    Great Flickr stream! What a fun looking family! You can really see her getting better shots as you view her more recent work.

  • Nice use of toy accordions. Of course, anything with toy accordions is pretty effin cool.

    • I take my Pur d filter. I review a exact inequality in taste between hebdomadal d and water thats been through my faucet mounted filter. Don’t identify with respect to kidney stones notwithstanding that!

Artist Dominic Wilcox Creates Art Exhibition Specifically For Dogs


London-based artist and designer Dominic Wilcox (if you don’t know who he is you have to watch this) has come up with the ultimate contemporary art exhibition for dogs as part of an initiative to encourage people to play more with their pets.

Working in consultation with veterinary experts, installations include an open car window simulator and a 10 ft ball pit made to look like a dog bowl filled with dog food. Paintings by artists Claire Mallison, Joanne Hummel-Newell, Robert Nicol and Michelle Thompson hang low to the ground and specifically draw on colours within dogs’ visual spectrum.

Such a great idea! Check out more images and video of the exhibit below, including some of Wilcox’s preliminary sketches!
