'Ocean Atlas' Artificial Reef By Jason deCaires Taylor Drops Into Bahamas Sea

Sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor has deployed the largest single underwater sculpture ‘Ocean Atlas’ in Nassua, Bahamas. It is a young, local Bahamian girl holding up the ceiling of the ocean.

“During low tide, the waterwill  reflect a mirror image of the sculpture on the underside of the sea’s surface,” writes MyModern Met.

Constructed using sustainable pH neutral materials, the work is meant to be an artificial reef for marine life. The sculpture draws tourists away from overstressed natural reefs. As the artist states, “With our oceans and coral reefs currently facing collapse from numerous threats including; overfishing, habitat loss, ocean acidification, global warming and water pollution the piece symbolizes the burden we are currently asking future generations to carry and the collective responsibility we have to prevent its collapse.”

Speaking previously about the place of his art in saving coral reefs, Jason deCaires Taylor informs us:

Coral reefs attract an array of marine life (such as colourful fish, turtles, sea urchins, sponges, and sharks) and also provide enclosed spaces for sea creatures to breed or take refuge.

Only about 10 – 15% of the sea bed has a solid enough substratum to allow reefs to form naturally. In order to increase the number of reefs in these areas artificial reefs have recently been created from materials that are durable, secure and environmentally sensitive. These reefs appear to have been successful in that they have attracted coral growth which, in turn, can support an entire marine ecosystem.

One of the greatest benefits of artificial reefs is that they have lifted the pressure off natural reefs which, over the past few decades, have been over-fished and over-visited.

Philippe Starck's PATH Prefabricated 'Green' House Opens In Paris

Architect/designer Philippe Starck has realized his dream of building a ‘deeply modern’ and environmentally responsible prefabricated house with his first installation on the perimeter of Paris. Called PATH (Prefabricated Accessible Technology Homes), the house os designed to be ready for shipping in 6 months and requiring no more than two weeks on onsite construction.

PATH is a collaboration with Starck, a Slovenian engineering firm Riko and French’green’ technology experts.

PATH is a decidedly modern glass and aluminum two-story house outfitted with a host of energy-efficient and energy-producing elements, including solar panels, wind turbines, rainwater collection devices, and heath pumps—all strategically chosen to help the house yield twice the energy required for its operation. While this prototype—which features the kind of light-saturated, open-plan interior, and smart storage solutions to warm the heart of any modernist—will eventually be occupied by the designger and his family, Stark’s vision for PATH is a good deal more inclusive. The PATH concept is intended to be widely adaptable to a range of home models, each customizable to desired size, floor plan, individual features, and, consequently, price points. via

Starck describes the house as ‘not an architectural work’ but rather a concept made with the best engineering and technology available.

Riko’s CEO Janez Škrabec also downplays the wow factor in favour of a purer purpose, writes Wallpaper. ‘We have to replace beauty, which is a culture concept with goodness, which is a humanistic concept,’ he says, noting that he and Starck share similar values. ‘We reinvigorate each other.’

Artist Rebecca Rütten Explores Class & American Fast Food Culture | Whole Foods Responsibly Grown Rating System

German photographer Rebecca Rütten explores the topic of eating a healthy diet and class status in our modern American Fast Food culture with her series ‘Contemporary Pieces’, a series of five still lifes and five portraits. She states:

“During the conception of ‘Contemporary Pieces’, I became enamored with the eroticism, presentation and charisma of paintings from the Renaissance Period. In the Late Renaissance painters dealt with the middle and lower classes. In my opinion, Fast Food Culture represents these two social classes in the United States today. To eat healthy is expensive. However, one can buy large amounts of food at a fast food restaurant for a comparatively low price.”

Rebecca Rütten’s friends posed as her models, healthy food lovers who express a certain aristocratic disdain for the cheap, fat-ladened, mass-produced, genetically-modified foods they are holding. For the most part, Rebecca’s models don’t consider that what they are holding qualifies as food.

In America, Rütten’s friends would likely shop at Whole Foods. Today the upscale grocery brand launched a new rating system for its produce suppliers called Responsibly Grown.

Whole Foods will now rate its produce ‘good’, ‘better’ or ‘best’, based on pesticide and water use, treatment of farm workers, waste management including plastic waste and “whether they provide conservation areas to foster bees, butterflies and other pollinators,” writes the NYTimes.

“This is the latest example of our commitment to transparency and sustainable agriculture,” said Matt Rogers, who handles standards and sourcing at Whole Foods. British stores will not be involved in the launch of the Responsibbly Grown initiative, which will impact about half the produce sold in the 390 Whole Foods stores in America.

Whole Foods Responsibly Grown

In September 2014 Greg Asbed and Lucas Benitez, Co-founders, Coalition of Immokalee Workers were among the honorees at the Clinton Global Initiative. The Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) is a worker-based human rights organization internationally recognized for its achievements in the fields of corporate social responsibility, community organizing, and sustainable food.  The CIW is also a leader in the growing movement to end human trafficking due to its groundbreaking work to combat modern-day slavery and other labor abuses common in agriculture. The CIW works in three broad and overlapping spheres:

Viking Horn-Inspired Turbines Make Green Music In Copenhagen

The government of Denmark finds that wind power is by far the cheapest new form of electricity in the country. New onshore wind plants coming online in 2016 will provide energy for about half the price of coal and natural gas plants, according to the Danish Energy Agency (DEA), and will cost around five cents per kilowatt hour.

Denmark pioneered wind power during the 1970s and created a manufacturing base that today leads the technology. Wind power provided one-third of Denmark’s energy consumption in 2013 and 41% of energy consumption in the first half of 2014. The goal is 50% of Denmark’s energy consumption coming from wind power by 2020.

How poetic and relevant it is that designers Laura Mesa Arango and Rafael Sanchez Herrera are inspired by Denmark’s wind power history but also historical Viking horn forms for their new exhibit at the 2014 Land Art Generator Initiative.

Located at Copenhagen’s harbor edge, the project of 12 large-scale Viking horn forms function as ‘compact wind acceleration turbines’ that both generate energy but also produce a public ‘sound landscape’ designed to create a public space in which people can reflect on the impact of environmental forces on past, current, and future realities.

The sounds from the turbines come as air movement interacts with the horn’s shape and an arrangement of holes in the lower portion. The tones produced correspond ‘with letters of the alphabet that refer to natural forces’ including ‘S-U-N’, ‘W-A-T-E-R’, and ‘I-C-E’.

'Bronze Age' Sensual Furniture By Frank Tjeplema 

Frank Tjeplema, lead designer and founder of Dutch studio Tjeo produces inspiring bronze furniture that is exquisite in terms of its craftsmanship and sensuality. The collection called ‘Bronze Age’ is presented in the ballroom of the Colloredo Mansfeld Palace in Prague. Tnepkema explains:

“Bronze Age collection contains all hand-crafted pieces, using traditional skills that once underpinned our very survival, each piece a manually intensive work and formed from the material that represents the dawn of civilisation. For this project I wanted to create something totally opposite to the technology driven trends based on the emergence of new digital tools such as 3d printing. I like the idea that bronze is precious and is therefor implicitly sustainable, it is either preserved or remelted but never discarded, who knows maybe these pieces contain a couple of remelted ancient bronze swords!” 

Bronze Age by Tjep. from Frank Tjepkema on Vimeo.


As for his design vision, ” (it is) ‘as a reaction to the unstoppable digitalisation and virtualisation of all our basic needs, all the way to love and friendship, I feel an urge to produce work that is antagonistic to this trend.’ says Frank Tjepkema
