Times Square’s New Heart Formed with Salvaged Hurricane Sandy Debris

A sweet yet meaningful new art installation was recently unveiled in Times Square. Brooklyn-based design firm Situ Studio created Heartwalk, a heart-shaped enclosure made from boardwalk boards salvaged from the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Collected both from New York and New Jersey, the boards form a slatted construction that lifts from the ground and is illuminated from within. Visitors are encouraged to enter the installation and literally stand in the heart of the city. (via: mymodernmet)

ECHOLOGY

Artist Mathilde Roussel - Resonances between human body and vegetal are suggested by filling with plant elements, scientifical jars labelled with human body parts. The living ingredients inside the jars change and metamorphose though time. Dew, milk, pollen, sap, branches, grass, bark, etched glass jars. Exhibited at Anatomia Botanica, Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art, Nashville, US.”

WOLFGANG LAIB’S POLLEN FROM HAZELNUT

(Wolfgang Laib sifting hazelnut pollen, Centre Pompidou, Paris, 1992.)

In early 2013 (MoMA January 23–March 11, 2013), Wolfgang Laib’s Pollen from Hazelnut will inhabit the Museum’s Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium, infusing the space with a yellow luminosity. Laib perceives the Marron Atrium as the Museum’s inner sanctum, its womb, and has created this work especially for the site. It will be the artist’s largest pollen installation to date, measuring approximately 18 x 21 feet. The hazelnut pollen that will be used in MoMA’s installation has been collected by Laib from the natural environment around his home and studio, in a small village in southern Germany, since the mid-1990s.

THE INTERNATIONAL STREET ART OF SLINKACHU

London-based artist Slinkachu (facebook / blog- For an artist whose work frequently represents the themes of anonymity, alienation and loneliness inspired by city-living. In 2006, Slinkachu embarked on the first of his street art installation campaigns: The Little People Project. His miniature figures are left to fend for themselves in the bustling city, where they are then photographed and left to the abandon of their urban environment. These figures embody the estrangement spurred by the over-whelming nature of the modern metropolis, and incite a renewed perspective of the everyday urban experience to those who find them.

ATOMIC FULL OF LOVE FULL OF WONDER BY NIKE SAVVAS

Nike Savvas Lives and works London, UK and Sydney, Australia - The room installation “Atomic: full of love, full of wonder” (ARC ONE Gallery - Melbourne 2012) is comprised of a shimmering haze of vibrating coloured balls, suggesting the very atoms that are the fundamental structural units of all things. This mesmerising work has an extraordinary optical effect as the 1000s of suspended balls oscillate gently within a breeze created by large fans within the gallery space.

HANGARBICOCCA BY THOMAS SARACENO

Argentinian artist Tomas Saraceno (born 1973) - installation view at HangarBicocca, Milan. (previously)

For On Space Time Foam, his new installation at the HangarBicocca, Saraceno conceived a large transparent membrane (which he amusingly calls la lasagna) that visitors can get into. Folded in three layers, it is suspended at 25-metres above the ground, providing a radical bodily experience. (An interview from Milan by Filipa Ramos)
