French photographer Renaud Marion has taken the wheels of a classic automobiles in his new series, Air Drive. Although we find this series maddening because of the absence of floating cars in the world today, with most futurists getting this all wrong (we will probably have to wait until 2030 or something), Marion's series gives these cars a new look, a fresh vantage point, and an appreciation for how well-designed some of the silhouettes really are.

Juxtapoz // Monday, November 12, 2012
We woke up this morning to a unique update in our mailbox, a friend sending us pictures of the incredible hair sculptures by French hairdreseer, Tress Agoche. The artists note, "it is a vision of a new era which gives birth to an evolved future where the audience experiences the gift that is woman. In this, we create a capsule of work that becomes timeless and unbound, a vision for future observers to witness. Indefinite and inevitable, this future will exist."
