An airplane mobile at the Israeli pavilion, "Air Craft Carrier," a pop-up shop selling discontent with the U.S. Or as the press release puts it, “In this exhibition, one enters a concept store, selling custom-made objects that relate to specific events in the relationship between the United States and Israel."
The Austrian Pavilion "Hands Have No Tears to Flow. Reports From/Without Architecture" by Wolfgang Tschapeller, Rens Veltman and Martin Perktold has mysterious projected figures walking and spinning on the walls. According to the catalog, it is "an interplay of animated, digital figures and thus a social physics."
One of four "Special Mentions," the Russian pavilion, tiled with QRcodes, provides a history of gated Soviet towns and a report on the yet-to-be completed futuristic city of Skolkovo, all read via hundreds of clicks on a borrowed iPad pointed at the codes.
