Tree of Heaven

Tree of Heaven is a collective, urban forestry, project with a distinct Detroit grittiness. Connoisseurs of the “Ghetto Palm” Tree of Heaven makes furniture and other accouterments from the limb of this under utilized resource (if you want to call it a resource at all) in a community shop envioronment. Very distinct and very proactive in a community that most certainly needs such things.

Matthias Pliessnig

note_23Matthias Pliesnig and his body rafts have been smoking hot for a couple of years now and with good reason; they’re really lovely! But Im more enamored with this set of fist size arrangements he did some time back. So many interesting things going on!

Carsten Nicolai

modell_zur_visualisierungNicolai has been one of of those pariahs for me personally where I seem to see his work all over the place but when it comes to recalling it…nothing!  I always seem to forget his name or what have you but never again!

I of course have a pronounced artistic interest in the territory between art and science and I have tremendous respect for Nicolai for mining this so well.

Nicolai’s work, according to his statements, is meant to give rise to sensory experiences humans would not normally have by translating, for instance, sound waves into visually discernible information. Nicolai gives onlookers otherwise unknowable sensory experiences but, unlike some who work within a similar genre, by doing so in an extremely understated visual language Nicolai is well accomplished at not turning his works into a circus sideshow or a forgettable curiosity. Get it!

Telling Tales @ the VA

londontheatrehorses-2The VA has mounted an exhibition dedicated to European design art; sort of a first (to my knowledge anyway) for a high level institution. The exhibition includes selections from Studio Job, Hella Jongerius, and other usual Euro suspects of this movement. The website is very well put together and allows for a high level of exploration with the included works.
