crossconnectmag : Daniel Arsham plays around with paper, walls and people. New York based artist Daniel Arsham straddles the line between art, architecture and performance. Raised in Miami, Arsham attended the Cooper Union in New York City where he received the Gelman Trust Fellowship Award in 2003. Architecture is a prevalent subject throughout his work; environments with eroded walls and stairs going nowhere, landscapes where nature overrides structures, and a general sense of playfulness within existing architecture. Arsham makes architecture do things it is not supposed to do, mining everyday experience for opportunities to confuse and confound our expectations of space and form. Simple yet paradoxical gestures dominate his sculptural work: a facade that appears to billow in the wind, a figure wrapped up in the surface of a wall, a contemporary object cast in volcanic ash as if it was found on some future archaeological site.

Stress Ball Measures Your Stress Level And Translates Into Physical Output

How stress are you? You can measure the level with Stress Ball . Designed by Simone Schramm, this unique ball can determine your stress level by measuring the skin conduction with an external sensor. Any result is then translated into an analogue, physical transformation of a spherical surface through changes between a smooth and a rough texture. Touching the surface means that you can experience the measurement in a haptic way. You can tell the intensity of the stress level from the length of the nobs. By actively touching, pressing or stroking the object, user can starts to sharpen their tactile perceptual capacity and to associate different surface conditions with their stress level. This ball is reproduction of your stress by corresponding to the human body perception, it delivers adequate space for innate intuition. When the colored nobs expand, the movement changes the uni-colored surface into a multicolored sculpture, this effect underlines emotional accessibility and the three
