Marc Quinn’s “Planet” by itself is spectacle to behold. It was conceived in 2008 to depict his then 7th Month old son as a sleeping baby and appears to be “floating”. He describes it as a paradox – “hugely heavy, yet the bronze appears weightless; overwhelmingly big, yet also an image of vulnerability” and also “It is both a reflection of ourselves and the earth upon which we live.”
The sculpture travelled half the world and is now housed in Meadows, Gardens by the Bay, Singapore.

VOCALOID is a singing voice synthesis program that lets robots sing when you input music and lyrics into it. It initially started out with English and Japanese voices and has since branched out to Spanish, Chinese and Korean. When the developers felt that the voice program needed an image, they created “Hatsune Miku” who gained much popularity thereafter. Check out her holographic concert below!
Christchurch’s Re:Start Mall was built as a temporary shopping space as a devastating earthquake brought their city down in February 2011. 5 years on, these container buildings serve as a tourist attraction and a fresh start to the Kiwis.

How about time traveling? If I could travel back in time to my younger self. What should I have done to change this present? Would it matter much?
