The Luminarie De Cagna is an imposing cathedral-like structure that was recently on display at the 2012 Light Festival in Ghent, Belgium. The festival was host to almost 30 exhibitions including plenty of 3D projection mapping, fields of luminous flowers, and a glowing phone booth aquarium, however with 55,000 LEDs and towering 28 meters high the Luminarie De Cagna seems to have stolen the show.

How fun is this? The marketing team behind the movie Chronicle built three RC planes in the shape of human beings and flew them around New York City to create the illusion of superheroes zooming around iconic landmarks. Say what you will about this being a viral marketing ploy, I would much rather watch this than a 60-second trailer on TV. Well done. And also, I want one. (via gizmodo)

An Alaskan Electric Violinist Rocks the Streets of Spokane

An Alaskan Electric Violinist Rocks the Streets of Spokane violins video art

This is a fantastic clip of Anchorage-based violinist Bryson Andres playing his sampled and looped version of OneRepublic’s Secrets on the streets of Spokane, Washington. As somebody who played violin for close to nine years I’m in awe in what Andres has accomplished in just eight … I had difficulty keeping my instrument in tune, let alone, y’know, being able to produce things that sounded like music.

These are just a few of many wonderful pieces by Italian sculptor Matteo Pugliese who lives and works in Milan. His bronze sculptures of men, often made from multiple components, appear to be trapped in the vertical space of gallery walls. My Star Wars-addled brain is reminded of Hans Solo encased in carbonite, though I find these aesthetically much more pleasing. (via job’s wife)
