“Have you ever walked by a particularly strong stench at a street corner and suddenly had the urge to give it a closer smell to really dissect its nuances? Well, us neither. But a few brave pioneers have taken it upon themselves to create their own smellmaps, fascinating guides that showcase a city’s range of olfactory experiences. In this interactive New York Times map of Manhattan (from 2009 but still awesome), Jason Logan provides encyclopedic entries for each neighborhood’s smells cape.”

These dreamlike sculptures are the work of Chinese artist Hu Shaoming, sculptor and graduate of the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts. For his city series Shaoming created an awesome transparent blue mechanical seahorse, submerged in water with a silver cityscape on the top of its head emerging from the surface of the water.
For a series dealing with the concept of time, Shaoming disassembled old objects, such as cameras and telephones, and then rebuilt them with the surreally beautiful addition of zippers which open to reveal the inner mechanisms of each device.
