Richard Wright continues his work with York Glaziers Trust – Britain’s oldest stained glass conservation studio, who have a special connection to the medieval windows at York Minster. For this project he has made four leaded glass skylights in the ceiling at Aird’s Lane. Utilising the four rectangular skylights, Wright’s new work incorporates handmade, blown glass and leading, following a complex design developed by the artist. In response to the horizontal structure of the skylights, Wright has adapted the technique initially employed in his recent commission for Tate Britain’s eastern windows, in the Milbank foyer.’ (via The Modern Institute)

A set of furniture designed by Gigi Barker made to look (and smell) like blobs of human flesh. “Barker’s skin chair and skin stool set were created as part of a project called A Body of Skin, where she studied the ‘texture of skin and the shape of the body’, exploring ‘the intricate subtleties and varieties of the skin surface and the volume of the flesh’.” More here.

From the architect (amano design office): This is a conversion project that totally renovated a 25-year old office building, located on a back street of Omotesando in Tokyo, in order to facilitate commercial functions.
The client requested a design that would have a façade expression differentiated from the surrounding buildings, and that would be a part of future tenants’ branding.
We aimed at a design with a soft expression that would be favorably accepted by passersby, while standing out from the surrounding buildings that tended to have physically hard expressions. (Continue..)

” We wanted Malmöfestivalen to be able to celebrate in style. Therefore we created the largest physical graphic identity the world has ever seen, a gigantic physical art installation measuring 13×8 meters, enabling the visitors to interact, climb and jump on it. To produce the identity we used 10 000 nails, 175 litres of paint, 280 plywood sheets, 14 people during 900 hours, and we rented a skylift to photograph it 30 meters up in the air.” – Snask

François Daireaux has been developing art installations for over twenty years that incorporate different mediums: sculpture, photography, video, brought back from his many travels around the world. Far from the exotic or anecdotal, as a meticulous observer, he focuses on gestures, objects and the passage of time, revealing to us unsuspected layers of reality.

Olafur Eliasson’s art is driven by his interests in perception, movement, embodied experience, and feelings of self. Eliasson strives to make the concerns of art relevant to society at large. Art, for him, is a crucial means for turning thinking into doing in the world. Eliasson’s diverse works – in sculpture, painting, photography, film, and installations – have been exhibited widely throughout the world. Not limited to the confines of the museum and gallery, his practice engages the broader public sphere through architectural projects and interventions in civic space.
