UK-artist Mark Lascelles Thornton has created a series of stunning architectural drawings for a project entitled The Happiness Machine (love the title!). The intricate detail in these drawings is impressive, especially considering the size of the finished piece which will consist of eight 8 ft. by 5 ft. panels. See the complete piece on his blog.

Young Kingston-based artist Ben Giles creates beautiful and vibrant anatomical collages with a vintage touch. I especially enjoy his anatomical collages, in which he mixes anatomical diagrams with colorful flowers, plants, birds and butterflies. Check out his Flickr for more great collages!
Private Moon is an on-going photo series by renowned contemporary Russian artist Leonid Tishkov and photographer Boris Bendikov. It “is a visual poetic installation, open for interaction with humans and space. In its unusual position within a landscape, in a stretch of open country, inside some deserted accommodation or water-cooling towers, the artificial moon sheds its light on surrounding objects and offers viewers as they arrive or occasional passers-by a chance to experience the fairytale nature of our existence.”
Have a look at this amazing Crystal Dome. Located at Swarovski Crystal Worlds, a crystal-themed indoor theme park in Austria, the dome is lined with 595 mirrors that give visitors the feeling that they’ve stepped inside a crystal. The multi-faceted walls not only refract light, that shines in various colors, they also gradually reveal hidden works of art. As Swarovski states, “The Crystal Dome is a kaleidoscopic, precision-cut journey into the heart of crystal – right in the middle of the homeland of crystal itself.”
Colombian artist Diana Beltran Herrera created a new series of hummingbird sculptures using shimmering golden paper. Herrera placed the hummingbirds next to flowers to show how a “dynamic element” looks in comparison to a “static element.” She’s interested in “how they cooperate together and the importance of the position and shape they both have to have to allow them to create a harmonic union.”
