The abstract ceramics of US artist Jason Briggs – porcelain, hair and steel sculptures with unlikely titles like ‘Angel’, ‘Blossom’ and ‘Baby’ grotesquely redolent of everything from sexual organs to cysts. Interpret them however you like, sez he:

…sculpture, fine art, fine craft, ceramic sculpture, figurative, abstract, surrealism, eroticism, non-traditional, biological, fucked-up, pornographic or, worst of all, decorative.

Lovely Christmas presents, in fairness.

A stop motion timelapse from filmmaker Jeff Frost combining 300,000 photographs taken over the last two years: from riots and decomposing roadkill to optical illusions painted by himself inside abandoned buildings. The film – vaguely intended as an exploration of ‘creation and destruction’ – was made without graphics or visual effects.

It’s quite the visual treat and, if you can spare 12 minutes, well worth watching right to the end.
