Artist Rides a Three-Wheeled Dinosaur Cycle Across Southwestern Norway

Artist Rides Dinosaur Cycle Across Norway

This past spring, Norwegian artist Markus Moestue rode a three-wheeled dinosaur cycle of his own design on a five-day journey across Southwestern Norway. Moestue built the tricycle frame out of parts from three bicycles, and crafted the dinosaur (a Coelophysis) by hand out of foam and fiberglass. The 220-mile trip, across Norway’s “bible-belt,” as Moestue puts it, was the artist’s protest “against the dogmatic religious education of children.”

The Fascinating Tale of Christopher Thomas Knight, The Recluse Who Hid in the Woods of Maine for 27 Years

Christopher Thomas Knight, the North Pond Hermit

Journalist Michael Finkel recounts his encounters with the notorious Maine recluse, Christopher Thomas Knight (aka the North Pond Hermit) in the fascinating GQ article “The Strange & Curious Tale of the Last True Hermit.” Knight walked into the Maine woods in 1986, at the age of 20, and lived in seclusion for the next 27 years. During that time he lived in a simple camp and stole all the supplies he needed from nearby homes and camps. He was arrested in 2013 in the act of stealing supplies from a campground. In the article Finkel describes his letter correspondence with Knight, and his subsequent face-to-face meetings with the recluse at a Maine prison.

Humorous Collages of Photo Scraps Superimposed Over Scenes of New York City Street Life

New York City Street Life Photo Collages

New York City-based artist Kalen Hollomon creates humorous impromptu photo collages by holding photographic scraps in front of scenes of everyday city life. The collages often feature irreverant juxtapositions — a fashion model inserted into a McDonald’s, or fashionable stiletto heels tacked on to an NYPD officer. Hollomon has more mixed media art on his Instagram account.
