Portland-based Skylab Architecture has designed ‘camp victory’, Nike’s olympic trial pavilion, as a temporary exhibition at the university of Oregon’s Hayward Field. erected over a 17-day period, the three polygonal steel tube frames springing out in different directions are wrapped in translucent white canvas, acting as canopies for diversely themed black display rooms. The structures represents the lightweight construction of their products within a form derived from the kinetic energy of the athletes, reflected throughout every detail of the project. The modified three-lane running track directs pedestrian circulation through the volumes that inform and present the new products in a technological atmosphere of glossy surfaces, LED lights, neon colors, and dynamic spaces that suggest swift fluid movement.

In the course of refurbishment works ART+COM was commissioned to create a signature art installation for the Departure-Check-in hall of Terminal 1 at Singapore Airport. “Kinetic Rain” is composed of two parts, each consisting of 608 rain droplets made of lightweight aluminum covered with copper. Suspended from thin steel ropes above the two opposing escalators, each droplet is moved precisely and seemingly floating by a computer-controlled motor hidden in the halls ceiling. The drops follow a 15-minute, computationally designed choreography where the two parts move together in unison, sometimes mirroring, sometimes complementing, and sometimes responding to each other.

It’s really inspiring to see the versatility (and project choice) of directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, who are mostly known for their horror genre films Paranormal Activity.
Their visual storytelling abilities, coupled with some great pacing and thought provoking music, really captured the claustrophobic & stressful nature of the city while also leaving the viewer with both a cerebral and inspired feeling inside.
Not bad for 3 days and a four man crew!
The reveal of Chris Burden’s entire sculpture at the end was spot on, and not only made me want to visit LACMA to see it in person but also made me want to watch out for this directing duo to see what’s next.
