‘Afasia 1’ is an art installation by Arcangelo Sassolino. Maybe you’ve guessed it, this is a nitrogen-powered sculpture that shoots empty beer bottles against a wall at 600km/hr inside a metal cage. I wouldn’t get to close if I were you, but you can see it in action at the Superdome exhibition at Palais de Tokyo in Paris.

Stained Glass is a project by Posterchild, he does streetart. He placed a variation of the Pixelator over HD screens installed over subway entrances in New York. It basically difusses the light of the screen and turns the video ads in an animated stained glass piece. Blah blah blah … watch the video.
Pia Lundqvist is a Swedish glass artist, her artworks are quite strange. She used all sorts of found objects to create these ‘guns’.
‘Passive Aggressive Anger Release Machine’ is an interactive sculpture by Yarisal and Kublitz. Experience the most satisfying feeling when a piece of China breaks into million pieces . All you have to do is insert a coin, and a piece of China will Slowly move forwards and fall into the bottom of the machine, breaking, and leaving you happy and relieved of anger.
‘The Level Tunnel‘ is a project for Level Vodka, designed by Hussein Chalayan. The tunnel a 15 meter long, 5 meter high, glass installation that captures the essence of Level Vodka. Visitors can walk through the tunnel blindfolded or experience it from outside. Chalayan used sound, scent and touch to create something unique. The sound for example, is created by a flute made from a vodka bottle. And when a visitor is going through the tunnel, his position is tracked and he can smell the scent of lemon and cedar as he goes further into the tunnel. When the visitor leaves the tunnel, he can of course taste the vodka. All these senses together should give the visitor an impression of what Level Vodka stands for. It is currently on display in Mexico City but it will travel to Paris and Athens later this year.
