Ryoji Ikeda's Spectra light tower. Dark MOFO, Cenotaph, Hobart. June 2013.
As you know, the Internet is a wonderful place filled with the rich and varied treasures of the world holds (and RSS feeds.) The following are some things that I've had a look at in the last week. I call this: a Compendium of Click-throughs for Monday Morning...
- On why it is good to be wrong.
- The Cross-Cultural Manufacturing of Beauty.
- When New Yorkers Lived Knee-Deep in Trash.
- A Billion-Pixel View of Mars From Curiosity Rover.
- The 10 Dumbest Things Ever Said About Same-Sex Marriage.
- The Ruins of Nan Madol.
- Why arts and science are better together.
- Imagine a tower of light reaching fifteen kilometres into the sky. At the base of the tower, forty-nine custom-made searchlights are set into the ground in a seven-by-seven grid. Sine waves - the purest kind of sound wave - form invisible sonic patterns at the base; your movement alters their composition in a way that only you can specify. Indeed, your experience is unlike your friends', or anyone else's at all. Welcome to Ryoji Ikeda's Spectra light tower.
