The Illest Photos Of The Most Surreal.

When photography stops to tell the concrete reality and try to represent a concept, when the image alludes to something, it becomes visual narrative, surreal and fantastic, a concept art.  A very young artist, spokesman of this photographic genre, is the American David Talley, founder and creative director of Concept Collaboration, a worldwide movement dedicated to conceptual photography.  With a touch a bit emo(tional) and an image processing similar to the dark one of Tim Barton, his goal seeks to highlight “the darkest moment before an explosion of light”.  Through the use of the movement and the rarefied atmospheres, David translates the emotions of real life in photographs from the positive impact that try to capture vulnerability and disturbances. Every place, every natural element help him enrich his narrative skills and provides in visual emotions.  The reality, after all, is only a starting point.

10 Examples Of The Worlds Best Plating.


When you hear the words “goose liver”, not too many pleasant images come to mind, and I highly doubt the picture above is one of them.   The beauty of plating food is that you can make art out of food, and yes, the photo above is actually goose liver.  I was attempting to plate some ground lamb, rice, and zucchini, recently, and I considered the difficulty involved with making food look as beautiful as it can for the people who will be eating it.  EliteTraveler has compiled a photo gallery of 10 of what they consider the most beautiful plates in the world.  Check the method.

A Solar Floating Resort.

Italian industrial designer Michele Puzzolante has come up with a conceptual floating luxury hotel suite he claims could be entirely self-powering thanks to the dye-sensitized solar cells which would be integrated into the vessel’s walls.  Puzzolante suggests his “Solar Floating Resort” could be navigated along exotic coast lines, while its six resident passengers observe marine wildlife thanks to its underwater “observation bulb”.

Stuffed With The Paper Cuts.

Jen Stark uses piles of paper and than cuts them to reveal colored layers.  This is by far one of the most interesting style’s I’ve ever come across.

8-Bit Movie Posters.

No matter how far technology comes, there will always be a certain respect for the old school.  One of the first things people of my generation remember from the digital world are 8-Bit images.  That being said, getting a look at certain CGI heavy movies from an 8-bit perspective is quite an interesting thing.  Check the method below.

Dear Photograph…

Photography is something that has always captivated me, and every so often I’ll find a collection of photographs that truly fascinating.  About a year ago, I put up a post titled “Reflections” that showed an interesting link between peoples past and present, and this collection runs in the same vein.  These photographs are real life meshes of the past and the present using vintage photos displayed in the exact same place they were originally taken years later.  Check the method.

The Camera Ball.

When you think of the concepts of ‘Cameras’ and ‘Balls’ at the same time, something involving Annette Schwarz might come to mind, but this is far from what you may be thinking. Who hasn’t seen an amazing photo, like the one above, and wanted to be able to do it for themselves? It can now be possible using one of the most clever gizmos we’ve seen in some time: the “throwable panoramic camera”. Developed by the Computer Graphics Group in Berlin, it allows a user to take 36o degree pictures just by tossing it in the air.

How it works is simple, inside the ball are 36 mobile phone cameras, all set to go off at precisely the same time when the ball senses that it is at the height of a toss.  As it detects that it is starting to fall (using an accelerometer), it fires all of it’s cameras, putting image data to storage. Then, using a custom application, users can put together some pretty stunning images.

Parkour… In The 1930’s.

Parkour – The non-competitive sport originating in France of traversing mainly urban landscapes by running, climbing and jumping. Free Runners run along a route, attempting to navigate obstacles in the most efficient way possible, using only their bodies. Skills such as vaulting, rolling, swinging and wall scaling are employed. Parkour can be practiced anywhere, but areas dense with obstacles are preferable and it is most commonly practiced in urban areas.

This athletic art form is what most people would consider a fairly recent “trend”.  But when I came across this video, I realized that the physical acts involved in Parkour have been practiced as early as the 1930’s in the U.S.  Check the method below.

Is Your Child Teething?

Yesterday was father’s day, and I spent the day talking to a few of my friends lucky enough to be proud parents.  One of the complaints I heard from a homegirl of mine was that her son was being an “asshole-ish version of Satan himself” because his adult teeth were growing in.  I don’t remember all of what it was like going through the process (cept for realizing the tooth fairy was my mom noisily shoving a dollar under my pillow every other month while she thought I was asleep), but coincidentally I came across a scientific art piece that helped me shed some light on her predicament.  Below is a REAL skull of a human child with their adult teeth growing in.  Seeing it made me understand that sometimes kids go through things I’m happy I don’t have to.  So if you have a little one who’s adult teeth are coming in, cut them some slack.  It can be a painful process.

If that was my face, I'd be cranky too.

The FYF Residence.

Los Angeles-based architecture practice patterns has sent us images of their recently finished single-family house in Argentina, ‘FYF Residence’.  Located in the outskirts of rosario, a city approximately 300 km north of buenos aires, the single-storey dwelling aims to challenge the flat homogeneity of the traditional neighborhood it sits adjacent.  The 200 m2 project was conceived as a monolithic form punctuated by subtle inflections that establish a complex spatial identity for both the exterior and the interior.  Through a number of folds and bends, the cast-on-site reinforced concrete shell forms the body of the house; perforations in areas of transition serves as openings, resulting in an internal environment that is well lit, cross-ventilated, and offers oblique views.  The effects of transparency and mass is explored through systematic cuts of both the facade and roof.

Located within viewing distance from the main communal area, a pliant pool stretches the body of the house while activating a dynamic sequence of movement and views to the landscape beyond.  The projecting roof near the pool area is broken down into a number of flat compartments that altogether form the complex curvature of the house’s surface.  The clients, who are an agricultural engineer and a landscape designer, had requested that a small greenhouse be integrated into the design.  Instead of placing it in a separate and autonomous structure on the site, the architects situated the green house in a continuous spatial sequence with the interior social spaces.  A small curving lightwell defines the central corridor of the house while illuminating the interior with natural daylight.
