Made of Imagination / Vintage suitcase guitars by Jeff Conley

Made of Imagination / Jeff Conley
Love this submission to our project from Jeff Conley!

This song below is called “For Gibby” for his stolen guitar:

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.
