Worn books, aged leather, hidden paths, striking vistas, and displaced machinery- an accumulation of images from, inspired by, and relevant to the ages of Myst.

Flame (Gate) | Yochai Matos

Gorgeous light installation that makes it look like there’s a rift in reality or, alternatively, like you’ve stumbled upon the fissure from Riven.

The surreality of Andy Goldsworthy’s work matched with his love of nature have always seemed appropriately Myst-esque to me- finding unexpected order in nature.

One of the most talked about installations at the 12th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice was Cloudscapes. Japanese architect Tetsuo Kondo and a German climate engineering firm Transsolar came together to put a cloud in a large interior space called the Corderie, a 316-meter-long space where ropes for Venetian ships were made. Visitors to the exhibit can walk through the cloud via a circular ramp that ascended 4.3 meters high. This feat of climate engineering is produced by blowing three layers of air into the space at different temperatures. Cool dry air at the bottom layer keeps the cloud up; warm, humid air in the middle creates the dense fog; hot, dry air sits on top.
