Meet the Where’s Waldo of the Instagram age. Momo a 6-year-old border collie is the star of a hide-and-seek photography project by his owner Andrew Knapp. Knapp told BuzzFeed he started taking pictures of Momo from afar to make a book for his nieces and nephews. The book comes out this May but in the meantime you can follow Momo on Instagram and try to find him yourself.
Museums often frown on the taking of photographs, especially if you’re trying to take a selfie with a famous painting. Not the Art In Island museum, though. The museum in the Philippines encourages the taking of selfies and wants visitors to become a part of the art. In fact the paintings they exhibit are often not complete until the museum goer becomes a part of it.
“Art In Island allows visitors to interact and have fun with the art pieces,” Art In Island’s Facebook page reads. “You can take as much pictures and videos as you want! Here in Art In Island, we want you to BE PART OF ART :)” Good Magazine calls it the world’s first selfie museum.
The Show You Should Be Watching

The entire 13-episode season of the dark comedy is on Netflix making it the perfect weekend binge. Fans of Tina Fey won’t be disappointed.
