So, really sorry because I couldn't answer the comments! I'll do it as soon as possible!
Brian Dettmer, a New York-based artist known as the Book Surgeon, uses tweezers, knives, scalpels and other surgical tools to dissect and carve old books into intricate and beautiful sculptures.
Dettmer’s work has a sort of vintage touch to it because he uses old books – maps, encyclopedias, textbooks, manuals, and any other sort of literature that he can turn into an interesting piece of art.
"I am a freelance photographer from Macedonia. I’m very fascinated by the nature and the wild animals – they are my greatest passion and inspiration for photography.
I compensate the lack of wild animals in my surroundings by taking pictures of animals in a zoo nearby, where it’s much harder to take pictures because of many obstacles like bars and cages. However, as it can be seen for the pictures, my intentions are to capture the zoo animals as if they were in their real environment."
Architect and environmentalist Peter Bahouth designed and built this beautiful trio of treehouses linked by bridges in an Atlanta forest, which also happens to be his backyard. Inspired by the treehouses and adventures of his youth, the idea was to create a sort of fort for grown-ups. The three houses dubbed “Mind,” “Body,” and “Spirit,” include a living room and bedroom with a special bed that slides out for an improved view of the forest below. The photos here were taken for Jane Field-Lewis’ book My Cool Shed, provided courtesy photographerLindsay Appel. (via iGNANT, CJ Who)
Illustrator and designer Akihiro Mizuuchi designed a modular system for creating edible chocolate LEGO bricks. Chocolate is first poured into precisely designed moulds that after cooling can be popped out and used as regular LEGOs. It’s hard to determine exactly how functional they are, it seems like he had success in building a number of different things, though I can only imagine how quickly they might melt in your hands, but I suppose that’s beside the point; this is two of the greatest things in the world fused together.
A new trend in gardening has gardeners creating all sorts of creative garden arrangements and fairy gardens out of broken pots, proving that even a broken pot can be useful and beautiful.
Such pots can be created either from the shards left from an accidental break or from a carefully planned cut.
Not at home today! I'll postt naarmamo day 10 tomorrow... And answer comments!
We enjoy quite a few unprecedented technologies today, but much more of the stuff that we use has been around for ages. Ancient humans may not have been able to text or upload selfies, but they enjoyed everyday objects like flushable toilets, chewing gum and nice purses just like we do.
Inspired by imgur’s post, we decided to make an extended list of the oldest examples of everyday objects. Keep in mind that these are only the oldest surviving examples of these objects – many of these may have existed or are known to have existed even earlier.
1,500 years old socks
Oldest sunglasses 800 years old
Oldest flute 40,000 years old
many other things on the site...
