FM.Marche.Itani Si Che BELLISSIMA✪Le ❙t e Amo<3

The Marche is one of the 20 Regions of Italy. The Italian name Le Marche is the plural of marca, and literally means "the Marches", originally referring to the medieval March of Ancona and nearby marches of Camerino and Fermo.
The Marche are located in the Central area of the country, bordering Emilia-Romagna and the republic of San Marino to the north, Tuscany to the north-west, Umbria to the west, Abruzzo and Lazio to the south and the Adriatic Sea to the east. Except for river valleys and the often very narrow coastal strip, the land is hilly. In the nineteenth century, a railway from Bologna to Brindisi linked the Marche along the coastline of the entire territory. Inland, the mountainous nature of the region, even today, allows little travel north and south, except by rough roads over the passes.

Machine Gears Transformed into Modern Metal Furniture

Machine Gears Transformed into Modern Metal Furniture | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Did you ever think that the simple gear would have a place in contemporary furniture design? Manufacturer Remy Barrere Gears collaborated with French designer Amaury Poudray to create a series of tables inspired by the machine part. Aptly called Gears Table Collection, the modern furniture pieces recently made an appearance at Paris Design Week.
Poudray built the three tables out of metal and stainless steel gears, which gives them a minimalist and industrial appearance. Each has a different height - small (28 inches), medium (30 inches), and large (43 inches) - and a distinct use. The smallest is meant as a coffee table, the medium acts as a petite center table, while the large one can be used as a side table or even a bar stool.
Although the gear could be overlooked as just a mundane object, this collaboration shows that the vision of a designer can transform the ordinary into something spectacular.

15-Year-Old Creates Incredibly Imaginative Miniature Photography

15-Year-Old Creates Incredibly Imaginative Miniature Photography | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Look closely at these miniature scenes and you may be surprised by what you discover. 15-year-old Zev Hoover has a wildly vivid imagination that he translates into unbelievably magical moments. The young Massachusetts-based artist began taking pictures when he was just 8-years-old and, over the years, he has developed his skills to an impressively high level.
Hoover creates a wonderfully imaginative world by photographing regular-sized backgrounds and scenes and then shrinking his subjects down to appear miniature. He tries to shoot everything in the same location but, if that's not possible, he makes sure to match the lighting as evenly as he can, sometimes drawing in shadows. He then digitally blends elements from multiple photographs together into a single, whimsical moment that doesn't quite match up to reality.
"What's really cool about shooting my pictures is that it's a totally different world: Kids sitting on acorns; rafts made of popsicle sticks; floating down a stream on a…

Striking Installation Features Nosediving Airplane Suspended from the Ceiling

Striking Installation Features Nosediving Airplane Suspended from the Ceiling | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
The new KINDL—Centre for Contemporary Art recently opened its doors in Berlin with a site-specific installation titled Kitfox Experimental, created by St. Gallen, Switzerland-based artist Roman Signer. The title of the piece refers to the aircraft used in the installation, which dangles from the former brewery complex's 20-meter high ceiling in a dizzying display.
"An airplane hangs about four meters above the ground with its nose pointing downward—a lightweight aircraft," Signer describes his work. "Then there are powerful fans on the walls that cause the plane to move, since it is hanging from a joint that can be turned very easily. And so the wind is supposed to cause the airplane to turn, as if it were spinning in a nosedive as it plummeted downward." Caught in a suction of constant movement, the overwhelming presence of Kitfox Experimental confronts the viewer with a simultaneously discomforting and engaging experience.
The KINDL, although still under construction, will…

Brilliantly Clear Nightscape Photos

Brilliantly Clear Nightscape Photos | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
For the Austria-based photographer and dentist Nicholas Roemmelt, inspiring nature scenes start in his own backyard - all he has to do is strap on a backpack and walk toward the mountains. From it and other travels, he captures gorgeous images of tranquil, scenic views. His nightscape photography reveals a countless amount of bright stars set against a dark, brilliantly-purple and blue sky.
Roemmelt says that he fell in love with working at night because it seems to have its own rules and a magical appearance. This type of photography has long exposure times and requires the patience of the photographer. It’s well worth the trouble, though. The results are pictures of the galaxy uninterrupted from urban light pollution as well as majestic rock formations that have an incredible presence once the sun goes down. In a fast pace world that always seems to be on the go, these images remind us to slow down and admire just how beautiful the world looks.

