Dutch physicist-artist Arie van’t Riet takes us on an in depth – very much the understatement – look at the beauty of nature, both inside and out. An expert on radiation physics, Van’t Riet first attempted X-ray paintings when a colleague asked him to shoot a painting. When that worked out fine, that led him to X-raying more subjects, like plants and animals. He’s continued shooting different subjects in X-ray, then digitizing and colouring the black & white images in Photoshop. The final product, he fondly calls, ‘Bioramas’. (via lostateminor)

A trained painter, Cayce Zavaglia creates portraits from wool thread using an embroidery method she developed to mimic the effect of drawing and painting. Her realistic portraits nod to the mechanized precision of photography but also pay homage to handmade crafts with their tactile qualities. Because of her unique embroidery method, Zavaglia’s portraits can be viewed as distinct artworks from either side. The clean portraits on the front sides appear fractured and abstracted from the back. Each piece takes about eight weeks to complete, and Zavaglia says that the backs of the portraits have inspired a forthcoming series of gouache paintings. (via hifructose)

Swedish artist Ulrika Kestere practices photography, wood carving and illustration. She executes her work in each medium with a distinct style and flavor, but her multi-disciplinary approach is informed by fantastical narratives that connect her work. Her photography is marked by unconventional storylines that play on fairytale themes. For her series, “7 Horses,” Kestere imagines the story of a girl who must recover her seven invisible horses that have been blown away by the wind. Take a look at the photo series below (via hifroctose).

Artist Kevin Champeny recently designed this crazy chandelier made of 3,000 hand-cast acrylic gummy bears called the Candelier for home furnishings company Jellio. The light comes in two sizes, the largest of which actually uses 5,000 bears, is 31″ in diameter, and weighs in at about 50 lbs. (via thisiscolossal)
