The un-Christmas, all the aspects of the traditional Christmas tree, minus the pine tree itself.

Created using visual effect software Houdini by Polish motion designer who goes by the name 00.032, according to her dribble page, the piece takes after Matthieu Lehanneur’s original physical work of the same vein.
The French designer Lehanneur constructed a furniture collection called Ocean Memories that depicts three-dimensional ocean currents frozen into stone and bronze sculptures.
Lehanneur and 00.032 demonstrate both static and motion-centric representations of the Earth’s ocean.
Waves, a symbol of natural energy, have been a fascination with artists such as Hokusai for centuries.
According to a study done by professor Richard Coss, their inability to draw could’ve been due to the fact that they didn’t have to plan as hard as Homo Sapiens to hunt down prey in their native Eurasia.
Homo Sapiens, on the other hand, chased hard to get game in the open grasslands of Africa. They developed superior hand-eye coordination as a result of drawing out their prey on cave walls. Such artistry not only made them better visualizers and hunters, but it also helped them develop smarter brains.
