Pop Goes the World: "Ruby Trax," Disc 2 Ah, now that’s more like it. As we discussed in the previous PGTW installment, Disc One of Ruby Trax was a rather inauspicious first step for such an ambitious project. They had their pick of the UK’s top acts, and they thought that letting the Fatima Mansions creep their way, both literally and figuratively, through Bryan Adams’ “Everything I Do (I Do It for You)” was not only a good idea, but worthy of the opening disc? Huh.
Street art made with masking tape Buff Diss is an awesome Melbourne based artist who has recently stranded himself in Europe. Some of his work can be seen in Paris, Barcelona, Jerusalem … All his works are made free-hand with masking tape. Take a look how his friend Mark Mawson from Sydney captures these beautiful shots by dropping paint in water. Digital Music by Quiet Ensemble Founded in 2009 by Fabio di Salvo and Bernardo Vercelli, Quiet Ensemble is a charmingly oddball artist collective: it generates audiovisual performances by capturing the movement of various objects and creatures, ranging from goldfish to pineapples to snails. Hoping to celebrate the “invisible concerts” around us every day, di Salvo and Vercelli use sound equipment and digital software to transform motion into a symphony of unexpected, delightful sounds. Inspired by John Cage’s dictum that the creation and performance of music should embody freedom of aesthetic expression, Quiet Ensemble strives to reveal hidden or often-overlooked aspects of the environment around us.
Museum of Arts and Design Collection Database Dead or Alive, presented by the Museum of Arts and Design from April 27 through October 24, 2010, will showcase the work of over 30 international artists who transform organic materials and objects that were once produced by or part of living organisms-insects, feathers, bones, silkworm cocoons, plant materials, and hair-to create intricately crafted and designed installations and sculptures. The exhibition explores a territory related to MAD's Second Lives: Remixing the Ordinary, which featured contemporary works created from multiples of ordinary manufactured items. In Dead or Alive, the materials transformed by the artists are entirely natural.

The Human Harp Transforms the Brooklyn Bridge into a Giant Musical Instrument The Brooklyn Bridge is one of the world’s most iconic structures, boasting stone block archways and airy rows of cables that give it an almost harp-like appearance. For sound and performance artist Di Mainstone, walking across the historic bridge gave way to some major inspiration. She noticed the long matrix of suspension cables resembled the strings on a musical instrument. The realization led Mainstone to her latest project, the Human-Harp, which mixes architecture with sound to make music with the Brooklyn Bridge. The Human Harp is actually a number of clip-on sound interfaces designed to attach to the wires on suspension bridges. Utilizing music boxes equipped with magnetic digital interface modules, Mainstone found a way to translate the natural vibrations on a bridge – normally unheard by the human ear – into audible notes.
