Infrared by Klea McKenna

"No way was clear, no light unbroken, in the forest. Into wind, water, sunlight, starlight, there always entered leaf and branch, bole and root, the shadowy, the complex. The collaboration of living things with the long, elaborate death of leaves and trees… The view was never long, unless looking up, through the branches you caught sight of the stars. Nothing was pure, dry, arid, plain. Revelation was lacking. There was no seeing everything at once: no certainty."
- Ursula K. Le Guin, from The Word for World is Forest, 1972

Glow in the Dark, Resin Inlaid Wood by Mat Brown

on Etsy

A few days ago, UK industrial designer and jeweler Mat Brown shared with the Reddit community his ingenious idea for a set of resin inlaid chestnut shelves . He wanted to do something productive with a long piece of chestnut wood that he owned. .It was heavily cracked and had knotholes, so some woodworkers might choose to avoid it. 

But Brown had a plan. He mixed resin with glow-in-the-dark powder and poured it into the cracks and holes. He then varnished it with 8 or 9 coats of a linseed oil solution. Brown made the now elegant board into a lovely set of shelves that glow under black light.

  Luminous Mosque with the rainbow colors by Mohammad Reza Domiri Ganji

The stunning Nasir al-mulk Mosque hides a gorgeous secret between the walls of its fairly traditional exterior: stepping inside is like walking into a kaleidoscope of colors. Every day, the rays of the early morning sun shine through colorful stained-glass windows, transforming the halls into a dazzling wonderland of rich hues, patterns, and light that play on the floor of the mosque.

The Heavy Metal of Marilyn Minter

on Artsy

In visceral and gaudy paintings, photographs, and video works, Marilyn Minter examines the relationship between the body, cultural anxieties about sexuality and desire, and fashion imagery. Minter is best known for glossy, hyperrealistic paintings in enamel on metal that depict closeups of makeup-laden lips, eyes, and feet—a liquid-dripping gold-toothed smile or a pair of glistening high heels splashing in metallic fluid. Strut (2004–5) portrays a muddied foot in a gem-encrusted high heel. Minter also photographs body parts seen through panes of wet glass, captured from characteristically dynamic and provocative angles that suggest the seductive, disturbing nature of glamour.
