Design firms K&Co and Pliskin Architecture recently commissioned yarn artist Hot Tea (previously) to put his talents towards a pop-up pool installation and renovation for Manhattan Park, an apartment development on Roosevelt Island. Calling the project Asylum, the artist used a beautiful array of bright paint around the deck of the pool in colors that are reminiscent of the setting summer sun. Hot Tea spoke with Brooklyn Street Art about his process for this project.

This piece is inspired by my color field installations that take up both private and public spaces. I love introducing color to spaces that seem neglected or forgotten. …I entitled this piece “Asylum” because the act of creating it pushed my mental and physical endurance so far that I wasn’t sure I could complete the task. When people experience my installations I hope that they will remember the experience far after the moment is gone. My goal for people who are viewing my work is to evoke subconscious feelings one may have forgotten.

An Animated Look at the History of Weapons

A short animation by The Atlantic looks at the history of weapons from the simplest ax to drones and beyond. According to The Atlantic, much of the data included comes from A History of the World in 100 Weapons by author Chris McNab.

From the axe, which originated in 1,000,000 B.C., to today’s killer drones, mankind’s use of weapons has been varied and incredibly inventive. Weapons have changed history and aided in the rise and fall of civilizations. For example, gunpowder, a Chinese invention, led to the development of cannons and guns—revolutionizing warfare in the Middle Ages and beyond.
