BAM Art Installation Open May 29 in Belgium
BAM's garden and video installation "Garden Game" opened at the 2009 Secret Gardens Festival in Kortrijk, Beglium. Experimenting with how to make a garden remotely, a game of dice creates a maze of chaotically oriented hedge walls. The game is played by local teams of artists and builders who follow emailed rules. A video of the game views the installation as a stage for living: "The Chaotic Rise and Fall of the White Masked Man and Other Common Acts" is on exhibit at the Broelmuseum and a preview may be watched on You Tube - Kanaal van koenmoerman.

China has embraced ballistic weather modification programs, employing as many as 35-37,000 and spending US $260m between 1995-2003. Shells, rockets, aircraft and hilltop burners are used to “seed” clouds with silver iodide or other chemicals that can either disperse moisture or make it fall earlier than it otherwise would.
An era of Architecture comes to an end with famous buildings burning around the world. It’s time for the landscape to become the new urban iconography.
