Photography by Kevin Corrado

Take a look at these crazy scenes gone awry by photographer Kevin Corrado. Based in Connecticut, Corrado creates these wacky images that make no sense but have an interesting and fragmented narrative. Corrado views the world in unusual ways and presents that perspective to his viewers. He says, “We are all artists who love expressing our visions.”

His surreal scenes include a body broken into pieces, a beach filled with raining umbrellas, and a body with missing parts walking down the center of train tracks. The visual connection of his photography is the creative disconnect of objects. The visual patterns make no complete sense but, somehow, successfully come together into a unique and complete photographic frame. Viewing his work is like being caught in an exciting dream and not wanting to wake up!

Bishan Public Library

This incredible building was created to bring forth the elements and functions of a tree house – an environment for learning via a journey of discovery and play. This metaphor was well executed through the use of skylights, trellises and coloured glass that transform incoming daylight into an artwork of sun rays, that simulates light filtered through the foliage of trees. The library is raised above the obscurity of its neighbourhood and sets out to stir the curiosity of the community. It amazes me how the group, LOOK Architects, transformed this everyday building into a work of art to inspire and pull the readers of that area. What are your thoughts on this library?

Architechtural models by Takanori Aiba

I am completely amazed by these incredible miniature bonsai architectural models by Takanori Aiba. The level of detail is breath taking.

Cultivating a modern Bonsai style by adding a theme of relationship between human and nature to a Japanese classical Bonsai style. It's is an experimental approach to turn out a modern Bonsai style that portraits the beauty of spiritual accordance between human and nature in miniature.

Do you like these interesting sculptures?

Wildlife photographer Marina Cano

Photographer Marina Cano has fallen in love with the beauty of nature and its creatures. The wildlife photographer has devoted three years of her life to a passion project that exposes the scenic and spiritual appeal of this world's natural environments. In her book Cabárceno, titled after the largest natural wildlife park in Europe, Cano captures stunning images of animals in their natural habitat.

It is a privilege to take notice of these activity resemblances that, according to the photographer, may very well go extinct with the man-enforced destruction of nature and its wildlife for the pursuit of consumerism. I'm completely awe struck by Cano's photographic motives of spreading environmental awareness, and you?

Half graffiti hotel room

Artist Tilt has created Panic Room inside the Au Vieux Panierhotel in Marseille, France. The unique hotel has five rooms which are redone annually by a different artist. In essence, they invite artists, graphic designers and painters into their rooms to create amazing and distinct atmospheres.
      The photos, taken just last month by designer and photographer Big Addict (aka Roudet Benjamin), speak for themselves. While one side of the room is decorated in stark white, the other has Tilt’s colourful graffiti spray painted all over, including the walls, the floor, and even the bed. Imagine walking into your hotel room and experiencing this! Tell me what you think.
