If artist–slash–engineering genius Mark Andreas had his way, the Transformers would be in charge of this withering planet, spreading seed and water as they fend off the conniving politicians and deceptive media convoluting our transcendence from toxic planet. Andreas's giant, dangerous wind-up toys, at Leo Kesting's meatpacking outlet through April 27, embody this conundrum: each of them a design dream to behold, but in the wrong hands they could transform the room into a chaos built for the next Will Smith blockbuster. —Emma Pearse
