Lamp Made From A Plant, Controlled Via A Living Interface
German designer Viktor Kölbig has created a house plant/table lamp hybrid that lets you control a light using the interface of a plant.
The project is called Aura and lets you control LEDs by touching a plant or flower—it uses invisible sensors so you can touch an area of the plant and the light can be dimmed or the color changed. The plant rests in a glass vase that sits atop a milled aluminum case embedded with LED lights, which are controlled by a hidden, separate microcontroller
These peculiar natural phenomena are formed on new layers of sea ice from saturated water vapors that come up from under the ice through cracks. In contact with the cold air, the vapors start to freeze and the salt on the surface of the ice begins to crystallize, serving as a base for the sublimated water to build off of. The ‘petals’ of ice flowers are very delicate and will come off when touched. They usually form in sunlight and typically are visible in the early mornings or in shaded areas.
This is my card “Strength” for the Light Grey Art Lab Tarotshow in Oktober. I actually wanted to post it later, but you can already see it in their preorder-post, so why not post it now.
So many amazing artists participated in this show and I am really honored to be part of it as well. Here is the artist list: link.
These stunning photos by Oleg Gordienko feature one of the most beautiful train tunnels in the world. (It is located in an enchanting Ukrainian forest.) Gordienko does a great job at capturing distance and space with these shots, as lush green vegetation forms the most perfect path. (via)
