Matteo Capobianco, aka ufocinqueborn in Novara in 1981 is a graphic designer and street artist living and working between Milan and Novara. Despite of his age, he’s already an affirmed name in the european street-art scene, and he’s often busy collaborating with companies, art galleries and creative events.
The work of Ufo5 is characterized by the huge presence of symbolisms, labyrinths and magic signs; he uses to paint our society’s virtues and vices through metaphores and symbolical images, often using the evocative power of the lone black and white.
A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”
