You do not know how much I want to touch this gorgeous piece of work…

this thing called art is really dangerous

Go check out Agnes Cecile’s lovely work at her tumblr. It’s also nice to see videos of her process.

Sriracha covered bacon?? Point the way!

What trendy food should you eat?

Among the growing number of translations we’ve received, we found it to be no coincidence that we were sent both Hebrew and Arabic translations at nearly the same time. We paired these languages with the hamsa, a non-religious symbol of protection, blessings, power and strength that is recognized across the entire Middle East.

A beautiful calligraphic hamsa version of the Holstee Manifesto, one of 5 timeless manifestos for the creative life, in Hebrew and Arabic by designer Josh Berer, with proceeds benefiting Seeds of Peace.

If you are any good with those old “magic eye” posters and interested in anatomy, check out vovel123’s incredible gallery of stereogram CT scans. There are nearly 700 incredibly cool stereograms waiting to be seen in all their 3D glory.

These take a little practice to get right, but luckily after several years of reading biochemistry papers I can do stereograms in my sleep (you biochemists and crystallographers out there know what I’m talkin’ about, right?).

Click the images to make them big, for starters. If you allow your eyes to cross a little, then the two outside images will cross over in the center. Relax your eyes there and don’t fight the weirdness. You’ll be seeing 3D before you know it!

The full gallery is way too much fun.

Living Wall

These vegetated surfaces don’t just look pretty. They have other benefits as well, including cooling city blocks, reducing loud noises, and improving a building’s energy efficiency.What’s more, a recent modeling study shows that green walls can potentially reduce large amounts of air pollution in what’s called a “street canyon,” or the corridor between tall buildings.

For the study, Thomas Pugh, a biogeochemist at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany, and his colleagues created a computer model of a green wall with generic vegetation in a Western European city. Then they recorded chemical reactions based on a variety of factors, such as wind speed and building placement.

The simulation revealed a clear pattern: A green wall in a street canyon trapped or absorbed large amounts of nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter—both pollutants harmful to people, said Pugh. Compared with reducing emissions from cars, little attention has been focused on how to trap or take up more of the pollutants, added Pugh, whose study was published last year in the journal Environmental Science & Technology.

That’s why the green-wall study is “putting forward an alternative solution that might allow [governments] to improve air quality in these problem hot spots,” he said.Compared with reducing emissions from cars, little attention has been focused on how to trap or take up more of the pollutants, added Pugh, whose study was published last year in the journal Environmental Science & Technology.

I want one of these in my house. Of course, one made out of 6000 light bulbs is a bit large for my space, but it must be an enchanting experience.
