I'm still sticking with them looking like Albrecht Durer postcards.
Neat but postcardy.
Not so much of a design, since it's not useful as it's simply beautiful, it's Ai Weiwei's work in Tate Modern London:
What's all this about? From Tate's site:
Ai Weiwei’s Sunflower Seeds is made up of millions of small works, each apparently identical, but actually unique. However realistic they may seem, these life-sized sunflower seed husks are in fact intricately hand-crafted in porcelain.
Each seed has been individually sculpted and painted by specialists working in small-scale workshops in the Chinese city of Jingdezhen. Far from being industrially produced, they are the effort of hundreds of skilled hands. Poured into the interior of the Turbine Hall’s vast industrial space, the 100 million seeds form a seemingly infinite landscape.
So cool. Calvin and Hobbes in 3D.
"All the world is a stage". In this theater the dance of a puppet, destructured in time and space, shows us the mechanisms that pulls the strings.
