French designer Sylvain Viau uses digital editing to create these flying Star Wars like classic cars.

Because of their classic space-age Viau usually worked only with 80s Citroën vehicles because of their classic space-age design, but now he has added  Peugeot, Toyota, and Renault to the mix. You can see many more here.

Cabin In The Forest

Tomek Michalski has created his own ideal meditative Cabin in the Forest.

My first architectural concept. The vision of the place to clear one’s head targeted at the individuals who need rest, seclusion from other people, the world and daily life. A cold, misty forest in the context of a warm space of seclusion is supposed to help and shape character, as well as invoke emotions and willingness to ponder. Both the building itself and the interiors will be designed to affect the flora and fauna as little as possible.

Artist Alejandro Duran follows in a long tradition of land art including such luminaries as Goldsworthy and Smithson in his series entitled “Washed Up” a site specific collection of outdoor installations.

Speaking about the project Alejandro says, “Conflating the hand of man and nature, at times I distribute the objects the way the waves would; at other times, the plastic takes on the shape of algae, roots, rivers, or fruit, reflecting the infiltration of plastics into the natural environment.”

In his “Yellow River” series, which we have featured here on Blend Blog Chinese photographer Zhang Kechun has shown a keen eye for the monumental changes taking place in his home country. In this new series entitled “Between the Mountains and Water” Kechun continues this tradition. The title of this post “No Shadows” comes from the fact that nearly all of these images are taken when the skies are full of toxic smoke and dust, a by product of heavy industry and manufacturing as well as low quality coal-fired energy plants This is an ancient land under going enormous change, all under a sky without shadows.

“Children are paid less than adults, with many working up to twelve hours a day. Full-time work frequently prevents children from attending school. Long hours, low or no wages, poor food, isolation and hazards in the working environment can severely affect children’s physical and mental health.”
