In the past week I’ve been emailing with the extremely talented and charming Jessica Walsh. I’m sure you’ve seen her work before and I’m excited to announce that she’s agreed to have a cyber sit down with us at the cool kids table. But, like everyone else, is really busy at the moment so I’ve decided to feature some of her work before we do the interview.
Her tactile approach to design is easily lovable and makes me want to jump on set. Check out the images after the jump, and there’s plenty more on her awesome portfolio site.
These installation pieces by Gabriel Dawe are stunning. Consisting only of wood, thread and nails, this one above was installed at the Dallas Contemporary here in Texas. They remind me a lot of the two glass pane 3d installations we had mentioned before.
Interestingly bizarre work from Canadian maker Liam Crockard. His body of work consists of various mediums that he utilizes to produce wild collages and other wordly installations.
We dream of what it’d be like to touch the clouds we fly through and stare at as children but fog never really gives us the satisfaction because it is normally all encompassing. Well Japanese architect Tetsuo Kondo and German climate engineering firm Transsolar teamed up earlier this year to produce Cloudscapes, an installation to allow you to do just that. Using three layers of different temperature and humidity air, they created a space in which people can travel through clouds. Science and art are amazing. More beautiful photographs after the jump.
Since we all started sharing the PUBLIC SCHOOL studio space, we have collectively consumed thousands and thousands of sunflower seeds. Naturally, this conceptual art piece by Ai Weiwei, fits right in here.
Ai Weiwei’s Sunflower Seeds challenges our first impressions: what you see is not what you see, and what you see is not what it means. The sculptural installation is made up of what appear to be millions of sunflower seed husks, apparently identical but actually unique. Although they look realistic, each seed is made out of porcelain. And far from being industrially produced, ‘readymade’ or found objects, they have been intricately hand-crafted by hundreds of skilled artisans.
The work is showing at the Tate Modern well into next year. Thanks to FAF for the heads up. More images after the jump…
