LED Type Case by Martin Bircher

October 28, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Finland-based artist Martin Bircher has converted a European printer’s type case into an impressive grid of 125 digitally controlled LEDs. Up close it’s only possible to distinguish the abstract flicker of light, however at a distance more complex shapes take form such as news headlines, or even Betty Boop. (via quips)

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.

Spectacles of Environments by Phoebe Washburn

October 25, 2010

Enormous and intricate installations by New York artist Phoebe Washburn

[…] Washburn has moved on to newsprint and scrap wood, but what her massive, room-size architectural sculptures all share is that they’re built from the scavenged bits of the urban world in which she lives. She prizes the castoff and mass-produced—the pencils, crates and day-old newspapers that none of us much cares about—and then sorts, layers and transforms them into what she calls “spectacles of environments.”

Many more great photos on flickr.

Arrivals/Departures by Michael Fernandes Asks People about Themselves

October 20, 2010

Christopher Jobson

An installation by Michael Fernandes at Nuit Blanche in Toronto, an all-night contemporary art event held earlier this month.

What are you up to? Who are you? What do you miss? What do you want? […] A few of the possible set of questions that prompters will ask you. Then, your responses are transcribed onto large blackboards. The aim of this participatory project is to solicit and register a broad sense of ‘travel’. With continuous prying, the prompters encourage responses that are based on life experience, interpersonal relationships as well as the specifics of being ‘here’ and ‘there’.
