The silence of the world, like a quotation, is suddenly endowed with an oppressive eloquence. Small intrusions are the true sparks here, because their disconcerting presence disrupts the majestic calm of the streets and squares. Are you guilty or a victim? The fate that governs these shots in a tangible way is not the result of decisions taken by metaphysical powers, but stems uniquely from the imagination of the two creators of these photos
35-year-old Liu Bolin, from Shandong, China, manages to camouflage himself in any surroundings, no matter how difficult they might be. Liu works on a single photo for up to 10 hours at a time, to make sure he gets it just right, but he achieves the right effect: sometimes passers-by don’t even realize he is there until he moves.
The talented Liu Bolin says his art is a protest against the actions of the Government, who shut down his art studio in 2005 and persecutes artists. It’s about not fitting into modern society. Despite problems with Chinese authorities, Liu’s works are appreciated at an international level.

Happy Food is a new animated short by toy company Yum Yum London. I won’t give too much of the plot away, other than that you may find yourself yelling, “hit it on the side” at your computer screen. Enjoy.
The Swedish/Australian duo Kate Boy does it again! After their catchy single 'Northern Lights' caused quite a stirr on the web, they have now released their second video. 'In Your Eyes' has a beautiful build-up, is equally catchy and the black & white video matches perfectly.
Benedict Morgan had the idea for his Wrapping Paper series some time before actually executing it. When camouflaging an object the shape and outlines must be retained in order for the viewer to recognize it, otherwise it would just simply blend in with the background and disappear.
A1 by Darkside is a music collaboration between Nicolas Jaar and guitarist Dave Harrington. It's the first song from their ´Darkside´ EP. Harrington´s guitar sound together with Nicolas Jaar´s sound create a good laidback vibe. The brown colours in a desert environment make the video almost a warm black and white one. Don´t really see the story in the video? Doesn't matter, it's just nice to watch.

Last summer, before moving to Amsterdam, Tiago Pinto took some time off and in between dinners with friends and days of fun he spent some time doing “not-so-far-from-work-stuff”, like photography or graphics. It was a way to keep his mind busy with different subjects, ideas and techniques. One of the topics he focused on was typography. Fonts. Typefaces. Type Faces. For Tiago every font has a face, since they're different from each other they kind of have their own personality. That's how The Type Faces project was born, starting with the Futura's good looking mid-life man, the Italian Bodini with a fashionable moustache, the sad Courier New and the not so handsome Comic Sans.
Love Hurts is a first aid kit for the broken hearted. Graphic designer Melanie Chernock from New York stuffed everything you need after a break up into one box. Tissues, some pain killers, wodka, dark chocolate, a CD and a candle are some of the things that might let you feel less cold. The only thing that breaks our hearts: the box is not in production (yet). She is currently looking for someone to produce it. Check out more of her interesting work on her website.
The ‘Trashcam Project’ transforms dumpsters into traveling pinhole cameras that roll around the city of Hamburg. The images are breathtaking: slightly vague black-and-white city drama. Would you believe that these beautiful photos were taken from inside the dirtiest objects on the city streets?
