Landed

Artist Ian Strange’s new installation shows a completely black house that looks as though it is being swallowed up by the concrete pavement. It was commissioned for the 2014 Biennial of Australian Art, which is currently being held at the Art Gallery of South Australia in Adelaide til 11 May.

EiffelTower’s 1st Floor Redevelopment

by Moatti-Rivière | Via

New buildings and entirely redeveloped public spaces to make the Tower’s 1st floor once again one of Paris’ most spectacular and attractive locations, 57 meters above the city.

Since the last transformation of the 1st floor 30 years ago, the Tower has welcomed more visitors than during its first century of existence! The pavilions and public spaces of the 1980s are obsolete and not adapted to the number of visitors, the visitors’ expectations and technical standards.

Floating Garden, an installation made entirely of salt.

Japanese artist Motoi Yamamoto began working with salt in 1994 after his young sister died of brain cancer. In order to cope with her death, he began making art that reflected his grief. In Japan, salt is used as a part of rituals in some funeral ceremonies and also used to ward off evil spirits and welcome good ones.
