Several weeks ago, Swiss performance artist Milo Moire arrived at Art Basel in Switzerland completely naked, except for her shoes, a pair of glasses and the words "pants," "bra" and "jacket" written on her body. She wasn't allowed into the event as a result. When interviewed, Moire responded that "the art market needs the peculiarity of art...without this quality, even the prestigious Art Basel only sells illusions."

A Media System That Gives Physical Life to Digital Media In the digital age, the tactile joy of flipping through a stack of CDs or records has been replaced with the thoroughly unsatisfying actions of scrolling through files on a screen. Paris-based designer Ismail Salhi missed that feeling of physically choosing a record and putting it on the record player, so he dreamed up a new type of interaction with music and other files. The system is called Qleek. A Media System That Gives Physical Life to Digital Media

Creepy Black Balloon Will Follow You, Repeat Your Convos Creepy Black Balloon Will Follow You, Repeat Your Convos How terrifying would it be to turn around and see a levitating black balloon following your every move and repeating the last conversation you just had? Royal College of Art student Francesco Tacchini, in collaboration with designers Julinka Ebhart, and Will Yates Johnson, created exactly that, and called it Space Replay. The hovering balloon is stuffed with a battery-powered Arduino, an Adafruit Wave Shield hacked to record and playback, and a speaker. The components were sealed within a plastic cone to both amplify the sound and protect the balloon from the wires and other pointy objects. A small amount of helium was added to let the balloon hover, but no so much that it would soar above people’s heads. The Adafruit Wave Shield records ambient sounds and plays them back with a short delay, turning a sort of phonic mirror on the people in the space around it.

Resurrection Nightscape It’s always amazing to witness at artist who embraces one of their greatest limitations, turning it instead into one of their greatest advantages. For Korean artist JeeYoung Lee the question was how to utilize her small studio space in Seoul measuring 11.8′ x 13.5′ x 7.8′ (3.6m x 4.1m x 2.4m) that was proportionally miniscule to the scale of her boundless imagination. Instead of finding a new location or reverting to digital trickery, Lee challenged herself to build some of the most elaborate sets imaginable for the sake of taking a single photograph.
