One Hundred and Eight by Nils Völker

One Hundred and Eight is an interactive installation created by Nils Völker where garbage bags are selectively inflated and deflated by two cooling fans.

“One program is running on an Arduino mounted to the lower side taking control of a set of shift registers that trigger the relays individually. A camera is mounted to the ceiling above and connected to a computer on which a second program (Processing) is running. The program registers and tracks movement via the camera and sends the necessary information via a serial connection to the microcontroller.”

The Silent Evolution by Jason deCaires Taylor

Artist Jason deCaires Taylor just recently completed an incredible piece of art, The Silent Evolution. Situated 9 meters under water off the coast of Isla de Mujeres in Mexico, the piece consists of 400 life-size figures.  This was no quick or cheap task, the work took “18 months, 120 tons of cement, sand, and gravel; 3,800m of fiberglass; 400kg of silicone; 8,000 miles of red tape; 120 hours working underwater; and $250,000.” You may remember his Grenada work we told you about back in 2007.

World’s Biggest Jesus

Portion control

Jessica Hlavac uses clay, pastels and varnish to create tiny meals able to fit on objects such as the face of a penny, or the tip of a knife. It’s pretty crazy, and the details alone are remarkable.  Watch a pretty rad video of the making of one such meal after the jump.
