Spot in Vöcklabruck by Westpol architects.
Westpol architects created this wonderfully picturesque spot in Vöcklabruck, Austria where visitors are able to sit in the middle of a pond without getting wet. The scenic landscape includes a path leading down to a hollowed out circular area where people can take a seat and relax amongst nature. It’s a surreal journey along the gradual ramp to the observational platform as the water level gains height either side. Once in the resting area, depending on perspective, visitors seem like they’re wading in the lake without a drop of water on them.
What the what!?
oh I wish it was made of glass!
“Hello there tumblr. It took me long enough to find this site. And I have to say it really it missing something.”

“I-I’m not on any sites, Mom!”
Emerging Danish ceramicist Maria Rubinke blends the childlike and innocent with the grotesque in her sculptural work, creating pristine porcelain toys and corrupting them with streams of red glaze emanating from rips and tears in their anatomies. The porcelain toys become biological beings whose visceral injuries can be difficult to look at despite the chubby-cheeked figures’ adorable countenances. Elements of the grotesque and the cute break down, pulling the viewer between these opposing poles. Take a look at some of Rubinke’s sculptures below.
