Graduate students at the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts of Washington University in St. Louis are bringing to life a cloud of plastic bubbles in a show they’re designing, building, and calling ACCUMULUS—a portmanteau of the words ‘Accumulation, Cummulus, and Us.’
A luminous, arched pavilion in Ohio aims to highlight the potential of 3D fabrication techniques, and to so it’s mounting a Promethean stunt.

Charles Long’s latest exhibition CATALIN—aptly named after a toxic plastic material fabricated in the 1930s—uses a multi-media approach to simulate a feeling of impending doom. In this Gesamtkunstwerk, Long combines sculpture, film, music, fragrance, theater, performance, and grand spectacle to create a mystical and magical Wagnerian world.
