Picks of the Week

From a limitless puzzle and a large-scale art installation to new Tom Dixon containers and shorts made from recycled ocean plastic, these are the VISI team’s top picks of the week.

1. Infinite Earth Nervous System Puzzle

“This incredible puzzle can be rearranged in an unlimited number of times,” explains Content Producer Michaela Stehr. “The theory behind this mind-boggling puzzle is an icosahedral map projection, breaking the boundaries of a traditional sphere.”

2. Sora Versailles by Miya Ando

“Commissioned by Faena Art, this large-scale installation by visual artist Miya Ando sees one of Miami’s most historic buildings wrapped in clouds,” says Online Editor Lindi Brownell Meiring. “Using printed mesh, the artwork depicts both the sunrise and the sunset on each of the building’s four sides.”

3. Sea Change

“Paging through the book Sea Change (Quivertree, R850), with beautiful underwater photographs taken in the kelp forest along the Cape coastline, I was amazed by the diversity of this ecosystem,” says Copy Editor Kay-Ann van Rooyen. “It’s a virtually undiscovered wild wonderland right on our doorstep.”
