For four months only HaltaDefinizione is offering an interactive gallery of 10 masterpieces photographed with their high-definition technology. Up to 1,000 photos are stitched together to create each work, allowing you to zoom in and examine centuries old paintings millimeter by millimeter. Ooh Paul Biro can use it to hunt for some latent Boiticelli thumbprints!

Marin Sawa’s Sculptural Algaeriums

October 1, 2010

Christopher Jobson

British architect and meteorologist Marin Sawa builds sculptures out of farmed algae and assorted chemistry equipment.

Algaerium is textile-inspired design for ‘cultivating’ and producing green energy in style. It creates a domesticated mode of algaculture for our urban lifestyles in the space of interior to exterior. This means it acts as aquariums for algae and the ‘living’ design serves as a new type of plants designed with a new characteristic to visualize photosynthesis through colour change.
