Fischli/ Weiss: Rock on top of another Rock

Charles sent me this video a few weeks ago and its interesting in the technical principles that it demonstrates as well as how ARUP used 3d scanning to figure out a structural solution for this artwork: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_v0CO7p7eT4&feature=youtu.be Could be useful for Sam’s project in terms of stacking objects on top of one another to form a totem/ monument?

For everyone: a different type of museum or display made from CAKE – these interiors put that weird shellac-ed cake in the City Reliquary to shame: http://www.dazeddigital.com/artsandculture/article/30304/1/meet-the-artist-making-massive-installations-out-of-cake Janie – check out this building in Auroville, Pondicherry – water runs along the walls of the building and there are two crystals embedded within the building where rays…

Merry Cemetery video

Inez – thought this might be interesting for you since it relates to the shrine you created yesterday and a death positive attitude. It might be interesting for everyone since it talks about redesigning the cemetery as a new form of museum. Enjoy! https://www.facebook.com/atlasobscura/videos/10153989551167728/   I also found these two links interesting after watching the…

Reference for Cris: Making the impossible possible

Someone sent me this link to a programme on BBC 4 where Sir Roger Penrose discusses MC Escher’s drawings as an inspiration to construct impossible geometries in reality. Thought it might be helpful for you to think about not just hinging but also alignment, viewing angles, planes of symmetry and points of converging to infinity: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b06csx20/secret-knowledge-the-art-of-the-impossible-mc-escher-and-me…
