I normally hate power lines, but I don’t hate these people-shaped ones by Choi + Shine Architects.
About The Land of Giants:
Making only minor alterations to well established steel-framed tower design, we have created a series of towers that are powerful, solemn and variable. These iconic pylon-figures will become monuments in the landscape. Seeing the pylon-figures will become an unforgettable experience, elevating the towers to something more than merely a functional design of necessity.
The pylon-figures can be configured to respond to their environment with appropriate gestures. As the carried electrical lines ascend a hill, the pylon-figures change posture, imitating a climbing person. Over long spans, the pylon-figure stretches to gain increased height, crouches for increased strength or strains under the weight of the wires.
I just started a stupid twitter account where I tweet conceptual art ideas.
Its satire yah?
It’s not what you think it is
The origin of high-energy particles in astrophysics is still a mystery. Annihilation of magnetic field lines of opposite orientation, a process known as “magnetic reconnection,” may convert the magnetic energy into particle energy. In this process, the magnetic field will end up being confined within magnetic islands (represented as red blobs in this image), with high-energy particles meandering among the islands (represented as yellow tracks in this image). Although this image has nothing to do with biology, it carries astonishing visual similarity with the very first burst of energy in human life.

For each of the three dyes injected into the NIST microfluidic palette, an independent gradient forms that remains constant as long as flow into the system does not change. Overlapping the three gradients results in a blend of dye concentrations, but the combination of colors in any single location is distinctly different from all others location.
This could almost be a abstract watercolour.
I only just discovered the fabulous work of Rudiger Haugwitz when I found out he died this summer. Haugwitz was a chemist at the National Cancer Institute who used his scientific knowledge to create beautiful artworks.
Dr. Haugwitz used his chemical pigments to fashion abstract images on paper and canvas, and later on asphalt, foil and rubber. He called the medium “chemography.”
Can’t find an artist for this. But its called ‘5 Million Dollars, 1 Tereabyte’ and is on display at Art 404 gallery.
Comparable to Duchamp’s ‘Fountain’ this is a ready made for the digital age .This external hard drive contains $5 million worth of digital stolen media resulting in asking us questions about the nature of content and value itself.
