There is a stunning metallic dome floating on the Bronx River in New York City right now—this fragile-looking structure is made of discarded umbrellas salvaged from the city’s streets and recycled plastic bottles. Created by husband-and-wife design team Amanda Schachter and Alexander Levi of SLO Architecture, the Harvest Dome 2.0 had a predecessor that was accidentally destroyed while being installed—this newer and better version has been made possible by a successful Kickstarter campaign.

That stormy sky behind is a great backdrop for this interesting sculptural work that stands in the grounds at Heidi Gallery in Heidelberg, Melbourne. The surface constantly changes in appearance due to the light and shadow of the sun and the ever-moving cloud formations.

Once upon a time glowing gilt and golden, gradually meditating in a garden is altering the appearance of this little Buddha. 
He was rescued many years back from the side of the road where he was dumped for hard rubbish collection. He had a chipped nose and a few bits of gilt were flaking, but he still looked great.
He seems to enjoy moving about the garden as plants grow and overshadow his portly frame. However in this spot he himself seems to be growing and becoming one with the plant life.
