To celebrate the launch of their new studio 'Pernilla & Asif', London-based architects and designers Pernilla Ohrstedt and Asif Khan created an experimental installation called 'Cloud', using helium gas, water and soap to form a floating roof canopy. Originally exhibited at Design Miami/ Basel for the W Hotels Designer of the Future Award, 'Cloud' was then recreated on a larger scale, producing ten thousand clouds over two days in East London's York Hall.

Now the pair (who met at the Bartlett School of Architecture in London), are currently working on 'The Coca-Cola Beatbox', a musical instrument and pavilion commissioned by Coca-Cola for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

For some, graffiti is unlimited and some are known because they expressed through the accumulation of different forms of calligraphy. Tilt worked for several years on the accumulation calligraphic, whether figurative or not. Its past and its present feed on visions of tags and graffs that can be found on the banks of railways, in abandoned factories or squatter settlements in cities he visits. This love for calligraphy overdose took him today to invest one chamber of the Old Shopping playing on the contrast. Here we leave the result will not let you indifferent. Amazing is not it?

Video by Mark mungkey Vicente. Synopsis: After throwing a question about the end of everything .... the last computer on earth is tasked by an unknown entity to 'think' and 'review' about what has happened to the world ...

Description: I was clearing-up the drives of unused files (for deletion) and saw some old shots I did with erwin a long time ago just lying around and eating some disk space, and I thought why not try to load 'em up in after effects and see what I can come up with. This is the result. I really didn't think about it that much just a surge of randomicity.

Background Music is by Shem Rusko.
