Back in March of this year, Hendzel + Hunt hosted a spin off 24HR Design Challenge, open to students at London College of Communication, during the University’s Green Week. The range of events sought to champion intelligent and ethical creativity with a selection of workshops, exhibitions, screenings, lectures and design challenges taking place throughout the week.
The University’s annual Green Week is full of interesting ideas and innovative designs.
“A platform for showcasing current good practice, Green Week will see students, staff and guests collaborators utilize design and media thinking to unpick this year’s themes of waste, transport, consumption, biodiversity and water”.
This years theme was ‘evolve or die’ and the video shows the diverse results of the challenge. The video featured on Hendzel + Hunt’s website was created by Netta Peltola.
This is a beautiful art installation I saw in Terminal 1 at Changi Aiport in Singapore. Although it has very little to do with recycling, I thought I would include it on the blog because of it’s sheer beauty and the way it links art and technology.
“Kinetic Rain” consists of two symmetrical elements composed of 608 individual drops made of lightweight aluminium covered with copper. Each drop is connected with a very thin steel rope to a computer-controlled motor moving it precisely up and down.
The sculpture was designed by ART+COM a Berlin based non-profit organisation which aims to explore the new mediums applied possibilities in the fields of art, design, science and technology. The installation is situated above the escalators, so it can be seen from underneath, above and from numerous different angles. This offers various different perspectives and visual experiences for the passengers passing through the terminal.
