    I love it!

  • David Johnston

    I’ve been cynical about the direction sculpture and art installations have taken. This work has restored my faith in art,and made me smile. Brilliance.

  • Anything that involves photography involved in sculpture is good for me!

  • Cate

  • Amanda

    its art like this that really inspires me, not to mention it immediately brought to mind “tiny cities made of ashes” by modest mouse, which makes me love this installation even more.

  • This installations has popped up on a couple blogs and I have been captivated each time I see it by the amount of work that must have went into making the ash city. Such a cool piece. I really like it.

After each sketch is completed he leaves it somewhere more visible but still in the exact spot where the original piece of garbage was collected. See more images below.

Artist Dominic Wilcox Creates Art Exhibition Specifically For Dogs


London-based artist and designer Dominic Wilcox (if you don’t know who he is you have to watch this) has come up with the ultimate contemporary art exhibition for dogs as part of an initiative to encourage people to play more with their pets.

Working in consultation with veterinary experts, installations include an open car window simulator and a 10 ft ball pit made to look like a dog bowl filled with dog food. Paintings by artists Claire Mallison, Joanne Hummel-Newell, Robert Nicol and Michelle Thompson hang low to the ground and specifically draw on colours within dogs’ visual spectrum.

Such a great idea! Check out more images and video of the exhibit below, including some of Wilcox’s preliminary sketches!
