An architect in the skies tires of his creation and decides to spice things up a bit.
Stockholm based studio ‘Humans since 1982’ will present their kinetic work “A million times”.
A Million Times uses 288 analogue clocks programmed via an iPad to create a series of swooping, swirling visual patterns, a digital clock face and lettering. It was commissioned by the design and art dealer Victor Hunt, who said: “Locked in its functionality to show the time, the natural character inherent to an analogue clock – with its two arms constantly dancing in slow motion around the center – unveils hidden figurative qualities without denying its primary purpose.”

Abstract rainbows of color fill the landscape in these beautiful photos by French photographer Normann Szkop (nsfw-ish) who hopped in a Cesna with pilot Claython Pender to soar above the tulip fields in Anna Paulowna, a town in North Holland. Collectively, the millions of neatly planted flowers create sprawling patterns and designs that tourists flock to witness with their own eyes every season.
