for the duration of the bruges triennial – on until 16 september 2018 – architecture studio OBBA, in collaboration with local architects dertien 12, has installed a pavilion that floats on one of the city’s numerous canals, inviting people to walk on it, rest, reflect, and enjoy the water. among the public artworks and installations that have emerged around the historic city, including selgascano’s organic structure and STUDIOKCA’s plastic whale, ‘the floating island’ blurs the boundary between everyday life and art, ‘making a calm change in the familiar landscapes of bruges.’

The Resomator stands monolithic in the corner of a room on the ground floor of a building at UCLA. It’s as sterile as a hospital in here, but every patient is already dead. This is the penultimate stage of their time under the care of Dean Fisher, director of the Donated Body Program at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. After dissection, bodies are wheeled in under crisp sheets for disposal in Fisher’s alkaline hydrolysis machine, which turns them into liquid and pure white bone. Later, their air-dried bones will be pulverized and scattered off the coast by nearby Camp Pendleton, the Marine Corps base, where they will float and then disperse, because pure calcium phosphate dissolves very slowly. From a Coast Guard helicopter, it looks like drug lords flushing their stash.

A team of researchers from MIT has come up with a novel way to convert temperature fluctuations into electrical power. Instead of requiring two different temperature inputs at the same time, this ‘thermal resonator’ system takes advantage of the swings in ambient temperature that occur during the day-night cycle.

A brand new power-generating system from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers creates energy “out of what seems like nothing,” according to chemical engineering professor Michael Strano. Their system, which they’re calling a thermal resonator, harnesses daily swings in ambient temperature, potentially enabling remote sensing systems to operate for years without batteries or other power sources.

Martin Parr is renowned globally for his own distinctive documentary photography, which focuses especially on the minutiae of everyday life, often overlooked by others. As both President of Magnum Photos and as a collector, he has also always been a great champion of the work of others.

Shawna Peterson bends glass tubes for a living. She makes neon art, and has put glowing faces on a giant wall of recyclables for artist Erik Otto, bent two-inch circles for a wall sized circuit board for Dolby Labs, and created a sign that simply says "Wash Me" for a San Francisco laundromat. The shining remnants of her past and future projects can be seen scattered throughout her workspace. It lies on the border of Oakland, California, and neighboring Emeryville, just blocks from Pixar Studios in an area dotted with warehouses, workshops, and art studios.
