Unbelievably Stunning Pinned Skin Collages by David Adey

Using carefully cut fragments of printed skin from the photographs of celebrities in popular magazines, artist David Adey creates elaborate, pinned collages reminiscent of the most complex entomological displays. In some instances he reconstructs the original photos using component pieces cut into myriad geometric shapes and symbols, each placed perfectly on the canvas with a single pin. Other times he creates giant whirling textures as with his piece Swarm, a process that can take up to 200-300 hours. The patience required for all of this simply boggles the mind. Adley currently has a solo show at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Snow Monkeys at the Jigokudani Monkey Park

Jigokudani Monkey Park is in Nagano Prefecture, Japan. The name Jigokudani, meaning “Hell’s Valley”, is due to the steam and boiling water that bubbles out of small crevices in the frozen ground, surrounded by steep cliffs and formidably cold and hostile forests.

It is famous for its large population of wild Japanese Macaques, more commonly referred to as Snow Monkeys, that go to the valley during the winter, foraging elsewhere in the national park during the warmer months. Starting in 1963, the monkeys descend from the steep cliffs and forest to sit in the warm waters of hot springs, and return to the security of the forests in the evenings.

One Minute Sculptures by Erwin Wurm

Erwin Wurm is an Australian artist. Since the late 1980s he has developed an ongoing series of “One Minute Sculptures,” in which he poses himself or his models in unexpected relationships with everyday objects close at hand, prompting the viewer to question the very definition of sculpture. He seeks to use the “shortest path” in creating a sculpture — a clear and fast, sometimes humorous, form of expression. As the sculptures are fleeting and meant to be spontaneous and temporary, the images are only captured in photos or on film.

Freshly Sealed Love by Hal

Tokyo-based artist, Hal has put together a new bizarre photo series involving couples and shrink-wrap. Titled “Flesh Love” volunteer couples are covered in a plastic sheet and vacuum-sealed so tightly together that they appear to be one “love-being.” The result is better than those leftovers you have balled up in Saran Wrap, but we’re not sure we would want to be pressed up against anyone in a sweaty plastic sheet.
