  • I saw the expo in Paris a month ago, it was brilliant.

  • Wow, great work

  • These are incredibly beautiful! Can’t say I’ve ever seen anything like them.

  • Rhonda G

    Stunning!

  • Magda

    Well done!

  • Collin

    i have no words for how incredible these are

  • I love the detail and perfection gone into making these portrait costumes. My initial thought is that they are based on animals, I see a Ram, some sort of reptile, a lion, and maybe a beaver?? They’re so different, the mix of materials and shapes are a joy to see. You can tell that there were no boundaries for these ideas, everything was made to work one way or another.

  • Took me a while to ever recognize that the first image had a person in it. These look like they’re a lot of fun to make. Cool.

Portuguese-Italian collective Moradavaga have built a shimmering sunwheel for the annual Festa de São João do Porto (Festival of St John of Porto) in Portugal. Measuring eight meters in diameter, the piece is the result of hundreds of gold plates, fitted together in such a way that they move independently according to changes in wind and light, as well as rotations manually controlled by passersby. See more images and video of the reflective installation below!
