Little People in the Big City (16 pics)

Trespassing



The Little People Project by London-based Slinkachu is one of my all-time favorite art installations. After remodeling and painting miniature model train set characters, he places them on the street and takes photographs of them in funny and interesting predicaments.

When they heard the news, everybody was soo nice and kept on begging me to stay. Kinda convinced me to stay..… Continue

Controversial Modern Art - Device to Root Out Evil

No, this picture isn't upside down. "Device to Root Out Evil" was designed by American artist Dennis Oppenheim, and is a sculpture of what looks to be an upside-down church. The steeple, usually piercing the sky in its lunge toward heaven, is now at ground level, pursuing with vigor, the demons of the deep.



"A country church is seen balancing on its steeple, as… Continue

Boys must love Bar Refaeli. After all, she's named after one of their favorite places. And her svelte body shape looks as solid as the wood pieces constructed to hold up pint after foamy pint of their favorite cold beverages.

Highlights according to the Guardian:
