Here's art that moved, and will move you: Last May, Brooklyn-based artist Swoon brought art to the sea by designing three handcrafted ships. Even more impressive, the vessels are made purely from recycled trash and materials.

A few weeks ago, before Intern Anna left our presence here at BUST HQ, she had a status update on Facebook that left me stunned:
