Chris Cobb, an artist based in San Francisco, has created an amazing installation in bookshop called Adobe Books- he catalogued every single one of the 20,000 books by color. The project is titled There is Nothing Wrong in This Whole Wide World. They were arranged by hand over a 10 hour period, and he enlisted the help of 16 volunteers. Such beautiful results, they transformed the bookshop overnight.
Honestly mind bending.

Crows Nest: The crows that live in Tokyo use clothes hangers to make nests. In such a large city, there are few trees, so the natural materials that crows need to make their nests are scarce. As a result, the crows occasionally take hangers from the people who live in apartments nearby, and carefully assemble them into nests. The completed nests almost look like works of art based on the theme of recycling.

Hidden Railing Street Art That Can Only Be Seen From Certain Angle by Zebrating
German street art duo Zebrating has been raising eyebrows with their unconventional and innovative street art designs. The designs are only fully visible from certain angles, effectively hiding them in plain sight.
Zebrating achieve this unique effect by designing their art such that it would be painted on the sides of railing and fence supports. When seen from the front, they simply look like railings, but if viewed from the side while walking by, the flat sections form the impression of a single, beautifully painted work of two-dimensional art. Their work requires a thorough understanding of perspective,which they clearly have. Judging by their Facebook page, they’ve run into trouble with the police a few times, but they’ve also got a solid and supportive fan base.
Drawing a huge salary out of the taxes of the poor and middle class in exchange for doing nothing is not capitalism. It’s feudalism, without even the nobless oblige — “nobility obligates” — ethos of the more enlightened feudal societies. It’s a corporate welfare handout that only the rich seem to be able to access. The 21st-century American version of capitalism bears about as much resemblance to free-market enterprise as Pat Robertson’s frothings at the mouth bear to the original teachings of Christ.

So that the powerful may not opress the powerless, to provide justice for the orphan and the widow… let the victim of injustice see the law which applies to him, let his heart be put at ease.
