Brainforest

Brainforest is the name of a piece by Gerda Steiner & Jorg Lenzlinger but I think it’s also a great way of describing the style that all of their work has. Steiner was originally a wall painter and Lenzlinger was creating stalactite-like forms when they joined forces in 1997. The amount of detail in their large scale installations is staggering. You can tell how much I love their work by the number of images I have included in this post.

    wow. that’s so scary. I had a designproject in school and was going to make a miniature of this installation, only I didn’t know this even existed. the project was canceled though.
    Anyway, it’s beautiful

    I saw their piece in a church in the Venice Biennale a few years ago. It is truly a thing of beauty in the flesh, a really relaxing experience.

    im new to this website and just saw these images. I would die to see any of them in person. Does anyone know when these were done? if they’re still up and if they will ever do it again. Im going to Europe this summer and would beyond thrilled to see them. I think they are the most amazing thing I have ever seen

Artist JR Makes the Louvre’s Glass Pyramid Disappear

JR3

You may remember JR from his silent protest with Darren Aronofsky last year (click here for previous post). This time around the French artist has covered the Louvre’s massive glass pyramid with a black and white rendering of the building behind, creating the effect that the landmark has disappeared. The installation will be messing with selfie-seeking tourists from now until June 27th. More images below!

Photographer Captures Rare Natural Phenomenon

Kagaya1

Japanese photographer and digital artist Yutaka Kagaya happened to be in the right place at the right time, capturing what looks like a rainbow-blasting airplane flying above Oshino-Mura, Yamanashi Prefecture. While the effect can be explained as a form of cloud iridescence, that’s still pretty amazing! Check out a spectacular close up shot below!

June 6th to 8th marks the return of the Design is Future “congresstival”, which involves 3 days of 15 speakers discussing success stories and new approaches to design, specifically focused on improving people’s lives and the world around us.
