LOS ANGELES’ BLACK HOLE

You could argue it’s astrophysically impossible to have a black hole within a black hole (we kid, we kid, LA peeps). Nonetheless, architects Benjamin Ball and Gaston Nogues (from Materials & Applications ) have managed to reconstruct a featherweight rendition of “the deadliest force in the Universe” as a shade structure which hovers over M&A’s office on Silverlake blvd in Los Angeles. The shiny Mylar vortex has been slowing down traffic in front of 1619 Silverlake Blvd, as passersby stop to get a better look.
This looks very cool, and I wish I were in LA to see it for myself. The installation is only up until November 26th, so check it out if you live in the area.
