Patience is a virtue. According to Beautiful/Decay, it took "Baptiste Debombourg 1200 chairs, 300 meters of steel tubes and 11 months to set up the installation in the middle of plaza du Bouffay in Nantes, France." Situated in a plaza with multiple coffee shops and cafes, the chairs represent a communal effect, and each cafe gets a unique vantage point of the sculpture.

Mike Gong hasn't lost his marbles. He's selling them. His intricate, pscychedelic designs, each a clash of bright colors, are embedded in tiny glass globes. These miniature glass art pieces range in diameter from about 13mm to 50mm, and as you turn them, the design shifts. They feature both abstract patterns and, in his Acid Eaters collection, the more direct: monstrous faces holding tabs of acid on their tongues.
