A guy called Hannes Wingate has been building a giant nest beside Burnside skatepark in Portland. Wingate builds urban nests without any nails or supports, armed with nothing more than his hatchet and a knife (and sometimes a ladder). More images below.
Artist Janet Echelman, known for her beautiful large outdoor sculptures made of nets, is set to install her largest work to date in Vancouver! She is personally borrowing funds to cover the cost of installing the work and a non-profit called Burrard Arts Foundation has stepped in to try and help her make this sculpture a reality.
Watch the video below explaining the proposed piece for Vancouver, and if you want to support the project jump over to Kickstarter.
Love this piece. “Listen and Repeat” is an installation by artist Rachel Knoll. A megaphone installed on a tree, on a mountain, in Washington reads out tweets that use the words “nobody listens”. The messages are announced, via a text to speech program, to an audience of trees.
