Goshka Macuga

March 11th, 2009

Goshka Macuga was one of the 4 nominees for the Turner Price 2008. She presented these 3 installations called “Haus der Frau 1″, “Haus der Frau 2″ and “Deutsches Volk – deutsche Arbeit”, beside other work. They are based on the collaboration between Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich during the 20ies and 30ies. “Haus de Frau 1″ & “Haus der Frau 2″ are actually displays to present textiles, just like Mies van der Rohe & Lilly Reich did. “Deutsches Volk – deutsche Arbeit” was actually designed by Mies van der Rohe & Lilly Reich for an exhibtion to promote German glass.

Oloom Public Toilet

January 15th, 2009

This video shows a public toilet in Lausanne, Switserland. It was designed by Oloom and its walls are partly made of liquid crystal glass. Under electric tension they are transparent, out of tension they turn opaque. I’m not sure how many people dare to use this toilet.
It actually reminds me of the dressing rooms at the Prada stores who feature just the same technology.

“Don’t miss a sec” is another weird public toilet. Monica Bonvicini decide to construct it with 2-way mirrors.
