EKKLESIA

The Fallas festival took place in Valencia earlier this year and visitors were treated to an impressive installation called Ekklesia by the artist collective Pink Intruder. This towering piece of installation features metallic-colored cardboard tubes that sit atop a mosaic design of 96,000 wooden pieces. The colorful mosaic pieces were based on the designs of […]

Stellar

STELLAR

This isn’t the Battleship Galactica at Universal Studios, Singapore. This is the work of Baptiste Debombourg who has transformed an ordinary public square in France into the site of an incredible art installation. Titled Stellar, the piece utilizes the very objects that normally occupy the outdoor space—cafe chairs—and stacks 1,200 of them to form a dynamic roller […]

The Beach

THE BEACH

The Beach features an immersive installation by experimental design firm Snarkitecture. The 10,000-square-foot space in the National Building Museum is filled with an “ocean” of one million translucent polyethylene balls and a carpeted deck that’s complete with lounge chairs. Although the installation presents a beach-like setting, it uses creative liberties to interpret the idea of an oceanside […]

FACTICIUS MACTARE (ARTIFICIAL KILLING MACHINE)

Artificial Killing Machine is an autonomous interactive mechanical installation by Jonathan Fletcher Moore. This time based work accesses a public database on U.S. military drone strikes. When a drone strike occurs, the machine activates, and fires a children’s toy cap gun for every death that results. The raw information used by the installation is then printed. […]

BANG BANG. HE SHOT ME DOWN.

In this optical illusion-type work titled “Damage”, artist Michael Murphy paints 1,200 ping pong balls black and then suspends them from a height. The installation snaps into place when viewed from just the right spot, cleverly engages not just the audience sight but also their perception towards gun laws in America. As the visitor walks around the suspended ping pong […]

COUSIN IT.

Daniel Rozin’s anthropomorphic “PomPom Mirror” features a synchronized array of 928 spherical faux fur puffs. Organized into a three-dimensional grid of beige and black, the sculpture is controlled by hundreds of motors that build silhouettes of viewers using computer-vision. Along its surface, figures appear as fluffy animal-like representations within the picture plane, which is made […]

UNCOMFORTABLE SILENCE CAN BE SO LOUD

Yes its part of a larger lyrics by one of Madonna’s Song but this was what first came into my mind when I first got in touch with Swiss artist Romain Crelier’s La Mise en Abîme. Installed on the floor of the Bellelay Abbey Church in Switzerland back in 2013, this mesmerising installation consists of two shallow pools of recycled […]

CATHEDRAL OF THE JUNK KING

This is a fascinating and touching glimpse into the ongoing art installation of Austin, Texas resident Vince Hannemann (aka the Junk King) who since 1989 has been collecting thousands of discarded objects and turning them into a giant cathedral of junk. In 2010 the city closed the structure deeming it unsafe and wanted Junk King to obtain proper […]

BLURRING THE BOUNDARIES

“My aim is to create each and every project in both worlds. Material world or not is less important. In the case of most projects, the conceptual strength will remain exactly the same and the spectators will experience just a minimal change in their mental perception. Of course there is, in a certain way, a […]
