From ROM for Art + Architecture in Oslo, Norway, on their new, incredible light installation: Submergence is a highly immersive, Mixed Reality experience that challenges perceptions of space and presence. Imagine walking through a virtual world, where pixels on a screen are replaced by thousands of points of light floating in space. Imagine that these points of light create environments, atmospheres and physical spaces that you can enter, affect, immerse yourself in.

An amazing installation series where Brendan Davis took mirroed monolith sculptures, put them in nature, and let the pieces reflect their surrounding that resulted in a surreal, almost mythical experience. Each mirrored "menhir" stood at 6.5 feet tall, which would tower over most people. The works were completed in 2010.

This is epic. As part of the Harbin Ice Festival in China, visitors can partake in the time-honored pastime of LED lit ice sliding. There are a couple things at play here that should be noted. One, you are sliding from an ice castle, and two, you have to slide at night for the full light effect. China, here we come.

Jordan Seiler has an interesting take on advertisement takeover with his “Let me handle this” project. The artist revisited and took over the advertisement space of an old phone booth three times in New York, each time placing a photo of the last takeover. The result of nested images in each other created something of babushka doll effect.

Wies Preijde's woven thread screens operate on several levels, all of which are visually and conceptually stimulating. Simple but harmonious color combinations exist in the abstracted, patterned spaces, resulting in a flattened image that still expands three dimensionally.

We have to applaud this Cloud installation by Rio de Janeiro-based artist Eduardo Coimbra. Not only does the piece looks magical at night, it transcends into daytime just as effectively.
