Biopresence – Human DNA Trees Imagine a graveyard without tombstones, instead there are growing trees that contain genetic material of the deceased people burried there. Biopresence creates Human DNA trees by transcoding the essence of a human being within the DNA of a tree in order to create “Living Memorials” or “Transgenic Tombstones”. Biopresence uses the DNA Manifold algorithm, which allows for the transcoding and entwinement of human and tree DNAs. The Manifold method is based on the naturally occurring silent mutations of base triplets, this means it is possible to store information without affecting the genes of the resulting tree.

Dreamoc Scandinavia 360 Scandinavian design has since the 1950s been equivalent to elegance and simplicity produced in high quality. The basic idea is to make useful and stunning products available not only to the wealthy, but also the common man who wants to enjoy the combination of beauty and function. By using modern production facilities and durable materials, Scandinavia has evolved to become one of the most respected and well-known regions for contemporary design. At first glance you will experience the minimalistic design of the Scandinavia series, but beneath the surface of the new Dreamoc is the advanced technology of our digital signage products, which gives you an exceptional and thrilling experience of 3D holographic projection, not compromising Realfiction’s basic idea of combining a physical product with holographic 3D content, which is the cornerstone of our product philosophy.

Yasuaki Onishi's Floating Mountain Made out of Plastic Sheeting & Hot Glue In his installation, reverse of volume RG at the Rice Gallery in Houston Texas, Yasuaki Onishi uses the simplest materials — plastic sheeting and black hot glue — to create a monumental, mountainous form that appears to float in space. The process that he calls casting the invisible involves draping the plastic sheeting over stacked cardboard boxes, which are then removed to leave only their impressions. This process of reversing sculpture is Onishi’s meditation on the nature of the negative space, or void, left behind. Onishi wanted to create an installation that would change as visitors approached and viewed it from outside of the glass wall to inside the gallery space. Seen through the glass, the undulating, exterior surface and dense layers of vertical black strands are primarily visible.
Soundwave Bracelets This is such a cool idea. It’s a custom bracelet of a soundwave rendered in 3D. The bracelet is “designed” by the waveform of the message it encodes.

Urban Dolls The idea of altering your body for aesthetic purposes is still somewhat frowned upon today. But more than because the very idea of improving yourself, this is about its irreversible nature. When a women has some silicons inserted in her mammary glands, she’s very unlikely to go to back to a petite 75B one month later, but that very same woman can simply throw her high heels in the corner and wipe of the lipstick after an important vernissage. Compared to plastic surgery, clothing and make-up are much more accepted ways of presenting yourself to the opposite sex as that hyper-attractive step up the evolutionary ladder. The Urban Dolls project of designer Vilma Jaruseviciute seems to refer to this paradoxical situation, although she very much presented her work as a critical stance on plastic surgery when I met her last week, at the DMY international design festival held at Berlin Tempelhof Airport. ‘It is getting more and more difficult to define a concept of contemporary beauty.
