Dance with somebody: Roskilde Festival in Denmark

There is one crucial question which every girl has to answer at one point or another: could you do without the daily look in the mirror, a hot shower and a powered hair dryer?

Where Neon City rests its Bones

When visitors think of Las Vegas, naturally everything glitz and glamour will spring to their mind: streets lined with posh hotels, world-famous show attractions, and 24-hour nightlife.

The Little People Project

“Abandoning Little People on the Streets since 2006” is the project's slogan, which is pretty mysterious and intriguing… but when you begin exploring this little blog, The Little People Project, the adorable art and photography that take the miniature figures around the world is captivating and you can soon lose a good couple of hours trawling through the ar[...]

Ariel’s Revenge - Cancun's Underwater Movie Set

So, the story of The Little Mermaid involved, erm, a little mermaid who found herself on land surrounded by humans and being expected to blend right in with her pretty little feet and seashell bra.

The sand art of Andres Amador

A true artist does not need much to create something that is new and awe-inspiring and in the case of Andres Amador all it takes is a rake and a beach. The San Francisco based landscape and movement artist has made it his specialty to draw unique and original designs into beach sand when the tide is low, always at risk of his work being swept away before it'[...]

Doodlin' in Queensland: an interview with Jodie Lyons

In 2010 my friend Jodie sporadically decided to put her stuff in storage and travel to Australia for a few months.  A few months grew quickly into a year and right before the start of 2012 she set foot on American soil for the first time since she left.  I was excited to see her again, but to be quite honest I almost didn't recognize her.  Never mind it was [...]

Artists have long been reclaiming public spaces as open forums to showcase their art but this new rebellion is taking street art to the next level - to the street level. . An underground guerrilla gardening project has been taking over London over the past few mont[...]

New York City’s Hidden Subway Station

Deep in the belly of New York’s subway system, a beautiful untouched station resides that has been forgotten for years with only a limited few knowing of its existence. Stunning decoration with tall tiled arches, brass fixtures and skylights run across the entire curve of the station, almost a miniature imitation of Grand Central Station... But it sounds lik[...]
