualisation of a virus. Scientists aren't able to answer many of the questions I ask them, such as how the RNA is exactly fitted within the Capsid? At the moment, the technology isn't there to answer all these questions for certain. I'm also pushing the boundaries of glassblowing. Some of my designs simply can't be created in glass, Some are simply too fragile and gravity would cause them to collapse under their own weight. So there's a very careful balancing act that needs to take place, between the limitations of current scientific knowledge and glassblowing techniques." - Luke Jerram

Michael Jeffrey Jordan along with his Hall of Fame classmates, David Robinson, John Stockton and Jerry Sloan, will be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame over the next couple of days in Springfield, Mass. I can't express to you how much Michael Jordan has meant to me as an individual growing up. From back when I had hoop dreams to when I got my first pair of Jordans, his desire to compete and win left an indelible mark on my life. To celebrate him, iconic graffiti artist and founder of the Obey brand, Shepard Fairey has created this poster of Jordan dunking.
