Sound installation by Alex Allmont uses old LEGO to create a machine to generate electronic music - video embedded below:
Play house is an automata that mechanically computes and performs hooky and hypnotic acid house. Like a generative musical loom, a single drive turns a sequence of LEGO gears, levers and latches that mutate riffs and rhythm patterns. These are played out on analogue drums and synthesisers from the halcyon days of 1980’s dance music while the machine gradually shifts the timbre and space of the sound. In the piece the process of creation is laid bare so one can indulge in picking apart the interactions driving the score, seeing sound as it changes in sculpture, exploring our expectations in music, or simply rocking out to some fruity acid.
"rate" - super high frequency lighting
Latest project from Daito Manabe and Motoi Ishibashi are lamps which normally give off white light, yet when recorded with a digital camera are shown to emit animated coloured patterns - video embedded below:
It looks just white with human eyes because it is changing it’s color in super fast speed (about 1000hz ~ 1000000hz ).But if you shoot it with a digital video camera you can see the patterns in the image.
In research of digital information the installation ‘for those who see’ shows the beauty of the unseen.

The Ryugyong Hotel is a true display of North Korea’s madness. Work started on this 105 story hotel only a few years before a massive famine plagued the country. Abandoned for 16 years, work once again began in 2008, when it was coated in $150 million worth of glass. Foreign guests have reported that although the structure now looks complete on the outside, a lot of the interior is still abandoned and incomplete.

Dutch Architects 3-D Printing Canal House
A team in Amsterdam is working to 3-D print the classic Dutch canal house, a project that marries the city’s traditional architecture with state-of-the-art additive manufacturing.
Their effort is more than a study in futuristic design and building—they’ve got their sights on very real global issues that are set to mount in coming years.
"For the first time in history, over half the world’s population is living in cities," says Hans Vermeulen, a cofounder of the 3-D Print Canal House project. “We need a rapid building technique to keep up the pace with the growth of megacities and we thing 3-D printing can actually be the technique to provide good housing for the billions of people on this planet.”
