Imagine how cool it would be if buildings weren’t actually constructed above-ground; if instead we lived in a large-scale garden of growing structures where architecture emerged, fully formed, from the earth. Landed, by Ian Strange, is a somewhat disconcerting sculptural installation outside the Art Gallery of South Australia, that gives the sense we caught a home as it slowly rises up like a submarine, or perhaps sinks back down into the depths.

Hilarious caricatures of bosses and uptight managers are a staple of any office. But unless you work in a design studio filled with artists, deciphering who a doodle is supposed to be can be tricky.

Or to have the regal Jackie O tatted up? It would be awesome.
