German street artist EVOL has constructed this urban “X” in a field outside of Hamburg as part of the upcoming MS Dockville music and art festival. The structure took eight days to dig and construct and you can see an annotated photo series showing the process here. How unbelievably fun is this? Although I’m sure eight days is enough work, I can’t help but imagine what it would be like to scale this even larger into an entire network of entrenched skyscrapers. (via unurth)
If I was in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey and needed a super minimalist calendar and planner to tack up inside my spacecraft en route to Jupiter, I would probably bring along the Wandkalender & Wandplaner 2011 by Populäre Produkte (for sale here). The calendar and planner come with 100 sticky notes to mark the day when your buddies are supposed to be woken from cryogenic hibernation, or when it’s time to pay the heating bill. One side in German, the other in English. (via design milk).
Another great video short today by Feedmee Design, shot as an intro for the German film competition kurzundschön (Short & Nice). Another ongoing Colossal theme in this video: my unabashed love for weightlessness in film. (via fubiz)
