An installation by Andrea Mastrovito using 3,307 individual black and white photocopies that were pieced together to create the view outside the gallery walls. Incredible. (thnx, chelsea!)

Five Orange Spheres was an installation by artist Stuart Williams that consisted of five inflatable spheres each 6-feet in diameter that traveled the world for two and a half years in the 1980s. The above photos were taken in Cannon Beach, Oregon; in the moat around Chateau d’Azay-le-Rideau, France; Los Angeles; in Central Park NYC; Telegraph Hill in San Francisco; and an Alpine Village in Filisur, Switzerland. Previously.

Chris Larson

December 17, 2010

Christopher Jobson

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.
