Big Appetites is a series of fine art photographs by Seattle-based photographer, writer, artist and filmmaker Christopher Boffoli. The series presents tiny, meticulously detailed figures posed in real food environments, referencing both a cultural fascination with tiny things as well as an American enthusiasm for excess, especially in the realm of food. The photographs have been published in more than 95 countries around the world.
Bryan Berg was introduced to card-stacking by his grandfather at the age of 8. He is a self-taught artist in all of the techniques he uses today. Berg’s freestanding card structures are based on a grid-like arrangement, which Berg tested in a structural engineering lab to support 660 lbs per square foot―using no tape, no glue, no folding, and no tricks.
Sophie de Oliveira Barata is a beautiful and wonderful human being. Barata is the mastermind behind The Alternative Limb Project which provides unique prosthetics that are specially designed to blend perfectly with the wearer’s body OR to be an exclusive piece of art made specifically reflecting their personality and interests. This is a beautiful example of how art truly can touch and change the lives of individuals beyond just striking an emotional chord.
“An alternative-style limb can help to break down social barriers, delight the eye and provide an unusual talking point.”
