To celebrate International No Car Day, some Latvian bicyclists from the Let’s Bike It organization built a big, car-sized frame around their bikes to show how much space people waste when they commute by car instead of by bike.

»I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up!« by VFX artist Dave Fothergill. Awesome.
I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up!
Brooklyn-based artist Daniel Kukla photographed the interiors of animal enclosure at 15 different zoos across the US and Europe. He says in his Artist Statement: »We, as humans, go to great lengths to satisfy our desire for a connection with the natural world, especially in our interactions with wild and exotic animals. Zoos are the primary site for this relationship, but they often obscure the conflicts inherent in maintaining and displaying captive wild animals.«

It has been a while. I know. Late, but no less spectacular. In 2009, Brooklyn street artis Swoon and some of her friends cruised on homemade rafts made from New York City garbage from Koper, Slovenia to Venice, Italy. Called the Swimming Cities of Serenissima, the boats looked like something out of the 1990s post-apocalyptic movies ‘Tank Girl’ and ‘Waterworld’ sprinkled with a bit of swamp water. Not only the craft themselves was made from re-used material, (including modified Mercedes car engines), but the team also picked up more flotsam and jetsam on their crossing, which they installed in a »cabinet of wonders«. It looks like a lot of fun and performance appears to be really good. (via Global Yodel).
