Chris Burden - “Urban Light"

Chris Burden - “Urban Light" | Art Installations, Sculpture, Contemporary Art | Scoop.it

Chris Burden created Urban Light in 2008 from 202 restored cast iron antique street lamps.

For the artist, the street lights symbolize a  civilized, sophisticated city that was safe after dark and beautiful to look at. The lights are powered by solar energy and are on every night from dusk until dawn. The individual lights were collected from various resources, including the Rose Bowl flea market. The lamps were all painted a neutral gray in order to draw attention to their individual details and maintain a cohesive installation. At first glance, the lamps appear to be in a perfect grid, however. depending on where the viewer stands, the lamps arrange themselves in different angles.

 

The work has made appearances in Hollywood films, commercials, and photo shoots and is quickly becoming a must see for Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Maya Lin at Pace Wildenstein

Maya Lin at Pace Wildenstein | Art Installations, Sculpture, Contemporary Art | Scoop.it

Maya Lin's Three Ways of Looking at the Earth at the Pace Wildenstein gallery hosted three of the artist's conceptual, systematic explorations of landscapes. The artist, known for monumental and earthworks, created landscapes that would transform viewers’ perspectives about the land and the sea by inviting them to navigate around, through and under these site-related installations. In 2x4 Landscape, Lin used 50,000 individually cut pieces of wood to create a pixelated landscape, reminiscent of architecture. Maya Lin’s work aims to reveal something new and startling about the planet we inhabit. The artist also hopes to bring attention to the physical relationship we have with the natural environment.
