WIGGIN' OUT: FUZZY FRUIT

We're Wiggin' Out literally this week with Sarah Illenberger's Haarappel. It's from her Strange Fruits series, which among other things, sees bananas as boots, cauliflowers as brains and chillies as flames.

ADVANCED STYLE

The ladies of Advanced Style continue to shine, this time stepping out as models for Karen Walker's eclectic new range of sunglasses, captured by Ari Seth Cohen in charming photographs. We spotted them on It's Nice That, we're feeling inspired and we'd kill for new shades.

SUNKEN TREASURE

Mark Wallinger is the latest artist to produce work for Art On The Underground, on ongoing project taking art onto the Tube in London. Labyrinth will see 270 unique works installed in each of London Underground's stations, a clever take on the maze-like tunnels that lay beneath this buzzing city.

THIS IS: ABANDONED


We'd give a lot to be taking a trip through this Tunnel of Love. It's just one of our favourites from this round up of beautiful abandoned places across the globe.

OSKAR FISCHINGER

Amsterdam's Eye has been warmly welcomed into the fold with its striking design, cafe/bar with stellar views across the river, shop, four cinemas showing the latest flicks and exhibition areas. We were wowed by the current exhibition charting the genius of German-American filmmaker Oscar Fischinger. His animations use pattern and colour coupled with music creating engaging clips that had our eyes dancing and toes tapping.

THIS IS: UNNERVING

Korean artist Do-Ho Suh is no stranger to us; we featured his ethereal stairs in our Going Up post. At a staggering 7.4 metres, we're pretty sure we don't want to be underfoot of this giant, otherwise known as Karma.

ON THE DARK SIDE

We're inspired by a few artists taking to using the eerie beauty of actual bones in their work or being inspired by them to work with paper and ceramics. We're oddly charmed by Bonasera's Wunderkammer pieces (above).

Francois Robert uses human bones in his provocative series Stop The Violence designed to make us think about the horrors of war. We think he says it best: "I intend the images to plant the notion of restraint and charity in an effort to promote peace and tolerance."

James Gordon turns to paper to create mournful images using skulls, like Stone The Bloody Crows above.
