Amazing Street Art from Plastic Jesus

From the crowded urban streets of Los Angeles, California comes a street artist known as Plastic Jesus. He creates incredible and controversial art installations, such as a giant mouse-trap with credit cards as bait, a fake grave with flowers and a mock rifle positioned as a headstone for the 11,458 people killed during 2011 and 2012 with automatic weapons or a giant spilled can of Mountain Dew cordoned off as if it were toxic waste. He consistently creates public mixed-media pieces that point out the negative aspects of our culture into something thought provoking. The installations above are titled as followed:

  • Stop Making Stupid People Famous
  • Credit Trap
  • Toxic Hazard
  • No Kardashians
  • American Excess
  • RIP 11,458

This awesome indoor maze is an interactive art installation currently on exhibit at the National Building Museum in Washington, DC. It’s the work of the Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), a Copenhagen and New York-based, internationally active group of architects, designers, builders and thinkers.

The BIG Maze is a vast labyrinth of Baltic birch plywood covering an area of roughly 60 square feet. It’s full of twists and turns made of up walls of varying heights that are18 feet tall at their tallest points. Those walls slope in toward the center of the maze, which enables visitors to see more of it as they progress through it. Upon reaching the heart of the maze viewers are rewarded with a complete view of the wooden labyrinth that surrounds them.

"‘The concept is simple: as you travel deeper into a maze, your path typically becomes more convoluted. What if we invert this scenario and create a maze that brings clarity and visual understanding upon reaching the heart of the labyrinth?’, explained Bjarke Ingels."

This design also means that exiting the maze is much easier than solving it. The BIG Maze will be open to the public through September 1, 2014.

Click here for a time-lapse video of the maze’s construction.

Puzzle Facade

Public interactive installation by allows participants to control the colourful lighting of a square building with a Rubik Cube like device - video embedded below:

Puzzle Facade brings the experience of solving a Rubik’s cube to the urban space. It transforms the Ars Electronica’s media facade, into a giant Rubik’s cube, inviting passers-by to engage with an interactive experience that takes place in the city of Linz (Austria).

In Puzzle Facade the player interacts with the specially designed interface-cube. The interface-cube holds electronic components to keep track of rotation and orientation.

This data is sent via Bluetooth to a computer that runs the Puzzle Facade designed software. This software changes the lights and color of the large-scale Ars Electronica’s media facade in correlation to the handheld interface-cube.

Due to the nature of this building and its surroundings, the player is only able to see two sides at the same time. This factor increases the difficulty of solving the puzzle, but as the player is able to rotate and flip the interface-cube, it is not a blocking factor.

In a new project called “OMG, Who Stole My Ads?” French street artist Etienne Lavie makes it his mission to transform the ad space in Paris into an outdoor art gallery. He has been travelling around the city, snatching up posters and billboards, and replacing them with fine specimens of French art from an earlier era. If our senses have over-developed to the point where we need to be visually stimulated at all times outdoors, just to keep up continuity, then we might as well at least occasionally glimpse something that moves us—something we might elect to look at voluntarily. Lavie’s project gives that gift to a lucky subset of Parisian commuters.

Computer Orchestra is a crowdsourcing platform that allows users to create and conduct their own orchestra. They can choose to upload their own music or download samples to integrate into their formation. With a simple interface, they assign the chosen samples to each post. They can also arrange detection zones, that allow them to order the “musicians” to play, using various gestures. Once their orchestra is configured, they can direct it with the movements of their body.

"SKIN" Transforms Your Emotions Into Sound And Color Through Sweat Data
Harvest Works gallery in New York exhibited an installation by audiovisual artist, Claudia Robles, that gets under your skin… literally. SKIN is a project that measures gallery visitors’ skin moisture using a GSR (Galvanic Skin Response) interface and transforms that data into sound and images. Psychological states such as stress, nervousness, and even arousal become observable, external information. Be careful who you test it out around.

The first room in this exhibition was designed as an interactive installation and left completely black for visitors to etch images themselves. The artist created his own etchings and patterns on the walls and furniture in the second room. This project binds together the playful, analog, childish world with the professional, digital, adult one, preserving the emotions and naivety of childhood values.
By designer Itay Ohaly at Israel’s Design Museum Holon.
