Flying houses, pyramidal buildings: crazy visions of the future imagined by a North Korean architect
[CONCEPT] Presented last year at the Kobe Bienniale, Garden is an immersive installation found inside a shipping container. The artwork is made of 1100 triangular mirrors that bend and reflect light. As he steps in the container, the visitor is completely immersed in a life-size kaleidoscope.
Land art reinvented: The projections of “Luminance Interventions” connect nature and geometric patterns
[CONCEPT] Wandering through the art galleries found on Google Art Project, Mario Santamaria discovered that many artworks were actually blurred for copyright reasons. In his "Righted Museum", he compiled views from museums around the world featuring these hidden masterpieces.
[CONCEPT] In his series "Space and Energy", Luca Zanier is documenting a hidden world which has nonetheless a huge impact on our lives: the nuclear plants and other facilities producing the energy we use every day.
[CONCEPT] So many new technologies are on the verge of disrupting our daily lives but are not kind ready just yet for a big roll out. Fernando Barbella thinks ahead and already imagines the curious signs we will probably see everyday in a near future.

[CONCEPT] What if virtual reality was the answer to the farming of free range chicken? The idea might seem far-fetched but it is the concept Austin Stewart is currently selling throughout Iowa. Hear him out before getting all upset.
[CONCEPT] After reading a report from the FAO on how insects could be an answer to the world hunger problem, Búi Bjarmar Aðalsteinsson decided to focus his graduation piece on living matter and the transforming power found in nature. The FlyFactory is an ecological food production concept that integrates all the steps of a sustainable breeding process into one single unit
[CONCEPT] For her Master's degree project, Judit Eszter Karpati created a piece of electronic fabric that can change color. To do so, Karpati created an installation made of an Arduino connected to a piece of fabric that was woven with nichrome wires.
URME Surveillance, wear a mask of an artist’s face to protect your identity from facial-recognition software
[CONCEPT] Leo Salvaggio decided to fight against the ubiquitous surveillance by creating an artistic project which protects the privacy of the public. URME Surveillance consists in two different masks (a 3D-printed resin prosthetic and a paper version) representing Leo's face and a open-source software that can replace faces in videos.
[CONCEPT] 'Invisible' is made of two different sprays that will make 100% invisible, DNA-wise. The first spray, "Erase", destroys 99.5% of the genetic material left behind while the second one, "Replace", takes care the remaining 0.5% by adding DNA material form other sources.

[CONCEPT] Gravity was invented as a way to free the creation process by letting users easily sketch in 3D. Made of a pen and a pad, the tool works with any augmented reality headset. The user can then draw more intuitively, free from any screen or computer.
