Aerial by Debombourg Baptist

Aerial is a site-specific installation piece by French artist Debombourg Baptist which examines the idea of togetherness within something broken. The piece is made from over two tons of glass, wood and nails and took over 420 hours to create.

Speaking about the piece Baptist said, “Destruction, like construction, is a human expression and a paradox of life because it is can be both good and evil. My personal point of view is that destruction is inevitably linked to repair.”

Serpentine Pavilion 2012

This year’s Serpentine pavilion, designed by Chinese artist Ai Weiwei and Beijing national stadium architects Herzog & de Meuron, will take visitors below the lawn of the London gallery into an underground maze of contoured cork, hidden under a watery roof. It is the twelfth commission in the gallery’s annual series and will form part of the London 2012 festival.

Soundmachines

‘Soundmachines’, created by Berlin-based studio The Product for Volkswagen, translates the process of DJ-ing electronic music into a physical device, using optical recognition towards the live mixing of sound via cut-out and coloured discs. For an event promoting the 2012 Volkswagen Beetle, the product collaborated with sound designer Yannick Labbé to develop three vinyl discs, each of which is connected to one track of an ableton live set.

Looks pretty slick.

Wagamama combines food, art and music in new festival format. lovely!

check out the latest on or wagamama event! link to review. Festival experience Williamson and her team adapted the restaurant chain’s format to deliver a “memorable experience” to festival goers. It follows a three-tier structure: a counter-serve restaurant with open plan group seating; a digital interactive graffiti wall for customers to design; and a DJ booth.

“We decided to create Wagamama Lounge because the quality of food and its pricing at festivals is so often disappointing,” explained Williamson. “People talk about the memories they’ve had at festivals, and for brands to go to festivals they have to offer an experience, something of value, something that people will take away with them.

“As a brand, we have the ability to offer that experience and that memory. It was really important for us when we talked about festivals that we’d offer that, and not just turn up in a van. But also alongside that it was important to offer delicious food of the same quality that people are used to in our restaurants, but items that are easy and convenient to eat.”
