It looks like a vivid red carnation, but this flower is actually the result of mixing simple organic chemicals—and it measures just 10 microns across.
Because I’m a human who was once a child that read The Giving Tree and an adult who enjoys Pixar movies, it’s always fun to imagine things to have personalities when they clearly do not. Like these blooming daisies filmed by Neil Bromhall. They burst with such emotion that I first hoped it was some adorable animated…
After watching this wonderful time lapse of flowers blooming, I would forgive you if it made you think that flowers have their own personalities and feelings and lovable qualities. I believe it too! Look at that guy above preen and dance a little before opening up. It’s like a character from a Pixar movie only in real…
Flower fields are such a wonderful place to spend an entire day or stumble upon happenstance or purposely get lost in. The colors are breathtaking, the rows are perfectly manicured and it feels like it totally shouldn't exist. Here is drone footage of the Keukenhof Gardens in The Netherlands.
Gardens are beautiful and all but they're almost always inconveniently located on the ground. Instead of stooping to smell the roses, this garden comes to you: A suspended, living arrangement of 2,300 flowers which rises and fall around viewers as they move through the space.
Usually when you see flowers bloom, it's a beautiful, almost hypnotic phenomenon. It's not exactly that poetic with cactuses though. Though the flowers themselves are ridiculously vibrant, the cactuses look like they've had radioactive appendages randomly glued onto their bodies.
Many of us are still buried under snow, but that doesn't mean it isn't springtime, dammit. So enjoy these entries to this week's Shooting Challenge, spring.
Studio DRIFT made these lovely lamps that feel alive because they've been designed to bloom like a flower. It's a beautiful idea that's even more gorgeous when you see it happen, I would love to walk into my living room and have these ethereal lights dance for me as they descend and shine up the room.
I like food that's as close to being alive (or fresh, depending on your perspective) as possible. That's partly because it tastes better but also because it's tingly to see food move when you don't expect it too. This blooming chocolate dessert is a mover, all right. As you pour the cream onto the dish, the chocolate…
When I picture myself scuba diving in an alien ocean—yeah, that thought pops into my mind sometimes—I imagine an underwater world full of neon lights, kaleidoscopic corals, and water plants unfolding in slow motion like the ones in this video.
The Hitachi Seaside Park is one of the most beautiful parks in the planet: A place where millions of flowers grow every year in the most amazing displays of colors imaginable. Here you can see about 4.5 million baby-blue nemophilas blossoming in April—but there's more, much more.
It's the attention to detail that often differentiates a good product from a great product, but designer Norihiko Terayama goes above and beyond the call of duty with his f,l,o,w,e,r,s ruler, which uses tiny dried flowers to represent the centimeter markings along its length.
In the hallowed halls of our nation's capital, a shadow war that pits conventional, imported flower arrangements against a powerful cadre of American floral tycoons who just won't take "no" for an answer is being waged.
Almost everyone has some majestic memory involving summer sunshine cutting through a field and blowing white, fluffy dandelion seeds into the wind. Soon you can immortalize those warm feelings with a sleek, almost scientific-looking OLED lamp featuring a dandelion encased in acrylic.
Most objects created by 3D printers are made from hard rigid plastics, but as the hardware is continually being improved, new materials are coming into play. Believe it or not, at Victoria University of Wellington's School of Design, Richard Clarkson has succeeded in 3D printing these flowers from a soft rubber-like…
Be careful when you go around smelling flowers now, you never know when that pretty pink thing is actually a mantis looking to strangle your nostrils to death. Like this Orchid Mantis. It looks like a perfect pink orchid but is actually a mantis in disguise that strangles the hell out of its prey.
Digital artist and interaction designer Daniel Brown continues to tweak and evolve his eye-popping series of computer-generated flowers, this time around commissioned by the Art Fund's RENEW program for exhibition at the D'Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum in Dundee, Scotland. The efflorescing clusters of code are, in…
Last week, we looked at bugs. This week, I'm sending you back into the bush to catch more of nature's nuance on the macro level. For this week's Shooting Challenge, photograph the wonder of plants.
