Studio Swine have created ‘Can City’- a project based in São Paulo where a mobile foundry operates around the city’s streets. The foundry smelts aluminum cans using waste vegetable oil collected from local cafes as fuel. The molds and the finished pieces are all made on location, turning the street into an improvised manufacturing line http://www.studioswine.com/can-city.
The Wonderful Caddis Worm: Sculptural Work in Collaboration with Trichoptera
Since the early 1980s, artist Hubert Duprat has been utilizing insects to construct some of his “sculptures.” By removing caddis fly larvae http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caddisfly from their natural habitat and providing them with precious materials, he prompts them to manufacture cases that resemble jewelers’ creations. Caddis flies live near ponds and streams. As larvae, they live underwater and make wearable tubes from local materials, such as twigs, sand, stones, or snail shells. The items they select are bound with silk and the larva hooks itself inside with the end of its abdomen. Serbia could be sitting on ‘several millions’ worth of gold reserves http://goo.gl/wq5dKN
