    Sama päivämäärä on sielläkin huomioitu. Itse en huomannut tänään sitä mitenkään, kunnes avasin blogimaailman itselleni – siellä oli 121212.

    Erikoisen mielenkiintoisia gallerianäkymiä.

  2. 121212 on selvännäköisesti olemassa…
    ja paljon mukavia kuvia…

  3. Aivan huikeaa ideointia näyttelyssä!!

    It looks like you are enjoying the best of everything overthere.

    OMG… what a beautiful artworks. Spanish rocks, right? LoL’

    When are you coming back? That’s unfair! We are stuck with snow waist high (coz I am short) and it’s still snowing.

    Cheers,

  7. Love this art! So unique! Adore the world map detail, but I think my favourite must be the Mona Lisa peanut butter and jelly! So very clever!

    I love this art… a different view on classic pieces… like looking at the world through someone else’s eyes.

    I agree with Einstein. At least in theory. I need to live like that more often.

  11. avatar Keetha says:

    Oh my! Very interesting/cool indeed!

    I wonder how he thought to use peanut butter and jelly – – – or old computer parts for that matter.
