Lighting Giants

An industrial shipyard in Croatia has been transformed into a work of art by architectural lighting designer Dean Skira. For his installation Lighting Giants, Skira arranged spotlights to create a light performance synchronised to music that turns eight cranes into colourful folded origami.
He came up with the idea in 2000 when he heard the town of Pula was considering relocating the shipyard, but it has taken since then to collect enough funding and gain the support of authorities
Two epic events are unfolding in this month of June!
First, the World Cup. It’s just around the corner. I see the signs everywhere – more so in the mornings, when I have my daily Coke!

The 20th edition of the FIFA World Cup heads to Brazil between June 12 and July 13. Sixty-four matches played by 32 national teams and the whole world will go crazy.
Second, the Transformers movie. Official Malaysian release date: June 26. The fourth installment titled “Transformers: Age of Extinction”.
The Transformers began life as a succession of animated television shows, depicting a war among giant robots that can transform into vehicles and other objects. The entire series was based upon the Diaclone and Microman toy lines originally created by Japanese toy manufacturer Takara, which then developed into the Transformers toy line by American company Hasbro. Today, the Transformers have become even bigger and more successful because of the movie franchise.
The Megamall @ MidValley showcased these herculean robots – check out these photos:

For sure, June is going to be an extraordinary month!
