A sculpture so tiny that it cannot be seen by the naked eye is claimed to be the smallest sculpture of the human form ever created. Measuring a picayune 20 x 80 x 100 microns, artist Jonty Hurwitz’s tiny human statue is part of a new series of equally diminutive new sculptures that are at a scale so infinitesimally miniscule that each of the figures is approximately equal in size to the amount your fingernails grow in around about 6 hours, and can only be viewed using a scanning electron microscope.  Read More

We've covered a number of unusual architecture projects here at Gizmag, but Alex Chinneck's latest creation is probably the first that appears to levitate. Following his sliding facade project in Margate, England, the British artist is back and wowing visitors to London's Covent Garden with Take my lightning but don’t steal my thunder: a melding of architecture and art that features a market building apparently floating 3m (10 ft) in mid-air.  Read More
