Kazuki Nakamura and Kenichi Izuhara designed a house that has slides connecting each level.
The smallest aquarium in the world was made by Anatoly Konenko, who lives in the Siberian city of Omsk. A glass cube measuring 30 by 24 by 14 mm, complete with sand, multi-coloured stones and seaweed can contain 10 ml of water and play home to tiny fish. The mini-aquarium is equipped with a water purification filter.

If his most recent tags have been any indication, Bansky isn’t done with the city of Los Angeles just yet. His latest work comes in the form of Kite, a social commentary on the harsh illegal immigration laws in California. The piece depicts a family running hand in hand across a yellow diamond, similar to the illegal immigration caution signs seen along the freeways bordering Mexico. Another piece, This Looks A Bit Like An Elephant, cleverly uses an abandoned oil tanker as wall space, turning what many considered a piece of junk into valuable artwork.
In this scene from the BBC’s Human Planet, three Dorobo men cut and butcher an already dead wildebeest before taking it away from fifteen lions. The men, armed only with bows.
The Spanish design agency Sidecar Publicidad has released a series of wine label designs for each of the seven deadly sins. Envy, Lust, Gluttony and the rest are all here, represented in visually striking forms. That bright, shiny gold bottle inspires envy, and the red, lingerie-laced bottle is as lusty as it gets. We know a thing or two about wine label designs, having featured some pretty popular articles on the design of wine in the past. These label designs by Sidecar are some of the best we’ve seen, a collection where each label tells a story and the bottles come together to communicate a message. They’re inspiring envy, lust and gluttony from us, at least… Sinful work, Sidecar!
Following the discovery of a string of Banksy drawings around Los Angeles over the past couple of weeks, it appears as though the cunning street artist is back at it again. A new Banksy sketch has just been uncovered in Hollywood that depicts a young girl standing in front of a house being boarded up. In a similar vein to the sketch found in Los Angeles last week of a boy holding a machine gun in a bed of flowers, this piece also uses a black and white stencil background with pastel drawing. With the Academy Award ceremony coming up on February 27, (Banksy has been nominated for an Oscar in the Best Documentary category for Exit Through the Gift Shop), who knows what else the artist has up his sleeve. Stay tuned.
