Der ehemalige Flakbunker in Wilhelmsburg ist zum Symbol des Klimaschutzkonzeptes Erneuerbares Wilhelmsburg geworden. Das seit Kriegsende nahezu ungenutzte Monument wurde im Rahmen der IBA Hamburg saniert und zu einem regenerativen Kraftwerk mit Großwärmespeicher ausgebaut.
Singapore-based artist Keng Lye creates near life-like sculptures of animals relying on little but paint, resin and a phenomenal sense of perspective. Lye slowly fills bowls, buckets, and boxes with alternating layers of acrylic paint and resin, creating aquatic animal life that looks so real it could almost pass for a photograph.
If a work of art was described as being “alive,” most people probably would assume this meant it was an especially inspiring piece. Perhaps they would take it to mean the art was a stunning work of realism, or that it had the power to move in profound ways. They probably wouldn’t take the description literally.
