Visitors to Singapore now have another reason to linger at its world-class airport (named best in the world more than once). Kinetic Rain, created by German creative studio ART+COM, is the new eye-catching icon of the recently revamped Changi Airport Terminal One. It is made out of 1,216 bronze rain droplets that transform into multiple shapes in elegant, synchronised motion. Thanks to Jin Ping for highlighting this interesting piece of local work. Check out the video below and also the making of video here.
Thanks to Iona for pointing us to this beautiful work for Perrier-Jouët’s Belle Epoque Special Floral Edition champagne. Continuing the handcrafted theme and following their paper cut flower work of last year, they have invited Japanese floral artist Makoto Azuma to re-interpret the iconic Belle Epoque champagne, creating a floral installation and bottle design. The visual language on the website and the video showing the making of the floral installation and how the work translates onto pack shows how a great idea can be used elegantly, and in a modern stylish way across a range of touchpoints. Here are some screengrabs but you can see the video on the Perrier-Jouët website.
For the launch of TNT’s new crime show Perception, the network worked with physical-digital interactive New York agency Breakfast to create this 23 x 12 foot display made up of 44,000 electromagnetic dots. The dots, black on one side and white on the other, flip to create images which mimic the real-time movement of pedestrians, creating a cool silouhette on screen. The images interact with text on the screen and sounds from the board to create an immersive, interactive experience. This was found via Engadget, by Jian’An.
Ever wondered what your skin tone would look like as a Pantone swatch? Now you can find out with Humanae, a compilation of human skin tones from around the world. The project, by Brazilian photographer Angelica Dass, aims to record and catalog all possible human skin tones. “The aim of [Dass's] photographic work is to achieve the public’s direct involvement in photography as a whole concept, as a non-passive communication between people.” Thanks Valerie for contributing this.
I loved this bonkers and rather fabulous crocheted alligator playground, created by famous yarn-bomb-artist Olek in Sao Paolo. It took weeks for Olek and her team of helpers to cover the playground, which was designed by Márcia Maria Benevento, and was recently made for the SESC Art Show 2012. Found via Flavorwire.
