“The reason that art (writing, engaging, and all of it) is valuable is precisely why I can’t tell you how to do it. If there were a map, there’d be no art, because art is the act of navigating without a map.” - Seth Godin

Sculptor Mike Libby makes these incredibly detailed steampunk robot insects using bugs he either purchases from licensed dealers or the ones he finds right at hand. He combines them with parts from antique pocketwatches and wristwatches, electrical components and odds and ends from sewing machines and typewriters. [via Chase Jarvis]
Dubbed “skywalkers” Marat Dupri and his friends have made it a goal to climb and photograph from the tallest buildings and structures in the world. Using no safety equipment he has scaled some of the tallest buildings in Russia and has now moved on to Dubai. From his vantage point he is able to take extraordinary photographs that have never been taken before. [via enpundit]

The Drawing Hope Project was created by photographer Shawn Van Daele. He has just begun this inspiring series which features drawings done by children born or living with health conditions. The drawings are then magically transformed into photographs. Only the first four out of twenty have been completed, but he is already planning another volume. [via inspire first]
