    If you visited Governor’s Island in New York last summer you most certainly saw the billowing, cloud-like structure that sits in the middle of the lawn. …

    It’s not until you get up close that you realize it’s made from many, many plastic bottles stringed together. “53,780 used plastic bottles,” says designer Jason Klimoski, “the number thrown away in NYC in just 1 hour.” Klimoski and his team at STUDIO KCA collected the bottles – a combination of milk jugs and water bottles – and lashed them together to create “Head in the Clouds,” a pavilion people can walk into, sit inside, and contemplate just how much plastic is thrown away every day.

    The structure … is now looking for its next home. If you’re interested in having this in your back yard get in touch with the designers.

    Is this the ultimate “pallet hack”?

    Tomas Moravec has created many performative works of sculpture, installation and video art since he made this Duchamp-meets-Alÿs piece in 2008, but the video went up just a few months ago.

    The brief description notes that Bratislavan trams run on felicitously narrow 1000mm-wide tracks: “A new transport vehicle brings change into the spatial perspective of a passenger in motion and generally changes the life of the city, through which the pallet can run, guided by a map of the city lines.”
