Heatherwick's UK Pavillion for the 2010 Shanghai Expo-
The Seed Cathedral is a 20-metre high building, constructed from 60,000 transparent 7.5-metre long optical strands, each of which has embedded within its tip a seed. The interior is silent and illuminated only by the daylight that has filtered past each seed through each optical hair.
The studio’s design has three main aims: the first is to be a pavilion whose architecture is a direct manifestation of the content it exhibits; the second is to provide significant public open space in which visitors can relax; the third is to find a simple idea that is strong enough to stand out amidst the busy-ness of the hundreds of competing pavilions.

"the mirror as a psychic receptor, a magical portal to visionary and ecstatic states, through self-reflection and visualization....auras of glamour, artifice and fantasy are used in a hypnotic, meditative way, creating pathways towards transcendence and personal gnosis. The collages in the show are composed of elements which were also used in the video, creating a reflexive cast of characters and symbols, which mirror back and forth, referencing each other."
"It's like stepping in to the field of my unconsciousness where you find various different characters wearing unique head pieces".This film is exquisite. It will paint your brain matter.
