Urban Light Cloud

Posted on | December 7, 2015


Inspired by the origins of light and the beautiful night skies of Alberta, Calgary-based creatives Caitlyn R.C. Brown and Wayne Garrett came together to create CLOUD, a spectacular art installation resembling a life-sized cloud built from 6000 incandescent light bulbs and 1500 lbs of steel.

Built in time for the eight-hour Nuit Blanche Calgary exhibition, Brown and Garrett removed the traditional ‘Please Do Not Touch’ rule maintained by galleries, allowing guests to freely linger beneath the raincloud and pull on their chains to power up the bulbs to create an immersive and beautiful experience for both participants and onlookers.

Post-City at Ars Electronica 2015

Posted on | September 20, 2015

Im Zentrum des zukunftsweisenden Festivals Ars Electronica stand heuer das Motto „Post City – Lebensräume im 21. Jahrhundert“. „Die Stadt ist“, und das wird in den vielen Symposien und bei der Gala im Brucknerhaus von Gerfried Stocker, dem kongenialen künstlerischen Vater des Festivals immer wieder erwähnt, „die erfolgreichste Überlebensstrategie und das größte Experiment der Menschheit“.

Stocker: „Das Festival nützt die Idee von Stadt, um auf Zukunftsentwicklungen zu blicken. Wir haben heuer die außergewöhnliche Möglichkeit erhalten, im ehemaligen Postlogistikzentrum am Bahnhof eine Festivalstadt zu errichten. Wir haben sie Post City getauft, ein interessantes Wortspiel mit der ‚Stadt danach‘, also der Stadt der Zukunft und der Location der Post City.“ Dort wurden auf einer Fläche von mehreren Zehntausend Quadratmetern Ausstellungen, Inszenierungsräume und eine eigene Konzerthalle eingerichtet, um über „die Stadt“ nachzudenken…

The Field Hammock

Posted on | July 13, 2014

Crave for the feeling of nature? I LOVE my Mexican hammock. But this piece of art has just become some serious competition for my piece of memory from my expatriate time in Mexico City. Seen at the Milan Design Week, this hammock combines the slow movements of a hammock with the relax feeling of lying in the fields. It blends the notion of nature and artificial, inside and outside.

The vendor tells me that it is water- and UV ray-resistant. It’s made of multicolored grass-like synthetic polyamide pile fabric. And it feels like lying on natural grass. A nice piece of ‘don’t need it but it’s so pretty I really want it’.

This Is What Supermarkets Of The Future Look Like…
Two young German entrepreneurs worked for over a year to make their dream of eco-friendly supermarkets a reality. Finally – a world of totally package-free food shopping. Bless. REWE, take a good look.



The love box

Posted on | February 20, 2014

This year Valentine’s Day was somehow special in Paris. It wasn’t just for those to celebrate who connect the day with romantic love; couples, lovers, people who are fond of someone. It offered very fast support to those who fell in love with someone at first sight. Which can practically happen on every street corner in Paris – as we know. The Flower Council Holland distributed 1500 ‘In Case of Love’ emergency cases carrying a beautiful red rose throughout Paris in crowded, and well-known romantic areas. “In case you meet your love at first sight, it’s easy to make it known. Just break the glass and take the flower. The only thing you have to do yourself is to declare your love.” Cute.
