Bird Boxes by John Dilnot "John Dilnot is a man after my own heart. Using clipped illustrations of birds and months he arranges them to create beautiful dioramas within wooden boxes. Dilnot frequently lines the interiors with antique maps and arranges the birds in small flocks, setting them on perpetual cartographic journeys."
Chair of Thought, made of books.
HOW COOL IS THIS!!!!! At first glance, these appear to be conventional stained-glass windows with a modern design, but they contain slices of agate. In 2009, a chuch in Zurich has been enriched with twelve windows by Sigmar Polke. The church has seven windows where the glass has been impregnated with thin slices of agate.
