"We made Durr to explore how we perceive 5 minutes in different situations. By markedly shivering every 5 minutes, it creates a haptic rythm to make us notice the changing tempo of time."
"UTA Flight 772 was a scheduled flight operating from Brazzaville in the Republic of Congo to Paris CDG airport in France. The flight never made it. All on board perished. Eighteen years later, families of the victims gathered at the crash site to build a memorial. The memorial was built mostly by hand and uses dark stones to create a 200-foot diameter circle. The Tenere region is one of the most inaccessible places on the planet. The stones were trucked to the site from over 70 kilometers away. The memorial was built over the course of two months in May and June of 2007. The memorial can be seen from Google Earth and Google Maps."
"When asked whether we’ve reached the point where renderings are indistinguishable from photographs, he replied: "I think we have… The 2013 Ikea catalogue has a surprising number of visualisations in it and most people are none the wiser."
"Guthrie believes that people are now so used to computer imagery thanks to movies and computer games that they can "read" architectural renderings more readily than line drawings or sketches. "It makes un-built architecture more immediate and allows for greater conversation about the built environment," he says.
"He adds: "Most people these days are incredibly familiar with computer generated images (although they are usually in the form of feature films or computer games) but would find it harder to interpret a line drawing or watercolour of a proposed building."
"Boundaries are now becoming so blurred that skilled visualisers are now being employed to make it appear that unbuilt projects were actually realised, he said. "I’ve even had architects in the past ask me to render unbuilt house designs from their archives," he says."
Rayfish claim that customers could create their own bespoke coloured pattern, and then scientists would breed a genetically modified stingrays with the pattern on their skin. “The ability to completely control the pattern that they imply has not been achieved for any animal,” said Lewis.

Paola Antonelli redefining design and the designer’s role in the exhibit “Applied Design” at MoMA:
One of design’s fundamental tasks is to help people deal with change. Designers stand between revolutions and everyday life: they make innovations mangeable and approachable, so that they can be…
"While various companies are developing self-driving-car technology, Google’s is the most advanced. Once a driver activates the autonomous mode, the vehicle’s drive-by-wire system transfers control of the brake, gas, and steering to an onboard computer. The vehicle’s roof-mounted lidar (or light detection and ranging) unit probes 360 degrees with 64 laser beams, taking more than a million measurements per second. This data forms a high-resolution map (accurate to about 11 cm) of the car’s surroundings. Prebuilt navigation maps indicate static infrastructure, such as telephone poles, crosswalks, and traffic lights, which enables software to quickly identify moving objects, like pedestrians and cyclists. These targets are clustered together and tracked so that algorithms can process the traffic situation and plot a path safely through it."
