In one of the most elaborate sets in the world, British film production company Pinewood Studio captures breathtaking shots in a tank filled with 1.2 million liters (317,000 gallons) of water. The underwater stage, which opened in 2005, has been used for a huge number of TV commercials, music videos and films, including The Bourne Ultimatum, Atonement, Elizabeth and Casino Royale.
Larvae-made jewelry (video link below): These beautiful pieces are the unusual collaboration between French artist Hubert Duprat and a busy little crew of caddis fly larvae... the insects manufacture cases to protect their developing bodies ...he carefully prods them out of their own natural cases and re-houses them in aquariums filled with substitute materials...When the larvae develops its wings it abandons the case. http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2014/07/hubert-duprat-caddisflies/
Indoor Clouds! Dutch artist Berndnaut Smilde controls the weather and creates beautiful indoor clouds with the help of a smoke machine. Fog machine emits dense vapor / smoke that makes contact with sprayed water and forms small white cloud. Miniature cloud floats through the room and quickly disappears.
Lovingly put together by Bompas & Parr who have faced quite a few challenges to get this off the ground. Getting to the roof itself requires a special lift covered in classic books including Treasure Island and Fear Of Flying. The roof itself is below a specially-built platform upon which a boating lake (with twelve boats, a waterfall, a cocktail booth and a lifeguard) and a cocktail bar have been mounted.
Yes, it seems crazy or totally fictional, the appearance of a cloud in a closed room is possible, thanks to the Dutch artist Berndnaut Smilde! What looks like magic, turns out to be a carefully calculated project made possible by a certain level of humidity, temperature and special lighting. This precise mixture (& the use of a smoke machine) allows the formation of a cloud inside an enclosed space ~ a surreal spectacle!
