Adrian Koh. A collaborative art installation by Dream Interiors x Elixr.
Inspired largely by Cappellini’s colourful and playful approach to design, one is invited to explore and dream colourfully.
Each origami butterfly in the circular path represents a dream in various stages - the emergence of an idea to the idea being in transit and then taking flight. Every butterfly has its own character and destination, but when flying together, new dreams are created and celebrated.
The use of translucent paper allows light to pass through the wings of the origami butterflies, thus creating a beautiful weave of colours against Dream Interiors’ stark white furniture collection.

Arch Department Installation for Wentworth Architecture Review
Drawing inspiration from Edgar Allen Poe’s short story “The Raven,” former playwright Will Ryman creates his own bird out of thousands of nails, proving his mastery of the arts forevermore. The artist’s Bird sculpture stands 12 feet high, consisting of 1,500 nails varying in length and size to form a giant bird holding an equally massive rose in its beak. Scale plays a big role in Ryman’s latest series of works, which all happen to utilize much of its exhibition space.
Bit.Fall by Julius Popp
The words which the water droplets form are all sourced from current internet news sources.
“The speed at which information is sourced, exchanged and updates in our modern society is almost inconceivable, and more ephemeral than ever before. The work BIT.FALL translates this abstract process into an experience for the senses and is a metaphor for these contemporary currents of information.”
A Book from the Sky. 1987-91.
Mixed media installation / Hand-printed books and scrolls printed from blocks inscribed with ”false” characters.
An installation that took Xu Bing over four years to complete, A Book from The Sky is comprised of printed volumes and scrolls containing four thousand ”false” Chinese characters invented by the artist and then painstakingly hand-cut onto wooden printing blocks.
Julia Barello’s swirling wall installation titled Swoop features a swarm of birds cut out of MRI film. The circling silhouettes create a galactic spiral against the white wall, reversing the colors naturally depicting outer space. There’s something very organic and universal about the piece that is clearly inspired by nature. It is also interesting to think that the flock of birds are made of a medium that is typically used in medical technology to record and analyze a human’s internal organs. Perhaps there is an underlying message of connectivity.

Fashion department store Marks & Spencer launched its project called Shwopping, a portmanteau of shopping and swapping, in an effort to recycle clothing and decrease waste. The project, which they refer to as a revolution, seeks to draw attention to the amount of clothing that’s discarded every day in the UK and make a conscious effort to reverse this wasteful habit. The cause claims that approximately 10,000 articles of clothing go to landfills every five minutes.
