Google ‘reef-view’ & Art on your desktop

Google “Reef-View”

Do you all still remember my last topic about the 9 eyes of google? This time I came across something interesting related to that. Instead of the street view Google introduced the underwater view within Google maps. From now on you can take a look at six different reefs around the world, just as you were used to looking at the streets.

Art on your desktop!

And then the topic for today, art on your desktop! Kuvva introduced a app for your computer (Mac and Windows) which shows you beautiful wallpapers from some of the worlds leading photographers, designers and artists. Whether you want to have new wallpapers every hour every day or every week. This even works for your twitter account. When you see a wallpaper and you are interested in this artist just with a few clicks you can find out more information about the artist. And that is how I came to know more about Icy and Sot. These street artists from Iran make artworks about: Love, hate, peace, human rights, Iranian Culture, hope, despair and children. Their work has been exhibited around the world. One ‘wallpaper’ I found really interesting is the one you can see below.

The reason why I think this is such an interesting project is because they show the reality of life as it is in Iran. People are working to build the country, but at the same time it gets torn down. In my opinion they can really inspire people by these street art projects. At least I am already inspired by this single image. And I hope a lot of you will be inspired as well.

Are you interested to see more beautiful arts just straight onto your desktop? Take a look at the website from Kuvva. And if you want to know more about the artists Icy and Sot take a look here.

Keep inspiring and stay inspired!
