Inflatable Bouncy Stonehenge Installation

I'm sure that anywhere between 3,000 BC and 2,000 BC, the constructors of Stonehenge definitely didn't envision it as a bouncy playground for adults and kids alike! This inflatable version of Stonehenge, entitled Sacrilege, is the vision of British artist Jeremy Deller. “It’s something for people to interact with, it’s a big public sculpture,” says Deller. “It is also a way of interacting with history and archaeology and culture in a wider sense.”

The installation, placed in Glasgow Green for the Glasgow International Festival of Visual Arts, is Deller's first major public project in Scotland. The festival website explains, "Visual art happens all year round in Glasgow but for two weeks every two years, [the Festival] puts it firmly in the spotlight. From artists' studios through to major museums, by way of a vast range of venues new and old, the Festival is the perfect moment to get to know more about contemporary art and how and where it takes place in Glasgow."

It takes just minutes to deflate the bouncy Stonehenge every evening and re-inflate it every morning, just in time for participants to toss their shoes aside and climb onto the fun and playful public installation. Sacrilege will be at Glasgow Green for 18 days of the festival and then will be shipped off to ultimately arrive in London for the Olympic Games.

Reagan was adopted by Oregon resident Sandi Swiridoff when he was just 11 months old.

Photographer Captures Cozy Portraits of Her Cats by the Window Whenever It Rains

Photographer Felicity Berkleef was onto something when she first captured her cat sitting at a dreary window. Late last year, she snapped a sweet picture of the furry friend looking at the world while wrapped in a blanket. A couple of months ago, the other cat joined in and Berkleef tried to repeat success with another cloak. It worked! And according to the 21-year-old: “They didn’t mind.
