My Modern Met had the pleasure of attending Beakerhead, a five-day-long event in Calgary filled with extraordinary art, memorizing street installations, and thought-provoking talks about science, engineering, and art. Check out more highlights from the event, here.

One way to draw attention to those annoying potholes on your block is to turn the problem into a clever photo project. With the help of photographers Arturas Artiusenka and Eurika Balciute, a creative group of friends—called Z999—created this hilarious photo series as a way to raise awareness of the poor road conditions in the Lithuanian city of Kaunas.

Meet Priscilla and Poppleton (@prissy_pig), quite possibly the cutest pair of mini pig siblings ever.

Seth Casteel, the photographer behind Underwater Dogs, is back with the adorable series Underwater Puppies (available at Barnes & Noble). Casteel, who taught over 1500 puppies how to swim, hopes to raise awareness of rescue and adoption as well as water safety for pets with these playful photos.

Seoul-based digital artist and sculptor Kyuin Shim explores complex themes through his distorted visions of the human body. With a mastery of constructing sculptures and realistic, digital 3D renderings, the Korean artist creates monochromatic, mannequin-like figures whose forms are transformed in fascinating, sometimes unsettling, ways.

New Jersey-based photographer Ryan Struck seeks to capture the thrill and beauty of surfing in his gorgeous images of crashing waves awash with the glow of natural sunlight.

In celebration of their exhibit, Paradise Lost, at 1AM Gallery in San Francisco, artists Kamea Hadar and Defer set out to cover local walls with their signature artwork.

Artisan Kino Guerin crafts stunning wood furniture that appear to be tied in knots.

How fun is this?! This large scale installation at Beakerhead is like a giant spider web that invites visitors to climb around the space and bounce off the ceiling, walls and floor! Created by Numen/For Use, the self-supporting structure is inflated until the outer surface reaches adequate tension for stretching the nets. Stay tuned for more of My Modern Met's coverage of the event!
