Retweet“Stained Glass Post-Pixelators” is a new project by Posterchild where he places Jesus post-pixelators figures over the HD advertising screen at the subway entrances in New York. These post-pixelators diffuse the light from the screens and turn the Jesus figures in something like animated paintings. Watch the video and everything becomes clear.

“The Clock Clock” by Humans Since 1982 is a digital clock made from 24 analogue ones. Those 24 aren’t real clocks anymore like you can see in the video. But still nice.
Here are 2 other similar clocks projects worth checking out: O’clock and Christaan Postma Clock.
Giorgio Biscaro’s inspiration to create the Atlas bench came by noticing that since many pubs and bars in Europe no longer allow smokers to smoke inside, they’re all outside on the street with nowhere to sit, although they can often be seen sitting on the front of parked cars. So the idea is to provide a bench for one or two people to sit on. The benches are well suited to be used outdoors, since they’re made from rotational moulded polyethylene.

“Syn Chron” is an installation designed by Carsten Nikolai back in 2004. He wanted to create an integral sculpture of light, sound and architecture. The crystal-shaped object has a translucent skin on which lasers beam animations insync to the sounds. You can also go inside the object to get the whole light, sound and space experience. Indeed it’s that big. Gestalten.TV has a video where Carsten Nikolai talks about his work, more precisely about grids and his book Grid Index. You can watch it here.
