• Land of Giants turns power lines into works of art

    Most of us take the aesthetic nature of power lines and pylons for granted. In fact, it's hard to remember a time before the things crisscrossed the landscape. That's why we were stoked when we came across this concept by Massachusetts-based architects Choi+Shine. Part infrastructure, part public art project, The Land of Giants would "[transform] mundane electrical pylons into statues on the Icelandic landscape," by modifying existing steel-framed tower designs to create human-shaped towers that are repositioned for a wide variety of expressions (a number of which can be seen after the break). We love this idea, and we hope it gets implemented somewhere, if only to blow the minds of the people that will have to rebuild civilization after the impending Robot Apocalypse.
