Share This.Using thread, nails, wood, I’m Not Worried About You by Jeffrey Michael Austin creates a brilliant installation that makes a contradicting statement. The installation features a severed tree tethering to the message, “I’m Not Worried About You.” The work is compelling and latently sarcastic.

Share This.This weekend is the last chance to see Hong Seon Jang’s Instruments at Munch Gallery.

Share This.Part of the Waiting Land series in Southern Italy, Basic Alchemy is a minimalistic installation with a rich and intricate concept. Created by Berlin based Karen Lohrmann & Stefano de Martino, Basic Alchemy‘s intention is best explained by the duo’s statement: “Basic Alchemy refers to the emblematic element through which radical transformations of the environment—culturally, physically, politically—take place. Mostly under the radar, the universal concrete column produces cubic meters and collateral, shelter and luxury, slum and Read More

Share This.A grand ball of confusion, Chiharu Shiota‘s Stairway is an intricate installation that transforms the space around an object to a point where the very object is rendered useless. A signature technique of Shiota’s, the purposeful confusion not only stuns the eye, but is a metaphorical struggle between the few and the many. Also See the making of Shiota’s Infinity:
