What’s potentially even more fascinating is that the subject of the artwork is Benjamin Kyle, a man from the states who woke up after an accident with no memory whatsoever. He doesn’t know who he is, who he was, how he got there, what happened, or anything.

A gummy bear chandelier that’s good enough to eat

Check out this pretty tasty looking chandelier made by Kevin Champeny. It’s made from 3,000 hand-crafted acrylic bears so unfortunately you can’t drunkenly devour it when you get home from the pub.

Close-up photography of bubbles that look like planets!

Nice bit of micro photography of soap bubbles up close from Jason Tozer. They look like some sort of hippy-ish psychedelic acid-fuelled view of the solar system.
