Artificial Domestic House Cats As Land Animals

Related stories: Ferral Pets

A large cat mask, being worn by a man during the 2009 San Francisco LGBT Parade, gazed up close directly into the camera. A black cat statue remained at the back of the shelf as other knick-knacks were added over time. A carved wooden giraffe up-staged the cat. And to add insult to injury, a plastic bottle completely blew away any hint of an aesthetic. A stuffed cat sat on a chair in front of a window. It looked perpetually relaxed sitting there, never moving, never chasing a mouse. Inert yet soft. View all

The view from off axis revealed the hands and vent to be merely painted on a small square board. Up close, the illusion remained. A pair of small gloved hands grasping a vent from the inside. A small mural by Blek Le Rat hung on a wall just off the sidewalk. From the distance, it looked like a vent with a pair of small hands holding on from the inside. View all

Butterflies appeared to move right to meet the Umbrellas. Combined, together they created an eight sided design. Umbrellas decorated the parking lot wall on the rightside.. At the left end, butterflies flew in profile. Cars blocked the view of the bottom of the mural. The mural was on a wall just behind the parking lot. It had umbrellas on one the right, and butterflies on the left., Umbrellas appeared to be moving left to join with butterflies. There were clouds over the butterflies. They went from one end to the other end. A row of business offices were on the right of the parking lot. Notice the umbrellas on that side. View all

Another muralist named Blek Le Rat painted vents with gloves poking out of them. Here a pair of actual gloves were stuffed into an actual vent, thereby creating a fake Blek Le Rat mural within this mural. The fish was drawn swimming atop waves and red stones jutting out of water. The bird had a snake-like tail that occupied the rightmost panel of the building. Another version of this mural (or perhaps and earlier version) instead (in this panel) showed a talon holding a doughnut. A closer shot of both the fish's eye and the bird's eye. A closer shot of the tail of the fish. Notice how up close it looks less sharp then it did from far away. View all

A water-logged log lay in a tide pool. Stumps envy metal neighbors. A classic stump found beside a placid lake. A tree stump lay sideways near the high water limit of Heceta Beach in Florence, Oregon. A drowned stump appeared to wave for help. A stump found by a poolside. A stuck stump was mired in sand at low tide. Stumps appeared to escape by crossing a swamp. A stump appeared to be struggling to re-grow. Stump so lazy that grass grew on it. View all
