Konstantin Dimopoulos: Blue Trees

Konstantin Dimopoulos: Blue Trees | Art Installations, Sculpture, Contemporary Art | Scoop.it

Konstantin Dimopoulos: Blue trees, Burke-Gilman Regional Trail, Kenmore, Washington State, USA

 

"The Blue Trees is a social art action. Through colour I am making a personal statement about the spirituality of trees and their importance to our very survival: trees are the lungs of the planet.

Colour is a powerful stimulant, a means of altering perception and defining space and time. The fact that blue is a colour that is not naturally identified with trees suggests to the viewer that something unusual, something out of the ordinary has happened. It becomes a magical transformation.

In nature colour is used both as a defensive mechanism, a means of protection, and as a mechanism to attract. The Blue Trees attempts to waken a similar response from viewers. It is within this context that the blue denotes sacredness, something reverential.

Trees are largely invisible in our daily lives, and it’s not until it’s too late that we realise how important they are to us both aesthetically and environmentally. Each year an area at least the size of Belgium of native forests is cleared from around the planet.

Yet while we do this we look at whether other planets can be inhabited, so we’ve got somewhere else to go once we’ve destroyed our own.

The colour used on the trees is biologically safe pigmented water. As an ephemeral artwork, the colour will naturally degrade and the trees gradually revert to their natural state." K.D.

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, Contemporary Art | 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.

Doris Salcedo: installation, Istanbul Biennial, 2003

 

Over 1600 chairs went into making this incredible urban art installation project. The chairs are aged, each with its own history that contributes a piece of the story of the overall installation. The sheer volume and time associated with placing these chair-by-chair in place is impressive enough, regardless of intention.

 

Doris Salcedo (born 1958) is a Colombian-born sculptor.

Alexandre Orion: "Ossario"

Alexandre Orion: "Ossario" | Art Installations, Sculpture, Contemporary Art | Scoop.it

Alexandre Orion: "Ossario", 2006 -  is a non-pollutant graffiti, which is the partial removal of surface dirt that has accumulated pollution. Needless to say the work is monochrome, and relatively temporary.

Alexandre Orion is a Brazilian graffiti artist has the distinction of having expressed his talent with a tunnel cleaned blackened by pollution in Sao Paolo. Skulls were designed for about 160 meters, and Alexandre Orion was not arrested because his creations were not painted, but made with a simple cloth. In the end, the city of Sao Paolo had to clean the tunnel to clear the skulls.
