Jan Kempenaers - Spomenik: The End of HIstory (2006-9)
There are hundreds of these spomeniks (monuments) scattered throughout villages and rural landscapes in the former Yugoslavia.
“Le Corbusier’s concept of ‘radiant city’ may never have gained much traction in the real world, but some of its tropes, especially the idea of enveloping greenspace, can be found in the Spomenik sites. Some of these structures appear to be actual buildings, though devoid of viable internal living spaces. Others resemble futuristic housing along the lines of a ‘tomorrowland’.”

Folded in three layers, it is suspended at 25-metres above the ground, providing a radical bodily experience. (An interview from Milan by Filipa Ramos)
Artist Mathilde Roussel - “Resonances between human body and vegetal are suggested by filling with plant elements, scientifical jars labelled with human body parts. The living ingredients inside the jars change and metamorphose though time. Dew, milk, pollen, sap, branches, grass, bark, etched glass jars. Exhibited at Anatomia Botanica, Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art, Nashville, US.”

INFUSIONS BY CLIFF BRIGGIE
Contemplative photography and transient Art by Cliff Briggie (flickr) - “Infusions” examines the visual dynamics of interpenetrating liquids and how they affect form, color and movement.
