As described by the creators

“Built in 2010, Mirazozo makes extensive use of an ‘illuminated seam’ feature where luminous seam lines create a scintillating lattice of light.

The pattern of these neon-like strips induce the viewer’s gaze to shift between different perceptions of the same view – an effect one encounters in the contemplative geometric surface design of Islamic art and architecture.

Mirazozo’s center dome is the largest open space structure that Architects of Air has built – one particularly suitable for hosting performances. Mirazozo was conceived to be very modular and to permit compact configurations.”

Photo series from the famous Pavilion of Spain at the Expo of Shanghai in 2010, designed by Benedetta Tagliabue / EMBT.

// The pavilion was a steel structure covered with twisted wicker panels. The wicker covers were woven by Spanish handcrafters in different patterns and different colors of wicker. The panels finally were covered by a special waterproofing material. They were also contributing to the thermal comfort of the pavilion taking into account the local climate.

Tangled up

chiharushiotainsilence2 When I first set my eyes on Japan-born, Berlin-based artist Chiharu Shiota's work, I wasn't sure if I was looking at an installation or a dark charcoal illustration. Though the piece echoes sketch-like imagery, it is in fact an installation piece involving a burnt piano in a room ravaged by black wool. The work known as In Silence is inspired by Shiota's own traumatic memories as a child, having witnessed her neighbor's house burn down. The charred piano is a direct memory of her neighbor's grand piano blazed up in smoke.  There is a melancholic aura that hovers throughout the incinerated room filled with singed furniture. The miles of thread woven in, around, and through each item within the space adds a feeling of entrapment. The way it engulfs the room's furnishings encapsulates the destructive and overwhelming nature of flames that have possessed one's material properties.

Photography of an installation created by Japanese artist Chiharu Shiota.

/// The installation, named ” In Silence”, was inspired by one of the artist’s personal traumatic memories as a child, having witnessed her neighbor’s house burning down. The pieces tangled up in black thread are echoing a sketch-like imagery and the burnt piano is in fact a direct memory of the artist, as it resembles her neighbor’s piano blazed up in smoke.
