Need I say anything else? Italian artist Massimo Bartolini built this lovely outdoor library  for the Belgian art festival TRACK: A Contemporary City Conversation in Ghent. Visitors can check it out until September 16th.

I found this lovely tumblr about a year ago and felt in love with it. The idea is to show how cyclists (from behind, of course!) are making urban spaces better (and cleaner, and prettier, and etc, etc). So far, over 200 NYC streets has been part of  the project. The models are usually people between 20 and 50 years-old.

Brooklyn Bridge Park will host this super-cool pop-up photography gallery from June 22 to July 1st (new yorkers and visitors – better hurry to check on it!) Photoville will have 30 shipping containers turned into a village of photography galleries, showing some of New York’s best and brightest photographers and, as usual, the best part is… free admission!

Grass Sculpture

Mathilde Roussel made this fantastic collection called Life of Grass: sculptures made of grass that show the effects of transformation of the material as a metaphor of the transformation of the body over the time. In her words: “Through these anthropomorphic and organic sculptures made of soil and wheat grass seeds, I strive to show that food, it’s origin, it’s transport, has an impact on us beyond it’s taste. The power inside it affects every organ of our body. Observing nature and being aware of what and how we eat makes us more sensitive to food cycles in the world – of abundance, of famine – and allows us to be physically, intellectually and spiritually connected to a global reality.”
