The Underwater Sculpture Park is the work of sculptor Jason Taylor from England, who has a passion for creating fantastic and unique pieces of work depicting Grenada’s colourful history and folklore and placing them underwater. All of the sculptures are in beautiful clear shallow water easily accessible by divers and snorkelers. The sculptures end up creating artificial reefs, and enhancing the marine environment.
The response from visitors diving the site has been reported as nothing short of amazement and fascination on the whole concept. “the artist’s interventions promote hope and recovery, and underline our need to understand and protect the natural world.”
The American artist Gordon Matta-Clark (1943-78), who trained as an architect, used the urban environment and more specifically buildings as material. He arranged empty premises by, among other things, cutting out fragments. With his interventions he transformed architecture into sculpture, he exposed the soul of a building: to convert a place into a state of mind.
American artist Sandhi Schimmel has mastered the art of transforming trash to treasure in her unique mosaics made of paper waste. Gold’s exquisite work includes paper waste from: menus, junk mail, greetings cards, advertising brochures, and much more. She sculpts various papers, images and text, to form portraits unlike any you have ever seen! Her purpose as an artist is to create unique, amazing portraits while helping the environment by re-using commonly wasted products. Schimmel used tax forms and political junk mail to create this stunning masterpiece shown below! Her collection includes many other amazing recycled art pieces, each unique and exquisite. All of her work is not only truly amazing but 100% eco-friendly!
The artist makes incredible portraits by recycling paper, canvas, frames and brings acid-free, water-based and non-toxic adhesives and lacquers to use. She creates the portraits by reusing the same images that arrive via mail by cutting them in a way that a completely new and interesting artwork can be formed. If you wish to see her extraordinary artworks, then they are on display at galleries in several cities in North America. Schimmel Gold is also featured in the recently released 2010 edition of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! annual book, “Seeing Is Believing.”
These are the most weird and unexpected creatures which appear on buildings in our towns. These creatures became part of urban environment, recognizable signs in towns and take part in people’s everyday life.

Imagine how much money you could save, if you made an office completelyÂ out cardboard. Impossible; I hear you say. But these images say otherwise. Yes, it is possible and it even looks really cool.
I believe it would be a perfect option for all companies that want to show their care for the nature, and the headquarters of save the nature activists. This, light and fully recyclable office, looks good and perfectly functional. The only thing you need to worry about is your employees bringing a lighter to work. I would buy a good supply of fire extinguishers along with it
