easyJet has created an immersive theatrical experience as part of its ‘Why Not’ campaign, encouraging a bit of spontaneity in all of us.

The event, which promoted Holland as a holiday destination, saw a mysterious plane door land in Shoreditch, offering an entry into an enchanted adventure.

Passers-by saw the country come to life, with 'intriguing characters, larger-than-life surroundings and plenty of surprises along the way', complete with tulips, bicycles, and The Girl with the Pearl Earring.

Hold the press: Japanese artist Chie Hitotsuyama creates incredible animals from old newspapers.

By tightly rolling strips of wet newspaper, the artist conjures colourful textures and intricate details, such as the rough fur of snow monkeys and hippo wrinkles, to make her creations eerily lifelike.

Hitotsuyama's work stems from her belief that animals are equal to humans, which can be seen from her incredible care and attention to each piece.

A renowned artist has added another dimension to Paris' Gothic architecture with a stunning virtual reality installation.

Miguel Chevalier has transformed the Sant-Eustace Church with his project, entitled Voûtes Célestes, or Celestial Vaults.

Chevalier uses virtual reality (VR) to map a colourful night sky on the church's high ceilings – but that's not all.

Celestial Vaults actually tracks the movement of visitors who travel through the church, changing shape and colour against the dramatic architecture.

The experience is completed with enchanting musical improvisations and repertoires, creating an immersive adventure into the mysterious Gothic.

A design studio has proposed transforming electricity pylons into giant figures.

Choi + Shine's 'The Land of Giants' turns these bleak, unloved structures into beautiful 150ft tall sculptures, suggesting locations for them around the world.

In the proposal, the figures are seen perching on the edge of cliffs, dancing through fields, and frozen on mountains.

The studio said: 'Like the statues of Easter Island, it is envisioned that these one hundred and fifty foot tall, modern caryatids will take on a quiet authority, belonging to their landscape yet serving the people, silently transporting electricity across all terrain, day and night, sunshine or snow.'

Most of us won't know a fore-edge painting by its name, but you've probably seen one or two before.

Fore-edge paintings are the intricate illustrations surrounding the leaves of a book, with tiny pigments building page by page to create stunning pictures.

Ever had an idea for an ad that you dream of making real? Some lucky New Yorkers have been contributing their own ad concepts for a fun 'streetsourcing' campaign for Asus.

Two improv artists asked members of the public to come up with their own quirky ideas, which were then combined into what the campaign describes as 'the best ad ever'.

The ad, called 'The Alien and The Dinosaur', includes a dinosaur chase on a tropical beach and an alien at a house party - sadly someone's idea of cats that turn into men didn't make the cut.

Promoting the launch of the Asus ZenFone, the ad is designed to show that the phone can ‘empower people to do anything they want’.
