art in your space?

13 Sep

these quirky installations command attention by using a-typical materials and techniques while leveraging public spaces.

ahhhh conceptual art, i’ve come to adore you.

“It is well known that CDs are condemned to gradually disappear from our daily life, and to later participate in the construction of immense open-air, floating or buried toxic waste reception centers…The project joins a global, innovative and committed approach, from its means of production until the end of its “life”.

various levels of milk & coffee were using to create the shading.

wouldn’t it be awesome to run into these lil’ guys on your morning commute? i’m already sold on the exhibit and the addition of a rubber duck for the bathroom. (why did i ever stop playing with water toys in the bath tub?)

i’m reminded of Kurt Perschke’s red ball project which visited chicago back in september 2008, my first summer here. this was actually the first time i took interest in conceptual art. i love how the red ball manipulates our view of the space in a new way, allowing us to appreciate the beauty and completeness of the architecture–both what is and isn’t there.

what do you guys think, would you welcome art in your space?

how do you feel about stumbling across conceptual art en route to work?

i find it splendid.
