Chris Larson

Phenomenal work from Minnesota artist Chris Larson whose body of work is spread so thinly online it took almost 45 minutes to piece together what I have here. Above we have Shotgun House, sub-zero stills from a short film entitled Deep North, and a wooden replica of the Dukes of Hazzard ’69 Charger crash landing on a replica of unabomber Ted Kaczynski’s Montana refuge (not to mention the space ship he constructed also crashing into said refuge). Rochester Art Center has some nice words:

Chris Larson’s work examines the relationship between humans and machines – sometimes expressed through a moment of impact, sometimes through great toil and effort. His previous sculptures are large wooden constructions of collided objects: in one example, a spaceship nearly flattens a wooden barn; in another, the car from The Dukes of Hazzard TV show, recreated in wood, is smashed into the roof of a replica of Ted Kaczynski’s cabin. These works are filled with metaphors of heroic and anti-heroic acts and of the collision of good and evil in human nature.

Book Sculptures by Ann Hamilton

Ann Hamilton works in a wide variety of mediums including interactive audio and sensory works, photography, and elaborate large-scale installations. When looking through her body of art that spans more than 20 years (Google around, much if it isn’t on her site), her book sculptures really got my attention.

Three String Shelf

December 16, 2010

Christopher Jobson

My Google-sense tells me this three string shelf by Lara Knutson made the rounds a bit last year, but it’s definitely new to me. The title is kind of a misnomer, it’s actually just one string fed through a network of eyelet screws to create three points of contact for books to rest on. Simplistic, clever, and cheap.
