missed.



Just another one of those totally awesome installations that are floating throughout the world. This one? Straight from Australia, specifically displayed at the Melbourne National Museum.

Created by Duke Albada, 'Missed' can be explained in a simple paragraph:

A memorial for all visitors to temporarily claim as their own.
The visitors express themselves via writing on a sheet of steamed up-misted glass.
The writing slowly dissolves as the steam reclaims territory.

Man, those Aussies have got it down.

design is inevitable. celebrated. design for mankind.
