Photographer Marianne Kjølner snapped this pair of photographs of a bizarre tree in Denmark. Of the photo she says: “This old pink house is situated at the old dunes, a few hundred meters from the west coast, a very windy place were there isn’t much that can grow. So the tree can only grow where it has shelter.”

Dieter Roth - Worktables
"The genesis of these works dates from the 1980s, when Roth decided to place gray cardboard mats on the worktables in the studios of his various homes and apartments.
He initially used them as writing mats, covering them with doodles, sketches, and all the ‘traces of domestic activities,’ as he put it.
The mats eventually became the foundation for all manner of collages and assemblages, a progression through time with continually shifting arrangements of objects and drawings, their seemingly anarchic placement achieving a certain ‘symmetrical ornamentation.’”
