That’s the Patchwork. The textile technique of “Patchwork“, it is just what the artist Amanda Browder proposes to the communities where she works to build specific architectural interventions for each site. The “Patchwork” is a process through which pieces such as quilts, covers or clothes are made, using remnants of totally different fabrics that can have striking prints and, usually, are brightly colored.

    An old tree as a library

It took inspiration from the nonprofit organization, Little Free Library, and Sharalee thought they could create a unique space in the trunk of the tree. She and her family in Idaho (USA), excited, began by sculpting it from the inside, to then put a shelf and finish decorating it with a small roof and a glass-like door that gives a magical, fairy tale and that allows passers-by take a free book home or…

    Lukas Furlan captures the beauty of Mother Nature

The self-taught photographer’s impressive portfolio of landscape photography showcases his incredible talent, as well as his keen eye for capturing the captivating colors and patterns of otherworldly locations.

    Hyperrealistic paintings of Artic ice against climate change

    The New Yorker artist Zaria Forman uses her immense creative talent to document the devastating effects of climate change using Hyperrealistic paintings. For many years she has produced large format landscape drawings using soft pastel shades. Made with hyperrealistic details, the images are an incredible and moving representation of the majesty of glaciers that, despite their impressive size, are rapidly deteriorating due to global warming. Forman‘s earlier work showed instantly recognizable shapes such as glaciers and icebergs. But now his pictorial approach has changed, essentially reducing the landscape. Forman has spent the last two years traveling with scientific missions from NASA to track the movement of ice. The result is…
