Too cool - The exhibition 'A world without petrol' transforms forty gasoline pumps into useful and playful items including a London telephone box, a garden trellis, water fountain, and coffee machine, making light of the idea of reinvention. Comissioned by Nissan, you can actually see all all forty of the pumps at the 'zero petrol' exhibition website, where there is also a voting competition through june 18th, 2012 to win one of the transformed pumps. Check it out!
Captured: An Homage to Light and Air is Nils and Sven Völker’s recent installation, shown at the MADE Space in Berlin. The installation is a collaboration between the brothers. It involves a combination of four walls with 304 framed graphic pages that then surround a field of 252 inflatable silver cushion-like air bags. The bags were programmed to create sequences according to chapters of Sven's “books on wall”. There's a video that you can check out here to watch the actual process - pretty cool, right?
David Letellier created this sound installation for a chapel in Caen, France. Caten is a levitating sculpture, based in kinetics, made out of 300 fine wires suspended from two ropes, hoping to showcase the evolution of sound composition. Check it out.

She first enlarges each correspondence onto a large piece of paper, then carefully cuts the negative space out to preserve the integrity of the letter. Check it out.
