Homemade Pacifist Bombs by Petros Efstathiadis


Undermining the very concept of bombs, Greek photographer, Petros Efstathiadis, created his own out of various innocuous items like soap, flowers, lightbulbs, and sponges. He then photographed them for a series intended to reflect on real world issues like Greece’s economic crisis and our general global confusion in a playful, absurdist, and child-like way.

13-ft Flower Bouquet in the Middle of the Ocean


Part of his ongoing project, “In Bloom” (which aims to create giant bouquets of flowers in places where they wouldn’t naturally occur), flower artist Azuma Makoto and his team constructed a 13-foot flower bouquet in the middle of the Hinoba-an Sea in the Philippines.

Made from 10,000 heliconia flowers and 100 banana leaves, the making-of images are almost as beautiful as the final piece. See more images below! You can also check out a short documentary of the project here.
