LEGO Ideas – The Golden Girls Living Room and Kitchen Modular Set with Dorothy, Rose, Blanche, Sophia, and Stan.

This is a recreation of the Golden Girls House used in filming the popular 1980’s show that is still watched daily around the world.   It is the Foyer, Living Room, and Kitchen built like a TV set, with one wall removed and a full view into the space.  It comes with 5 minifigures including Dorothy, Rose, Sophia, Blanche, and Stanley.  It has been meticulously recreated to have opening cupboards and fridge in the kitchen, Wicker Sofa and Chairs, a hallway backdrop, a storage closet in the kitchen, and an outdoor area with potted plants and a hose.

Sculptures Made with Old Tires Melt into Barcelona’s Streets #ArtTuesday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/06/02/sculptures-made-with-old-tires-melt-into-barcelonas-streets-arttuesday/

The Creators Project posted about Project Pneumatic, which is a new installation on the streets of Barcelona with far from tiresome visuals.

Salvaged rubber tires get a surreal second life in Project Pneumàtic, a sculptural urban intervention from street artists Octavi Serra, Iago Buceta, and Mateu Targa. The installations were created by chopping up 40 used tires with a circular saw, and attaching the pieces to walls and sidewalks in a sequence that creates the illusion of sinking into the brown rock.

https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/04/28/new-york-skyline-time-lapse-video-plays-in-1-world-trade-center-elevators-arttuesday/

From My Modern Met via the New York Times:

As the sky pod ascends to the 102nd floor, visitors watch the skyline transform from flat, marshy ground to the familiar modern cityscape of the present, with decades zooming past in seconds. The amazing timelapse is a terrific precursor to the experience awaiting visitors at the observatory, from which they can gaze at the iconic skyscrapers dotting the metropolis today while remembering how much has changed in history.
