Michael Rees has experimented with combining digital technology and contemporary themes with sculpture for 20+ years. The objects he creates are always the starting points for a rich interactive experience.
The Felleshus of the Nordic Embassies in Berlin is playing host to Architecture and Landscape in Norway, an exhibition running until January 17, 2019, showing a selection of photographs depicting the intersection of contemporary architecture and landscape along Norway’s most scenic roads.
The official National Scenic Routes are 18 specially selected roads that run along the coasts and fjords, and over the mountains and plains, which by 2024 will have almost 250 rest areas and viewpoints created by some 60 architectural firms, landscape specialists, designers, and artists.
The photographs are the work of award-winning photographer Ken Schluchtmann, who has traveled more than 25,000km over the past eight years, living in his VW-Bus for weeks to produce more than 10,000 photos. Schluchtmann, working with Berlin creative agency Bluescope, have created an experience that allowed visitors to immerse themselves in Norway’s impassable and impressive landscape. They’ve also used the architecture of the building to be effect – incorporating its various levels and materials, such as exposed concrete, glass, wood and metal, all reminiscent of the architecture depicted in the photographs.
ASCUS Art & Science, a non-profit founded in 2008 and based in Edinburgh, Scotland but serving an international community. It is committed to bridging the gap between art, design and the sciences by exploring how art, design and science can engage new and wider audiences for both fields. Below are a series of examples of art meeting science from around the world.
Spiral stairs are usually used in small spaces, but architects are taking the concept and using it to great effect in show-stopping designs that combine beauty with function. Here’s a handful of projects we’ve discovered that we hope might inspire your own creativity.
Our new global online open-call BEOPENinRGB is open for submissions! We invite you to go back to the basics of colour photography and videography and find inspiration for your future creative works. The RGB colour model was developed based on the theories of trichromatic color vision that first appeared mid-19th century. Already in 1861, the first ever permanent colour photograph was taken by J.C. Maxwell using three filters, specifically red, green, and violet-blue. Share your visuals centered around the simple palette of red, green and blue on Instagram, and get a chance to win€300! The entries are open till November 30, 2018. Don’t forget to add the #BEOPENinRGB hashtag to your post for everyone to see it!
Extortionate property prices in many cities are driving the need for creative thinking when it comes to designing and building new homes. There are also transport issues to take into consideration as city planners start to develop new infrastructures that move away from reliance on cars.
Tactical urbanism means making small-scale, temporary improvements to the built environment. Projects are often low-cost, temporary and demonstrative in that they show how urban environments can be improved, rather than supplying a finished solution. This approach can be hugely beneficial to urban areas, particularly those built many years ago and are hugely different – not only to the modern aesthetic but also today’s understanding of how urban communities are created and nurtured. Here, we bring you a selection of our favourite creative, Tactical Urban projects.
Design that offers a new perspective on everyday items can be both thought-provoking and inspiring. For this blog post, we bring you a selection of designer-artists whose experimental work takes an oblique look at the obvious.
