Informal. The answer from a young person when asked what a social space should be, what makes it important to them? As part of a one day installation event and workshop, a collaborative project between myself and @naomiharwin.
Some of them move and some of them don't. Here are the info on the first three art pieces: .
Tree of Ténéré
An enormous lifelike tree, Ténéré offers shade to wanderers, adventure to climbers, and transcendent community to those gathered beneath its 15,000 LED leaves.
Gummy Bear Pyramid
This is a 12ft tall, 4-sided pyramid made out of over 100,000 hand-cast gummy bears, acrylic, and metal.
a 40 foot tall flamingo! Inspired by Don Featherstone’s classic, Phoenicopterus Rex will feature climbable legs and a sitting area on the back of this massive lawn ornament.
Burning man never ceases to amaze me. This place reminds me of how capable we all are. There were 250+ art installations spread all over 7 square miles (if you overlaid it BRC would cover most of downtown San Francisco). I thought I could see it all but after looking at pictures and videos from my camp mates, I realized I probably saw 1/3 or less of what's out there.
If you ever need a creative boost or to active your FOMO (among many many other things offered here) this is it.
Here is a teaser time lapse from the Delectricity event that happens in Midtown Detroit Sep 22-23rd. The whole midtown area & Wayne State University 📚was full of electronic art installations. I will put together individual artists profile stories of this event over the next few days. 🎥📷👀
Our work, Metro-Pollination, is presented as part of #CelebrateRMIT - @rmituniversity 130th anniversary. This work was done in collaboration with @jobewilliams @hyperreelist Sean Dove and Iver Lynne. Many thanks to @sarahtannn for the documentation :)
🌱Get ready for the most fun you’ve ever had shopping. Totally sustainable. Totally unique. Totally cash free. CASH FREE?! That’s right, it’s out with the old and in with the new, where you bring items of your wardrobe you no longer want (those jeans you’re just never going to fit into, now’s the time to give them up) and trade them in for a number of tokens based on their quality. You’ll then use the tokens to shop the rails. They’ll be a number of fantastic sustainable marketplace stalls joining too including @jutashoes, @rejuce - and if that isn’t enough…there will be live art installations, a DJ and goodie bags – only for £11.21 on tomorrow! @storiesbehindthings what an event 🛒 #con2creation
