Tuft Pula

Suspended in a church in Croatia this sculpture designed by Numen is primarily made from just wire, tape and carpet. This organic looking piece of art invite viewers to crawl in and explore it. 
'After the initial caution, the user starts perceiving the functional aspect of the installation, utilizing the softness and sound isolation of the installation and using it as an inward facing collective sofa.'

Woven Photos

Experimentation with weaving two similar but not identical randomly together.

On first glance at these photos I thought that they were some nice pretty pictures that NASA had taken of various planets and moons but was however surprised to find out, and I'm sure you will be too, that they are in fact photos of bottoms of saucepans and frying pans. With the handles photoshopped out and contrasts played around with, scratches, dents and burn marks form craters and scars on the "planets" surface. By Christopher Jonassen.

Walking Roller Coaster

From a distance one would assume that this structure is just your average roller coaster on top of a hill in Germany... however upon further inspection one would realise that it is in fact a walking roller coaster! 
A staircase winds round the structure, allowing people to follow its curves to a 45 meter high climax providing spectacular views of the surrounding landscape. 
Designed by artists Heike Mutter and Ulrich Genth they say that Tiger and Turtle "refers with its immanent dialectic of speed and deadlock to the situation of change in the region and its turn towards renaturation and restructuring." 
Which is fair enough, but I like it just for being an amazing piece of architectural sculpture that you can interact with!

Bird House

A hotel in San Francisco is the canvas for this original piece of art/architectural installation work. Designed by architect Jenny Chapman and artist Mark Reigelman, this small wooden box is suspended from the side of the building imitating a bird box. Although you can't actually access the space in the box, a solar power light inside of it gives the impression that some one is home.

Woodland Dwellings

How excited would you be if you were walking in the woods and stumbled across these "Woodland Dwellings". Like the perfect forest hideaway inside a child's head these blend into their surroundings and are crying out to be explored. By Ellie Davies and created in the New Forest.
