This beautiful depiction from the Oscar-winning movie, The Godfather, is made up of thousands of letters and words. In fact, every word from the script! It was created entirely by hand and it took artist, Rick Almanzan, over 300 hours to complete. Zoom in and take a closer look!
WittyCookie would like to share with you this Junk Mail Portrait of Elizaveth Taylor at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum in Hollywood. Rather than throwing away all the annoying junk mail, artist Sandhi Schimmel uses it to create colorful mosaics in a process she calls “uncycling”. This stunning portraint features Oscar-winning Hollywood legend, Elizabeth Taylor.

Celebrate Aboriginal Awareness Week (May22-25) with a visit to BEAT NATION.
by Janine C. Grant
The exhibition of Beat Nation begins even before you enter the Vancouver Art Gallery. Carved into the cement by the Hornby Street entrance, the stylized logo ‘Indians’ of the Cleveland Major League Baseball team physically imprints the sidewalk with new meaning. Interweaving the history of Vancouver with contemporary re-appropriation, Nicholas Galanin’s piece sets the tone for the work found inside. In the past, the gallery building held the Land Title office of still un-ceded Coast Salish territory. The enlightening play between space, medium and meaning throughout the gallery presents re-interpretations of tradition and the lived experience of Aboriginal people today.

And if you’re wondering … yes, it’s a real kaleidoscope. No editing tricks — everything you see here happened in the camera. (Watch the jawdropping making-of video.) Credits below.
