"The series explores a significant part of South Africa’s history; the mining of natural resources such as copper, gold, and diamonds, and the effect this has had on the land over time. In ‘Gold’, Marsh uses CGI to create a scale model of the total amount of gold extracted from each of the seven Witwatersrand Basin goldfields. For context, the Witwatersrand Basin is a geological formation responsible for almost half the world’s gold reserves. Marsh’s enormous gold spheres are juxtaposed against the land from which the gold is produced. The result is a poignant series of photographic images that speak loudly about our capitalistic demand for gold." via iGNANT
It's been a while since our last post in "Cars" flow and we really like to keep it clean for beautiful examples of automotive industry. Here is another eye-catching sample worth for being outside, near the beach.
Marking the 60th anniversary since the unveiling of the first special edition car based on the model 500 - the 500 Jolly, known as "Spiaggina," Fiat showcased their new limited edition of the latest Fiat 500. Called the Fiat 500 Spiaggina ’58, the new model is limited to 1958 units. A number which is an homage to the year Fiat showcased the original 500 Jolly, a car adored by rich and famous of the time.
The changes Garage Italia made to the Fiat 500C in an effort to convert the car into a true Spiaggina are, frankly, astounding. The job was so work-intense and perilous that Garage Italia partnered with famed Pininfarina to bring the job to a close. With their expertise in the creation of show cars, Pininfarina and Garage Italia came up with a 500 featuring a lowered windscreen, a rollover bar instead of a roof and only two seats.

"It's been exactly 5 years since I created experimental video «Pacific Light» (2013), where I first mixed oil, water and ink together in a bright dance of colors. Since then, I’ve developed my style by experimenting with graphics and adding new ingredients. I used metallic paints in the projects "O D Y S S E Y" (2015) and "Sweet Dreams" (2016), and worked with neon colors in "NEON 4K" (2016)."

After another campaign of "Trash Isles" took attention and more over the Gran Prix at Cannes last year, this new striking ad from Greenpeace definitely should stick harder in the hearts of many. If not, than what else?
This stark series of ads Greenpeace Canada created illustrate just how obviously harmful plastic straws are to aquatic animals. Created by Rethink in Toronto, the ads are hard to swallow yet were designed to prompt businesses to reconsider the use of straws.
A fish, turtle and bird are inside a drink, with a straw coming out of their mouths. “Don’t suck the life from our oceans” reads each ad.
Although the campaign singles out straws as harmful, Greenpeace Canada looks to draw attention to the ill effects of throwaway plastic in general, including lids and cups.

Talented guys from Timelab Pro broke our heart again (previously) with a new drone scenery of the city we love and live in - Saint Petersburg. For sure, White Nights season 2018 (late June - mid July, yes, sun does not roll down literally) was the best with the enormous weather, millions of tourists and FIFA fans, festivals, open-airs, restaurant streets, Crimson Sails Proms and magnificent city that took a heart of each person being here, even living for ages like us.
The Coralarium is a 200-ton tidal building filled with sculptures, creating a partially submerged gallery in the Maldives.
British sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor has once again left his mark on the environment with a stunning new installation. Created for the Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi, Coralarium is a semi-submerged art gallery filled with nearly 30 sculptures that will act as a habitat for coral and other marine species (via MyModernMet)
The Sculpture Coralarium is situated in the centre of the largest developed coral lagoon in the Maldives, on the island resort of Fairmont Sirru Fen Fushi. The artwork by Jason deCaires Taylor is a semi-submerged tidal gallery space that exhibits a series of sculptural artworks on the skyline, inter-tidal waterline and seabed. As world's first semi submerged tidal Art Gallery it is cube shaped, six metres tall, with its front façade submerged up to median tide of three metres. The design of the walls is based on natural coral structures and is porous to allow the tides, current and marine life to pass through and the structure to “breathe” within its location
We are creating a New Visual Culture. We are the future.
We are the creators of a new visual culture. We are the future.
The mural «Д ¥ Ā Л И З М» (Dualism) has appeared on the inner wall of the WYNWOOD design hotel at the very heart of St. Petersburg. The artist’s lecture will take a place there on August 2, 2018.
Lampas’s work «Д ¥ Ā Л И З М» is a Manifesto, dedicated to the duality of the perception of contemporary art. Its text in two languages, helping the viewer to explore both differences between alphabets and cultural references in the forms of letters, and combining them into the context of calligraphy of the future. Dualism also reflects in the choice of color: the left part of the work is closer to the original range of the facade, while the right part is more contrast. Together they form the complete picture. The text itself is a Manifesto of Millennials with the values of past generations, made by borrowing the forms of letters from western and eastern, ancient and modern calligraphy. «Д ¥ Ā Л И З М» is the largest mural by Pokras Lampas in St.Petersburg — it covers an area of more than 250 square meters.
One of the most brightest representatives of contemporary calligraphy, the founder of a new artistic movement — Calligrafuturism – Pokras Lampas combines work on art projects around the world with exhibitions, street art performances and festivals. He creates large-scale compositions in the urban environment and interior, constantly experimenting with the forms and possibilities of fonts. In recent years Pokras Lampas was a member of the street art

Saint-Petersburg-based designer Yaroslav Misonzhnikov shares his recent work - nixie-tube clocks on marble and wood platforms commissioned by Past Indicator brand.
All of their clocks have nixie tubes, that were popular in the USSR era. While working on the new design of the clock, Yaroslav was inspired by an architectural element — diamond-pointed rustication. The clock, that was named Saturn-5 is made of natural marble and is serially manufactured.

The Earth was designed as per the Theory of Pluralism: Pluriverse.
The end results of the design are controversial.
It may well be that humanity has never witnessed and starred in such rapid transformation, development and progress in all its history. The struggle against nature has evolved into a fight against oneself and with each other. The questions, the inquiries and the issues have transformed.
Now we talk about totally different things. Not just only about technology, industry 4.0, artificial intelligence, new professions or new planets... But about our extinguishing free will. And in fact, about whether we even ever had free will. About reality and new realities. In the end, everything is data. And it is possible to calculate the process of smart data.
Pluriverse is a story that observes innovations throughout the history of humans. The character of the story delivers this process in a cause and effect situation. And eventually, questions reality as a non-human entity.
Completed in 28 days, Pluriverse was displayed during the opening of Technology Summit and
the 6 minute story was told using real time motion capture technology.
