A little crazy
“Grown in glasshouses, pineberries start off green, gradually turning paler as they ripen. When the fruit is sweet and juicy enough to eat, the flesh is almost totally white but studded with red seeds - the reverse of the usual variety. Discovered wild in South America and rescued from extinction by Dutch farmers…they are smaller than most commercially grown strawberries, measuring between 15 and 23mm across - slightly less than an inch. The pineberry is said to combine the shape and texture of a strawberry with a flavour and smell closer to that of a pineapple.”

With the recent mural installation by Hense, an Atlanta-based artist, a once historic church now stands tall – decked out in bold, vibrant colors and painted textures. Hense’s process was astonishingly similar to that of your everyday graffiti artist, slowly and meticulously layering the exterior of a building with spray paint, rollers and brushes. The only difference? It was entirely legal.

Related to the jellyfish and corals, Siphonophore is a continuous chain of specialized polyps - individual animals that grow from one another in an organized colony. Some in the colony are devoted to feeding, armed with stinging cells to snag fish or invertebrates. Others are devoted to locomotion, propelling the whole group with a continuous pumping motion while some exist only to reproduce. #Siphonophore
Related to the jellyfish and corals, the beautiful and alien Siphonophore is actually a continuous chain of specialized polyps - individual animals that grow from one another in an organized colony. Some in the colony are devoted to feeding, armed with stinging cells to snag fish or invertebrates. Others are devoted to locomotion, propelling the whole group with a continuous pumping motion. Still others, of course, exist only to reproduce.
Mexican artist Gabriel Dawe makes all kinds of wondrous things with basic textiles. His ongoing series, Plexus, is a collection of unique, complex structures that form intricate patterns of color with sewing thread. The artist says he builds the site-specific installations to "explore the connection between fashion and architecture, and how they relate to the human need for shelter in all its shapes and forms."
Jenny Sabin's My Thread Pavilion – Nike Flyknit Collective "The Pavilion was constructed using two different types of thread, one that is solar active and the other reflective photo luminescent. Every five minutes the lighting in the Pavilion changes ... As the lighting changes, the Pavilion undergoes a transformation from stark white into a glowing green, to a beautiful intense blue and ending with an amazing red/orange."
"American artist Tauba Auerbach presents the 8 x 8 x 8-inch hard-back cubes illustrating the RGB color scheme in a page-by-page medium. A digital offset print on paper with airbrushed cloth cover and book edges create a colorful reference volume of all the colors in existence. The special binding was co-designed by the artist herself in collaboration with Daniel E. Kelm, and were printed at Wide Awake Garage, an independent bookbinder, with help from Leah Hughes."
