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)

Japanese artist Makoto Tojiki works primarily with light, exploring its use in installations, figurative sculptures, as well as kinetic pieces. His No Shadow works shown above are among my favorite, using long strands of lights to create representations of people and animals. See much more over in his gallery.

Do Ho Suh's 'Cause & Effect': A Vortex of Little Orange Men

February 20, 2012

Christopher Jobson

This giant tornado of piggybacked men is an installation by Korean artist Do Ho Suh that is currently on display at Western Washington University (photographs above depict it in alternate configurations). Via Western:

“‘Cause & Effect’ evokes a vicious tornado. This vast ceiling installation is a composition of densely hung strands that anchor thousands of figures clad in colors resembling a Doppler reading stacked atop one another,” said Do Ho Suh, adding that the artwork is a “physical realization of existence, suggesting strength in the presence of numerous individuals. The work is an attempt to decipher the boundaries between a single identity and a larger group, and how the two conditions coexist.”

Suh has been all over the news lately with his recent Fallen Star Lands installation in San Diego, and his Floor piece in Singapore similarly depicting the might of many thousands of tiny men. See many more views of this piece and other works here. (via the stranger, korea.net, herry lawford)

Update: I received clarification from WWU, Cause & Effect is still being installed and will not be on view until June of this year.
