i was recently introduced to colossal, a wonderful art blog that i spent a good few minutes perusing. there are such intriguing & awe-inspiring contemporary artworks on this site…here are my 4 immediate favourites that i wish i could have been able to appreciate personally :
this installation entitled I wish you hadn’t asked, a small house that rains nearly 200 litres of water every minute on the inside, was created by creative collective, the glue society. the public were encourage to enter with a raincoat or without. artist james dive of the glue society says the work is “about that moment in a relationship when something is said, or done, that can’t be taken back. And the rot sets in.”
armada, jacob hashimoto‘s latest artwork, is a large-scale kinetic sculpture of suspended sailboats affixed to three gently rolling lever mechanisms that cause the ships to roll gently along invisible waves. i would love to see this in action…
competitive swinging is an installation by artist paolo salvagione. the enormous rope swings are installed 5-on-5 in an old gymnasium and the only true goal seems to be who can have the most fun, a competition I think many people in this world often forget to engage in.
