Ferrari 458 Spider

Yesterday  Ferrari announced their 458 Spider, a convertible version of their 458 Italia sports car. The 570 horsepower racer comes with a foldable aluminum hardtop roof, which folds into a space in front of the engine in just under 14 seconds. That of course seems long, considering that this beast goes from 0-100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds. Except for some other minor design changes and upgrades, the car looks pretty much the same as the 458 Italia. A release date has not been announced yet.

Alexa Meade – Human Canvass

Artist Alexa Meade’s technique involves painting directly onto the physical subjects that she is referencing, rather than using a canvas. Once the paintings are complete, she then photographs both the subject she had painted onto and the background. The effect creates an optical illusion as the 3D effect of her scenes is compressed into a 2D plane.
