Comments Off on Loop.pH’s Recycled Cable ‘Faraday Curtain’ Reflects Electromagnetic Fields

Commissioned for Bloomberg Philanthropy by art and design agency Arts Co , ‘Waste Not, Want It’ is a series of specially commissioned art and design projects made almost entirely out of Bloomberg’s waste and presented as part of the 2011 London Design Festival . Design studio Loop.pH ’s ‘Faraday Curtain’ is made from hundreds of meters of discarded electrical cable, stripped of its inner core and conductive shielding and re-threaded into an intricately laced textile mesh. The resultant ephemeral textile enclosure has a soft and sheer surface that shields the interior space from electromagnetic fields. + Loop.pH The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

‘Church Forest’ Documentary Reveals the Unseen World of Tree Canopies in Ethiopia

Comments Off on ‘Church Forest’ Documentary Reveals the Unseen World of Tree Canopies in Ethiopia

‘Church Forest’ is a new documentary project featuring the work of legendary scientist Meg Lowman , and the unseen world of tree canopies set within the endangered treetops of Ethiopia. To date, 95% of Ethiopia’s forest have been eradicated because of deforestation , but remarkably tiny pockets of untouched forests remain and at their centers lie churches. These vestiges of forest have been preserved due in part to church parishioners who have placed symbolic and religious significance on the land. It is in these remaining oases that the ‘Church Forest’ documentary team will climb to the treetops and capture Lowman and her researchers studying the trees and the sacred cultural and environmental practices to go on within. Lowman, known as the mother of canopy research, is the leading treetop canopy scientist. Through decades of work, she has managed to design radical new ways of exploring and sustaining treetops – including hot-air balloons and walkways. Filming for this project is set to begin Janurary 2012, but they still need your help to get produced!
