SUSTAINABLE TRAILER PARK

design squish blog

Emergency Response Studio, by Paul Villinski, is a solar-powered, mobile artist’s studio, rebuilt from an old trailer. An artist needs to be mobile and free just in case of the ocean water rising because Greenland is melting, and other devastating natural disasters, such as Katrina in New Orleans.

NEW PARK IN NYC

design squish blog

The High Line was built in the 1930s. It lifted freight traffic 30 feet in the air, removing dangerous trains from the streets of Manhattan. No trains have run on the High Line since 1980. Friends of the High Line, a community-based non-profit group, formed in 1999 when the historic structure was under threat of demolition. Friends of the High Line works in partnership with the City of New York to preserve and maintain the structure as an elevated public park.

I really like these paintings by Alexandra Paperno. Alexandra was born in Moscow, studied art in New York at the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art and currently resides in Moskow.  In Constellation Series Alexandra paints night sky, star maps and stars. Vladimir Levashov writes about her work : her paintings are set on the “borderline between abstraction and figurativeness, between the image of an object and the interpretation of its attributes. However, it is not always exactly the maps. Sometimes it is a globe, sometimes – just a single star. The star, however, may as well turn out to be the “Grey sun”. Not a point, but a tondo (a professional term), a circle, expressively painted over with the most low-key, the most complicated colour. It so happens that the sun is not exactly the sun, and the stars are more like points, celestial nebula – coloristic surfaces, but altogether – it represents sheer painting. Nevertheless, it is not “merely painting”, not a superficial formalism, but a huge mass of deeply emotional substance. It is the very thing, which the night sky represents for each of us: fairytale, mysterious and inaccessibly sublime. And the best art for it is nothing else but a map”

FLOATING ECO-ORIENTED BARGE HOUSE

design squish blog



design squish blog



The Waterpod is a floating art project, community and living space on a barge. The structure is built from recycled wood, billboard sign material, metal and powered by a hybrid solar/wind system that also runs all on-board equipment.  The barge also incorporates a garden with vegetables (lettuce, sunflowers, corn, eggplant and e.t.c ) grown with purified water from the vertical agriculture. Four artists live on the barge and are very friendly to talk to you about their project.  There is also a chicken coop made from recycled shipping crate previously used to ship artworks.

VIRTUAL FISH AQUARIUM

I love the idea of a virtual interactive fish aquarium mainly because you do not have to have a real fish aquarium and because by adding it to your desktop, website and google you can look at it every time you go on your computer.
P.S ( It is really fun to feed them!)
You can change the fish colors, fish food color and background.  This is how my fish aquarium looks like:
