These Mirrored Fences Camouflage Themselves According To The Seasons

By • Mar 10th, 2014

Artist Alyson Shotz has created an interesting piece of installation artwork that also serves as a thought experience – a run-of-the-mill picket fence covered entirely by perfectly mirrored surfaces. The visual effect of having a mirrored fence is as weird as it is diverse – in some landscapes, the fence seems to be camouflaged, while in others, it serves as a strange and surreal extension or distortion of the environment around it.

By • Feb 25th, 2014

The word “epic” is thrown around a lot these days to describe art or other media that people like. If you want a good idea of what “epic” really looks like, however, you need to see the D. A. S. T. Arteam’s truly epic art installation near the Red Sea in Egypt. 17 years after its completion, this mystical desert spiral is still clearly visible on Google Earth.

The vaulted hall of a cathedral is already a great place for spiritual introspection, but when it’s graced by a simple yet beautiful artwork like this one by artist Anne Patterson, the effect becomes so much more awe-inspiring and profound. In “Graced by Light,” Patterson hung 20 miles of multi-colored ribbons from the ceiling of Grace Cathedral in San Francisco and illuminated them, creating what seems a ray of multi-colored light from heaven itself.

By • Aug 19th, 2013

You might think you know what patience means, but American artist Liza Lou clearly has a bit better understanding about what meticulous work really is. Her first large scale work Kitchen took 5 years to complete (1991–1996), and is, as the title suggests, a life-size replica of a kitchen, covered entirely in millions of glass beads. Liza placed each of tiny beads separately using a pair of tweezers, and that way created an amazing mosaic surface to every single item in the room, from walls to newspaper to a bag of chips.
