A Carpet Made Entirely of Toy Army Soldiers

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 28, 2013
It may hurt your feet, but the design and formation is incredible. The collective, We Make Carpets, consisting of Marcia Nolte, Stijn van der Vleuten and Bob Waardenburg, "mix traditional skills and a critical view of the consumer society in unusual carpets." In this instance, they made a carpet out of plastic green and gold toy soldiers, in conjunction with Dutch Design Week 2010.

Cyprien Gaillard and the Neon Cleveland Indian

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 28, 2013
Sometimes, the randomness of what icons make it into fine art blow our minds. Yes, the logo and mascot of the Cleveland Indians baseball team is iconic and has a certain vintage Americana design, but we would never thought it would be the basis of a fine art project, or public art project, in Berlin of all places. In 2011, fine artist Cyprien Gaillard placed the 10m tall Neon Indian on the Haus der Statistik at the Alexanderplatz in Berlin, putting it completely out of its baseball context.

He had proposed an LED light installation consisting of 25,000 white LEDs, spaced a foot apart for the west span of the bridge. On March 5, 2013, this will become a reality. The lights will have the function of changing, making abstract patterns based loosely on water, traffic, and weather patterns.

Dirty Humor by Mr Bingo

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 28, 2013
'Some say he's the 'Master of pens'. Some call him the 'Justin Bieber of drawing'. Some say he f**ks about for a living.' Personally, I love the work of Mr. Bingo in all of it's raw, unedited, dirty humored glory. So come around children, let me show you a little something. Grandmother got a new tattoo.
