A German digital media student Dennis Siegel had created a devise that can catch electronic energy from thin air.
We are sourrounded by electromagnetic fields which we are producing for information transfer or as a byproduct. Many of those fields are very capacitive and carry more energy than requiered. The redundant energy can be harvested with coils and high frequency diodes. Accordingly to this I built special harvesting devices that are able to tap into several electromagnetic fields to exploit them. The energy is getting stored in an usual battery. So you can for example gain energy from the power supply of a coffee machine, a cell phone or the catenary of a train by holding the harvester directly into the electromagnetic field whose strenght is indicated by a LED on the top of the harvester. Depending on the strenght of the field it is possible to charge a small battery within one day. The system is meant to be an option for granting access to already existing but unheeded energy sources. By exploring these sources it can create a new awareness of the invisible electromagnetic spaces.
Zip Drawing is an installation using Egyptian cotton thread created by Anne Lindberg. This will be display at Carrie Secrist Gallery in Chicago through October 20.
Lola Dupré, a young artist who is currently working in Glasgow but is soon to move to the south of France, is using those basic elements in order to pay homage to the work of famous artists like Man Ray andVermeer. Lola, who defines herself as a collage artist and illustrator, caused a big buzz with her recent works that could be defined as kaleidoscope explosion portraits.
Palestinian artist Amer Shomali created this amazing portrait of Leila Khaled made of 3,500 lipstick tubes for an art exhibition at Birzeit University.
This Is an innovative clever and flat auditorium seating design by Ziba
The JumpSeat is a compact auditorium chair that is ideal for auditoriums, theaters and public assembly areas. Plywood and spring steel create the backbone of the JumpSeat’s cantilevered structure. Folding to less than four inches thick when not in use, the compact seat allows for the maximum amount of people in the minimum amount of space.
