Jody Xiong of DDB China in conjunction with the China Environmental Protection Foundation created ‘Green Pedestrian Crossing’ an outdoor campaign that creates a subtle visual reminder of the environmental benefits of walking versus driving.
The campaign involved laying a canvas 12.6 metres long by 7 metres wide on the ground, thus covering the pedestrian crossing with a large leafless tree. On either side of the road, beneath the traffic lights, were placed sponge cushions soaked in green, environmentally friendly, washable paint.
As pedestrians walked towards the crossing, they stepped on the green sponge, thus leaving green foot imprints on the canvas of the tree. Each ‘green’ footprint on the canvas looked like leaves growing on a bare tree, which made people feel that by walking they could create a greener environment. The ‘Green Pedestrian Crossing’ was carried out across 7 thoroughfares in Shanghai. The campaign was then extended to 132 roads across 15 cities in China, with a participation exceeding 3,920,000 people.

Berlin firm ART+COM has recently completed this art installation for the departure hall of Terminal 1 at Changi Airport, Singapore. Thin steel wires and lightweight aluminum covered with copper were used to create the 608 rain droplets. Suspended from thin steel ropes above the two opposing escalators, each droplet is moved precisely and seemingly floating by a computer-controlled motor hidden in the halls ceiling. The drops follow a 15-minute, computationally designed choreography where the two parts move together in unison, sometimes mirroring, sometimes complementing, and sometimes responding to each other.
Robert Buelteman creates image of the plant’s coronal discharging in a technique similar to Kirlian photography. Robert works indoors in total darkness, forsaking cameras, lenses, and computers for jumper cables, fiber optics, and 80,000 volts of electricity. He then light paints the photograph with a fiber optic wire to complete the effect.
Robert Buelteman begins by painstakingly whittling down flowers, leaves, sprigs, and twigs with a scalpel until they’re translucent. He then lays each specimen on color transparency film and, for a more detailed effect, covers it with a diffusion screen. Read More…

Fabrica Doping Thrower presents an art installation devised and executed by the Cuban artist Erik Ravelo at the Dray Walk Gallery (the Old Truman Brewery) in the heart of London.
The sculpture was inspired by the Discobolus (the discus thrower), the famous statue by Myron, from around 445 B.C., which is a symbol of the passion for the Olympic Games and of the cult of human physical perfection. The Doping Thrower is completely smothered in hundreds of multicolour capsules, phials and tablets and even a drip feed.
It invites us to reflect on the habit of using and abusing drug-based substances and treatments to improve an athlete’s performance by artificial means. It should also be seen as a criticism of the anti-doping system which often, in the name of economic power, does fully not safeguard the health of athletes. This deviation from the concept of fair play is unsportsmanlike and dangerously widespread amongst young amateur or occasional athletes who take seriously health-threatening drugs despite having a perfectly healthy body.
The installation can be seen until 6 August (11:00 – 19:00).

Caffeine is a bitter, crystalline xanthine alkaloid that acts as a stimulant drug. In plants, caffeine functions as a defence mechanism. Found in varying quantities in the seeds, leaves and fruit of some plants, caffeine acts as a natural pesticide that paralyses and kills certain insects feeding on the plant. The main crystals of caffeine were 400-500 microns long; however, this crystal group formed on the end of the larger crystal and measures around 40 microns in length.
