Arty bits big and small

There are so many talented humans out there and it seems that many of them end up with their fine work on Colossal. The site features principally physical art and design, though digital techniques play their role for many artists and creators. There are far too many fascinating pieces to show off, but here are a few that really talk to me somehow, they are clever, complicated and inspirational.

So that was all about one scale, at the other extreme how about this design by German architect Ole Scheeren (OMA) for a 77 story tower (is it art as well) in Bangkok, Thailand. While the design is fascinating and in a strange way appeals to me, I really like these two images created for it. The first has some excellend vertigo going on and the second is a lovely representation of a flow of occupancy/activity (complete with elephant). The last image shows more of how the tower design 'works' but there is much more info over on Dezeen as always.
