>> Art blog
Messy loads of reblogs contain e.g. art I find impressive, beautiful or interesting, photography, animals of many sort (especially cats!), overall things I find cute, gaming related posts, tattoos, nail art, and fandoms including Assassin's Creed, Disney, Ghibli, Pokémon and Adventure Time, to name a few. You never know.
I by myself am doing this and that. Cosplay, something-supposed-to-be-art, handcrafts, glass-works, gaming, daydreaming, roleplaying... and list goes on. I am a young woman living in Finland, Helsinki, and study arts here; my dearest wish in the moment is to have a cat. *u*
Isn’t he precious!??! He’s a Soay lamb from Scotland!
One day you’ll grow up (if you haven’t already) and get to choose between making rent, or filling your house with awesome completely necessary gaming furniture. We’re sure you’ll make the right decision.

Peel by YOY
To put it simply this is just a wall mounted lamp, however it creates a wonderful illusion that the wall paper is peeling away from the surface. The bright illumination given off makes it look as if you’re peeling away the paper to reveal another dimension beyond the walls surrounding you.
Cloud Lights - First, you need some cotton batting, a paper lantern, and three flameless candles, the type that Glade sells. Pull at the cotton batting until it looks fluffy, light, and cloud-like. Then, hot glue it to the outside of the paper lantern in various places. Make sure it´s fluffed to your liking, then light the lights and stick them inside. Hang the lantern wherever you´d like.
Light Emotion, Installation by TAKAHIRO MATSUO
An innovative initiative is taking place in the Philippines to bring sustainable lighting to homes in impoverished communities. Empty plastic bottles are installed in the roof, filled with water and bleach they refract sunlight. These “solar light bulbs” provide light equivalent to a 55watt light bulb.
Octopus chandeliers by Adam Wallacavage
Tokyo Hotaru Festival 2012 took place recently, releasing 100,000 blue LED lights to float in the Sumida River. The bulbs rolled along the waves of the river bank, mimicking hotaru (the Japanese word for “fireflies”), for the festival that celebrates the Japanese tradition of watching fireflies float along a watercourse. The spectacular event lit up the waterway with a sparkling sapphire radiance against the night sky.
The solar-powered LED balls, known as prayer stars, were designed to illuminate when they came in contact with water and were provided by Panasonic, one of the event’s sponsors. At the close of the festival, the bulbs were gathered by giants nets and removed from the stream.
