Dutch artist Edwin Deen's spray paint sprinkler system that shoots rainbow colors at white walls in order to make a better drippy day has been circulating throughout the web over the past year, and we finally did some investigation about a video of the work, and came across it this morning. Now, if you ever need your bedroom, or perhaps your child's bedroom, covered in rainbows, we have somebody for you to commission. The effect is quite wonderful.

Who knew mustard could be such an identifier. Kevin Van Aelst, who has been on the site before for his transforming and reimagining everyday objects into something new entirely, just finished a series where he created fingerprints with everyday objects, including mustard, yarn, cassette tapes, and the topper, cat s#$t.
