As part of the New Media Night Festival last month at Moscow’s Nikola-Lenivets Art Park, one of the most unusual video-mapping projects we’ve seen took place against the backdrop of Nikolay Polissky’s (previously) brain-like Universe Mind structure. The twisting, serpentine building has been used for years as a centerpiece to many events at the art park which now boasts a collection of almost 30 architecturally-influenced artworks, including a 170-foot trampoline installed in the middle of a forest.

For this year’s New Media Night Festival, media design studio Radugadesign was comissioned to set ‘Universe Mind’ in motion with this 8-minute video projection. If you’d like to get a feel for what it’s like to step inside the building under normal circumstances, check out this interactive 360° panorama. (via The Creator’s Project)

It’s been over a year since we last checked in with video artist Erdal Inci (previously) who clones multiple recordings of himself moving through public spaces resulting in these bizarre looping performances. Inci often carries lights or other objects which lend a sense of choreography to each video, and at times the exposure eliminates him from the scene or makes him appear shadowlike in the background. Here are a few of our favorites over the last few months but you can see more on his website and at a higher resolution on Vimeo. (via iGNANT)

Founded in 1879 in Ishikawa, Japan, Kutani Choemon have been creating handmade and hand-painted pottery for the better part of 130 years, and while the history shows in the quality of their work, the subject matter is a bit more contemporary. Skateboarders, surfers, and drummers rendered in blue Kutani color glazes adorn a wide variety of their tableware and tea ceremony utensils, bringing a quirky and modern vibe to a traditionally conservative craft. You can see more over in the Kutani Choemon shop. (via Designers Go to Heaven)

Timelapse of Dormant ‘Rose of Jericho’ Plants Exploding to Life After Exposure to Water

The Rose of Jericho (Selaginella lepidophylla) is a species of desert moss that has the amazing ability to ‘resurrect’ itself after bouts of extreme dehydration lasting months or even years. After just a few hours of exposure to moisture the plants burst to life, uncurling from a tight ball of dry leaves to a green flower-like shape. Videographer Sean Steininger shot this timelapse of several plants as he exposed them to water. (via Cause, Science!)

Update: Apparently a few places sell these plants online.

Product designer Hilla Shamia has developed a novel way to meld poured aluminum with irregularly shaped wood pieces to create sleek tables and benches. The process preserves that natural form of the tree trunk while still allowing the molten aluminum to flow into the crevices of the wood, slightly burning the area where the two materials meet. These remind me somewhat of Greg Klassen’s glass tables from last month here on Colossal. You can see more of Shamia’s work on her website. (via The Fox is Black)

Belgian street artist ROA (previously) is currently in Tunisia along with 150 other participating artists for Galerie Itinerrance’s Djerbahood open air museum project in Djerba, Tunisia. The artist cleverly took advantage of the many domed buildings in the city for several of his monochromatic spray paint murals that spread across multiple surfaces. You can see more recent pieces on the Djerbahood website. (via Savage Habit, Street Art News)
