2,000 Suspended Tennis Balls Appear to Bounce Through Mustang Art Gallery

March 2, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Spanish visual artist Ana Soler is known for working with a multitude of objects from dangling hundreds of pairs of scissors or spoons, to creating dense clouds of string, coins, and paper cranes. In her most recent work, Causa-Efecto (Cause & Effect), she hung 2,000 tennis balls in spaces throughout the Mustang Art Gallery in Alicante, Spain. The balls are carefully aligned in suspended trajectories that appear to bounce off walls, floors, and other surfaces providing an uncanny sense of motion similar to a photograph taken with a strobe light. See much more on Soler’s fancy Flash website. (via collabcubed)

I’m really enjoying these large-scale installations of animals and insects by Canadian visual artist Kristi Malakoff. Also check out her work with currency and flowers. And if you liked this also see the work of Eiji Watanabe. (via pulmonaire)

Global Rainbow

March 1, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Global rainbow is an ongoing light installation by Yvette Mattern consisting of seven parallel laser beams representing a rainbow that’s being projected over populated urban areas and is meant “to encompass geographical and social diversity in its reach and symbolise hope.” The installation was switched on in the UK for the first time last night over the North Tyneside coastline and will be making several additional stops over the next few weeks. You can read more about Global Rainbow on Mattern’s blog and see tons of great photos here.

A French Hotel Room Half Covered in Graffiti

February 28, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Internationally recognized graffiti artist Tilt has just completed this eye-popping interior design work for the Au Vieux Panier hotel in Marseille, France. The hotel has just five rooms that are annually reconceptualized by commissioned artists and designers, somewhat similar to NYC’s Carlton Arms. For this space entitled Panic Room (which might aptly describe your mental state after a few nights in this Willy Wonkaesque environment) Tilt divided the room perfectly down the middle, one half covered entirely in his trademark vibrant and bubbly graffiti and the other half left stark white. See a sneak peek of all five concepts at Au Vieux Panier, including a room by Philippe Baudelocque who draws fantastic illustrations of animals using chalk. All in all, if I were checking in, Panic Room would be the clear choice. Photography above by the Big Addict. (via my modern met)
