I've come across a couple of pieces of art/design the last couple of days that I feel are noteworthy. First, is Ink Calender by Oscar Diaz.
(found via Craftzine.com)
"Spanish designer Oscar Diaz has designed a calendar that uses the capillary action of ink spreading across paper to display the date. Each month, a bottle of coloured ink spreads across a sheet of paper embossed with numbers, colouring them in as it goes."
I think it's stunning! (Printmakers have a think for ink and paper.)
Next, is wallpaper by Cassandra C. Jones. I love conceptual art, and this is rad:

It's called Good Cheer, why?
Here's what Jones has to say about the piece
"Good Cheer is an installation of wallpaper that is composed of found snapshot photographs of cheerleaders performing routine stunts that flaunt their briefs. This type of photograph, a young girl in uniform with one leg up in the air, has a duel connotation of family values and pornography all in one image. Good Cheer surrounds the viewer in this paradox of ethical ambiguity."
