“Solitary ping pong on the ocean” by Vancouver-based artist Chad Murray. There’s something about this image of a person playing ping pong, against a perfect horizon, forever that I find funny, and sad, and actually kinda poetic. Watch the video below.
“Breaking The Surface” is a collaboration between ctrl+N, Scandinavian Design Group, Kontur, Abida, and Intek for Lundin Norway. The installation is essentially a grid of plastic cyclinders that move up into the ceiling as people walk underneath it. The wave-like motions can be experienced from below, on the first floor, but also from above, on the second floor. Love to see this in person, watch the videos below.
“Strandlines” is a generative single-channel video installation by artist filmmaker Michelle Higa Fox. Digital waves move back and forth across 400 pounds of sand. The waves corresponds to local tides, and no two waves are ever the same. Watch the video 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.
