Miniature Entertainments photos by Sebastián Vargas

These tiny, masterfully downsized electronics and gaming systems are accurate down to the most minute details: the miniature television set flickers and plays static sounds while the diminutive Playstation sports an equally tiny controller, memory card, and Parappa the Rappa game disc. Rule #883 of the Internet: every thing’s better when it’s kawaii-sized.

かわいいー!

Crayon Chemistry Sets by QueInteresante

Learning to color within the lines is an important lesson as a child, and one I quite honestly still havent mastered, but kids’ brains are all spongey for new knowledge, so these specialized labels can help them learn their chemical compounds at the same time. These are stick-on labels you can buy in sets over at etsy. Force your kid to learn while they’re drawing on your walls!

Party Like It’s 1999 by Alexander Ramsey

Designed as part of a program for the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh that offered on-campus residents music and games from the 1990’s, so basically all the coolest gadgets, dead technology, and yo-yo’s. Ah, that rubs my nostalgia gland the right way. Sadly, no Prince nor pogs were included in this layout. Check out more detail shots at Alexander’s behance.

The iMacquarium by Jake Harms

Starting off as a personal project, which ballooned into so many personal requests, Jake kicked off his own Kickstarter to fund a full-fledged operation that will provide completed iMac Aquariums and DIY kits as well. You can still check the kickstarter at the link below, but Jake has already hit his goal of $5,000 and then some. All that’s left now is to buy some exotic sharks and drop James Bond into it and you’re set.

Skate Art by haroshi

Haroshi creates his sculptures through the magical medium of skateboard decks, shaved down and rearranged mosaic-style to form creatures, objects, and beloved video game icons. If I could lend all the virtual boards I wrecked in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3, I would do it for the art.

The Miracle of Signs by Dimitris Polychroniadis

In his series “The Miracle of Fluo Colors”, Dimitris uses text from actual faith-sponsored billboard signs and recasts them as giant, surreal messages with no context, prompting the miniature denizens to ponder whether they’re legit signs from above or perverse cosmic practical jokes. Check out a few more pictures and details over at Dimitris’ behance. On a personal note: the “Hell is Real” quote is a very real billboard I used to pass on the I-71 in Ohio, just outside of Columbus and I could never believe that *it* was real.

Photographs by Martin Klimas  

“For this series, Klimas spent six months and about 1,000 shots to produce the final images from his studio in Düsseldorf, Germany. The resulting images are Klimas’s attempt to answer the question ‘What does music look like?’”

One Thousand Means of Escape by S. Astrid Bin

This installation featuring 1,000 paper airplanes are meant to evoke a flock of birds, caught in mid-flight, but it reminds me of stars flying by at warp speed. I’m still saddened by the painful fact that I will never live long enough to see paper spacecraft technology progress that far though :(
