  • Hi,

    I just found your site and was so excited and inspired by the wonderful creations people made. I loved every one of the little boats. You’ve really had a great idea with this project; it really touched my heart. My husband and I are nature artists and just love it when people work with nature and just create like kids again. So much imagination! You had such a great response from people all over the world! I just had so much fun looking at every single boat. My favorite was the one with the bee following it…..that would make a wonderful children’s book story.

    My husband and I make furniture and houses from nature and people and animals, too. I hope you’ll visit my site sometimes. Would love to know what you think. Thank you so much for sharing such a wonderful project! I love it!!
    Debbie and Mike Schramer

    • glad you enjoyed it debbie – yes i would love to see the bee one become a little story! the houses you build are amazing!

  • Dom

    oui, nous sommes capables de nous mobiliser collectivement pour créer de la beauté dans ce monde. J’en suis profondément certaine et réjouie quand je le vérifie par des billets de cette sorte. Je ne connaissais pas l’existence de ce projet et j’aurai plaisir d’en parler à posteriori… des photos sont passées sur tumblr…
    belle idée.
    Merci

“The Omega Project” by Rone

Rone continues his exploration of doomed and abandoned spaces with his latest immersive exhibition. “The Omega Project” sees the Melbourne-based artist setting up shop in a condemned suburban cottage in his hometown. Granted access and free rein before it’s torn down, Rone has filled the early 1900s weatherboard house with his signature ‘Jane Doe’ portraits. He also teamed up with interior stylist, Carly Spooner, to recreate the archetypal interiors, furthering the jarring mix of beauty and destruction particular to the experience of street art. As Rone explains:

“The concept of creating something beautiful within the context of decay and decline is central to the experience of any street artist. As is the idea that whatever you create might be gone the next day. For the artist, street art is all about embracing that transience and impermanence. And for the audience, it’s about seeing it (and taking photos of it) while you can”

Click here to check out the incredible 3D tour created by Phoria as well as more images and video below. While the exhibition starts July 22 and runs until the end of the month, the exact location will only be disclosed via email tomorrow morning to those who RSVP!
