New creations have emerged in the art world. A solar-powered lamp was created by Olafur Eliasson and Frederik Ottesen. This artistic, palm-sized lamp runs off of solar power. It was designed in hopes to bring light to the 1.6 billion people in the world without electrical access.

Matthew Day Jackson is an artist known for using multiple mediums for his art. He recently started pursuing drag racing – and created his first drag-racing car. The dragster runs on a 950 horse-powered engine and has reached up to top speeds of 179 miles per hour.

Pedro Reyes, a Mexican artist, recently took 6,700 guns seized by the government and turned them into musical instruments. Reyes did this project as a pacifist stance against violence. In a past project in 2008, he took 1,527 weapons and melted them down to create the same amount of shovels, which he then planted the same amount of trees.
