Beautifully sophisticated floral patterns

Painstakingly intricate floral pattern drawn with black and blue gel ink pens onto rough watercolour paper. Estonian artist Sandra calls herself ”a slow drawer” because she spent around 40 hours drawing this 18 x 27 cm piece of art and around 50 hours tracing it on Adobe Illustrator after she scanned it.

In a short time lapse video she recorded her delicate drawing process.

Photography: Alex MacLean captures the patterns of civilisation from planes

Alex has been leaning out of plane windows to capture his shots ever since being awarded his pilot’s license in the 1970s, and he hopes that his photographs will encourage viewers to consider the impact of pollution and resource extraction on the environment. He explains: “Through sort of abstract and engaging patterns, those things will draw people into it to hopefully think about these issues. It really is about combining art and information. Some of it is sort of subliminal – you can’t quite put your finger on it but it sort of draws you in and engages you.”

Feast Your Eyes On These Infinitely Looping Flipbooks

Every kid loves a flipbook. It’s magic, at first sight, the way flipbooks bring sketches to life one frame at a time. But, horribly, flipbooks might also represent one of the first of many disappointments in a kid’s life: Pages run out, the animation stops dead.

Now, artist Juan Fontanive has discovered the equivalent of flipbook immortality, or maybe the fountain of flipbook youth. He crafts custom stainless steel boxes fitted with motors and intricate gears, which drive his screenprinted animations of birds and butterflies in endless, Rolodex-style loops. The results feel like classically illustrated nature books brought to life.

8 hours of non-stop plane departures stitched into a single photograph

Nothing beats watching a plane take off (or land). It’s a mesmerizing experience if you’re an aviation enthusiast and even if you aren’t, you will still appreciate the spectacle of the massive metal flying machines. Mike Kelly is one of those enthusiasts and he also happens to be an architectural photographer. Taking his camera out to the south complex at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), he spent nearly eight hours trying to capture the goings of airliners. Then, he spent an additional eight hours in Photoshop stitching each shot together to create a jaw-dropping collage. The dual runways at LAX made for the perfect size and depth of each airplane.

Chloe Early’s dreamlike paintings merge weightlessness with despair

In the 16th century, Saint Teresa of Ávila spoke of being visited by an angel, of “the sweetness of this excessive pain” as he pierced her heart with a golden shaft. Theresa’s words, and her canonization some 40 years after her death, led the prominent 17th-century artist and architect Gian Lorenzo Bernini to sculpt her as a figure bridging the seemingly disparate states of religious and almost sexual euphoria. The Ecstasy of Saint Teresa remains one of the most important and well-studied Baroque sculptures, and it’s also the inspiration for a major London show from Irish artist Chloe Early.

Suspended is an all-new collection from Early that captures a single figure in a state of weightlessness. “I wanted to capture the figures at the point where it was uncertain if they are involved in the glory of a rise or the danger of a fall and ‘suspend’ them in that moment,” Early says, “with every ecstatic moment comes the knowledge that that moment will pass.”

World’s longest desk? Massive, undulating desk accommodates 145 office workers

New York-based Barbarian Group wanted a collaborative work space—an office where all employees would be able to sit at a desk, but where they could still escape to creative work areas.

Clive Wilkinson was the architect who made their vision a reality, according to Business Insider.

The desk, made out of 4,400 sf of plywood and one continuous sheet of resin, is so big that all 145 employees can share it.

Barbarian also made this video to showcase their new space
