One of the most beautiful skate videos I've ever seen.
Artist Jennifer Maestre created these remarkable sculptures made completely from pencils. Each was inspired by the shape and look of Sea Urchins. The sections of pencils represent the different textural surfaces. More words from the artist about her work:
"To make the pencil sculptures, I take hundreds of pencils, cut them into 1-inch sections, drill a hole in each section (to turn them into beads), sharpen them all and sew them together. The beading technique I rely on most is peyote stitch."
This is one of the most beautiful things I've seen! Wherever art meets architecture there’s something interesting bound to happen. In this case, a structure much like a cathedral was created for the 2012 Light Festival in Ghent, Belgium. The structure is about 90 feet tall and composed of 55,000 LEDs. Stunning.
