Marvel Superheroes Dream Team by Alex Tuis
Who among us hasn’t contemplated the tantalizing thought of assembling your own dream casting for your favorite fandom? Personally, I think Nathan Fillon should play everything ever, including the stage sets, props, and furniture, but if you’re gonna dream big like that, you might want to have some concept designs to back your vision up. Alex did just that so yes, let’s get Hologram Bruce Lee as Spider-Man before I have start making crazy demands.
Taking something inconceivably large and making it look like something extraordinarily small is an awesome feat. After viewing a bunch of tilt-shift photography, Italian artist Haari Tesla was inspired to experiment with applying the same photo manipulation technique to publicly distributed photos of celestial objects. Her efforts produced a captivating series entitled Illuminated Code From Space, in which stunning photos of galaxies, nebulae and supernovae look like beautiful microorganisms. Instead of looking out into space we’re peering down into a microscope.
"The initial idea for the series came from the Greek Neo-Platonic schema of macrocosm and microcosm. Essentially, this is the recognition that the same traits appear in entities of many different sizes. Plato wrote about how we see these patterns reproduced in all levels, from the largest scale (macrocosm, or the universe) all the way down to a microscopic level (also know as microcosm)."

Hailing from Saitama, Japan, Taku Obata’s wooden sculptures carry a remarkable sense of motion and energy as a series created after “B-Boyizm” should. Obata formed the hip hop group UNITYSELECTIONS in the late Nineties, and since then he has been refining their “tongue-almost-in-cheek” styles of dance, music, street art and design.
