Using only her hands, toothpicks (not even a magnifying glass!) and patience, artist Anja Markiewicz folds impossibly small origami that can easily rest on the tip of your finger.
Born in Leipzig, Germany, and currently based in Potsdam, Anja uses special, extra-thin paper to fold what she calls ‘nano-origami'. If you interested in owning one of her miniature creations check out her online store!

Embroidery artist Veselka Bulkan (previously) continues to produce carefully embroidered works of root-bound plants found in gardens. The pieces all interact with hoops in various ways, from potted plants and potatoes that dangle from the edge to dandelions that stretch between two hoops. Bulkan has also been taking commissions for a series of ultrasound embroideries, and many of her original pieces are available in her shop.

For the last three years, photographer Christoffer Relander has been revisiting his childhood environments to “capture” them into this collection, an ongoing series entitled Jarred & Displaced. Most environments are from where he grew up, in the countryside in the south of Finland, where his roots still lie. As a container for the environments, Relander uses jar bottles.
All works are intentional double exposures shot ‘in-camera', meaning this project was not created or layered in external [...]

One of Dambo's many interactive projects is Happy City Birds, a ongoing series that lies at the intersection of street art and community development. The Danish artist builds bird houses across urban centers, installing the new homes against buildings, grouped on tall poles, or spaced throughout existing trees.
Since 2006, Dambo and his crew have constructed more than 3,500 birdhouses with recycled [...]
