On Tuesday, a bonsai tree boldly went where no bonsai tree has gone before.

Azuma Makoto, a 38-year-old artist based in Tokyo, launched two botanical arrangements into orbit: “Shiki 1,” a Japanese white pine bonsai tree suspended from a metal frame, and an untitled arrangement of orchids, lilies, hydrangeas, and irises.

Pair this with that time Anamanaguchi sent a slice of pizza into space and the past couple of years have been good for orbital art. After being launched from the site of Burning Man in Nevada, the botanical rigs traveled to about 90,000 feet before descending back to Earth, where they were found around five miles from the launch site. —MN

Have the various space agencies ever left plants suspended in the vacuum for extended periods of time, and if so, do you have information on what happens to them?

Cities Reassembled | Mister Mourao | Tumblr | Socks Studio

Mister Mourao (aka Vasco Mourao) is a Portuguese architect turned into a freelance illustrator with (as he explains) “a tendency for obsessive drawing“. His methodical and detailed illustrations represent real or invented structures and buildings always from different perspectives. The buildings are sometimes exploded or distorted, fragmented and reassembled. The simplicity of the black line contrasts with the richness of the compositions.

In April 2012 we produced a cover on 3D printing entitled “The third industrial revolution” it inspired Kae Woei Lim, a designer at XYZ Workshop, to actually recreate it in three dimensions. The results are superb. 

They even have a time-adjusted chart…
