envisioned as an archipelago of interconnected halo-like masses, the ‘epiphyte chamber’ by canadian studio PBAI philip beesley architect inc. mimics human sensations through subtle, coordinated movements. conceived as an ‘epiphyte’, an aerial plant species that can grow without the support of soil, the immersive sculpture explores artificial intelligence, digital fabrication and interactive technologies to create a near-living environment. across each floating island, densely interwoven structures and delicate canopies made of thousands of lightweight components are drawn together in harmonious breathing and whispers. hovering fabric helps to frame the suspended pieces, lined with bulging, fluid-filled vessels and glands. the faunal groups contain metabolisms with chemicals, which move in response to slow reactions.

You can find here other awesome projects from the Heatherwick Studio.

Check out the video to see how painting directly on people or objects can trick your eye. Photoshop and great reproduction skills aren’t always needed to create an authentic painting. Or a picture of the painting, for that matter.

Beautiful jewelry design and great marketing idea. 

These necklaces are inspired by the molecules of caffeine, LSD, nicotine and others alike, and I bet that they wouldn’t look so appealing if they were advertised as presenting ‘boring’ substances such as milk or paracetamol.

ART: Surreal Sculptures by Bruno Catalano
