Olivier Grossetete - Pont de Singe (2012)
“Pont de Singe reflects the architecture of Tatton’s Japanese Garden as well as the flight of fancy of the Formal Gardens as a whole. The installation is a folly of design and engineering: a featherweight bridge designed for contemplation rather than function, emanating from and leading to the water, held aloft by three helium-filled balloons, recalling the power of daydreams and their ability to transform reality.”
Oki Sato - Like Walking Through an Illustration
Oki Sato from Japanese design firm, Nendo, created unique black and white illustrations within the installations at the Nendo Solo show in Taiwan. The concept was to make visitors feel as if they were walking through an illustration.
The exhibition will be divided into two rooms – one with black drawings on white and the other with white on black. The walls of the second room will be curved as though visitors are walking through the image in a fish-eye lens.
The devastation of the Black Dragon Pool in Lijiang, Yunnan, China.
The Black Dragon Pool was formerly reflection pool that held a view of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain and has been known for hundreds of years as one of the most beautiful places in the Yunnan province. As of this year, it has completely dried up, leaving a cracked wasteland marked by signs that are a reminder of what it one was.
