Rice field art in Japan

I found this beautiful rice field artworks. By intermixing the purple and yellow-leafed kodaimai rice along with the green-leafed tsugaru-roman variety, imaginative farmers in rural Japan grow rice paddy artworks in their fields on a massive scale. According to Pink Tentacle, “In recent years, a growing number of local governments around Japan have started organizing rice paddy art projects as a way to attract tourists and educate people about rice farming.”
I like it:)

New work by Dan Witz

In the past few years much of my neighborhood in Brooklyn has been torn down to make way for luxury housing. For better or worse it's a whole new street-scape out here. Personally, I can't say I like the new modern architecture very much, it's sterile and so arrogantly disconnected with its surroundings sometimes it seems like giant alien space ships have landed in the night. But, at the very least, there's some interesting new textures and surfaces to interact with. These are photo-based, heavily re-painted stickers, mounted on plastic and glued to the walls of the Ugly New Buildings. I hit the Lower East Side and East Village in Manhattan, and Bushwick, Dumbo, Greenpoint and Williamsburg out here in Brooklyn.

through bloomberg's sponsorship, the museum of contemporary art tokyo is currently undertaking a project
which gives young international artists the opportunity to exhibit their works in spaces outside of the
conventional gallery. this year, the museum's outdoor court 'sunken garden' has been taken over by architect
kimihiko okada's aluminum installation. the metallic mass creates a scene which whose appearance
is altered by unpredictable weather and the passage of time.
