In a brief moment, your idea can appear complete and tangible.Then you start to concretize the idea, attempting to word it or build it, but this very act of realization will inevitably distort it.
We wish to freeze that very moment, in which an idea appears complete and tangible in all its simplicity.Bubble embodies this very wish of freezing the brief moment. A moment is such a short and abstract period in time, and because it lacks the substance to be defined, a moment is fragile.
The act of freezing the moment is then for us related to preserving the fragile.
And what is more fragile than a bubble?A bubble is a thin film of water floating in the air.
Its visual appearance is a transparent and light form covered with fluctuating colors that never quite settle. Only defined by a tenuous membrane, the bubble is easily broken, and often, it lasts only for a few seconds before it bursts and disappears.
Bubble will be a bubble that will float freely in space. It is set to create the friction between the anxious expectation that it may burst any second, as bubbles usually do, and the realization that it will not.In freezing the moment, Bubble thus embodies the potential of capturing the dream of the idea, complete and tangible.And it lasts.reblog
Different lighting can completely change the look and feel of a room, but this incredible chandelier from Hilden & Diaz will take you straight to the jungle with just one click! Created by Thyra Hilden and Pio Diaz, “Forms of Nature” chandelier is a beautifully designed bundle of white tangled branches, casting shadows on the walls that look like forest trees. As the light bulb is placed in the center of the chandelier, it projects a 360 degree shadow formation on every wall and the ceiling.
„The shadows engulf the room and transform the walls into unruly shadows of branches, bushes and gnarled trees. Mirrorings are thrown out upon the walls and ceilings and provide weak Rorschach-like hints of faces, life and flow of consciousness. Diming the lights transforms the installation and one senses a weak fire burning deep in the center of the forest,“ describe Hilden and Diaz.
There’s seems to be already a line waiting for this concept model to be put into production, what about you?
The Floating Temple: How to Lift a Seven Million Pound, 112-year-old Building
“Something’s up in Provo, Utah and it weighs around seven million pounds. It’s the 112-year-old exterior of the Provo Tabernacle that was severely damaged in a 2010 fire but has since been saved by the LDS church so it can be converted into a temple. Engineers first gutted the damaged interior and then supported the exterior walls with special scaffolding as they dug down to create space for a two story basement, so in actuality the building hasn’t even moved. The entire structure is now on stilts some 40 feet in the air and from some angles appears to be floating above ground, such as in the first photograph above provided by Brian Hansen.”
