  • 21 Swings

    Gear  |  Projects
    21 Swings is an interactive installation in Montréal’s Quartier des spectacles. It is a swing that makes different musical notes as the swings move and the music changes as additional people join in. 
    "The result is a giant instrument made of 21 musical swings; each swing in motion triggers different notes, all the swings together compose a piece, but some sounds only emerge from cooperation."
    Created by Mouna Andraos & Melissa Mongiat
    With support from Quartier des spectacles de Montréal

It looks weird, which entirely changes the way we ride bicycles, has been designed without any pedals and even no saddle. The Fliz also gets rid of the seat, and hangs the rider from the frame in a rather uncomfortable-looking sling. The Fliz Bike concept has been entered for a James Dyson design award. Watch the video!

    Artist Jill Sylvia creates intricate architectural models made from hand-cut ledger paper. "Using often book-bound sheets of lined paper, she cuts minuscule holes between each of the sheets' colored lines, giving the paper a perforated surface that becomes partially see-through. Once assembled, her models of classic U.S. architecture like the White House, Jefferson Memorial, and U.S. Capitol Building reveal their hidden inner details such as magnificent columns and domed ceilings."

    Four Sisters Recreate Their Childhood Photos

    Helsinki-based Wilma Hurskainen asked her three sisters to recreate about 30 older photographs that her father had taken of them when they were children. This photo project called Growth from 2004-2006. 
    "I have always been very attracted by the photograph's ability to cross time and create this kind of comparisons," she says. "There is something sad, almost tragic, about looking at old photographs compared to new ones and seeing how people and things have changed or grown up. After all, it is said that time has been accepted as a common means of measuring life because people are not able nor willing to see the change in themselves. In the pictures it seems as if we were trying to go back to our childhood by adopting the same position towards each other and the photographer's/spectator's gaze but we unavoidably fail. We have to fail – there is no return in time. "

    Do We Have Milk?

    Gear  |  Projects
    Music credit: The Seedy Seeds - Verb Noun 
    "You pour a bowl of cereal, or a cup of coffee. Go to the fridge. No milk. Maybe you’re already at the grocery store in the dairy aisle and wonder, “How much milk do I have left at home?” What if you could take a peek into your fridge anytime, anywhere?
    To monitor the amount of the remaining milk, we attached a weight sensor to the bottom of a milk jug to send the weight values to your phone. When the milk reaches dangerously low levels, you get an alert on your phone reminding you to get milk while using your current location to map nearby grocery stores."
