I’m paying attention to
+ Design Museum Boston is all set to pop-up in the window of an abandoned storefront near you.
Neat and interesting
+ Watch this video tour of the “Biology Range” at the New York State Museum. It’s where they keep all their “preserved biological specimens.” How much do you love natural history museums?? (Dr. Jeremy Kirchman is none other than the brother of this guy.)
Inspiration: More cars, and explosions
+ Another German museum, another car museum. What is amazing about the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart is that it has the World’s Largest Artificial Tornado inside. Its ventilation system draws in smoke from the building and sends it up and out an exhaust vent.
+ Still not enough cars? Have a look at these exploded views from the Porsche Museum (ahem, also in Germany) and the Harley Davidson Museum.
+ If cars aren’t your thing, you might instead enjoy an exploded view of an Etch A Sketch.
Inspiration: Light bright
+ Multiple Shadow House by Olafur Eliasson at the Tonya Bonakdar Gallery in NY.
+ The One Day Poem Pavilion “demonstrates the poetic, transitory, site-sensitive and time-based nature of light and shadow.”/most recently via Eclectica
