When 7 year old Caroline made it her mission to redecorate her childhood room every week, she spent hours building Lego villages and repeatedly painted and reconstructed Barbie’s dream house, she was either obsessive or a young design enthusiast in the making.

If you are at home right now with no weekend plans - this is for you.

If you are not at home right now and have tons of weekend plans - this is for you.


Visual artists MRRK and Ine van den Elsen have created this eye-banging video filled with color. They used a few petri dishes (like the ones in high school chemistry class!) water and some sort of oily ink - the results: a freaking trip into cracked-up space!
