Jacqueline Surdell is an artist living and working in Los Angeles, California. Her work explores macramé-knotting techniques as a type of connective drawing device, a way to create structure and define space. It is a transformative technique combining the reedy and slack with volume and shape. The performative, repetitive nature of the technique imbues an element of time as much as it speaks of space and volume.
Tectonics of Transparency is a glass structure made by Cristina Parreño Alonso Architecture. Its geometry changes in appearance according to the position of the viewer. The architectural installation aims to generate high compressive strength as a vehicle to produce spatial environments that are specific to the glass medium. The use of glass as the only material touches on issues of perception, privacy, transparency, light and opacity. In turn, the artifact has the potential to exude multiple interpretations.
Marking his first work in Paris, japanese architect Sou Fujimoto has created a monumental installation in Paris – Jardins des Tuileries, composed of suspended metal cubes and plants, for the FIAC art fair.

The american artist Phillip K Smith III created the installation “Reflection Field” for the annual Coachella music festival in California. The lighting sculpture was made of shiny cuboids that by day provided a series of mirrors, but by night were transformed into neon towers of light, to offer revellers a place for contemplation.
