Occasionally on our daily It’s Nice That safari of creativity, we come across a big beast who we assume has long since graced these pages only to find that for some inexplicable reason they’ve slipped through the net. So it gives me great pleasure to present the work of Kevin van Aelst. For four years his weird and wonderful photographs illustrated the The Medium section of The New York Times and his work has also appeared in titles like Time, Wired, and Scientific American.

Some of this work you may have seen before, but there’s still a time and a place to celebrate a creative talent who combines limitless imagination with excellent execution. So whether it’s USB sticks poked through a pullover to create a cemetery or the world’s time zones represented via broken biscuits, now is that tine and here is that place. If you know the work remind yourself of its brilliance, if you don’t prepare to be delighted…
