    "using 1,300 punching bags, 6.5 miles of stainless steel cable, and 2,500 pounds of aluminum pipe to construct a 22-foot-high installation that took three years to complete" By artist Michael Kalish.
    "The idea for the project came to Kalish as he was falling asleep one night in 2008: an array of custom-made, teardrop-shaped speed bags suspended in midair that, from just one vantage point, align themselves like pixels into an image of Ali's face."

    Porcelain art by Kate Macdowell. Impressive and pretty!
    "I’ve lived and worked in many different environments and cultures that have influenced the way I perceive the world, and therefore my pieces. These experiences have ranged from teaching in urban high schools and producing websites in the high-tech corporate environment, to volunteering at a meditation retreat center in rural India a few hours outside of the fever pitch of Bombay. I’ve also collected visual imagery and ideas from my travels through Renaissance Italy, Classical and Minoan Greece, Nepal and Thailand."

    Kiss Controller is a game input device that controls the direction and speed of a bowling ball while users are kissing.
    "The Kiss Controller interface has two components: a customized headset that functions as a sensor receiver and a magnet that provides sensor input. The user affixes a magnet to his/ her tongue with Fixodent. Magnetic field sensors are attached to the end of the headset and positioned in front of the mouth. As the user moves her tongue, this creates varying magnetic fields that are used to control games. "

    This project explores the invisible terrain of WiFi networks in urban spaces by light painting signal strength in long-exposure photographs. A four-metre long measuring rod with 80 points of light reveals cross-sections through WiFi networks using a photographic technique called light-painting.

    Thousands of screws make a 3d portrait, by artist Andrew Myers.
    He draws out a face and pre-drills 8,000 to 10,000 holes, by hand. As he drills in the screws, Myers doesn't rely on any computer software to guide him, he figures it out as he goes along. "For me, I consider this a traditional sculpture and all my screws are at different depths," he says.

    "One day, when I was jumping at a famous sightseeing spot in western Tokyo, workers at a souvenir shop were frightened by how I was jumping. They were whispering things like 'Is the girl mentally ill' and 'Do we need to call the police?'
    "So I stopped jumping and apologized to them by saying, 'I am taking jumping photos for my wedding party's slide show.' Their faces turned bright red, and they said things like 'Oh dear!' and 'Congratulations!' and even 'Keep jumping!'

    "Moss Invaders" is a project, when someone touches one of the Moss Invaders on the wall, then playing 8-bit sounds. The project by Marko Manriquez and Kimi Spencer.
    User Scenario
    The visitor chooses reflect upon the moss mural and then on closer inspection touches the moss. The moss responds by playing a sound. This prompts the visitor to touch different parts of the moss. Different visitors standing around listen or start playing different parts of the mural in concert.
    Implementation
    Moss invaders comprises a living graffiti mural and a capacitive sound installation into one piece. The moss mural is made using laser cut stencils to mold a moss milkshake concoction of our own devising. The moss paste is “painted” onto the stencils to grow directly onto the brick wall surface. The sound installation aspect takes the moss invaders into the intergalactic realm. Each moss pad is a capacitive sensor which plays 8-bit musical sounds when touched.

    "YOUTH is a collection of memories that I have experienced with many genuine friends of mine. The project has taken about 4 memorable months and I wouldn't give them up for anything. It truly has been an eye-opening experience for me, and a few of my friends that helped make this video possible." By Tommy Petroni.
    Mr. Bean created a white room to project colors, patterns and textures of the furniture, wallpapers and carpet. All done with 2 projectors.

    Back to the future by Irina Werning.
    "Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today... A few months ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future."

    In this time-lapse video created from thousands of individual frames, photographers Scott Andrews, Stan Jirman and Philip Scott Andrews condense six weeks of painstaking work into three minutes, 52 seconds.
    A rarely-staged early work (1970) by Trisha Brown, it hadn't been seen in the United States since its New York debut nearly 40 years ago until the performance above, on July 5, 2008, sponsored by the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

    Downtown From Behind is a photo project - "New Yorkers ride their bikes through the streets of lower Manhattan"
    The photographs are taken by Bridget Fleming who moved to the Lower East Side from Australia in 2008. She hopes to capture "the heartbeat of New York" through the city's most creative residents - writers, designers, chefs, models, musicians, entrepreneurs and actors.
    “It’s a nonportrait portrait,” Ms. Fleming said. “The shots are composed as if the biker has center stage, but the street and the whole collection are the stars.”

    Eric Jacqmain, 19 year old, from Indiana in the US, covered an ordinary fibreglass satellite dish with 5,800 tiny mirror tiles - and made his very own 'death ray'.
    "The R5800 is my latest and greatest solar creation. Made from an ordinary fiberglass satellite dish, it is covered in about 5800 3/8" (~1cm) mirror tiles. When properly aligned, it can generate a spot the size of a dime with an intensity of 5000 suns! This amount of power is more than enough to melt steel, vaporize aluminum, boil concrete, turn dirt into lava, and obliterate any organic material in an instant. It stands at 5'9" and is 42" across. " Check out the video! Currently he is building an even larger one with 32,000 mirrors, wow!
