Earlier this year, we introduced you to one of our favorite installations on Earth, Matt Elson’s incredible infinity boxes, which we first discovered at Burning Man. The socially interactive mirror boxes require 2 participants to activate their magic so they are a great way to turn strangers into friends.

It’s always fun to see a cartoon character re-vamped by an artist in a way that you’d never expect. Wilma Flintstone as a pin-up girl, Smurfette as a sexpot, Iron Man Pixar style, and the Nightmare Before Christmas’ Jack & Sally as realistic people are just a few of the clever pieces that you’ll find in our Sub-Reddit of the week AlternativeArt.

Where can you play kick the can with Ernest Hemingway, stand on stage with Freddie Mercury, and kick back with Alan G Shepard in the mission control room at NASA all in the same day? It’s not a dream, it’s not an acid trip, it’s Old School Cool. Old School Cool is a Sub-Reddit where users share old photos of people looking awesome.
