Here’s an installation that sets a new standard in mixed-media art. Designed by creative studio Marshmallow Laser Feast for the STRP Biennale in Eindhoven, “Forest” is a giant, fully immersive laser installation covering almost 450-square-meters and featuring 150 musical “trees” made of rods and neon lights. This was meant to be an art piece, not a mega-warehouse rave, right?
But wait, there’s more! Each tree is tuned to a specific musical note, creating harmonious sounds played through a powerful surround-sound system. The audience can freely explore the space, physically tapping, shaking, plucking, and vibrating the trees to trigger sounds and lasers. Interacting with the trees causes them to swing and oscillate due to the natural springiness of the material, creating vibrating patterns of light and sound.
Spring is finally here, there is a vague scent of warmth in the air… and The Presets have released a long awaited album. The Presets make two types of videos; either a psychedelic raw event, or a perfectly crafted heartfelt affair.
Who says multi-unit residential is boring most of the time? Well me. At work, most days.. but thats developer clients for you.
However. This project located in Carlton, Melbourne is surely the exception to the rule. The Hive Graffiti Apartments are the first in a series of ‘Hip Hop Buildings’ designed by Zvi Belling of ITN Architects. An excerpt of the architects statement is below, all of which can be read here.
The Hive Apartment was designed by architect Zvi Belling of ITN Architects.This site was specifically selected for a graffiti/architecture project. The ideas in the building have been refined over time by the designer in prior competitions, publications and collaborations with street artists. The architect developed the project with his neighbour (aka Prowla), a respected old school Melbourne graffiti ‘writer’ who contributed the design of the graffiti letters.
