Minimalist Bird Photography

I've been on a kick of minimalism in photography lately. I found this set over at mmminmal that is a great roundup of birds and their creative, nature backdrop.

Chewing Gum Street Art

Ben Wilson has a rather curious hobby - he spends everyday on the streets of North London - painting on the blobs of chewing gum that deface London's pavements. Apparently painting on the pavement is illegal so he paints on chewing gum that is stuck to it. And not just painting them, but the attention to detail to create miniature works of art.

Check out a set of his gum art.

Tube Television

Photographs of tube televisions the moment they are switched off.
The Luminant Point Arrays show tube televisions in the moment they are swithed off. The television picture breaks down and creates a structure of light. The pictures refuse external reference and broach the issue of the difference between abstraction and concretion in photography. The breakdown of the television picture discribes the breakdown of the reference. The product is self-referential photography.

Book Bed

Curl up to a good book just got a whole other meaning. A clever idea to create and photograph a bed in the shape of an open book. A space to sleep at night, which is also a place of play for the children thanks to the possibility “of turning” a page and of making it possible to create a space dedicated to leisure and literature.

Little Art, Great Message.

Street art doesn't have to be massive billboard propaganda. Kate Sokoler does the exact opposite with the mini street art.
