To hold the brew until you drink it.

But others find ways to recycle the aluminum cylinders by turning them into apparel, cameras or even art. The Hill. Nestled in the plains of West Texas, the renowned American Artist, James Magee, has been working on a large-scale art installation known simply as The Hill.

The Hill

Found on 2,000 acres of desert in Cornudas—roughly 70 miles outside of El Paso—stands four identically constructed buildings connected by causeways. Each building is an estimated 40 feet long, 20 feet wide, and 17 feet high and made entirely of irregularly cut shale rock. These sister buildings collectively form The Hill, and is a testament to the ingenious engineering and artistic skill of James Magee.

Each of the buildings that make up The Hill feature an iron portal that marks the entrance to each structure. BBC Four - Handmade in the Pacific, Series 1, Pou.

Head Above Water Sculpture installed on the Thames to Provoke Conversation about Mental Health - Inspiring City

Created by designer Steuart Padwick it is a commentary on mental health and seeks to use art to get people talking about mental health issues. Linking in with the London Design Festival and ‘Design Junction‘ the sculpture will light up at night with the ‘mood of the nation’. The work is interactive in that those using twitter can use the hashtag #headabovewaterlondon to describe how they are feeling. Dependent on the words used, the digital lighting will then create a colour palette which constantly changes. The head itself has been designed to be gender, ethnicity and age neutral.

First in line is the Orb, designed by Danish architects Bjarke Ingels and Jakob Lange. The gigantic reflective globe was funded by a recent Indiegogo campaign that raised $34,251 for the installation, the support structure of which required 30 tons of steel, welded over 1,000 hours, along with 1,500 hours of sewing of metallic fabric to create its 21,500-square-foot surface. The fan-powered sphere itself is a massive 83 feet and 8 inches in diameter–1/500,000th of the earth’s surface–and is meant to “blend entirely into its surroundings and become part of the desert,” the duo explain. “The ORB is a tribute to Mother Earth and human expression.” The idea?

Throughout the film the particles swarm through different white rooms, each labeled with subtle wall text that broadly defines the physics of each animation such as flow, diffusion, and pressure. Set to a score of hauntingly hollow tones, Elements is intended to express laws of nature and mathematics, visually representing the composition of particles found in each of us. “The film is a trial to explore the idea that everything around us and inside us is made from simple elements or blocks which can be arranged in complex relationships and become compound structures,” says Zhestkov. “We could project this idea into emotions, behaviors, thought processes, relationships, life, planets and the universe.” A Replica of the Parthenon in Germany Constructed from 100,000 Banned Books.

Toucan, hummingbird and Mexican quetzal were chosen because of their glowing chromatic range. In an attempt of generating a balanced dialogue between machine made and handmade objects, we made soft and continuous shapes milled with CNC technology contrasted with handmade painting done by immersion in coloured water, an experimental technique we developed for this project, which gives the birds a unique personality.

This technique of painting allows to achieve an interesting texture of intersections and transparency made by layers of colour that resembles the plumage of birds. The amount of colour, hue and the way sections cross one another depends on the time and position the wood is plunged. Tetrapod (structure) - Wikipedia.
