Photographer Builds 8 Magical, Color-Immersed Sets Over 8 Months

If this isn’t one grand undertaking, I don’t know what is! In January, Brooklyn-based fine art photographer Adrien Broom put out a call on Kickstarter to help fund The Color Project, an eight-part exploration of the world of color as seen through the eyes of a little girl. Part photography, film, and installation art, it’s a multimedia story that follows a young girl as she wakes up to a world in which all color has vanished. After exploring The World of White, she finds a door that leads her to her first discovery, The World of Red. As the story unfolds, we find the girl traveling from one color-immersed room to another, rediscovering all the colors that create the world we live in. At the end, the girl will arrive at the end of the rainbow where all the colors meet.

Most impressive is that the photographer is building eight distinct sets starting with white, running through all the colors of the rainbow (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple), and ending with the full spectrum. Each one is shot in her New Haven, Connecticut studio. The whole project will take place over the course of 8 months with each room taking over a month to create and shoot. Of course, Broom isn’t working on this project alone, she has assembled a team of artists including bakers, florists, sculptors and other craftspeople to help her create each unique, whimsical world. As many as 10 people have helped to create just one set.

So far, The Color Project has taken the viewer on a magical journey through four worlds: white, red, yellow and blue. Notice how incredibly detailed each set is! You can see the full project on Broom’s website where you’ll also find some great behind the scenes videos.

Beautiful and inspiring! Can’t wait to see the rest.

Japanese Man Masters the Gravity-Defying Art of Stacking Coins

Japanese Twitter user @thumb_tani (aka Tanu) has mastered the art of balance. He uses his keen sense of equilibrium to create small, fascinating sculptures from carefully-positioned coins. Although many of us have probably attempted this same sort of coin stacking, Tanu takes these arrangements to a whole new—and totally epic—level. Using a variety of denominations, Tanu creates intricate structures that range in shape and size. Often, he’ll first build a strong base using staggered coins.
