First, I know you wish I had identified where these ingenious contributions were located and who made them. I too wish I could answer all your questions–but I have included such info when I could find it.
Let’s start with the quirky.
New Kind of Art: Statue Posing
A charming tradition in Berkeley, California–people put benches in front of their homes for pedestrians to rest on. All bench photos by John Storey in Berkeleyside.
Artist Spencer Byles spent a year creating beautiful sculptures out of natural and found- materials throughout the unmanaged forests of La Colle Sur Loup (where he lived with his family), Villeneuve Loubet and Mougins, in France. He worked together with elements of his surroundings to create artwork that blends seamlessly with the environment.
Byles’ project is intentionally secretive – the only way you’ll see these works besides photos is by going into the woods and finding them yourself. The pieces were not intended to last, and each sculpture will eventually be reclaimed by the natural environment. “I responded in different ways to each location and worked on at least 20 sculptures at one time. I worked spontaneously with out any drawings or planned design”
German artist Cornelia Konrads creates mind-bending installations in public spaces, sculpture parks and private gardens around the world. Her work gives the illusion of weightlessness and freedom.

This is wonderful. Great Art. Thank you.
Excellent & Something different … Thank You.. (Again)
Wonderful. The only limitations of beauty, ingenuity and creativeness are our ideas & follow through.
These pictures and beauty is such an inspiration internally in a world that seems to be slamming strange negative stuff….Thank you for the time and energy put into this project….It brings me such JOY!
Each one of these pictures is a work of art with great imagination, skill and ability to implement. Of course the pictures are totally awesome and capture the mood and no doubt intention of the original creation.
I want to go with you! Wow just to be able to see the world through your eyes is next to being there. Thanks.
These are wonderful photos showing man’s bottomless reserve of originality, creativity and overpowering drive for self-expression.
Totally inventive, quirky and fabulous…Love the painted buffaloes and nature art, and all of it.
The image labelled “Bali, Indonesia swim resort” is actually a mockup for a proposed trampoline bridge over the Seine river in Paris. This video explains: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-FQCkU2dEeg

these photographs exemplify the human mind’s creativity, what one does not see the other man’s mind can see and create it. simply marvelous. Thanks.
