Some artists paint pictures or sculpt sculptures, but not Lawrence Malstaf. He prefers to shrink-wrap living humans for an exhibition he has aptly titled ‘Shrink!’
‘Shrink!’ is made up entirely of volunteers who are shrink-wrapped inside a bag. Lawrence Malstaf’s work is meant to make both volunteers and onlookers consider their own survival and how they respond under threat.

The Julius Bramanto ‘XL Lab’ photo series shows exactly how experimental fashion can be. Interestingly enough, it also illustrates that when it comes to personal style, we’re often only clones of a few style icons.
Shot for their 2010-2011 campaign, the Julius Bramanto ‘XL Lab’ photo series was pulled together by a great team. The shoot features work from stylist Thornandes James, makeup artist Carry and photo assistants Ken Arini, Shuri and Retno Prasasti.15. Handyman Mosaics
Armenian artist Saimir Strati has to be all screwed out after spending two weeks creating the world’s largest screw mosaic. All bad jokes aside, Saimir Strati did spend two weeks and over 300,000 screws creating his unique work, which he calls ‘Currency of the Soul.’
‘Currency of the Soul’ features the Greek poet Homer on the face of the dollar bill as opposed to Washington’s. You don’t have to dig too deep into the piece’s meaning to know that Saimir Strati’s work truly is one of a kind.14. Exclusive Accordion Timepieces
The Opera Tourbillon timepiece featured in the gallery is one out of 12 made. The super-exclusive, ultra-luxurious Opera Tourbillon watch is not for the faint of heart or wallet, with 18K rose or gray gold and 319 parts for a whopping $1.2 million.

Check out the featured gallery to indulge your horological fantasies with the Opera Tourbillon watch.13. Dollipop Campaigns
This Mini Chupa Chups campaign is definitely going to attract some attention. The concept behind these print ads is simple, yet totally effective. Mini Chupa Chups are delicious, fun and tiny.

Ten flight attendants of the Mexicana Airlines have launched a racy aviation-themed calender in attempt to save Mexico’s nearly-bankrupt national airline.

This Stefan Milev Zink Magazine pictorial re-imagines Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ with an eerie twist.
With pensive, forlorn clowns, Milev’s images deliver a very depressing and creepy feel. The irony created by clowns void of smiles also adds a very dramatic edge to the editorial.4. Roadkill Calendars
If cute puppies, inspirational scenes or provocative pin-ups are a bit mundane for your taste, you might like Kevin Beresford’s 2011 Son of Roadkill Calendar. The wacky calendar features images of dead animals on the road or roadside.
Beresford thought the dead dogs, squashed squirrels, flattened fowl and hammered hedgehogs that he saw in his travels as a courier might have a higher purpose as images in a unique calendar. The Son of Roadkill Calendar is the latest of Beresford’s morbid datekeepers. It’s not for everyone though: Some shops refuse to stock the item.3. Snow-White Riders

Boasting 321 rooms on a 1 km. beachfront, the resort also offers infinity pools, an 18-hole championship golf course and a landscape of diverse surroundings with spectacular sea and river views.
