daniel arsham and alex mustonen are the guys behind snarkitecture, an edgy collaborative practice based in new york city that operates in territories between the disciplines of art and architecture, often reinterpreting contexts to make architecture perform the unexpected. the duo recently visited são paulo to attend the annual made design fair and created two similar installations along the way that make use of waste material of the electrolux production facility in brazil. the installation at casa electrolux is still on display and features a total of 500 freezer insulation bins that are meticulously suspended from the ceiling. the dangling boxes radically change the topography of the exhibition space, and due to the fact they're placed at different heights they also subtly play with light and suggest movement [on through sep 8]. location: rua colômbia 157 [jardim américa].
