Nada Sehnaoui: "Haven´t 15 years of hiding in the toilets been enough?"

Nada Sehnaoui: "Haven´t 15 years of hiding in the toilets been enough?" | Art Installations, Sculpture | Scoop.it

Nada Sehnaoui: "Haven´t 15 years of hiding in the toilets been enough?", Beirut central district, 2004

The presentation is of a well organized set of about 600 crystal clean toilet seats neatly placed in an almost perfect grid.

 

The toilets themselves are a reference to the fact that during the civil war, Lebanese families hid from the bombing in their bathrooms to avoid shattering glass.

"Now, we hear war drums and we may be killing each other again. This is why I am raising the question: have we not had enough?" Sehnaoui told the LA Times.

Sargasso slowly shifts and floats above the pedestrian traffic, while shaping the nature of the environment itself.

Roso: installation at Clark Shoes Headquarters in Street Somerset, South England, 2008

 

The installation itself was developed from a single observation – Light is only seen when reflected. A light beam coming through a window is only visible because light is reflected in the millions of dust particles floating in the air.

Tim Noble & Sue Webster: "Dirty White Trash (with Gulls)"

Tim Noble & Sue Webster: "Dirty White Trash (with Gulls)" | Art Installations, Sculpture | Scoop.it

Tim Noble & Sue Webster: "Dirty White Trash (with Gulls)", 1998

 

Artistic duo Tim Noble and Sue Webster are known for their creative experiments, which often utilize waste materials and light projectors. The “trash” used is often rubbish they collect on the streets of London. Sans projector, the artwork above appears to be just a mess of paper bags and wrappers, but once a light is shone—at just the right angle—onto the heap of garbage, out comes a clearly outlined and detailed image reflected onto a solid-colored backdrop.

« Non-sign » by Lead Pencil Studio

« Non-sign » by Lead Pencil Studio | Art Installations, Sculpture | Scoop.it

Non-Sign II by Lead Pencil Studio, 2010

 

Out in Washington State, Daniel Mihalyo and Annie Han, of Seattle’s Lead Pencil Studio, in 2010 put up a piece along the Canadian border that is stop-you-in-your-tracks beautiful. [[there is] a story about it in the new issue of Icon.] To counter the visual clutter along the road into the United States—countless billboards of garish, cheesy advertising fouling a once pristine landscape — they’ve created their own billboard, a negative billboard that frames the ever-changing sky. The structure itself is an evanescent thicket of steel rods, left incomplete along the top edge so your mind can fill in the shape.

 

Giant billboards are some of the most invasive forms of advertising, especially when you consider that they are strictly visual and mostly stationary. They’re just so huge!

Piotr Kowalski is one of the pioneers of the art technology, its different caps (arts, sciences, engineering) will allow it to link practices that some believe culturally incompatible.

Masaru Ozaki: Christmas Trees

Masaru Ozaki: Christmas Trees | Art Installations, Sculpture | Scoop.it

In 2009 Parco has commissioned the internationally-known Japanese light installation artist Masaru Ozaki to create a Christmas tree installation in front of the Parco #1 building.

Like many of Masaru Ozaki’s other works, the Shibuya Christmas trees feature light projections onto surfaces to make those surfaces appear to come to life. In this case, the surfaces on which the light show is projected onto are white cubes of various sizes stacked into the shape of a Christmas tree forest.

Chris Bosse (LAVA): Christmas art installation | Art Installations, Sculpture | Scoop.it

Chris Bosse of LAVA (Australia) has created a window installation for la Rinascente Milan for its Contemporary Christmas Art windows. The installation is an origami coral reef using 1500 recycled and recyclable cardboard molecules that explores the intelligence of natural and architectural systems. It plays with space by climbing up walls and arching over to create coral caves. Based on the geometrical structures of sea foam and corals, the colourful reef comes to life through dynamic lighting and sound.

Street Installations by Mark Jenkins

Street Installations by Mark Jenkins | Art Installations, Sculpture | Scoop.it
Mark Jenkins makes human body casts out of saran wrap and packing tape. He then places them around the city for a variety of humorous and thought provoking effects. In addition to creating art, he also teaches his sculpture techniques through workshops in cities he visits. He currently lives in Washington, DC.

Jenkins’ practice of street art is to use the “street as a stage” where passersby become actors. Many of his installations have resulted in intervention by the authorities whom he also regards as actors. Most of his early outdoor works were non-commissioned.
