Wish - art at the Belfast Festival

This looks like a work of Photoshop - at a glance, nothing in particular, right? But this portrait is very real and happens to be the biggest land art portrait in United Kingdom and Ireland, made by the artist Jorge Rodríguez-Gerada with the assistance of a lot of people autumn 2013.

Vertical Gardens

Patrick Blanc is a French botanic that became a designer using his knowledge about plants. He is perhaps mostly famous for the five stories high vertical garden arrangement on a museum in Madrid, Spain, in 2007. Even Blanc's - from the outside - ordinary apartment contains a wall that looks more or less like the one on the picture, with 250 different species, and the floor is basically an aquarium.  Pic source.
