Blooms: Strobe-Animated Sculptures, 2015
These 3-D printed sculptures, called blooms, are designed to animate when spun under a strobe light. The placement of the appendages is determined by the same method nature uses in pinecones and sunflowers. The rotation speed is synchronized to the strobe so that one flash occurs every time the sculpture turns 137.5º—the golden angle. If you count the number of spirals on any of these sculptures you will find that they are always Fibonacci numbers. For this video, rather than using a strobe, the camera was set to a very short shutter speed (1/4000 sec) in order to freeze the spinning sculpture. John Edmark is an inventor/designer/artist. He teaches design at Stanford University.
Izabelinie House 2, 2015
Just outside the polish capital of Warsaw, Marcin Tomaszewski of local architecture practice Reform has created a dwelling that appears to float amid its woodland setting. Planted between the trees, ‘Izabelin House’ serves as a country retreat for a single family, occupying its plot with a minimum of disturbance to the natural terrain.
Formed of two horizontally configured volumes, the home’s lower storey is clad with reflective paneling. Consequently, these mirrored surfaces appear as an extension of the forest floor, with opaque areas stacked above. Large apertures present sweeping views of the property’s surroundings, while the design also comprises an area of sheltered decking at ground level. via designboom.com

The Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum has recently exhibited the work of Dutch studio Drift : “Shylight”. It’s five kinetic suspensions of lights that mimics the organic movement of blooming flowers. The opening and closing of their “petals” depend on the darkness and the light.

Our protagonist asks ‘Have you any Jarlsberg’ his date replies ‘cheese is cheese’ and the future ramifications become apparent in a fantastical flash forward, showing that if you don’t insist on the best now, then your future is potentially at stake. Agency Try/Apt, Norway
