quantumofpeace1 quantumofpeace2

“Miara Pokoju” or “Quantum of Peace” is a kinetic installation by new media design group, panGenerator. On display at Poland’s Warsaw Rising Museum, the visually striking “infosculpture” uses thousands of bullet shells, pneumatic actuators, neodimium magnets, and industrial-grade transmission belts. The falling bullet casings form sets of numbers that relate to actual statistics from the 1944 Warsaw Uprising, an event which marked the city’s revolt against Nazis occupation and subsequent invasion by the Soviets.

Abandoned Detroit Duplex Filled with 36,000 Flowers

Waud11

Floral designer Lisa Waud bought an abandoned house in Detroit, Michigan for $250 and, with the help of 3 dozen fellow florists, replaced the garbage that once filled it with 36,000 flowers.

The project took a year to plan but was only on display for three days. Aside from the artistic appeal, the temporary installation was part of a broader desire to raise awareness around issues of sustainability and the repurposing of neglected properties in the area. See more images below!

Giant Art Labyrinth

Schneider6

“The Peristal Singum” is a large-scale installation by German artist, Tim Henrik Schneider. The interactive project spans ten different chambers that visitors must walk, climb, and crouch through. Of course, the physical challenges of navigating the space are entirely intentional.

Mimicking the human digestive system, “Peristal Singum” is a response to how quickly (and dismissively) art tends to be consumed. According to Schneider, “the physical experience of art is the only way people will start to self-reflect.” The labyrinthine layout is meant to force people to take their time and really engage with the art that surrounds them.

The installation opens at the Aus Berlin Festival in Tilburg on November 28th. See below for images from the original Berlin show.

debombourg7

Paris-based artist Baptiste Debombourg’s “Stellar” is, basically, 1200 chairs arranged to look like a rollercoaster. But what makes the installation even more hilarious is that it’s on display in Place du Bouffay, an area populated with cafés with chairs of the same design (and from which Debombourg drew his inspiration). See more images below!