Interactive Dancing Traffic Light Makes Waiting to Cross the Street More Fun

Interactive Dancing Traffic Light Makes Waiting to Cross the Street More Fun | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
It's easy to become impatient while waiting to cross a busy intersection. Recently, the original smart car company, Smart, designed this clever and interactive sign to entertain pedestrians while waiting to safely cross the street.
Installed in Lisbon, Portugal, The Dancing Traffic Light actually shows off the dance moves of people in real time. Individuals are invited to enter a large booth located nearby. First, they choose their own music and then, when the light turns red, the music begins to play and every dance move is translated into a little red dancing figure on the street corner.
Instead of hurrying across the street in front of a speeding car or a moving bus, pedestrians found themselves captivated by the silly movements featured on the crosswalk sign. According to research, 81% more people stopped at the red light. That's definitely a safety stat worth celebrating with some stylish dance moves! Check out the video below to see the creative concept in action.

Serene Luminescent Waterfall Paintings by Hiroshi Senju

Serene Luminescent Waterfall Paintings by Hiroshi Senju | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Internationally acclaimed Japanese artist Hiroshi Senju is known for his large-scale paintings of waterfalls painted in the tradition of nihonga, a traditional Japanese style that uses pigments ground from natural materials such as minerals and shells. The New York-based artist's series Nightfall is a departure from his usual style, as Senju used acrylic and fluorescent pigments on Japanese mulberry paper to create the gorgeous forms of cascading waterfalls.
While the paintings are beautiful in every light, they truly shine in the darkness. The fluorescent materials make the artwork glow with a ghostly aura, transforming the serene nature scene into a mysterious, almost supernatural nighttime landscape. Water gushes from the undepicted top of the waterfall, flowing down in powerful, luminescent streams to crash into the pool below, creating hazy sprays of foam and droplets.
"The biggest characteristic of Japanese culture is an awareness of being in nature. We are trying to express the…

Glowing Interactive Circular Swings Change Colors with Motion

Glowing Interactive Circular Swings Change Colors with Motion | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
For the next few months, this interactive Swing Time installation on The Lawn on D in Boston invites residents and visitors to sit back and relax while swinging in one of 20 glowing hammocks. The temporary project was created by Höweler + Yoon Architecture and was developed as a way to "create a new type of city park" where everyone is invited to gather and play or exercise.
Each swing is custom made in three different sizes from welded polypropylene. Inside of the circular structures, LED lighting responds to movement depending on whether or not it is being used. At a standstill, the round form emits soft white lights, but then, as a visitor swings and rocks inside of the structure, an internal micro-controller changes the lighting from white to purple to indicate motion.
Check out the video below to see the swings in action.

Adorable Bull Terrier Stars in Owner's Imaginative Illustrations

Adorable Bull Terrier Stars in Owner's Imaginative Illustrations | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
What do you get when you put together an illustrator, his Bull Terrier, and some white walls? An imaginative series of portraits starring the adorable pup, of course! Rafael Mantesso, who works as an editor-in-chief for a Brazilian gastronomy marketing website, has turned to Instagram to document his doodling adventures with his dog, Jimmy Choo (named by his ex-wife, who was a stylist).
After his divorce, Mantesso was left with just his Bull Terrier and an empty white house, so he decided to fill the space with creative illustrations. Jimmy Choo was more than happy to help, as he happily posed for photos after a simple "Stay" command. Using blank walls, a marker, and sometimes silly props, Mantesso turned his dog into a flying superhero, a soulful singer, an lovable convict, and even a canine version of Botticelli's Venus!

