Fiona Banner Installs Fighter Planes at Tate Britain

November 14, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Some great shots of Fiona Banner‘s latest installation at Tate Britain. Fiona has suspended an enormous Sea Harrier nose-down from the ceiling just inches off the floor and polished an upside-down Sepecat Jaguar so visitors can see their reflection in it.

For Banner these objects represent the ‘opposite of language’, used when communication fails. In bringing body and machine into close proximity she explores the tension between the intellectual perception of the fighter plane and physical experience of the object.

Dentsu Vending Machine Grows 20,000 Heads of Lettuce a Year

Did the apocalypse ruin your crops this year? We’ve got you covered. Made in Japan by Dentsu the portable Chef’s Farm can harvest up to 60 heads of lettuce daily without a bit of sunlight. The idea is to provide locally-sourced vegetables to restaurants without the need for transportation. One thing remains unclear: how much water, electricity, and nutrients must be continually pumped into this $90,000 garden to produce such massive quantities of tasty tasty vegetation. Regardless, a pretty brilliant concept. (via treehugger)

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!
