Valeriya Kutsan is a Russian make-up artist who has taken the craft to a whole new dimension. Rarely do I literally have my jaw drop when perusing images on the internet. This was one of those times. Unbelievably cool and intricate and creative, these works (and their models) will forever change the way I look at the potential of painting a face. Via FastCo Design:
Artist Mark Dorf creates a strange and interesting dichotomy between nature and technology in his series of images entitled //_path. Via DesignBoom:
You don’t have to love Nike to appreciate the enormous range of footwear they make. Designer Nathan VanHook has a pretty sweet looking design for this all weather boot. The inner liner is insulated and can be worn inside a home, while slipping into the boot shell provides a waterproof exterior. Available this October. Via Nike:
Bot and Dolly produced this stunning projection mapping, and it’s hard to believe, but everything you see is taking place in camera, no post-production graphics. Watching it in HD, large, is a must. Via Colossal:
“Box” explores the synthesis of real and digital space through projection-mapping on moving surfaces. The short film documents a live performance, captured entirely in camera. Bot & Dolly produced this work to serve as both an artistic statement and technical demonstration. It is the culmination of multiple technologies, including large scale robotics, projection mapping, and software engineering. We believe this methodology has tremendous potential to radically transform theatrical presentations, and define new genres of expression.

Photographer Davide Luciano and professional food stylist Claudia Ficca are married, and their latest project is entitled Meals Interrupted. Its a fun and clever series, rich with story and humor. Via DesignBoom:
Each visual bears the image of an abandoned tabletop, one that has been disturbed by an unfortunate accident, or humorous mishap — a picnic is suddenly ravaged by a swarm of bees, a devastating fire chars every meal, and a chaotic mess of school lunch is left behind after a cafeteria food fight. Each shot captures the uncanny sense of disappointment that follows an unexpected, hurried ending to a meal.
