BMW Kinetic Sculpture by Joachim Sauter
“714 metal spheres are suspended from the ceiling on thin steel wires and animated with a help of mechanics, electronics and code”
Art installation merges gardening and technology, creating Arduino-powered frames with sensors for plants to be monitored, and interacted with via smartphone app. From the project’s Kickstarter page:
We’re creating a space where a community who loves architecture, technology and plants can meet. Our mission is to integrate these disciplines into a new paradigm that changes the way we live and interact with nature. We believe that interacting with plants will improve our lives.
Plant-in City taps into the natural systems that foster plant life to give the plants themselves a voice. This revolutionary planter system contains built-in sensors that are activated by sun exposure, changes in soil moisture, humidity, temperature, and other natural cycles. Once activated, these sensors translate the environmental data into sounds or visuals, creating an imaginary vibrant wilderness.

Perspective Illusions by Felice Varini
Des illusions de l’artiste suisse Felice Varini. Un artiste qui depuis 1979 utilise la technique du trompe l’œil. Que l’on nomme également anamorphose, et qui exige du spectateur d’occuper un point de vue spécifique afin de reconstituer l’image.
