Building up a Soft Ruin
Some time ago I spent a few hours on Second Life, playing around with the "make physical" tool, trying to make a Soft Ruin that falls down. At some point a fire broke out, which was perfect for a building that falls down over and over again...
Concrete Islands, curated by Elias Redstone and featuring works by Andreas Angelidakis, Iwan Baan, Frederic Chaubin, mounir fatmi and Niklas Goldbach at Analix-Forever Paris.
I spoke at PROqm bookstore as part of the book launching of
