I just learned about The Ideal Palace of Ferdinand Cheval. Another write-up here. NYT description here.

In 1879, a postman in southeast France builds an monument out of rocks that he would carry home on his daily route.

If palaces made from pebbles doesn’t impress you, how about 1000-tree forests, each tree planted by hand by one Jadav “Molai” Payeng? He’s at work at his second forest now.

I didn’t know people were doing this. Video projection on trees. Eerily beautiful. Definitely watch the video.

If faces wig you out, opt for the soothing geometry of Javier Riera.
