An aquatic sculpture by artist Jason deCaires Taylor semi submerged in a paradisal coral lagoon in the Maldives (yes, another one).

Guests wade across 150m of shallow water from the nearby resort island of Sirru Fen Fushi to the 6m tall stainless steel cube whose figurative human, plant and coral shapes can be explored above and below the water.

And then everyone goes back to the resort and has a good long think about what just happened.

A 9 meter tall Dalmation balances a real taxi (a donated Toyota Prius sans engine but with working lights and windscreen wipers) on its nose in a new public art sculpture by Donald Lipski in New York, designed to welcome visitors to the Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital.

In fairness.

Behold the extremely pleasing and ingenious 100-sheet Omoshiro (‘fun’) Block – elegant Japanese stationery by Triad where the cumulative peeling off of notes ‘excavates’ an intricate laser-cut 3D paper sculpture.

Right now the blocks are expensive (¥4000 to ¥10,000 or around €30 to €75 each) and available only at locations in Osaka and Kyoto. With luck (and sustained pressure from stationery geeks the world over) this may change

Wreck (2016) by Philadephia-based sculptor Jordan Griska, who sez of it:

Wreck is based on a computer-generated model of a luxury sedan, in a video game, which was manipulated to look like it was involved in a crash that resulted in a fatality. I crafted 12,000 individual pieces of mirror-finish stainless steel, over the course of almost two years, in order to transform that model into a full-sized three-dimensional monument. The perfect geometry and flawless materiality of the piece reflect the inspiration of idealized digital design, in stark contrast with the grimness of the reality it represents. Beauty, technology and engineering collide with death and reality.
