Amazing papercuts which will blow your mind

Amazing papercuts which will blow your mind:

The negative and absent 2 dimensional space left by the cut, points out the contrast to the 3 dimensional reality it creates, even though the figures still stick to their origin without the possibility of escaping".

World’s Most Marvelous Streets Shaded By Flowers And Trees

World’s Most Marvelous Streets Shaded By Flowers And Trees

The beauty of nature transforms everyday streets into picturesque portraits fit for a postcard. While humans can construct lovely paved roads, and cute brick houses, our mastery of beauty can’t compete with the wondrous creations of nature.
Streets shaded by trees and flowers are gorgeous, but they are also ripe with other benefits as well. Tree-lined streets work as a great defense against urban pollution and heat-related problems, and they also increase evapotranspiration. Not to mention, they also encourage local residents to get fit by walking and cycling.
Check out the world’s most marvelous streets shaded by trees and flowers here!

  •  Tunnel Of Love, Romania, Caras-severin

Once an abandoned train rail, this location has since turned into The Tunnel Of Love, one of the most romantic destinations on Earth. It is believed by many that if two lovers walk through the tunnel hand-in-hand, all of their wishes will come true.
The trees were formed long ago, back when the train still ran through these parts. Three times each day the train would roll on through, eventually shaping the trees as they are now.

Breakdancers Attach Fireworks To Their Shoes For Explosive Dance Performance

Breakdancers Attach Fireworks To Their Shoes For Explosive Dance Performance

Who doesn't love a good firework show?
But using explosives, no matter how awesome they look, is always a little risky. That’s why for most celebrations and fireworks displays, the rockets themselves are kept away at a safe distance from the onlooking crowd.
Not so with LIL AMOK and BBoy Snoop, two German breakdancers who wanted to bring in the New Year with an altogether different bang.
Rather than politely standing in a crowd watching fireworks exploded hundreds of feet in the sky overhead - they decided to strap them onto their shoes whilst performing their favourite breakdancing routines.
It’s just as epic and dazzling as you’d imagine it to be, hold on for the head spin.

Architectural Renderings of Life Drawn with Pencil and Pen by Rafael Araujo

Architectural Renderings of Life Drawn with Pencil and Pen by Rafael Araujo

Double Conic Spiral, process
Double Conic Spiral. Ink, acrylic/canvas.
Calculation (Sequence) #2. Acrylic, china ink/canvas.
In the midst of our daily binge of emailing, Tweeting, Facebooking, app downloading and photoshopping it’s almost hard to imagine how anything was done without the help of a computer. For Venezuelan artist Rafael Araujo , it’s a time he relishes. At a technology-free drafting table he deftly renders the motion and subtle mathematical brilliance of nature with a pencil, ruler and protractor. Araujo creates complex fields of three dimensional space where butterflies take flight and the logarithmic spirals of shells swirl into existence. He calls the series of work Calculation , and many of his drawings seem to channel the look and feel of illustrations found in Da Vinci’s sketchbooks. In an age when 3D programs can render a digital version of something like this in just minutes, it makes you appreciate Araujo’s remarkable skill. You can see much more here . (viaArchitectureAtlas )
