Giant Fish Sculptures Made from Discarded Plastic Bottles in Rio

Giant Fish Sculptures Made from Discarded Plastic Bottles in Rio
As part of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) an enormous outdoor installation of fish was constructed using discarded plastic bottles on Botafogo beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The sculptures are illuminated from the inside at night creating a pretty spectacular light show. Love this. See much more over on this Rio+20 Flicker set. (via hungeree and razor shapes)

Cyreal » Multiscript Typography La experiencia Los visitantes se descalzan antes de entrar en el esclusa de aire. Una vez adentro, pueden pasear libremente o simplemente acostarse y disfrutar del ambiente adentro de la estructura. La primera reacción es a menudo de sorpresa y placer ante la inesperada belleza de la luz. La luz diurna, filtrada por el pvc coloreado es resplandeciente y su luminosidad tiene un efecto directo sobre los 5 sentidos. Caminando por túneles laberínticos y amplios domos, el público se mueve entre tonalidades de color, ora sutiles, ora saturadas. A los visitantes les estimula descubrir como se mezclan los colores y como transforman las caras y la ropa. No se produce dos veces la misma visita ya que la atmósfera adentro está alterada por los cambios climáticos y las variaciones de la luz diurna. Los visitantes suelen expresar su experiencia comparándola a un viaje adentro del cuerpo humano, o bien a una estación espacial.

Park your car Dirty...Bring Home a Work of Art. This Parking Attendant does something Unbelievable. Most of the time parking attendants laugh at dirty cars. But that’s not the case in Azerbaijani, where a talented artist works as a parking attendant. Rafael Veyisov has made a habit of turning dirty cars into an elaborate work of art. He has been doing this for the last 10 years. Using only his fingers to create impressive cityscapes and other imaginary scenes, during his work hours in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan. Drivers are surprised, impressed, and loves his work, so most of the time car owners even intentionally park their cars dirty to give him a good canvas. Imagine what this guy could do with proper art materials.

Primarily for “Quick Change” oil facilities, this new line needed to coexist with — and complement — the existing Pennzoil and Quaker State lubricants. The new system exudes technology and performance, instilling confidence in the “Do It For Me” user base.As part of the presentation of solutions, we demonstrated the in-garage organization system that would help users to quickly identify replacement parts. Rather than burden the system with photo- or illustration-based cues, we elevated and simplified the widely used product numbering system, saving time for the experienced mechanics, and saving production costs for the packaging group, too, without sacrificing brand impact.

Like the rest of the Rising Series, the table utilizes a unique slat-folding technique to transform from a flat piece of seemingly solid wood to a fully functional table with an intricate web of wonderful angles and angular shapes that are a signature of this remarkable designer.

Lamps Made from Sawmill Waste and Tree Branches Embedded with Resin and LEDs For his Brecce collection, Italian designer Marco Stefanelli devised an ingenious way of removing fragments from sawmill scraps, tree branches, and cement fragments, and replacing them with perfectly sculpted resin embedded with LEDs. The resulting lamps retain the organic nature of their original form yet cast a beautifully subdued light. You can see much more on Stefanelli’s blog. (via the awesomer)
