“Abandoned Lighthouse to disappear by 2023.”

Rubjerg Knude Lighthouse, Northern Jutland, Denmark.
This lighthouse was built on the top of a cliff in 1900 and ceased operating in 1968.
With coastal erosion and continually shifting sands a major problem in the area, it is anticipated that by 2023 the cliff will have been eroded so far that the lighthouse will fall into the sea.

Are these trains about to take over the world?

Michael Knudsen, a photographer from Denmark, has captured what looks like the beginning of the robot rebellion.
The stunning image shows three trains stationed side by side, their carriages appearing like the bodies of mechanical snakes.
What’s more eerie, though, are their headlights glowing like red fiery eyes staring right at us!
The photo, went viral on the Bored Panda Facebook page.
Knudsen has an entire photography series on the trains and their depot, some of which you can see below.

“In the Greenhouse”.

I-Drivhuset

Artist Susanne Ussing (1940–1998) was a Danish visual artist and architect who worked in a variety of different mediums from photography and ceramics to large-scale installations and sensory exhibitions.

One of her most impactful pieces was this 1980 installation titled I Drivhuset (In the Greenhouse) that was installed at the Ordrupgaard Museum in Copenhagen. The sculpture depicts a female figure who has seemingly grown too large for (or has become trapped by) a very tall glass greenhouse.

Constructed from newspaper clippings, wood, and metal chimney vents, the figure is so large that her feet seem to penetrate the brick floor below. If Colossal had a physical manifestation, I imagine it would look almost exactly like this.

A retrospective of Ussing’s work titled “an Exhibition in the Midstream between Dream and Prosaic Reality” is being held in the Den Frie in Denmark.
