NYC’s Cans Are Turning Into Giant Vases Filled With Flowers. Is This Art or Crime?

Last month have appeared some mysterious flowers all over Manhattan. The main targets of this guerrilla campaign are sidewalks, trash cans, statues, and public plazas. New York City-based floral designer Lewis Miller is on a mission to create an emotional response in a gloomy metropolis, and he uses flowers to achieve it. He said: “Gifting flowers to New Yorkers is a simple idea that I have been thinking about for years. I hoped for smiles, the ones that happen when you witness a random act of kindness. That was my goal, my vision. Create an emotional response through flowers.”

The series is called Flower Flashes, and each installation has a different vibe. “Our Alice in Wonderland installation was romantic, feminine and whimsical. Our trash can flashes are edgier and ephemeral,” said Miller.

The bouquets also vary in scale. The largest ones consist of thousands of flowers like roses, dahlias, and orchids, and, if produced for a client at Miller’s firm, could cost upwards of $10,000. “We try and use flowers from a previous event when we can. And by doing so, we give the flowers a second life,” said Miller and also that he plans to continue the flower flashes and putting smiles on peoples’ faces.

Photographer “Time Travels” by Photoshopping Herself into Old Celebrity Photos

Have you ever imagined if you could go back in time and take a picture with famous people? If yes, you will probably enjoy a similar series in 2013, called “Time Travel” created by an artist, Flora. She is a young fine art photographer from Hungary. She uses exquisite photo manipulation in order to create surreal images that are thematically focused on identity, relationships, and dreams. However, today we will mainly focus on how she discovers the possibilities of the well known “selfie” phenomenon with famous people. Let’s admit that it would be pretty difficult to explain the concept of a selfie to a person from the 20th century. But this fact makes these series even more interesting!

“After the first official picture of a black hole was released last week, I decided to look into the Theory of relativity and I’ve been wondering how cool it was, if I could travel faster than the speed of light, ergo I could travel back in time. While I’ve been making a “selfie” with Albert Einstein (photoshopping myself into a picture of him) I decided to celebrate this amazing discovery with a series of pictures, where I travel back in time. ” writes Flora in her website.

Check out the gallery below. Also, tell us in the comment section below; If you could go back in time who would you like to take a selfie with?
