    Reservoir: A Dazzling Rainwater Collecting Installation

    Situated in a clearing within an Italian forest, the installation from John Grade, Reservoir, appears like a chandelier glistening among the pine trees. Reservoir is featured in the Arte Sella Sculpture Park in Borgo Valsugana and is made up of five thousand clear droplets each of which is delicately attached to translucent nets, supported by tree trunks. On designing Reservoir, John Grade studied the Park’s ecosystem, carefully planning the installation in harmony with the surrounding landscape. “I became most interested in the way rain falls through this grove of trees, the canopy delaying the droplet’s journey to the ground as well as how quiet and sheltered the forest was during…

    Dutch artists paint mural bookcase on an apartment building

    There are still those who think that painting a mural on building walls is an act of vandalism when, it may be, just the opposite, a way to educate and brighten the lives of all the residents of a city. The murals are part of the whole world of street art and the urban interventions that fascinate me; they embellish the gray urban landscape and create impressive optical effects. The art of the Dutch artist Jan Is De Man has a clear objective, that of creating community and interconnecting the people who live in small urban centers. With his creations he tries to capture fantasies with which everyone can identify;…

    Maarten Baas and his human clocks

    The Dutch artist Maarten Baas produces works that stand at a crossroads between visual art, performance and design, creating manual clocks that are erased and redrawn from time to time. In pieces such as Grandfather Clock and Schiphol Clock, Baas enters to the structure of temporary devices, functioning as the human mechanism of his works. In other pieces of his series Real Time is helped by another artist to create 12-hour movies, like a trash line swept perpetually that doubles as the hands of a clock. Maarten Baas began his time-based series in 2009, at the Salone Del Mobile in Milan, Italy, and is currently exhibiting a piece in the…

    Daku fills the streets of India with poems

    It could be a metaphor, but no, the Indian artist Daku used sunlight to fill the streets of India with poems. Panjim, capital of Goa, southwest India, has been the place chosen for this intervention that is becoming visible as the abundant light of the region makes its appearance every day. A hanging fishing net with the inverted letters incorporated makes it possible for the sun to filter through it and project the texts on the ground. “Time works wonders“, “Time moves“, “Time flies over us, but leaves behind its shadow“, “Time fades“, “Time is an illusion” are some of the phrases that pedestrians they are on their way down…

    An old tree as a library

    Sharalee Armitage Howard, artist and former bookbinder had a great idea when she had no choice but to be forced to cut a 110-year-old poplar from her garden because of its deteriorated condition: a little library inside. It took inspiration from the nonprofit organization, Little Free Library, and Sharalee thought they could create a unique space in the trunk of the tree. She and her family in Idaho (USA), excited, began by sculpting it from the inside, to then put a shelf and finish decorating it with a small roof and a glass-like door that gives a magical, fairy tale and that allows passers-by take a free book home or…

    The Demise of Mother Ganges by Giulio Di Sturco

    The Ganges is the embodiment of all sacred waters in Hindu mythology, its cultural significance is so great that it is the first non-human entity in India to be granted the same legal rights as a person. Italian photographer Giulio di Sturco spent eight years photographing the body of water, documenting it as both person and place in ‘Living Entity’. “The Ganges is a river intimately connected with every aspect of Indian life”, di Sturco writes. “It is a source of water, energy, and livelihood for millions of people who live along the banks of the river, and thanks to the fertile land, it provides food to more than one-third…

    The Artic melts: dramatic photographs of Tom Hegen

    The photographer is known for his aerial images to create awareness about the action of the human being on the planet. His latest project captures the effect of global warming on the Arctic ice. Greenland unfreezes and we, in turn, fall in love. The global increase in sea level is already one of the great environmental challenges of the 21st century. As a consequence of climate change, the Arctic is the place where the warming of the earth is taking place most rapidly. Scientists predict that an increase in temperature by 2 degrees Celsius could cause the Greenland ice to melt, which could mean raising the sea level by another…
