Lucky Dog Day Camp in Kalispell, MT had a birthday party and used our glasses in their photo booth. Bailey and Bailee look fantastic in our Googly Eyes Glasses, Moose is enchanting in Hypno Glasses, Tank looks Marxian in our Disguise Glasses, Doris is fantastically feline in our Cat Eye Glasses and Milo is animated in our Anime Glasses. We hope we get invited next time! We’ll bring the kibble.

See more cuteness here!

Dutch artist Henk Hofstra took Wilhelmina Square in the city of Leeuwarden, one of the largest city squares in Holland, and filled it with 8 massive eggs, all sunny side up and measuring nearly 100 feet in diameter. The yolks are enormous domes ranging in size from 8 to 25 feet in diamater. He calls this whimsical installation an Art Eggcident.

"I hope it becomes a meeting place with room for art," says Henk. "Art that is different than a framed picture on the wall or a boring bronze sculpture. Art that shows us a different look, surprises us, or makes us angry or happy. Art that allows photographers to grab their cameras and arouses journalists. Art that evokes emotion, or provokes wild laughter."

Although Hofstra had to spend 4 months in various planning meetings with concerned companies and local authorities simply to get permission to create his colossal public art project, it took only 2 days to physically create all of those enormous eggs.

History knew the truth. History was the most inhuman product of humanity. It scooped up the whole of human will and, like the goddess Kali in Calcutta, dripped blood from its mouth as it bit and crunched.

Artist Rogan Brown creates incredibly elaborate and delicate paper sculptures using layers of hand-cut watercolor paper. His latest piece, entitled Outbreak, is “based on the smallest structures found within the human body: cells, microbes, pathogens, and neurons.” Brown spent 4 months painstakingly designing, cutting and assembling this awesomely intricate piece, which he describes as an exploration “of the microbiological sublime.”

Here Brown explains a bit about his creation process:

"I am inspired in part by the tradition of scientific drawing and model making, and particularly the work of artist-scientists such as Ernst Haeckel. But although my approach involves careful observation and detailed “scientific” preparatory drawings, these are always superseded by the work of the imagination; everything has to be refracted through the prism of the imagination, estranged and in some way transformed."

Further proof that Art + Science = Awesome
