    Bill Owens is a legend! He was there the day the Rolling Stones hired the Hells Angels as security guards for their concert in ’69, but I think most of his photos were lost. Apparently he got a photo of the Hell’s Angel who murdered a concert goer.

  • Can’t believe I’ve never seen that first one before! Bill Owens cracks me up.

  • Steven Schofding

    The first one should be titled: assketball …

Intricately Crocheted Coral Reefs

Coral2

Toxic Seas is a passion project started in 2005 by academics and artistic partners Margaret and Christine Wertheim. The series of handmade coral reefs are meant to raise awareness about environmental issues (such as the fragile state of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef) by creating a greater appreciation for the complex design of natural formations (demonstrated through the algorithmic art of crochet). See more images below or on display at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York from September 30th until February 5th.
