  3. Flamingo-Alexander Calder • Called a stabile instead of a mobile because it cannot be moved • Made of Steel • Painted red to contrast with the buildings surrounding • viewers can walk underneath and around it, thus enabling one to perceive it in human scale • Constructivism refers to sculpture that is made from smaller pieces which are joined together. • Located in Chicago’s Federal Plaza

  12. Week 1 Theme • Chicago!!!

  14. Andy Goldsworthy • He photographs each piece once right after he makes it. • His goal is to understand nature by directly participating in nature as intimately as he can. • He generally works with whatever comes to hand: twigs, leaves, stones, snow and ice, reeds and thorns.

  19. Lost Gardens of Heligan • most popular botanical gardens in the UK. • It was once a family estate, but then the gardens and forest lay buried for almost a century, overgrown with plants, broken trees, and hidden under blackberry brambles. • Sue and Pete Hill were again commissioned for another in their series of earth and plant sculptures there.

  20. Olga Ziemska. • There are many artists who build sculptures out of organic materials, but few works are as impressive as those produced by Olga Ziemska. The Ohio-based sculptor uses natural materials, like reclaimed willow branches, salvaged birch logs, clay and plaster to create wonderful installations that comment on humanity's interaction with the natural world. As Ziemska explains on her website, she uses art as a tool to better understand the world.

  21. Zach Pine • Zach Pine worked for several years to refine the technique used to sculpt these balls of sand into the spheres pictured here. • If you put just a bit of water with quite a bit of corn starch, you get a substance which is liquid until you apply force to it. And then it sort of turns solid. It's maintaining that consistency as you build the ball, and then keeping the ball in the air. You have to actually throw the ball in the air to form it • evoke a sense of uncertainty or impermanence

  22. Serena de la Hey • The County Wildlife site Berryman’s Marsh on the Dartington Estate has been given a creative lift by famed willow sculptor Serena de la Hey – who has created a beautiful bespoke archway along the boardwalk, to inspire nature spotters and conservation experts, as they admire the many different species of wildlife. • Serena de la Hey, who is also known for her 40 foot ‘Willow Man’ situated on the M5 near Bridgwater, was commissioned by Dartington to create the willow arch, as part of the charity’s strategy to merge creativity with sustainability. • The sculpture is made from willow, woven on a metal frame to create a walk through spiralling ribbon. Live willow has then been planted by the artist at the base of the arch and over time will grow around the whole structure to create a part living and ever changing sculpture, which will be viewed by thousands of passing visitors every year.

  23. Theme for this week…. • Nature and Scupture!

  25. HA Schult • HA Schult’s haunting ‘trash people’ have graced the streets of many of the world’s most major cities … silently open to interpretation as they travel the world and sit everywhere from the parks of New York City to the Great Wall of China. • It took Schult 6 months and 30 assistants to create these strange sculptures from crushed cans, computer parts and virtually anything else he could appropriate to assemble them. • What is their purpose and meaning? It is difficult to say, but they are certainly trans-cultural and intended to engage, inspire and engender reflection in those who see them and are a foil to see the reactions of different nations and groups of people.

  27. Robbie Rowlands • Robbie Rowlands is one of a number of artists who had a rare opportunity to do whatever they wanted to a building that was soon to be demolished. The Depot project questions the nature of the world around us and the everyday stable objects we take for granted – such as the interior structure of our dwelling spaces. He (quite literally) peels back the layers of everyday reality to reveal surfaces not typically meant to be seen. Based in Melbourne, Robbie studied at the Pratt Institute in New York and has been working ever since. • http://vimeo.com/7569594 • t

  29. Tom Deininger • Tom Deininger is no doubt one of the most creative and versatile trash artists in the world. His collages viewed from a distance seem like they could be made of anything – and they are indeed made out of just about everything he can find. • About a decade ago he moved to Rhode Island and started toying with found objects as artistic materials. In addition to creating his junk art Tom also lectures at local schools and colleges and creates canvas paintings.

  31. Helmet Smits • http://www.itsnicethat.com/articles/helmut-smits • clever observations, commentaries, visual puns, trickery and experiments which not only disrupt our assumptions of objects but assign them new meanings. • His art demonstrates a sharp eye for the minute detail in everyday objects and interesting/humorous happenstance, suggesting he is constantly looking, watching and note-taking.

  35. Beehive • Pascale MarthineTayou’s latest installation at MACRO – the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome – is made of nothing but plastic bags and stands nearly 10 yards tall!

  37. Metalmorphosis Mirror Fountain by David Černý • http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2011/10/metalmorphosis-mirror-fountain-by-david-cerny/ • Metalmorphosis is a mirrored water fountain by Czech sculptor David Černý that was constructed at the Whitehall Technology Park in Charlotte, NC. The 14-ton sculpture is made from massive stainless steel layers that rotate 360 degrees and occasionally align to create a massive head. It even has it’s own live webcam. See many more images here.

  39. Crown FountainPlensa • Crown Fountain is an interactive work of public art and video sculpture featured in Chicago'sMillennium Park • The fountain is composed of a black granitereflecting pool placed between a pair of glass brick towers. The towers are 50 feet tall,[1] and they use light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to display digital videos on their inward faces. • Residents and critics have praised the fountain for its artistic and entertainment features.Ithighlights Plensa'sthemes of dualism, light, and water, extending the use of video technology from his prior works. • After construction, surveillance cameras were installed atop the fountain, which led to a public outcry (and their quick removal). • Part of Chicago’s pop culture. • It is a popular subject for photographers and a common gathering place. • While some of the videos displayed are of scenery, most attention has focused on its video clips of local residents; hundreds of Chicagoans visit the fountain hoping to see themselves appearing on one of the fountain's two screens. • The fountain is a public play area and offers people an escape from summer heat, allowing children to frolic in the fountain's water.

  40. Duane Hanson • Since the early 1970’s Duane Hanson has been making startlingly lifelike sculptures of middle America accomplished through a complex process of casting from live models, recreated in bronze or fibreglass resin.
