Two wonders of creativity
If you get the chance watch 'I'm here'. It's 30min short film by Spike Jonze and is only available to watch online. It's very touching, quirky and original - as you would expect from Spike.
Also check out the UK's pavilion as part of the Shangai World Expo. It's designed by Thomas Heatherwick. The huge six storey high object is formed from slender transparent rods, which extend from the structure and quiver in the breeze. During the day, the rods draw in the daylight to illuminate the interior. At night, light sources at the interior end of each rod allow the whole structure to glow. Inside the giant dandelion-esque object there is a 'seed cathedral' with each of the rods holding a single seed. The pavilion sits on what looks like an massive piece of crumpled paper that once wrapped the biodiverse object.
