Self-described digital craftsman Piero Ciarfaglia (known also as zenoid) has created a map detailing the world’s alcoholic consumption and preferences by country. The map was compiled for data visualization site Ghost in the Data using alcohol and health data from the World Health Organization. The maps breaks the data down into Wine, Beer, and Spirits, and gives average numbers for consumption every week as well as a visualization of how many drinks it represents.
“Alienation” is a collection of portraits that challenges the viewer by using creative tactics based on the concept, “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change” – Wayne Dyer.

“Long Ma” is a 46-ton fire-breathing kinetic sculpture of a horse-dragon by French artist François Delarozière and his art group La Machine. The nearly 40-foot-tall sculpture features articulating limbs, an expressive face, and the ability to “breathe” plumes of fire and smoke. The sculpture recently debuted in Nantes, France, and is destined for China, where it will be presented as a gift to mark the upcoming 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between France and China.
