Swiss photographer Fabian Oefner added watercolors to ferrofluid and then placed them on top of a magnetic field. The results are awesome!

Maybe a business person is at a coffee shop for their morning coffee and over the edge of that nonesensical report they are reading they see a glint of color on the next table. Upon second glance the see an oddly engaging object with a tag that reads: ART BANANA (free). They have a secret moment of delight and tuck the banana away in their black attache and procede to work.

This campy miniature automaton by Thomas Kuntz was a one-off made for a client who in turn gave it as a gift to her fellow who loves magic and the haunted mansion.It features a miniature pepper's ghost illusion,two automaton fiugures,a pop up rose and a small 18 note music box of Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven.The mechanism is hand cranked and machined from solid brass steel and other metals all very tightly organized into the rather small cabinet, visual foreshortening and special painting gives the impression that the box is much deeper than it actually is!.It has a small hand cranked curtain that can be closed when it is not in use.All of the figures,engineering,machining painting , ornamental details and model work are by Thomas Kuntz.The miniature organist's costume was made by Blake Bolger.

You don't have to be a commercial artist to appreciate these whimsical and clever packages.

Think these beautifully colored abstract canvases would look great on your wall? Sure, you’d just have to put up with the fact they’re made entirely from puke. LA-based artist John Knuth creates paintings using house flies and their natural external digestive process. More than 250,000 flies are being fed sugar mixed with watercolor pigments and because of their constant regurgitation, they leave multi-colored vomit specks all around the canvas.

It's possible you've never heard of Simon Beck, but after today, you won't be able to forget him or his wintry works of art. Simon is an artist and is most well-known for making incredibly delicate and detailed art in the snow, just by walking over a fresh snowfall. He literally walks miles in the snow to create these pieces. And the part that blows our minds? He could spend hours upon hours creating one design, just to have it be covered by snowfall or blown away by the next day. But he still makes them.

These curious radial animations are from discs used in the phenakistoscope, a 19th century animation toy invented by Joseph Plateau. The animated GIFs seen here are from the Richard Balzer Collection.

David Smith, an artist who recently moved to the tiny community of Paulden, Arizona, has already become the talk of the town. Smith recently erected a nine foot tall gargoyle statue in his yard with a wing span of 13 foot. The problem is not the enormous size of the gargoyle, but the fact that it isn't wearing any pants.

One of my favorite actresses - Tilda Swinton - is reprising her performance art of sleeping in a box at the Museum of Metropolitan Art at unannounced intervals over the next year.

French artist Jeremy Laffon doesn't paint on canvas or sculpt in clay - his thing is architecture and his medium is sticks of chewing gum.

What comes out of the pan may take your breath away, but the bottom of the pan itself can be pretty mindblowing as well.

It may look like a gravel pathway - but this grey stretch of road is actually the world's longest trampoline. The rubber runway was installed as part of Russian art exhibition Archstoyanie 2012 - and lets visitors bounce along the full length of the road. The trampoline measures an impressive 170ft long - the same length as 13 double decker buses.

Japanese artist Sagaki Keita has added new and beautiful drawings to his portfolio that depict classic works of art, statues and monuments. Each of his drawings (some we have posted about before) are made up of hundreds, if not thousands, of small cartoonish doodles that mix together to make one giant image, when seen from afar.

When Seattle-based software engineer and Transformers fan Craig Kovatch saw a print called Optimus Prime Noveau, he was struck with divine, or at least DIY, inspiration. Kovatch felt that the image, which combines a giant robot subject with Alphonse Mucha styling, could work perfectly in stained glass.

So, I was watching the pregame show from last night's Bears game, and I saw something that I didn't know existed - Chicago has a statue of Bob Newhart that I now desperately want to sit on. Awesome.
