The Theory

Great cinema from a small source: »The Theory« presents the world’s smallest all action police chase. »Directing duo The Theory presents the tiniest police chase ever seen, made using the world’s smallest ‚pocket video projectors‘. Featuring an escaped convict, a determined cop and a fully armed police helicopter, Speed of Light takes ‚projection mapping‘ to a whole new (and low) level.«

Out of Place

In Robert Rickhoffs world cities are filled with confusion. The Hamburg-based artist invades public space with wit and a great sense of humour. There is also a certain kind of fatality about the way, Rickhoff translates urbanity. Urban exploration done on the computer. Very nice!

Kopf Kino

Shopping trolleys have become somehow part of the visual memory of art history. The newest trolley-based work comes from artist collective on/off. The device itself is constructed from a modified trolley filled with car batteries, a projector and computer held in place with cable ties. Read more about the practical use at designboom


Green Pedestrian Crossing

Nice project from China: »The China Environmental Protection Foundation developed an outdoor campaign, displayed on the street, to creatively promote this message. They decided to leverage a busy pedestrian crossing; a place where both pedestrians and drivers meet.

The campaign involved laying a canvas 12.6 metres long by 7 metres wide on the ground, thus covering the pedestrian crossing with a large leafless tree. On either side of the road, beneath the traffic lights, were placed sponge cushions soaked in green, environmentally friendly, washable paint. As pedestrians walked towards the crossing, they stepped on the green sponge, thus leaving green foot imprints on the canvas of the tree. Each „green“ footprint on the canvas looked like leaves growing on a bare tree, which made people feel that by walking they could create a greener environment.«

Goldfish Club

There is nothing unusual in finding large aquariums in bars, hotels or restaurants. To find one in a telephone box, however, is much more surprising. Kingyobu a.k.a. the Goldfish Club have been making an aquarium out of a public telephone and placed hundreds of goldfish inside.

Tapis Rouge

A breath of green lies on the streets of Jaujac, a small medieval village in southern France. A long path of about 168 rolls of grass extend for 1400 meters leads visitors through the heart of this beautiful place. »Tapis Rouge« is the work of Marseillian artist Gaëlle Villedary.
