The Rose de Jéricho (Anastatica hierochuntica) is a species of desert moss that has the amazing ability to ‘resurrect’ itself after bouts of extreme dehydration lasting months or even years. After just a few hours of exposure to moisture the plants burst to life, uncurling from a tight ball of dry leaves to a green flower-like shape. Videographer Sean Steininger shot this timelapse of several plants as he exposed them to water.

Splendid Surreal Paintings of Olaf Hajek

Although German artist Olaf Hajek is best known for his illustrations accompanying stories in everything from The New York Times to Playboy, it’s no question that his angular and surreal works can stand on their own. With stong, graphic lines, dreamlike colors, and rustic, stylized forms, his works effortlessly meld a graphic design sensibility with the tactile qualities of paint or collage. Not to mention their uncanny ability to whip a viewer into an art-induced trance…

The majority of the images are form Olaf’s most recent exhibition at Whatiftheworld Gallery in Cape town titled Strange Flowers.
