"Slowly Rising" suggested to me the image of the sun. A seed was born beneath the sun, the source of all existence. The seed absorbed the light. It created more seeds like itself, gradually increasing in number. Time passed, but still their numbers slowly continued to rise, and before long they were quietly swallowed up by their own shadows. After everything that had lived had perished, nothing but an empty world remained. There, once again, an environment where the next living things could grow silently began to spread.
"The balloon invasions I create are metaphors. Their goal is to change the way in which we see the things we live alongside each day without really noticing them. With Heartbeat I wanted to represent the Market Building as the beating heart of this area – connecting its past with the present day to allow visitors to re-examine its role at the heart of London’s life.
Each balloon has its own dimensions and yet is part of a giant but fragile composition that creates a floating cloud above the energy of the market below. This fragility is represented by contrasting materials and also the whiteness of the balloons that move and pulse appearing as alive and vibrant as the area itself."
Amazing tribute to one of my favorite movies. Esp, Totoro. :)
This is a new app I've been designing over at MartianCraft, called Re:quest. Send questions from your iPhone to a friend's Apple Watch for fast, and easy answers. Write questions with your voice using only syntax via your watch, so you never have to pull out your phone to ask someone a simple question. Check it out and download it for free. It was also featured here on Techcrunch.
Ellie Davies incorporates pools of light, smoke, and craft materials she places the viewer in the liminal space between reality and fantasy, a re-exploration of the natural world around us. In her series Stars, the artist overlays her own photography with stars plucked from imagery taken by the Hubble space telescope. These mystical images are created in order to encourage pause, and provoke thoughts about how landscapes influences our identity.
How does sound look like? How can you make it visible? Physically speaking, sound is always a vibration, whether it is the song of a nightingale, the sound of a piano or the human voice. It moves in waves, by the compression and rarefaction of the air molecules. Once the wave reaches our ear, our brain transforms it back into a noise, a melody etc. more on his website.
The ice cubes were made with a CNC router, which is like a reverse 3-D printer that carves finely detailed objects from a solid form. To maintain the specially crafted ice cube for as long as possible, it must be created in a chilled room no warmer than -7 degrees Celsius (19.4 degrees Fahrenheit). Once you pour your whiskey, the sculpture gets a brief, shiny coating before the finer details begin to melt away. This is something you pay a lot of money to enjoy ever so briefly.
