suckerPUNCH » The Lonely Lover (vs) The Permanent Bachelor | [THE COOL STUFF] | Scoop.it

"Oh_mami_mentum = helen n. LEVIN + jen WOOD: The Lonely Lover is constantly opposed, craving and craved for by the Permanent Bachelor. The physical space of the craving is the Love Room: a bubble at the end of a pheromone trail. This trail is forged through the interplay between those who sit and wait for love without direction and those who constantly seek love whilst lacking that same direction."

LAMH // Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust by Belzberg Architects | Yatzer | [THE COOL STUFF] | Scoop.it

"In 2010 the LAMH (Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust) was completed, created by Belzberg Architects. This project covering an approximate area of 32,000 sqft, has been designed with a great sensitivity and an even greater need to capture the essence of its displays through, form, structure, light and circulation. The architecture plays a primal role in the emotional journey that its visitors are ready to commence, taking them form past to present."

Anemone Installation / Oyler Wu Collaborative - eVolo | Architecture Magazine

Anemone Installation / Oyler Wu Collaborative - eVolo | Architecture Magazine | [THE COOL STUFF] | Scoop.it

Anemone is an art installation aimed at waving together aesthetic experience and tactile engagement- a combination generally considered off limits within the world of contemporary art. All too often, art installations are considered precious, almost sacred objects; while they are meant to be appreciated for their aesthetic beauty, they offer little in terms of human interaction. In other words, they are meant to be seen, not felt. Recognizing that human engagement is one of the key factors in creating a rich experience, Anemone has been designed with the idea of interaction as one of its key design objectives.

Do Ho Suh’s ‘Cause & Effect’: A Vortex of Little Orange Men | Colossal | [THE COOL STUFF] | Scoop.it

“‘Cause & Effect’ evokes a vicious tornado. This vast ceiling installation is a composition of densely hung strands that anchor thousands of figures clad in colors resembling a Doppler reading stacked atop one another,” said Do Ho Suh, adding that the artwork is a “physical realization of existence, suggesting strength in the presence of numerous individuals. The work is an attempt to decipher the boundaries between a single identity and a larger group, and how the two conditions coexist.”

spatial slur: PheroPrint | [THE COOL STUFF] | Scoop.it

"In continuing to look at the idea of chemotaxis among agent populations, I added a third dimension to the pheromone based simulation from earlier. Taking a similar approach, two populations of agents compete for space in a finite volume. Each population attempts to drag the pheromone concentration towards a desired level to which it is also attracted. Eventually the populations negotiate respective territories producing similar results to some previous space partitioning studies. Below is a 3d print of isosurfaces extracted from the resulting pheromone cloud."

"This research investigates the application of Triple periodic continuous minimal surfaces in the design of shell structures. It presents different formal outcomes derived from the implementation of a computational algorithm which generates Minimal surfaces having a Quadri-rectangular Tetrahedron as a kaleidoscopic cell, as well as derived from the inclusion of those preliminary results into a parametric system."
