What do animals get up to when we’re not looking?

Thomas-Subtil-photography-animals-surreal

French photographer Thomas Subtil in his series “hakuna matata” – a Swahili phrase which means “no worries” – takes animals native to Africa and anthropomorphizes them, revealing us the secret lives of wild animals. The unusual snaps were made from photographs Subtil took whilst visiting Kenya. He later edited them to make them a little more unusual and surreal. We’ve never seen animals do this before… perhaps they only do it when nobody is around?

Old School Collages by Lynn Skordal

old-school-collages-Lynn-Skordal-1Norwegian Brain Farmers

“Most of my pieces involve old-style scissors-and-paper collage, a humble but immensely satisfying medium. I like the process of combining seemingly unrelated images (old photos, magazine clippings, coloured bits of paper, images found in old books or on the internet) into a different reality that might startle, amuse or provoke.
I live and work in the Pacific Northwest, on an island in the middle of a lake, surrounded by a big city.”

The Money Shredding Alarm Clock

Money Shredding Alarm Clock

Have a hard time waking up in the morning? Try this alarm clock, which begins shredding a dollar bill (or your choice of  banknote) from the time the alarm goes off.
Be careful, though – Mashable reminds us that willfully destroying American currency is a federal offense.
The clock is probably a design concept and it’s been doing the rounds in various tech blogs this past week with no mention of who made it.
