Bill Burns – Safety Gear for Small Animals

Bill Burns - Safety Gear for Small Animals

Everyone loves a miniature. That’s why we all love Bill Burns’ Safety Gear for Small Animals. These tiny guys are on display at the MoMA in New York along with guides on how to assist small animals. Burns’ work consists mainly of sculpture, photographs and books. All of his work acts as a commentary on human stewardship of the environment.

A bunch of cool works by Gareth Owen Lloyd. I especially like this series from winter 2007, and how the light background is able to reveal what is in the sculpture of negatives… a lot to look at!

Eclipse (Watch Tower)


Sharjah Biennial 2009 – Eclipse (Watch Tower) By Amir H. Fallah from amir fallah on Vimeo.

A few weeks ago I made a series of posts from my trip to Sharjah & Dubai. I didn’t post much about why I was there and what I was doing but the above video should shed some light. It documents the construction of a large scale 2 story sculpture titled “Eclipse (Watch Tower) built in the atrium of the Sharjah Art Museum for the Sharjah Biennial.

Letha Wilson: Reclaim Drywall!

 

 

Fountain is a sculpture made by Letha Wilson using drywall and wood reclaimed from art gallery walls, and an artist’s studio walls. In this piece the form of a classical water fountain is invoked, typically present in a garden or entryway as a symbol of the utopian ideal. Walls and building materials previously used to house artworks, complete with paint stains and remnants of their past life, are re-newed into this functional water fountain. The drywall materials will gradually deteriorate away over the course of the exhibition as the paper and rock-based materials are worn down by constantly moving water.

A Man Named Pearl

I’ve been an avid documentary film watcher for many years now. My favorite documentaries are obscure stories about everyday people doing extraordinary things.  I always get excited to share these documentaries with friends but before I know it I forget the title. So in the spirit of archiving my findings I am creating a new category dedicated strictly to documentaries.  Below is one of my most recent finds. 

 

A Man Named Pearl tells the inspiring story of self-taught topiary artist Pearl Fryar, whose unlikely journey to national prominence began with a bigoted remark.

Islands is a series of sculptures showing miniature snapshots of life. Isolated pieces of land, that look like they were wrenched from the earth by some force of nature, are floating through nowhere. All that is left is a random group of living beings who do their best to survive. For more sculptures, photo projects and installations visit The Rainbow Monkeys!
