Comments Off on Horn-shaped sculptures let you listen to the music of the environment

Dutch artist Jeroen Bisscheroux’s latest installation engages one of the senses that we often take for granted: hearing. Located on the Vincent van Gogh College in Assen, the Netherlands, the artwork, called TOON, comprises three giant maroon-colored conical horns. The horn-shaped acoustic structures are connected together by tubes and joined at the center by a seat, where the listener can sit and listen to different sounds emanating from three different locations on campus. There are sounds of people playing from the nearby sports fields, passersby from the adjacent park and gymnasium, as well as the sounds of people and children leaving school. + Jeroen Bisscheroux The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Canadian Government Tries To Silence Artist Franke James

Treehugger has been pleased to show the work of Franke James a number of times; delivers a strong environmental message in a humourous and trenchant style.

One would think that they had bigger fish to fry, but that didn’t stop the government from stepping in to stomp her, with one top official saying: “Who was the idiot who approved an art show by that woman, Franke James?” So they phoned the corporate s… Read the full story on TreeHugger

Comments Off on Is Laser Etching a Safer Alternative to Stickers for Labeling Produce?

Photo courtesy of Sunkist I’ve always been curious about how green it is to pick up a piece of organic fruit that has two or three different stickers pasted onto it. Each piece of fruit in the pile sporting several stickers has got to add up in terms of material waste and a little boost in the carbon footprint. So, would laser etching be a greener, safer alternative
