Numen / For Use

Numen / For Use | installation art | Scoop.it

Numen/For Use is a Croatian-Austrian design collective working in the fields of scenography, industrial and spatial design and conceptual art. Formed in 1998, as a collaborative effort of industrial designers Sven Jonke, Christoph Katzler and Nikola Radeljković, in 1999, they established Numen as a collective identity covering all projects actualized outside the sphere of industrial design.

 

Numen designers work to create spaces, often interactive, from materials used in untraditional ways. The group's Tape installations consist of creating amorphous constructions from packing tape that allows the viewers to crawl into and through the entire installation. The group designs sets and installations and has one many international design awards. Their work speaks on issues ranging from instability and regression, to fragility and the power of life.

Monika Grzymala’s Installations « CubeMe

Monika Grzymala’s Installations « CubeMe | installation art | Scoop.it

Polish artist Monkia Gryzmala's "Raumzeichnung" (Drawings in Space) is created as a response to the Sumarria Lunn Gallery's interior space. The artist works entirely with monochrome tape to build complex "drawings" that redefine the architectural space. Beginning at the central wall in the gallery,the tape covers archways, creates barriers, and spreads throughout the space as a reminder of the "invisible" wireless network that ever-present in our modern world.

I love this idea of moving from the flat 2D realm into space.  Beautiful!

Chiharu Shiota: Performative Installation Art

Chiharu Shiota: Performative Installation Art | installation art | Scoop.it

Chiharu Shiota was born in Osaka, Japan in 1972. Having studied in German art schools, her work envelops both genres of installation and performance art, reminiscent of the 1970s. Influenced by the work of Schneemann, Bourgeois, and mendieta, Shiota's work often invites the viewer in and restricts physical access at the same time. Using thread, the artists creates a pictorial language of memory, loss, and connectivity. Through the manual labor or knotting and tying, Shiota makes the process of creating the installations performative.

I love how this artist moves art into a tangible form.  The music is visual and seems to be flying in this work.

Maya Lin at Pace Wildenstein

Maya Lin at Pace Wildenstein | installation 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.

This piece is extraordinary in the way of its simplicity and complete complexity just like looking at the natural world.

Illuminated Public Sculptures

 

Earlier this year in February, artists Sean Gallero and Petra Bachmaier utilized Anish Kappor’s well-known sculpture “Cloud Gate”. Using the mirror finish of this famous Chicago sculpture as well as sound installation, Sean and Petra were able to create experiences using the city backdrop and light projectors to bring this sculpture to life. The lights were meant to encourage viewers to interact and be engaged by the sculpture. According to the artists, “Luminous Field” was inspired by “Italian floor mosaics, the urban grid, pedestrian crosswalks, and geometric tessellations” (Gallero & Bachmaier).These artists have created a collaborate vision known as "Luftwerk". Other mixed media installations include "Flux" a feather installation in Las Vegas and "Mujifesto" a 5 plasma visual montage reflecting MUJI products . Most of their installations last for a period of 10 days.
