Having grown up with fond memories of playing in a treehouse, Atlanta-based environmentalist Peter Bahouth partnered with local builder Nick Hobbs to design and construct his own adult version. Bahouth selected a trio of trees to build the structures in, resulting in three enchanting spaces linked together by a suspension bridge.

Norwegian artist Markus Moestue built and rode a three-wheeled dinosaur bicycle across the Bible belt of Norway as a form of protest against religion.  He explained, “It is a protest against the dogmatic religious education of children, and the idea originated from the theme-parks of creationists that teach children that humans and dinosaurs used to live together.” http://dlvr.it/6dV3Ml

In 1974, photographer Daniel Sorine stumbled upon two mimes in Central Park and took a few moments to photograph the duo as they quietly performed.
