An Elaborate Snow Drawing by Artist Sonja Hinrichsen

Another incredible snow drawing by artist Sonja Hinrichsen (previously featured here)! Made in the snow covering Lake Catamount in Colorado last year, the site-specific piece pays homage to the Yampa River which used to run through the valley.

Helped along by roughly 50 community participants, the group’s route not only coincided with the course of the original river, the abstract designs created from their tracks in the snow mimic the meandering flow of water. See more images of “Yampa River” below!

Captivating Stop-Motion Dissections of Everyday Objects by Artist Simon Gerbaud

Simon Gerbaud

 

Artist Simon Gerbaud has created a series of animations involving the incremental destruction of various objects like shoes and hairdryers as well as larger things like refrigerators and shopping carts. While the stop motion creations are strangely satisfying to watch on their own, Gerbaud has used them in several interactive installations in the past.

At the XII Feria de las Calacas in Mexico in 2012, the footage was synched to audience activated sensors so that the objects would disappear (or reappear) according to people’s movements, noises or breathing in the room. Check out more images and video of Gerbaud’s fascinating work below!

150 Boats Float Atop Giant Wave of Yarn in New Installation by Japanese Artist Chiharu Shiota

Photos by Gabriel de la Chapelle

 

Japanese artist Chiharu Shiota’s latest site-specific installation is on display at Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche in Paris. It features 150 boats suspended in the air as well as a large-scale floor exhibition involving a threaded wave through which visitors are invited to walk.

Composed of nearly 300,000 yards of intricately woven white yarn, the web-like installation is something of a purposeful mystery, provoking questions about our connections not just to each other, but to our past and future. See more images of “Where are we going?” below or on display until February 18th.

Elaborate Faux Tile Floor Installations by Artist Javier De Riba

deriba9deriba2

Spanish artist Javier De Riba spray paints floors of abandoned buildings and segments of pavement to look like traditional Catalan tiling. De Riba also happens to be a member of Reskate, the Barcelona-based art collective responsible for the series of inventive glow-in-the-dark murals we posted about recently (click here to check them out if you haven’t already).

Like Reskate’s affinity for projects that have a deeper meaning, the state of the buildings De Riba chooses to work (and the contrast it creates) is often as striking as the patterns themselves. See more images and video below!
