A few days ago, we put up a few shots of some intriguing street art made of yarn and stencil. We found out that it took six hours to create but, other than that, there wasn't much more information about it. What did it mean? How exactly was it made?
Though Paige Bradley has a few "trademark" sculptures, the Internet came and fell in love with one particular one that's causing people from all over the world to see her art for the very first time.

More and more, we're starting to see really high-quality videos shot entirely on that little gadget we all hold near and dear to our hearts...our smartphones. (Really, how great was… Continue
Here at theMET, we're always looking for creative projects that catch our eye. More than anything, we love posting about work that pushes boundaries, showing our audience something that has been changed, flipped or spinned into something magically different.

Remember Sarah and David? They're the creative couple who shared their sweet and funny love story with their wedding guests.

When I first laid eyes on her beautiful, storytelling pieces, I knew I had to get in touch with her. (See first post here.) Not only did I want to find… Continue
Chances are you've already seen artist Isaac Cordal's sad street sculptures while browsing the web. Made of cement, then reproduced with silicone molds, these tiny sculptures are usually hidden on the street - alone and isolated from the world.

Downtown From Behind is one of those photo projects you instantly fall in love with. Faceless New Yorkers ride their bikes through the streets of lower Manhattan. Doesn't seem glamorous but, strangely, it is. The photographs are taken by Bridget Fleming who moved to the Lower East Side from Australia in 2008. She hopes to capture "the heartbeat of New York" through the city's most… Continue
Right around Christmas, I received a surprising message from a member on My Modern Met. It said this, "Seeing that this site has easily turned into my favorite place on the internet, I'd like to donate a copy of the Creative Suite 5 Web Premium for the holidays." I was flabbergasted! With a retail value of $1,799, I thought, how could this be?…

(Note: Reposting with interview added.) When we first laid eyes on Yum Yum's hilarious vinyl toys, we couldn't stop laughing. With cool characters that range from a kick-ass, karate-wielding granny to an action hero with a fondness for chickens, they all make you want to stop and come up with your own crazy story behind them.
