Interior Land Art: Riverbed Really Runs Through this Museum

Art rarely gets as gritty and real as this, particularly in a gallery, with rocks, earth and water running through simple doors, between white-walled rooms and under uniform interior lighting.

Olafur Eliasson, a Danish and Icelandic artist, created Riverbed as one of a series of installations for the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark, challenging visitors to experience both museums and landscapes in new ways.

Meanwhile, the spaces become both intimate and perhaps uncomfortable as the earthwork slopes upward into ultimately-inaccessible areas.

The artist explains: “What I’m interested in with my work at the Louisiana isn’t really that you experience an object or an artwork. I am interested in how you connect this landscape to the rest of the world and ultimately, how you experience yourself within it.”

Traditional floor tiles slowly give way to a rugged landscape of stones and dirt, leading up to the sides of a real river inexplicably traversing the gallery interior.

Aside from other references, the work is a nod to the sculpture garden that used to sit in the same spaces where this section of interior galleries now stands.

“When we’re in our familiar surroundings, in our circle of family and friends, our senses are very finely tuned, but the further away we get from the local context, the cruder the sensing becomes. I wonder if our focus on the atmospheric can give us a relationship with something that is very abstract and far away.” (Images by Anders Sune Berg)

Project Wing: Google Testing Drone Delivery Service

Google sees Amazon’s Prime Air drone delivery service and raises it with the enhanced aesthetics of its own Project Wing, a series of autonomous aerial vehicles currently being tested. In development for the past two years and a secret until this week, Project Wing was initially conceived as a way to deliver emergency aid like defibrillator kits to people in remote places or disaster areas.

Project Wing: Google Testing Drone Delivery Service

Now that the prototype vehicles have been tested (in Australia, which is far more lax about the use of drones than the United States,) it seems that they could be used to deliver goods to customers in a similar way to Amazon Prime Air, as well.

“As part of our research, we built a vehicle and traveled to Queensland, Australia for some test flights,” says Google of the project. “There, we successfully delivered a first aid kit, candy bars, dog treats, and water to a couple of Australian farmers.”

Developed by the company’s research arm, Google X, the Project Wing drones have a wingspan of about 4.9 feet and a total weight capacity of 22 pounds, the bulk of which is taken up by the drone itself at 18.7 pounds. It doesn’t need a runway to take off or land, and can hold its position hovering in one spot.

Looking like tiny blunt airplanes, the drones are at least a visual improvement over Amazon’s design, which was mocked for resembling a flying barbecue grill.

Scorpion Concept Excavator is a design proposal for JCB, it’s a project submitted for “Project 120” design contest held by JCB. The brief was simple, each contestant had to design an innovative JCB Digger for the year of 2073.

In 2073, we need a new breed of earth moving machinery. Inspired by scorpion, Arpan Jyoti Mahanta, an industrial designer, has come up with a remote-controlled concept excavator to fit this future role. It’s powered by 750 bhp diesel, yeah, pretty massive yet still efficient, it sends power to all those all-terrain wheels through an electric drive transmission, and those arms via hydraulic servo motors.

Designer : Arpan Jyoti Mahanta

The integrated simple user interface simplifies the interaction between the product and user. It only requires a small amount of water to create a cloud of fine particles of steam electrostatiscally charged, these particles come out through the pores of metal surface, wrapping and permeating all the fibers. This washing ball flows between clothes through vibration and pluses that control movements, it scrubs and shakes, it detects dirt and removes them. The metallic surface acts as magnet, it attracts dirt particles and sucks them to the core of the sphere. Finally, Luna blows hot air to eliminate any residual damp left in the fibers.

Cyclonic Pictures: Long Exposures Spin Art from Light & Air

The shots seem impossibly composed, consisting of light that arcs and twists like a tornado in the night skies, but the process of creating them is much simpler than you might first imagine.

Martin Kimbell twirls, tosses and hurls LED sticks then uses long-exposure techniques to capture the twisting, turning and arcing patterns that result from each throw.

Some of the loops look like natural phenomena, swirling dust, stormy cyclones or campfire smoke, for instance, except spun from bright and colorful lights instead of organic materials. Others trajectories are simpler and captured in black-and-white instead.

Sea Fort for Sale: Buy a Massive Maritime Mansion in Britain

Built in the 1860s and now on sale for half a million pounds (under $1,000,000) , it is hard to beat what this sea fort offers by way of views, a prestigious address (No 1 Thames) and amazing location (a short commute by speedboat from London).

The massive fortified structure (featuring 15-foot-thick walls) can be accessed by boat or walked to when the tide is low, albeit a long and muddy way to go. A BBC interview (screenshots above and below) shows both the problems and potential of this amazing piece of real estate – there are precedents, too, for converting old British army and sea forts as well as harbor bases.

The current owner purchased the property from the Crown Estate, which is to say he approach the “Lord High Admiral for Her Most Excellency Majesty Queen Elizabeth”, made an offer and had it accepted.

However, the buyer-turned-seller, himself a London resident, never found the time or funds to refurbish the place, so it remains in a state of partial decay – a would-be purchaser should expect a significant outlay for renovating the building’s exterior and interior alike.

Still, for someone with a fortune as well as a vision, it is hard to imagine a neater place to escape from city life. The firm WT Architecture has already taken a stab at conceptual designs for rehabilitating to structure (renderings shown above and below). As their drawings illustrate, there is a rich variety in terms of materials, shapes and spaces to work with, including a cavernous central stone circle with a tall wood-and-concrete watchtower and an adjacent rectangular brick structure (that could be used for guests).

As BldgBlog notes, “At first glance, it’s an amazing offshore castle, a fairy tale artificial island of 19th-century military Romanticism roughly an hour’s boat ride east of London. But don’t jump in too quickly, lest you overlook the ruinous state of the place: it needs almost literally everything, from plumbing to electricity, glass windows to the most thorough cleaning you could imagine, having been open to the oceanic elements for decades”

Renault Sport R.S. 01 Racing Car Features Optimum Aerodynamic Downforce

Renault Sport R.S. 01 Racing Car Features Optimum Aerodynamic Downforce

The air is sucked in and channeled by the stem of the chassis through the center of the grille towards the 2 water coolers. This then expelled via the extractors located on the hood. Thus, any negative pressure created through the process increases downforce at the front of the car. Even that large blade of the lower splitter and the stepped flat bottom also contribute to aerodynamic at the front. There are 2 fins on the side of the bumper that create vortices, they help limiting the turbulence of the rotating wheels.

This extraordinary design reflects Renault’s passion for motor sports. It aims to achieve the next level of performance to deliver the thrill for both driver and public.
