These aerial views of coast side communities before and after Hurricane Sandy roared across the East Coast offer impressive details of the power of the storm. Boats were moved from harbors into neighborhood streets, piers were demolished, roofs ripped off, and sand was pushed into and over blocks and blocks of homes.

Have you moved recently? Are you of the age, say, late 20s, early 30s, where at somepoint in your life owning, buying, and collecting CDs was something you did so now you have over a thousand just taking up space? Well, British artist Bruce Monro has found a place for 65,000 recycled Cds: make waterlilies. Why didn't we think of that?

Yes, please, we will live here. This is the Snow House, a place where showering might be a tad exposed, but the layout and architectural set-up is undeniable. The house was constructed by Milan based design firm, Santambrogio, and is built throughout with a blue hued glass. The book cases, bed, and most everything is constructed with that same blue hued glass. Again, where do you shower?

Bryan Nash Gill takes recycled lumber and coats the surface in ink and washi paper, and creates these fantastic impressions with his fingers and fingernails to get these amazing patterns of tree rings. Not to get sappy so early in the day, but this just shows you how amazing nature's structure really is.

Brigitte Zieger’s created this fantastic outdoor installation for the Les Environnementales Biennial of Contemporary Art at Tecomah, an environmental studies school outside of Paris. She created The Shadow, the impression of an aeroplane flying overhead... only in her work, the shadow is permanent.

You may be asking yourself, why would I want a snow globe with a silo or 4 in the middle? That doesn't seem really wintery or nice to have out when grandma comes over. UK-based agency Dorothy created this No Globes snow globe to protest the building of dirty coal-fired power stations. Shake that globe, and black, disgusting dirt-filled remnants come out of the towers.

One thing we have learned (of many) as we have been traveliing through Sri Lanka this past week is how ugly and eye-soring a power line can be in lush, beautiful environments. That is why we love the Deer shaped hydro tower concept designed by Moscow-based Design Depot.

We have shown you snow works before on the site, but these in particular, by Sonja Hinrichsen, are impressive in that the artist uses snowshoes to create these elabroate patterns in the snow. One of the most impressive things about this? There is a ton of patterns and connecting shapes here, meaning Hinrichsen is taken hours upons hours to create and then document the work.

William De Kooning was once quoted saying that any idea is good enough. Becoming a successful artist with a thought provoking body of work does not necessitate a politically radical output of visual media. What is important is to develop an immersive practice of poesy, enthusiasm, and intelligence. Malin Gabriella Nordin not only has developed an immersive practice but has chosen the strangely fascinating and banal topic of rocks.
