Collages by London-based artist Rosanna Webster.
Cocoon is a 360 degree x 220 degree immersive video installation and the latest from London-based animation studio, Factory Fifteen. Exhibited at the SAT Immersion Experience Symposium back in May, Cocoon represents the first attempt at 360 degree film making. In the video below, participants are placed inside a transformative, spherical space that eventually peels away.

Last month we launched a project to build a sculpture in Barcelona, at the IAM Festival, using pencils mailed in from all over the world. We collaborated with Vancouver-based studio Tangible Interaction to 3D-print special connectors that would allow us to connect the pencils together in a variety of ways. It was a pretty ambitious project considering we only had a few weeks to collect pencils and it would only work if we had lots.
You guys totally came through! All in all we had well over 1,000 pencils from all over the place: North and South America, Asia, Europe, Australia, India, and Sri Lanka! Thank you all for making our project in Barcelona a success! If you sent us a pencil you can now say that you have exhibited at the Design Museum of Barcelona, that’s pretty cool!
Here is a quick time lapse of people at the event building the sculpture with your pencils and a gallery of all the people who emailed in a photo of themselves. These photos represent a small fraction of all the people who took part in the project but I think it still beautifully represents the way the Internet can used to create an artwork using bits and pieces from all different countries.
Thank you everyone! Gallery of “pencil people” below!
