Shanghai is hosting the World's fair this year. There are alot of very interesting national pavilions being constructed (discounting the very lame US entry). The one that has really caught my eye is the UK pavilion which has a "seed cathedral". It is a giant cube reminiscent of a dandelion which has thousands of clear acrylic rods which act as fiber optics transferring light to the interior of the box. Each rod is ended with a different seed encased in acrylic.
Go here for picture of it and some of the other pavilions: http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/2010/03/shanghai_prepares_for_expo_201.html (it is where I got the above pictures)
So I was inspired to take some dandelion pics
during which I was ambushed by Calliope
