Thread Installations by Sébastien Preschoux

October 26, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Sébastien Preschoux creates intricate installations in natural environments using hundreds of feet of multi-colored string. A quote from Preschoux from trendland:

Nowadays, the new generation disposes of images as a industrial rapidity and they are not asking themselves about where these things are coming from. Is it handmade or is it an electronic work? When they are faced with creating handmade work, they realize the labor and time it takes. The result is way more important than a printed work that is, easily reproduced. In my opinion, art makes sense if it is the result of the human hand.

Bird houses by London Fieldworks for London’s Secret Garden Project.

The Secret Garden Project is a new programme of temporary commissions and pop up art events by young and established artists that will create a trail of London’s secret gardens, lesser known green spaces, and urban corners. The project aims to bring high quality art projects and events to London’s public realm; raise awareness of the ecological and cultural value of urban green space; encourage an understanding and engagement with ecology and biodiversity, create opportunities for community engagement and collaboration and encourage innovation.
