Gravity-Defying Land Art by Cornelia Konrads

German artist  creates mind-bending site-specific installations in public spaces, sculpture parks and private gardens around the world. Her work is frequently punctuated by the illusion of weightlessness, where stacked objects like logs, fences, and doorways appear to be suspended in mid-air, reinforcing their temporary nature as if the installation is beginning to dissolve before your very eyes. One of her more recent sculptures, Schleudersitz is an enormous slingshot made from a common park bench, and you can get a great idea of what it might be like to sit inside it with this interactive 360 degree view.

“It is as beautiful as it is rare.  A frost flower is created on autumn or early winter mornings when ice in extremely thin layers is pushed out from the stems of plants or occasionally wood. This extrusion creates wonderful patterns which curl and fold into gorgeous frozen petioles giving this phenomenon both its name and its appearance.”

Tarantulas have two retractable claws on the ends of each of their legs; these are used to grip surfaces while climbing.  The pressure applied to the tarsus (or foot) while walking or crawling causes the foot to split in two and allows the claws to fan out.  Surrounding the claws, the tarantulas also have a dense group of hairs (called the scopula) which aid the tarantula in gripping smoother surfaces such as glass.  You can see the scopula here.

Fungi (and nature in general) will never cease to amaze me. I could walk through a forest and stare at them for hours.
