Growing Structure: Kagome Sandpit in Vienna.
Kagome is a special weaving technique as well as a Japanese children’s song. It’s also the name of a children’s sand pit in the outdoor playing area of the Vienna MuseumsQuartier. The sandpit created last summer is enclosed by planted willow cuttings. It was designed and developed by PPAG architects, together with Julia Stefanie Meyer and Simon Oberhammer.
The Sound of the Earth
Artist Lotte Geeven traveled to what is perhaps the deepest hole on Earth, a 5.5-mile deep rift in the Czech Republic, and listened. This is the sound of the Earth, most likely seismic waves converted into the audible range. I find no fault in this music :)
We live on a creaking, grinding, swelling, shrinking, popping, and shaking blob of molten magma and magnetic metal surrounded by a thin candy shell. Never forget that.
Now that I think about it, Earth and I must be related because MY belly makes this same sound if you put your ear up to it. (via Verge)
