Suspended Green Walkway Connects Two Offices Mid-Air
Zalewski Architecture Group in Poland has created an innovative way to provide office employees with a green space at the office. In Gliwice, Poland, several office buildings are joined together by a communal courtyard. The courtyard is stone, and rather bare. The architects at Zalewski came up with a unique way for workers to enjoy the sunshine. A suspended pathway hangs over the courtyard. It’s shape supplies employees with an interesting pathway to enjoy on their lunch hour. The walkway itself is thin in width to allow for more sunlight to reach the courtyard below.

Gigantic Sculpture Cast From The Trunk Of A 140-Year-Old Tree
This sculpture, titled Middle Fork, was unveiled at the MadArt space in Seattle, and is the latest work by artist John Grade. John Grade is an artist living and working in Seattle. He has a preoccupation with exploring issues of irrevocable environmental change. This particular endeavour took roughly a year to complete. It began when Grade and a group of assistants chose a 140-year-old Western Hemlock tree in the North Bend region of Washington State. They climbed the tree and began the painstaking process of creating a plaster mold of the tree trunk, sometimes at heights of 90 feet, which was then carefully taken to the workshop in Seattle where a team of volunteers began to replicate the moldings of the tree using pieces of wood.

This piece will be featured at the MadArt space until April 25th, 2015, at which time it will go on to tour galleries and art fairs in the United States. In two years, the sculpture itself will be brought back the the base of the living tree that is its inspiration. It will be left there to decay back into the environment.

Each drawing is meticulously crafted and completed. The most impressive part? He’s only fifteen years old!
A Cute Cat Candle That Melts To Reveal A Sinister Metallic Skeleton Underneath
This is the Kisa candle. It was designed by Thorunn Arnadottir in 2011 for her graduation show from the Royal College of Arts in London. She was inspired by the way we use candles, particularly “[one] day as I watched the chubby body of a jolly Santa Claus shaped candle slowly melt, deform, and perish into a sad pool of wax I wondered if I could elevate this common place ritual sacrifice into a true theatre of the macabre in wax.” With that in mind, she chose the cat, an animal who has always displayed a double nature. According to her, “Cats have always had a split personality. One minute purring contentedly the next hissing and temperamental. While they are cute and huggable they have a dark side associated with witchcraft and sorcery. Kisa was created to capture this duality. Kisa performs a slowly unfolding transformation from cute kitty to brooding skeleton.”

She teamed up with Dan Koval to launch the Kisa Candle in retail stores. They created a Kickstarter to launch their campaign and were overwhelmed by the response. They hope to add more products to their collection this year.
