A Completely Level Floor Made from 400 Individual Ceramic Tiles

trippy flat floor entrance to casa ceramica tiles 2 A Completely Level Floor Made from 400 Individual Ceramic Tiles

 

The entrance to the Manchester showroom for Casa Ceramica Tiles has been generating buzz online for its trippy pattern. Made from 400 individual porcelain tiles, the floor appears warped and skewed but is actually completely level.

Even when viewed from the opposite direction the floor still appears to undulate. Casa Camerica tells Insider, “the inspiration was to create an entrance themed on illusions and [exceed] expectations of how tiles can be used.”

Below you will find some additional photos as well as timelapse videos of the build.

Every Year Japanese Art Students Get Together and Make Giant Animals Out of Straw

giant straw animals japan wara art festival 2017 10 Every Year Japanese Art Students Get Together and Make Giant Animals Out of Straw

 

Since 2008, students from the Musashino Art University in Tokyo have travelled to Niigata City, Japan to create huge sculptures made from straw (featured previously) for the Wara Art Festival.

The giant straw sculptures are built atop large wooden frames which serve as the base for the woven straw artworks. The festival also features kite flying, a miniature market and other events. It’s a huge hit with kids and parents as people get to interact with the sculptures, taking photos and playing in the open fields.

Below you will find highlights from year’s festival. You can see works from previous years in our feature gallery from 2015. You can learn more about the festival at the official site as well as their Facebook page.

Artist Photoshops Himself Into His Childhood Photos (11 Pics)

 

In a series entitled Childhood, artist Conor Nickerson photshopped his present day self into a series of old childhood photos from the mid 90s onward. On Behance, Nickerson adds:

 

“While looking through some old family photos, I wondered what it would it look like if I tried to photoshop myself today into them. I gathered all the old hats and t-shirts that I could find and did my best to put myself into childhood moments which, aside from these photos, remain only a distant memory. The result was learning a lot about Photoshop, but also an amusing, strange, and surprisingly introspective collection of photos of myself hanging out with myself.”

20 IMAGES

Friday!
I’ve squandered my life
This new caption changes everything
“Forget about the saw Jim we got it”
When the Crossfit gym is closed for the day
Today you become a man
No Reward
Reminds me of Thesaurus, the wordy dinosaur
This guy’s pockets are tiny jeans
Gotcha!
That shirt is perfect
Please do not season the birds
I’m a simple man
When your cat is disappointed with your life choices
This would have been a great boomerang
Guy gets into release party with a receipt
When Mom says you can’t play until you’ve hung the laundry
When Dad’s your hero
Faceswapping parents with their babies will always be acceptable
Until next week

Surreal Video of Postman Delivering Mail to Neighborhood Destroyed by Wildfire Goes Viral

 

Hours after the devastating California wildfires tore through Santa Rosa, professional drone pilot Douglas Thron filmed a postal worker delivering mail to the ravaged neighborhood of Coffey Park.

Thron says while he was at the scene shooting aerial footage for NBC’s Today Show on Tuesday, he spotted the truck driving around the neighborhood. Thron tells Mercury News, “It was a trippy thing — he was actually delivering the mail. I was shocked to see him because most of the roads were blocked-off, but he obviously had access.”

San Francisco USPS District Manager Noemi Luna provided the following statement to clarify why the mail carrier delivered the route:

 

“This is an example of the long standing relationship that has been established between our carriers and their customers based on trust. The carrier in question was honoring a request by a few customers who were being let back in the fire zone to retrieve personal items. A few customers asked the carrier to leave their mail if the mailbox was still standing because they could not get to the annex to retrieve it.”
