Just a list of cool Burning Man art installation. For those who don’t know what Burning Man is, it’s basically a yearly event in the desert where people gather and everything and anything goes.
Almost like a set of 3D blueprints, the artist creates a large model of his childhood home enveloped by a model of the first apartment he lived in when arriving in the US.
By using a giant mirror, the artist creates the illusion of participants hanging on the facade of a Parisian building. It’s a fun way for people to interact with the piece and visualize a predicament that hopefully they will never be in .
The artist uses chain-link fences and translucent tiles to showcase the light around us that normally would go unnoticed.
If you had 50 hours and 2000 pounds of salt, what would you do with it? For Motoi Yamamoto, the answer is simple: make a salt labyrinth. The patterns are meant to convey a sense of eternity while the salt itself is used because it possesses “a close relation with human life beyond time and space.” In Japanese culture, salt is often sprinkled after leaving a funeral in order to ward off evil.
However, like most public installations, the salt labyrinths are impermanent. Yamamoto encourages the salt to be returned to the ocean because he “likes to think the salt in his work might have, at one time, been part of some creature and supported its existence.”
Chinese artist uses Beijing smog to make breaks that he hopes to turn into a building.
This is a piece by Amalia Ulman called The Future Ahead. It is a faux documentary on Justin Bieber, which was part of her solo show The Destruction of Experience at the Evelyn Yard London that took place October 2014. Amalia came and did an artist lecture at penn a few weeks ago and showed this piece as part of her lecture.
Hope you find it interesting!