World's Deepest Swimming Pool is an Astounding 131 Feet Deep | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
So, maybe you’ve swam in the deep end of the swimming pool, but certainly not one like Y-40 The Deep Joy. Just how deep is it? Well, it measures 21 x 18 meters (69 x 59 feet) and has a maximum depth of 40 meters (131 feet). That’s the equivalent of diving the height of a 12-storey building! With specs like that, there's no surprise that it’s the world’s deepest swimming pool.
Architect Emanuele Boaretto designed the Y-40 for the Hotel Terme Millepini in Montegrotto Terme, Italy, where it was created with the ambition of becoming the “best swimming pool in the world.” It’s currently open year round and offers plenty of things to do. Stay at the hotel and partake in scuba diving, free diving, aqua fitness, and other water-centric activities.

Illuminated Woven Tree House Sits High Amongst the Branches | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
UK-based artist Tom Hare created the Cherry Tree House, a large-scale structure woven from thin boughs of wood into a beautifully spherical shape. The organic sculpture sits amongst the branches of a tree in the backyard of a private residence. At nighttime, illuminated with lights that reveal the intricate form and texture, the Cherry Tree House truly comes to life, taking on the appearance of a magical home for creatures like fairies high in the treetops.
According to the artist, his medium of choice is willow for its many special properties. "There's something about willow that’s evocative. The smell, the texture, the way it moves," he says. "The connection with nature, through coppicing and transferring observations into design, can be a humbling experience, and a physical one too."

Fragmented Mural Combines Optical Illusions With Street Art Style

Fragmented Mural Combines Optical Illusions With Street Art Style | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Italian studio Truly Design recently completed a project that combines the magic of optical illusion with a street art style. The four creatives that make up the practice originally bonded over graffiti during their teenage years. They used this passion and skill to create Vanitas, a large artwork that’s spread among many sand-colored rectangular forms.
Truly Design painted subjects that have to do with science and technology: a human skull, a butterfly, and a spaceship are just a few. It’s all fractured on different sections of the outdoor boxes, and depending on your vantage point, things either look disjointed or like one cohesive piece. Sometimes, everything seems to exist on a single plane, but we know that it's just the studio cleverly fooling our eyes.
Vanitas was created for the public exhibition Art on Science and hosted by the Polytechnic Federal School of Lausanne. The title of the impressive optical illusion actually refers to the word vanitas, which is a theme that was…

Explore Worlds of Fantasy

Explore Worlds of Fantasy | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Ventura County, California-based photographer Christopher J. Rivera explores extraordinary worlds of fantasy in his spectacular conceptual photography. Although only 21 years old, Rivera has developed a mature sense of storytelling in his work, often crafting a larger narrative and writing a few lines of prose to accompany each photograph. The result is an impressive portfolio of images as compelling as they are visually stunning.
Rivera's photos are marked by recurring themes like magic, natural elements, and the surreal. A young man battles plumes of ominous darkness with a shining wand in one image, giving a nod to the wizardry of Harry Potter. Another photo features a sorcerer clothed in black, a flock of crows swirling around him. Several shots incorporate mastery of the elements, as figures are consumed by fire, fly through the air, or appear to defy gravity in intriguing contemplations of youth, freedom, and power.

Amazing Time Slice Collages Represent Hours of Passing Time | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Los Angeles-based photographer Dan Marker-Moore captures long periods of time through creative Time Slice photography. Across the course of minutes and hours, Marker-Moore uses a tripod and a lot of patience to document beautiful cityscapes, the gorgeous colors of a setting sun, or the rising moon.
Afterwards, he digitally slices sections of each photograph together into a single collage. The results are a magical representation of passing time consolidated into one still image. "I like to approach each timeslice a little differently, and explore what works for the scene," explains Marker-Moore. "A lot of them fall flat. In fact, I shoot and edit quite a few that don’t work for each one that I share. Important aspects of a winning timeslice include good variation of color in the sky and strong subject. I really think I’ve only begun to explore design possibilities."

