Villagers Hand-Knit Giant Sweaters to Help Keep Rescued Elephants Warm

The Wildlife SOS Conservation and Care Center in Mathura, India offers sanctuary to elephants who have been abuse and exploited. Due to particularly cold weather, some of the animals have also received a new wardrobe! Unfortunately, because it can take up to 4 weeks to produce a single sweater, only 3 of the 23 elephants currently living at the centre have one of their own (the rest were given blankets).

The knitters plan to continue their work even as the temperature starts to rise in the hope that they’ll be able to outfit every elephant next winter. See more images of the heartwarming project below or click here to get involved!

Artist Spotlight: Carson Davis Brown

“Mass” is a project by artist Carson Davis Brown in which he creates sculptures inside of big-box stores and other places of mass. He constructs the unauthorized installations, photographs them, and then leaves them to be discovered by shoppers and staff. Images of the installations are printed, framed (using un-sold frames), and exhibited inside the stores without permission. See more images from the series below as well as video clips documenting the building of installations using cameras tethered to in-store camera displays!
