Artist Turns Abandoned Cars into Public Art Installations

Sao Paulo street artist Felipe Carrelli turns abandoned cars into art and garden spaces transforming neighborhood eyesores into beautiful public art installations. Felipe first came up with the idea last year after a car that was abandoned on the street near where he works became a shelter for homeless people. The urban project called “Ocupe Carrinho”, or Occupy the Car has been welcomed by the neighborhood, so much so that a lot of residents have pitched in to help beautify other cars. “People from the community are very happy,” says Carrelli, “they help us paint and also water the plants.”

BIG RABBIT BY GELITIN

Rabbit (Artesina, Piemont, Italy. 2005), a gigantic pink cuddly toy made primarily of straw and wool, is the work of the artist group, Gelitin. It’s so big that one begins to get an idea of how small and insignificant a Liliputian must have felt next to Gulliver. According to the legend, dozens of grannies knitted one ton of wool into the rabbit’s skin, contributing to a work, which is to remain on site for 20 years-and left to rot.

FLUO HOUSE 

Instant Hutong | marcella campa & stefano avesani - "fluo house is a site specific meet-up space made of colorful tapes and created on occasion of Beijing BaiYe – Beijing White Night on 22-23 March 2013, in which for 24 hours visitors could enjoy 24 different events and encounters around Dongsi area in Beijing. We chose a half destroyed little room within a demolition site and we decided to deal playfully with this idea of temporary, ephemeral, fading and rebuilding. After removing dust and debris, the back wall was decorated with a graphic illusion as starting visible sign to mark our intervention. Visitors could take fluorescent stickers and reflector adhesive strips and use them to fill the remaining walls."

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.

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.

Berlin-based Artist Monika Goetz - "All four walls, ceiling and floor of the space have been covered with cut pieces of mirror glass. The space and the viewers within appear to disintegrate into infinitely fragmented reflections of themselves." (Installation in Georg Kolbe Museum, 2010)
