Overhead Cat Playgrounds

German design company Goldtatze (Gold Paw) specializes in transforming ordinary rooms into overhead playgrounds for cats. By adding wooden bridges, hammocks, scratching posts, and even little dens for cats to hide out in, each site-specific installation offers playful felines plenty of room for adventurous activity and their much needed catnaps.

With Goldtatze’s installations, cat owners are given more room for their own furniture while allowing their pets to roam freely on their unique playground. The designed wall and ceiling fixtures also add an element of childhood excitement. The cat-sized architectural additions seem like a year-round dose of summer camp for the curious pets. They’re able to trapeze across the room, climbing the walls and scurrying across suspended bridges, while their owners man the territory below.

Marcus Yam’s Triple Exposure Photography

These beautifully composed triple exposure photographs were created completely in-camera by Seattle Times photographer Marcus Yam. Challenged to produce a visual story to go along with a Seattle Times essay, Yam determined that his standard photojournalistic approach would not fit with the content. So, he decided to illustrate the story by merging three ideas into one unique photograph without using any post-production Photoshop techniques.

New York City’s Beautiful Basketball Playgrounds

This Game We Play is an ongoing series started by French photographer Franck Bohbot when he first moved to New York. Just about every neighborhood throughout the city has at least one community basketball hoop where neighbors and friends can meet to compete in a friendly game or just shoot around for fun. This observational project highlights the single hoop structures that are placed directly within different urban environments and serve as a central point for local gatherings.
