Praxis Landscape recently installed Light Field II, a temporary art installation in ?airler Park? (Park of Poets), a public space built to commemorate the legacy of great poets who once lived in Istanbul’s Besiktas district. To celebrate those poets and bring attention to the park at night, the designers added a series of glowing orbs created as an abstract interpretation of poetry. “The installation was designed as an abstract reflection of the verses of poems that obtain a whole new identity in the visitor flow,” write the Praxis Landscape. “The rejuvenated verses, and the richness of emotions they evoke in visitors, were transformed into lighting objects that were placed in the most visible corner of the park.” https://vimeo.com/167612092 + Praxis Landscape The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Amazon River Dolphin Populations in Rapid Decline

Photo: JorgeBRAZIL / cc Of all the remarkable species that inhabit the Amazon river basin, few are as iconic or as threatened as Amazon river dolphins.
