Artist Laurent Gongora “redrew” the shape of a waterfall in France’s mountainous Massif Central region by attaching 24 geometric metal elements to the rock behind the Cascade de Vaucoux. The metal triangles form a diamond in order to divert the torrents of water in unexpected directions.

Gongora’s project is titled Les Cascadeurs, which translates to “the stuntmen” and also relates to the French word for “waterfall.” http://dlvr.it/6Tl8H7

The Ballerina Project is an ongoing exploration of the elegant beauty of ballet dancers as seen through the lens of photographer Dane Shitagi. Rather than being confined to a studio, Shitagi prefers to photograph his subjects outside on the streets, inspired by the rawness and atmosphere of the living city. http://dlvr.it/6T7XTD

Derwinska combines photography and digital manipulation to create surreal works of art that seem to act as metaphors for life, expressing themes like loneliness, isolation, separation, reflection, and joy as each figure contemplates their paths in life. http://dlvr.it/6SghS5

Turkish company Pugedon recently introduced an ingenious recycling box that’s an innovative way to help both the environment and stray animals. It releases food for the city’s stray dogs and cats every time a plastic bottle is deposited, and it allows people to empty their water bottles for the animals as well. This wonderful service operates at no charge to the city because the recycled plastic pays for the cost of food. http://dlvr.it/6S9q3b
