Tel Aviv Museum of Art

On our last day in Israel we had a tour of the newly opened Herta and Paul Amir Building at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. It was designed by architecture firm Preston Scott Cohen, and it is astonishing.

We were given our tour while the gallery was closed (star treatment!) so there were a few people cleaning and I thought it was hilarious that this one guy rested his broom right on the sculpture! (I hope this doesn’t get him in any trouble, he was doing a great job!)

Anyways, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art is a must-see if you ever get the chance to go to Israel!

Inflatable Geometric Dome Explores the Transformative Nature of Colour

Pneuhaus1

“Fabric Prism” by art collective Pneuhaus (aka Matt Muller, Augie Lehrecke and Levi Bedall) is an interactive installation made from an inflatable, light-sensitive membrane of their own design. Constructed earlier this month as part of PVDFest 2016 in Providence, Rhode Island, the boldly coloured fabrics on the exterior of the geometric dome translate into more subtle shades inside, depending on the time and brightness of the day. More images below.