Japanese Bonsai Tree Thrives in Underwater Environment

Japanese Bonsai Tree Thrives in Underwater Environment | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Botanical artist Makoto Azuma explores new and different ways to view the iconic Japanese bonsai plant. His latest work uses natural materials and LED lights to submerge one of Japan’s oldest art forms in a minimalist underwater environment.
To construct the bonsai, Azuma used a twisted piece of deadwood for its trunk and added java moss to resemble the leaves. The tree was then placed in a tank with lighting and CO2 emissions to spark photosynthesis. A filtration system helps keeps the water free of bacteria and allows the moss to thrive.
The gentle flow of water causes the tree to slowly wave back and forth and the moss' small hairs to subtly move; this fosters a calming and almost hypnotic feel as you observe the work. It’s an unexpected way to view a bonsai, and Azuma offers another intriguing, contemporary spin onto this thousand-year-old tradition.

Russian-born art director Constantin Mashinskiy has taken to the streets of Paris to document the iconic city's inhabitants, one striking portrait at a time. The photographer reached out to us to share his impressive series 365 Parisians (365 Parisiens, in French), for which he plans to capture a street portrait of a stranger in Paris every day for an entire year.
Shot in a classical, black-and-white style reminiscent of the aesthetic of old street photography masters, Mashinskiy's images give a face (or multiple faces) to the beautiful, often romanticized city of Paris. While the series features some of the characters we might expect to see—the sharply dressed gentleman, the intellectual clothed in black, the glamorous and mysterious young woman, the overworked chef taking a quick break—it also depicts a slew of unique individuals who prove that Paris is as diverse as it is stunning.

If you thought it was impossible to improve on Seth Casteel's niche of photographing dogs playing underwater, think again. The California-based photographer, who became an overnight sensation and New York Times Bestselling Author because of his book Underwater Dogs, is back with Underwater Puppies, a series that showcases adorable puppies swimming in a pool.
Casteel's new volume features 72 puppies from 6 weeks to 6 months of age. Besides the fun aspect of photographing the cute little pooches making hilarious faces underwater, Casteel's goal was to raise awareness of rescue and adoption as well as water safety for pets. He says, "To create this series of photos, I taught swimming lessons to over 1500 puppies, helping them build confidence and safety skills in the water. Many of the puppies only swam for a few minutes and learned about buoyancy, their physicality in the water and most importantly, how to get out of a pool, but some of the puppies immediately thrived and began playing,…

Cape Town, South Africa-based artist Lorraine Loots has an incredible eye for detail. In her series, called 365 Postcards for Ants, Loots plans to produce a miniature painting every day for an entire year.

"At first it was just me doing my thing, doing my paintings, but then people started booking [sentimental] dates [for paintings to be done on that day]," she explained.

Wooden Spiral Staircase Has Fanning Steps Flowing Into Graceful Form | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
We’ve marveled over a number of beautiful staircases recently, and the Risa by Norwegian architect Tron Meyer is no different. The modern spiral staircase is made entirely from locally-sourced laminated wood that’s formed into graceful, curving steps. Normally, you’d see something like this constructed in concrete or steel; Meyer’s creation breaks conventions while also implementing a design that increases the amount of walkable surface area.
The Risa staircase features a smooth, sleek look where each component fans out and flows into a larger form. Its steps are precisely cut using computer-controlled machinery, and they are comprised of three sections which are later combined to form a single piece. The lower area of the step is carved in a concave shape that adds a unique visual touch. Additionally, it provides more width closer the the stair’s central column; having this extra space makes it safer when you traverse the Risa.
