Land artist Michael Grab creates astonishing towers and orbs of balanced rocks using little more than patience and an astonishing sense of balance. Grab says the art of stone balancing has been practiced by various cultures around the world for centuries and that he personally finds the process of balancing to be therapeutic and meditative.

Underwater sculptures. So sad and beautiful. Art like this helps us to remember our past so that hopefully things like this will never happen again.

Tim Noble and Sue Webster take ordinary things including rubbish, to make assemblages and then point light to create projected shadows which show a great likeness to something identifiable including self-portraits.

Sydney-based artist Catherine Nelson refers to herself as a painter with a camera in that she doesn’t see the world as a photographer does but instead uses photos as a medium with which she creates these fantastic miniature worlds.Each work is comprised of hundreds of photographs which she digitally stitches together,drawing from an extensive background in visual special effects having worked on such films as Moulin Rouge,Harry Potter & 300. Each mini world is 1m x 1m!

UK-based illustrator Carne Griffiths has created a set of 4 striking portraits with uncommon mediums such as tea brandy, vodka, whiskey, graphite and calligraphy ink. His drawings most frequently explore human and floral forms, as says he’s “fascinated by the flow of line and the ‘invisible lines’ that connect us to the natural world.” This one is my favourite!

In 2011 kinetic artists Mark Rosen and Wendy Marvel created a series of wonderful mechanical flipbooks based on the work of Eadweard Muybridge, the guy responsible for pioneering photographic studies of motion. Ascension and Leapfrog are my favourite. Videos of the mechanic flipbooks can be seen at: www.mechanicalfli...

CLOUD is a large scale interactive installation by artist Caitlind r.c. Brown that appeared September 15th as part of Nuit Blanche Calgary in Alberta, Canada. The piece is made from 1,000 working lightbulbs on pullchains and an additional 5,000 made from donated burnt out lights donated by the public. Visitors to the installation could pull the chains causing the cloud to sort of shimmer and flicker.
