For an extra credit project, my student Daniel chose to create a set of tiny monsters using his kneaded rubber eraser, which is stretchy and shapeable like clay. He gave me permission to share the results with you, my faithful readers.
Daniel Gray and Kathleen Starrie, a boyfriend-girlfriend team built it using milk cartons and colored water to make colored blocks of ice for this beautiful sculpture.

My friend (and co-worker) Peter Feltham made this amazing icicle lantern to celebrate the new year. Watch the video to see it!
I’m in love with this set of photos by Alexis Lanza. The photos are so simple and beautiful displayed together in this manner. The intensity of the colors gives them the effect that they could be super-realistic paintings, but I think that is because of her use of large format film when taking these photos.
Wanted to share this photograph created by Emily Cain on Flickr. I am not sure if this was made in the darkroom or not, but it certainly could have been.
Photography students, how would you attempt to create this in a darkroom photograph? (This requires some creative brainstorming!)
