“Breaking The Surface” is a collaboration between ctrl+N, Scandinavian Design Group, Kontur, Abida, and Intek for Lundin Norway. The installation is essentially a grid of plastic cyclinders that move up into the ceiling as people walk underneath it. The wave-like motions can be experienced from below, on the first floor, but also from above, on the second floor. Love to see this in person, watch the videos below.

Listen and Repeat by artist Rachel Knoll

Love this piece. “Listen and Repeat” is an installation by artist Rachel Knoll. A megaphone installed on a tree, on a mountain, in Washington reads out tweets that use the words “nobody listens”. The messages are announced, via a text to speech program, to an audience of trees.
