Alexis Granwell, Benjamin Edwards, Mehretu, Sara Sie, Tileston… Look how these artists create space and mood!
This installation happened in New York which I for the first time did not get the meaning of this piece of art however, the video that made from this installation gave me some hints that the artist might want to arouse peaceful feelings and the sense of time.I thought this installation could be regarded as an good example of making full use of the space. The film as well as the music composed for the film stay coherent to the whole mood of the installation.
Our first project this semester was the visualization of the sound by graphic design. I am wondering what it will be like if we combine animation with the visualization of the sound. I found this great stop motion animation which visualized the sound in a pretty interesting way.
I really enjoyed this intersection between science, fashion and art, particularly because I am making a wearable about emotions.
Our group is considering using cardboard boxes to support our images, so I was curious to know how cardboard has withstood the elements in an outdoor installation. It turns out it was less so about the weather and more about people who the artist should have been concerned with. The tower, which was created by french artist Grossetete, was knocked over by the same children who helped to build him. It is interesting to know that temporary materials like cardboard present opportunities for temporary structeres where the ahdience can manipulate them.
CloudGate, made by Anish Kapoor, otherwise known as the Bean, is hugely popular in Chicago. Located right by the Art Institute of Chicago, this huge silvery sculpture always draws an enormous of crown of people walking around and taking pictures of their reflection, and watching others walking around and taking pictures of their reflection. Art, particularly public art, that causes people to give a physical reaction, in my opinion, should be considered a success.
