Simen Johan: Until the Kingdom Comes

read
Norwegian artist explores the space between reality and fiction.

In his series Until the Kingdom Comes, New York-based artist Simen Johan creates dramatic tableaux of wildlife with weird and unnatural twists. In the large-scale color photos and taxidermy-based sculptures, nothing is quite as it seems. A pair of white owls sit perched on a picnic table in the fog; a pair of foxes huddle together in the snow, crying; two moose battle in a rugged landscape, with......read more

Space Exploration Goes Solar

read
Japanese "solar sail" propelled by the sun.

Now, this is getting space-agey. The Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency says it has put solar panels on a spacecraft, which not only create power but they actively propel and maneuver it through space. The "Ikaros" solar sail absorbs photons from the sun that put pressure onto the solar sails reflective panels and propel the 700 pound craft. Ikaros is bound for an orbit around......read more

Like his countryman Andreas Gursky, German photographer Thomas Struth uses large format photos to document the social and environmental history of our time. In his new collection, on view until June 19 at Marian Goodman Gallery in New York, Struth lifts the veil on hidden industrial and scientific spaces, confronting the viewer with clean, clinical images of places and things that are typically......read more

Log Cabin by Piet Hein Eek

read
A sustainable studio space disguised as a pile of wood.

Made from sustainable wood and salvaged steel, this movable log cabin—created by Dutch green design maestro Piet Hein Eek—is as clever as it gets. Designed as a musician's rehearsal space—and built on wheels to avoid taxes and building regulations—the structure's facade is composed of small cross-sections of tree trunk. When the building is unoccupied and the shutters are......read more

Watershed Sustainable Workspace

Prefab with near-zero eco-footprint is the perfect retreat for Oregon nature writer.

We could get used to working here. Designed by FLOAT architecture, 'Watershed' is a 100 square foot writer's studio that reveals the complex ecology around it. Little tunnels under the structure bring reptiles and amphibians into view through the floor-level window. A water collection basin, doubling as the front step, attracts birds and deer. All of the structure's parts are......read more

Solar Power From Space?

read
Japanese government plans to capture solar energy in space and send it to Earth via laser or microwave by 2030.

The Japanese government recently chose a group of companies and research teams who are assigned to achieve this ambition, a dream worth billions of dollars, to produce clean energy in an unlimited amount in the next few decades. The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (Jaxa) hopes that the ambitious plans will help ease the country’s energy problems as well as provide a solution for global......read more

Futuristic Forests

read
O2 Treehouse builds geodesic domes in tree canopies, where not even Bucky Fuller imagined them. Talk about space-age sustainability.

Founded by future-focused architect Dustin Feider, O2 Treehouse designs and builds geodesic domes for leafy habitats. The company is guided by principles of sustainability; domes are hung in the canopy using a cable suspension system, so not a single hole is drilled in the host tree during installation; also, because the polygon design distributes stress evenly across the entire structure, the......read more
