So I know I promised rather summery visuals for this week – but these sculpture by Inna Babaeva really caught my eye. Her work is undoubtably strange, but as with much of the stranger material posted here, I love the way sculptors can play with notions of liquid and solid.

Liu Shuwei shot some great photographs for designer Momo Wang – these particularly strange looks somehow fit great in the  surroundings.

Dream Diaries by Vaka Valo

It’s hard to tell what Vaka Valo is going for in this rather abstract series of mixed-media artworks – but then again, if these are snippets of dreams, it’s hard to tell what goes on in dreams generally. But there’s definitely something fascinating about the world Vaka Valo creates in this series, it’s as if a pink-textured construction manual came to life and took an absurd and disturbing twist.

There’s something cool about the way John Opera processes these pictures of the sun.

Sebastian Schramm has a Flickrstream full of the strangest photography – from balloon-headed animal statues to incredibly colourful rotting veggies. In between Sebastian also takes awesome portraits such as these, where a compositionally-traditional portrait turns into a remarquable picture through the strange use of household items.

Wait. wait. wait. what?

That just about sums up my reactions to Li Wei’s awesome acrobatic/stuntsman/scaffolding/staged photos. Have a nice weekend, and please do not try this at home (unless you’re wearing bright pink tights – that seems safe).

Ukrainian photographer Sasha Kurmaz has a very raw style of picture-taking. It seems rather uncut (much like his labyrinthic portfolio-website) and very experimental – while often capturing great stills of unorthodox body-positioning.

French illustrator Julien Pacaud not only seems to have had the coolest career-turns (as “astrophysician, an international snooker player, a hypnotist and an esperanto teacher”) but also creates the coolest collage-style illustrations.

His works portray the strangest human/intergalactic scenarios – with the greatest titles such as “Labyrinthic Love”, “The End of the World Fanclub” or “Concerto for Two Rifles and Bird”.
