Lantern: AWP + atelier oslo

Posted in Architecture, Lighting, Social, Texture by RADDblog on February 12, 2011

French-norwrgian team AWPatelier oslo have completed ‘lantern’, a design that won them
first place in an international competition held by the city of Sandnes, Norway.

The community, which is the second fastest developing city in norway, lacked a defined identity
and welcoming public domain. In an area affected by a divided urban layout, the proposal aims
to create a space that would engage and integrate civilians into the less welcoming city center.

‘Lantern’, which sits in a narrow, pedestrian only square, was designed to accommodate a range of
potential activities including a market and a concert venue. Imagined as a place that would stimulate
creativity through creativity, the tree-like pavilion becomes a sculptural object and a destination in
the middle of the binary city.

Nils Völker / One Hundred and Eight

Posted in Installation, Motion, Performance, Sculpture, Texture by RADDblog on November 30, 2010

One Hundred and Eight is an interactive installation made by  Nils Völker. It’s made out of ordinary garbage bags which can be selectively inflated and deflated by two cooling fans.

Although each plastic bag is mounted stationary the sequences of inflation and deflation create the impression of lively and moving creatures which waft slowly around like a shoal. But as soon a viewer comes close it instantly reacts by drawing back and tentatively following the movements of the observer. As long as he remains in a certain area in front of the installation it dynamically reacts to the viewers motion. As soon it does no longer detect someone close it reorganizes itself after a while and gently restarts wobbling around.

Georges Rousse is a French photographer who makes photos of desolate or abandoned spaces. But before he does that, he paints some precise geometrical shapes which are some kind of optical illusions.

This is pretty phenomenal. Dentsu London, a creative communications agency, collaborated with BERG to visualize their “Making Future Magic” strategy in a movie. They decided to make a stop motion animation with light drawings made with an iPad. The result is amazing.
