I love Zimoun! I’ve posted the Swiss artist’s work several times now (see them all here), but this recent work is by far his most ambitious. He has ditched the cardboard boxes for the time being and installed his first-ever permanent work inside of a giant tank in Dottikon, Switzerland. 329 cotton balls attached to little motors bounce endlessly inside the space.

Watch the video below! My favourite part is when it cuts to the silence outside. I really want to visit this in person one day. Who wants to join me?

SAMBRE (work in progress)

Since January of this year 50 of the world’s most prominent street artists have left their mark on Les Bains, a rundown nightclub in Paris.

After unsuccessfully trying to save the building, owner Jean-Pierre Marois and gallery owner Magda Danysz began inviting artists like Sambre, Futura, and Space Invader to make work in the space. Slowly the place has been filled with art.

Next week renovations on the building will commence, and all the incredible work will be destroyed. I’ve included my favourite pieces from Les Bains below!
