Hello World. A sign built from 5,000 rocker switches.

June 17, 2011

Christopher Jobson

The Untitled (Hello World) sign by Valentin Ruhry is an enormous grid of 5,000 orange rocker switches that illuminate when switched on. The piece is currently on display as part of the Fünf Räume (five rooms) exhibition at the Austrian Cultural Forum NYC through September 5. I can only hope they might let you flick a few of these awesomely tactile switches. (via triangulation)

Ivan Puig’s glass bottle mandalas played with robotic arms

April 6, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Two light and sound installations in one day? Yes, friends. These two mesmerizing water-filled glass bottle mandalas were built by Mexican artist Ivan Puig. Robotic arms in the center of each mandala rotate and hit each bottle in succession to create a cyclical series of echoing notes. If you read a lot of art blogs you’ve probably tun into Puig’s submerged VW sedan sculpture.

A new video from Denmark-based Lasse Andersen and Rune Brink of Dark Matters uses lights, string, and other tricks to simulate computer special effects. I absolutely love this.
