Atmospheric & Eerie Sculptures Built in Aquariums

Mariele Neudecker creates fantastic sculptures inside large water filled aquariums. Using an intriguing combination of materials, including chemicals to create eerie atmospheric effects, her “Tank Works” invite viewers to move closer and explore the world within.

Her sculptures take their inspiration from romantic paintings and photographs, using lighting to create life-like sunbeams and dense fog around sculptures of mountains, trees and even a model sailing ship. Like the real world, the chemistry-based atmosphere in the tank has a life of its own, slowly changing over time to create new environments.

Interview with Burning Man Artist Kirsten Berg

Kirsten Berg (featured previously) is one of the most well known yogis in the Ashtanga world, with people flying all over the globe to attend her classes in Thailand, Bali and the States, yet for 3 months of the year, she commits her time and energy to gifting amazing art installations at Burning Man. This year, her installation called (In)Visible was supported by the Burning Man organization and had a prominent location next to the Temple of Grace. The sculpture was a 20ft high column of faceted cubes that contained iridescent windows to reflect a variety of colors throughout the day and night.

We had the opportunity to talk with Kirsten Berg regarding her inspiration, lifestyle and future plans for her art.

Watch Fabian Oefner Cover a New Ferrari in Glowing Paint

This isn’t your everyday paint job. Artist Fabian Oefner (featured previously) recently worked with Ferrari on a project that would see their 2015 California T covered in streaks of glowing paint. First he traveled to the Ferrari headquarters in Maranello, Italy, where he test drove the new car

This Incredible Hulk Sculpture is Totally Nuts (Yes, It’s Made From Them)

I’d like to say this Hulk sculpture is life-like, but we’re talking about a made-up superhero here. Let’s just say finding it down a dark alley would make you consider turning around…

Built by Thailand’s BanHunLek, the piece was built from scrap metal like most of the work from their shop. Pulling apart old rusting cars to salvage the metal bits is all in a day’s work. In the case of their latest Hulk sculpture (it’s not their first) the weathered surface just makes it much more tough. The most impressive part: look close, and it’s made almost entirely from nuts welded together.

Springfield from The Simpsons Illustrated as a Dark and Moody Town

No matter how dark the humor on the Simpsons’ can get, the iconic show always has that bright cheery aesthetic we’ve grown to love. Austin-based artist and illustrator Tim Doyle had another look in mind when he started his UnReal Estate series back in 2012, re-envisioning the worlds of fictional television shows as dark and rundown places. His Simpsons-themed work is fantastically moody and might give you the impression Springfield is far from fictional.

This New Book Features the Darkest LEGOs We’ve Ever Seen

These certainly aren’t your kid’s LEGOs. Famed brick building artist and author Mike Doyle is back with another book of LEGO-based art – this time with a decidedly spooky theme. With chapters titled Creepy Crawlers, Dark Towers, Indulgences, Evil Attunement, Pits of Fire, and even Riot Girls, the new book, called Beautiful LEGO 2: Dark, is decidedly lacking in fairy tale castles or race cars.

These Artists are Bringing Andy Warhol Back for a One-of-a-Kind Live Collaboration

Only icons stand the test of time, and this is one of them. 28 years ago, Andy Warhol collaborated with Absolut to create its Absolut Warhol painting. Now on October 1, Absolut will try to connect with him once again.

Hundreds of Mountaineers Pose for Incredible Photos in the Alps (No, It’s Not Photoshop)

Towering mountains are often breathtaking, but these images have something more. Swiss photographer Robert Bösch has been traveling to snowy, high-altitude peaks – often bringing along a huge crew of mountaineers that can number in the hundreds. There, the red suited crew create impressively choreographed images that interact with the tall peaks, sheer cliffs and white snow fields that surround them. No. None of these images are digitally manipulated.

Matthieu Bourel Slices Up the Past in His Surreal Photo Collages

Berlin-based artist Matthieu Bourel slices up the past to create these fantastically surreal images. Famous faces like Gregory Peck and Yul Brynner multiply into forms which are both person and sculpture, disturbing and beautiful.

Bourel says he likes “to evoke a fake history or inspire nostalgia for a period in time that never truly existed.”

Waltz on the Walls: Oakland’s City Hall Transforms into a Magical Aerial Stage

Taking to the walls of Oakland’s City Hall in California, dancers Amelia Rudolph and Roel Seeber suspended from windows above to put on a fantastic aerial waltz. The two Bandaloop dancers performed the graceful act during the Art + Soul Festival and filmed the first person experience using GoPro cameras mounted to their body. Simply magical.
