Moon Bunny by Dutch Artists Florentijn Hofman

Florentijn Hofman’s Latest Work is a Gigantic Bunny Gazing Up at the Moon in Taiwan

” Located at the Dayuan Town Naval Base in Taiwan, “Moon Rabbit” is an enormous yet adorable bunny that’s propped up against a grassy military bunker gazing up at the moon. To create the large-scale work, which is based on the East Asian folklore about a rabbit that lives on the moon, Hofman first created a wood and Styrofoam frame. And to achieve the fluffiness but also keep it weather-resistant the artist used over 12,000 sheets of Tyvek paper, a material normally reserved for home builders. Unfortunately, the bunny caught fire  as workers were trying to disassemble it. But its counterpart can still be seen on the moon, or at least that’s how the story goes.”

Gorgeous Animated Penny Arcade Video ‘Ma’agalim’ by Jane Bordeaux’s

“Please take a few moments to immerse yourself in this lovely new music video for folk country trio Jane Bordeaux’s ‘Ma’agalim.’ The animated short transports us inside a device inspired by components from an old penny arcade device that contains a perpetually moving landscape where people go about their daily lives. The attention to detail in colour and texture of every frame is breathtaking, but isn’t surprising given director Uri Lotan‘s previous work at Pixar and Disney.”

Meet Animal Sculptor Edouard Martinet

“When looking at these perfectly assembled sculptures by French artist Edouard Martinet it’s difficult to believe the raw materials he used ever existed in another form. Yet every head, thorax, leg, wing, and eye from these assorted creatures was once part of a car, bicycle, typewriter, or other found object. Reading through his material lists it becomes clear how completely thorough and judicious Martinet is in selecting the perfect objects to realize his vision, truly a master of his craft.”

In general, Master Sugoi is the author of classical origamis shaped like animals and creatures but this time, he wanted to speak to more pervert souls.”
