I had lunch with my good friend and artist Stella Lai (above) this afternoon. You might recall her cover art for Giant Robot 58, her contributions to Giant Robot Biennale 2, or her Mr. Chiizu app. She informed me that the software for embellishing photos, which recently began offering a theme by Junko Mizuno, launched a feline Christmas package today.

It’s actually not that uncommon, if you look it up, people have made even larger trees with more plastic bottles. This one is at a Chinese hotel. If lit right, it’ll work great. Lit wrong and you’re sitting on a goldmine of bottles that should be at a recycling plant. If left outside in the US, this bottle tree would be gone by morning. There’s a video – it was removed since it autoplays. If you want to see the video of this tree, then click on the link. (Washington Post – Bottle Tree)
