A group of architecture students in California used 7432-sq-m of plastic sheeting to create a massive, malleable and climbable installation to fill a gallery space. The WHITE project was realized collaboratively by 20 students at the California Polytechnic State University , who fabricated and installed it in just five days.
Voici une œuvre d’art qui est actuellement visible à l’autre bout du monde, au Musée d’art moderne de Sydney .
It has taken from hundreds to thousands of years for architects and designers to perfect the art of translating from two-dimensional images to the three-dimensional world and back again. Augmented-reality technologies like this, however, promise new quantum leaps in matters of months.
Dites bonjour à l’ imprimante la plus mignonne que j’ai vue depuis longtemps.
Que peut-on dire en une seule seconde ? Pas beaucoup.
Not Another Brick In The Wall
Candid Camera with a Sling Don’t smile, don’t say ‘Say Cheese’ and definitely don’t strike a pose!
The experience of homes is all about the interior, yet most architectural models depict primarily (or exclusively) the exterior. Commissioned and published by the Museum of Modern Art in New York, this book shares its stories in empty voids rather than words or ink.
When you head into the wild, privacy may be of little concern as you progress further from the beaten path – views to and connections with nature may, instead, become a higher priority. Hence, the spherical BubbleTree tent with 360-degree lines of sight. The basic design comes complete with portable wardrobes, sofas, roll-out beds and even optional electricity for lighting. Translucent and half-transparent designs are also available, depending on one’s desired degree of environmental exhibitionism. For those who still see this as ‘roughing it’ there is a leveled-up luxury version titled the BubbleLodge that works much like a hotel, featuring opaque sides and attachable bathroom and secondary bedroom spaces.
Smart Energy, an energy drink produced by Spring Valley , is being promoted as the source of good energy with “Junk Ballet”, a commercial featuring a zoetrope made out of junk. The campaign is linked with an online interactive site, Makes Good Energy Totem . Most energy drinks focus on negative behaviour – partying, extreme cliff jumping, etc. Junk Ballet is a piece of film that asks the question, ‘What you would you do, make, create if you actually put your energy towards something good?’ The zoetrope, built on the beach with pipes, books, little people, rubbish bins, blow-up plastic dolphins, and toilet bowls.
There is a brief head-scratching moment when one first sees these strange wooden rugs and has to wonder: is that mobile, functional, art or all of the above? These are precisely the design questions Elisa Stroyzk wants more people to ask. These wood carpets work at a weird intersection between art and design – grafted, geometric, laser-cut wood leftovers are attached to a functional and flexible textile background. The only question is: how comfortable is it to curl up with a wooden blanket? This designer is ultimately, perhaps, more of a material scientist and philosopher than an artist, calling into question our use (and reuse) of objects and the ways in which we understand the conventional properties of everyday materials. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
Everyone claims they want a house on the water, but few get to experience that desired proximity quite so directly.
Yarn tells two kinds of tales: narratives are said to be weaved or spun as yarns, but there is a more literal meaning we also know. This curious street art project spans both definitions, creating small stories while infilling physical gaps in urban fabric. Juliana Santacruz Herrera began this beautification project in Paris, selectively decorating cracked and broken parts of the pavement with stretched yarn in a rainbow of colors. There is an almost-organic nature to the strange formations of string that result, as if they had crawled, intertwined and nested of their own will in a mysteriously self-selecting manner.
Over a quarter of a century ago, an architect stumbled upon the half-ruined remains of an old cement factory.
Hidden inside a steel cargo container, rusted from a life of shipping at sea, lies a secret luxury home layout that unfolds at the push of a button – opening like an ocean clam to reveal a fully-furnished set of floor plans – as precious and surprising as a perfect pearl. The flip-open mini-house designed by Adam Kalkin is illuminated from a suspended chandelier and set of built-in table lamps. These lights turn on remotely as the project is opened up (via hidden hydraulics) to reveal a series of semi-divided spaces unlike any residential plan you have ever seen – an open layout that amounts to a combined set of living, lounging, library, dining, sitting and sleeping areas.
