Tuck me in – by Ignacio F. Rodó

“Tuck me in” is a short film by Ignacio F. Rodó. It’s a Filminute 2014 winner – and I have to say; my God, it’s so simple – but it creeps me out!

I love when you build stuff and locate stuff out of traditional dimension.

This is a 60-foot life-size indoor maze by the Danish BIG Bjarke Ingels Group placed at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C.

Very cool!

Riverbed by Olafur Eliasson

Riverbed by Olafur Eliasson_1 Riverbed by Olafur Eliasson_2 Riverbed by Olafur Eliasson_3 Riverbed by Olafur Eliasson_4 Riverbed by Olafur Eliasson_5

I’m a big fan of the Danish/Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson. He’s truly awesome at creating installations.

Like this one, at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art North of Copenhagen, Denmark called Riverbed. Here he has created a whole landscape of rocks and rivers – inside!

I want to go!

The First Law of Kipple – Chromatically Arranged Junk by Dan Tobin Smith

Photographer Dan Tobin Smith set up a website to ask the public to donate kipple: junk that was lying around their house – and give it a purpose as part of his installation for the London Design Festival 2014.

Dan Tobin Smith now had enough junk to create a sprawling installation that filled an entire floor and mezzanine, “carpeting 200-square-metres with a dense, precise, chromatically-themed arrangement of thousands of objects.” The objects are so carefully placed that gradients seem to blend together seamlessly.

The fictional word Kipple was coined by science fiction writer Philip K Dick. Kipple appears in his 1968 novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep” (the film adaptation was Blade Runner) and is used to describe useless, pointless stuff that humans accumulate. It served as the inspiration for Smith’s installation “The First Law of Kipple,” which was part of London Design Festival this month.

Meet Alex – the “Stalker Photographer”.

“I was introduced to Alex about a year ago through a mutual friend. I had heard about a “stalker photographer” from a couple people and was pretty intrigued. After about a two month process of trying to get her to sit down with me she finally agreed to tell her story. I was pretty blown away. Seeing the world through her eyes has been a unique experience to say the least. Her photos are unreal. Can’t say I completely agree with her craft but its very beautiful in its own way. If you’d like to see more of her work, go here, director MP Cunningham says.

Swinging Pendulums: Nowhere and Everywhere at the Same Time No. 2 by Wiliams Forsythe

Swinging Pendulums - Nowhere and Everywhere at the Same Time No 2 - by Wlliams Forsythe 1 Swinging Pendulums - Nowhere and Everywhere at the Same Time No 2 - by Wlliams Forsythe 2 Swinging Pendulums - Nowhere and Everywhere at the Same Time No 2 - by Wlliams Forsythe 3

Co-programmed in partnership with South East Dance William Forsythe‘s choreographic object populates the old municipal market space with hundreds of delicate pendulums, swinging in timed sequences. As you move around without touching the pendulums, your strides and side-steps will produce a lively choreography of manifold and intricate avoidance strategies.

Forsythe’s blend of choreography and artwork, in which you become the dancer, contrasts reactive spontaneity and pre-programmed precision. This is the latest reinvention of a piece that evolves in reaction to the space it occupies: a tribute to a great Brighton landmark destined to become a new Dance Space for the city.

In Orbit: Hamster Wheel Home Provides Offbeat Dual Living Spaces

in-orbit-Hamster Wheel Home Provides Offbeat Dual Living Spaces 1 in-orbit-Hamster Wheel Home Provides Offbeat Dual Living Spaces 2 in-orbit-Hamster Wheel Home Provides Offbeat Dual Living Spaces 3

Modern life is often compared to running on a hamster wheel: we do the same things over and over, but never seem to get anywhere. This was the subject of an architectural art installation called In Orbit, a 25-foot tall wheel of steel and wood. The two  architectural artists Ward Shelley and Alex Schweder lived in the wheel-shaped exhibit for 10 full days – one on the inside and one on the outside.

Each side of the wheel had its own living space, including a wardrobe, bed, desk with laptop and chair, microwave, toilet, and sink. In order to get from one room of the “home” to another, the artists had to move in perfect unison in order to stay standing.

In Orbit was installed inside the Boiler Room, a site run by New York’s Pierogi Gallery.
