As the semester ends, I think this giant clothespin sculpture is very appropriate because it is the “close pin” of my posts. It was created by Turkish artist Mehmet Ali Uysal and works on the illusion that the clothespin is actually pinching the ground. As artists, often times we have to put on an illusion to make things seem magical and wondrous for the audience. As artists, we must make people use their imagination. The medium through which we do this could be anything. It could be through an imaginary street sign, a video, or a piece of clothing. It could just be some wood and metal around some dirt like in this post. Art can be anything.
As we’ve learned this semester in Arts, Design and Digital Culture, it’s the thought that counts 🙂http://www.atlasobscura.com/places/giant-clothespin-sculpture
