Large scale sculptures by Arman
Top photo is of sculpture titled Long Term Parking -
“Accumulation of 60 automobiles in concrete. 19,5 m. Parc de sculpture Le Montcel, Jouy-en-Josas, France”
Bottom photo is of sculpture entitled Hope For Peace

“Army tanks and armoured vehicles ambedded in concrete. 30 m - 4000 tonnes. Beyrouth, district of Yarzé, Lebanon.Five thousand tons of concrete, 30 meters high, clasped around 78 tanks, jeeps and various artillery parts : this was Arman’s very last monumental sculpture, erected in Beirut, in front of the Ministry of Defence. It is a works wich strongly denounces the follies of man, with its defiantly ironic title “Hope for Peace”. By its size, its cut, its harmonious appearance, it is a remarkable reflection of the image of a city which had long been reduced to the vision of buildings in ruins. Arman had been thinking about doing this sculpture for a long time […]. It focuses on both the cause and its effects. It blends shows machines alongside the results of their destruction. And if one is given to dreaming of a time when all these killing machines enshrouded in such masses of concrete with their symbolic protrusions are concealed beneath the surface.”

The Musalman

ahmedsalman:

Not only is The Musalman written by hand—at a time when printed newspapers are dying like sick lepers—it’s produced by a team of only four scribes. And it’s not just handwritten—it’s transcribed in calligraphy. These people work. Hard.

The Musalman has been operating in India since 1927, and has never had an employee quit—the only reason they leave the paper is because they’re dead. That is what you might call dedication—four Urdu calligraphers in an 800 square foot room, cranking out newspapers for very little pay. Do not expect an iPad edition.

Immaterials: Light painting WiFi

This project explores the invisible terrain of WiFi networks in urban spaces by light painting signal strength in long-exposure photographs. A four-metre long measuring rod with 80 points of light reveals cross-sections through WiFi networks using a photographic technique called light-painting.

“I believe fundamentally in a nonlinear world.”
-Cecil Balmond

Balmond’s structural designs break away from a closed, static paradigm based on rectangles,
triangles, and circles, and transform into something dynamic, organic, and full of complexity. In doing so, he breathes life into architecture.
