At first glance I was almost certain that someone cleverly photoshopped a lawn inside York Minster Cathedral, but apparently this was the work of Wow! Grass! that temporarily ‘grassifies’ offices, cathedral, art spaces and even sofas.
The grass that they install is grown in a thick layer of felt, so there is no dirt left behind. When the event is over they roll it up and install it somewhere else.
Filmed in Moab, Utah at the Corona Arch, Devin Graham and his crew rigged up a massive pendulum rope swing. All you have to do is jump off the platform, free fall 130 feet, soar 10 feet above the ground, and shoot up another 100 feet. The guy who went first had to be insane. Check out the behind the scenes video for all the crazy details.
The are the same guys who filmed downhill trike racing at 50mph.

This afternoon I stumbled across the amazing relief paintings and installations by Gregory Euclide. The piece above, ”what clouded my receiving hand is the way I own sensation”, was created with acrylic, baby’s breath, found foam, mylar, pencil, pine needle, seedum, sponge, and vellum.
Below are a few other examples of Gregory’s work, including the album art for the upcoming Bon Iver album coming out tomorrow.

During a random conversation with strangers photographer Joshua Cripps learned of about Zebra Canyon while hiking in the Escalante National Monument in Utah. The journey to the canyon paid off with this stunning photo.
And this is the point in our story where we piss off the alien civilization that has colonized 7 miles below the surface of the sea. Cue Michael Bay screenplay.

Arnþór Ævarsson managed to capture both the Northern Lights and spewing lava in this incredible photo. Talk about being at the right place at the right time.
As a prelude to the current massive volcanic eruption in Eyjafjallajökull causing extensive air traffic disruption in Europe, a moderate eruption took place just days before on the east side of the volcano. The location provided an opportunity for up-close encounters with picturesque craters and lava flows, in contrast to the inaccessibility of the following eruption site at the top of the volcano. With a team of Jeep enthusiasts and other photography nerds, I was able to travel to the remote site of the eruption. …
At the farthest northern tip of Europe you will find the Nordkyn peninsula where nature rules every aspect of the land and daily life. Oslo-based design firm Neue Design Studio created a new dynamic identity system for Visit Nordkyn that is designed around the ever changing elements.
The visual identity is based on two main ingredients; our newly developed payoff, “Where nature rules,” and weather statistics from the Norwegian Meteorological Institute. A feed of weather statistics affects the logo to change when the direction of the wind or the temperature changes. On the website, the logo updates every five minutes. We developed a logo generator where Visit Nordkyn can download their logo to the exact weather conditions of that particular moment. Nordkyn is truly a place where nature rules, even over the visual identity.
