Birds on the Wire

Creating a composition like a songbird inspired by a crows perched on some telephone wires. Jarbas Agnelli spotted a picture of the birds in a newspaper and noticed they were arranged like notes on a musical score and struck a chord.

Reading a newspaper, I saw a picture of birds on the electric wires. I cut out the photo and decided to make a song, using the exact location of the birds as notes (no Photoshop edit). I knew it wasn’t the most original idea in the universe. I was just curious to hear what melody the birds were creating.

Keys With a View and Locks of Love

Key Fence

I took these photos of a project titled "Keys With a View" in Old Wilmington, NC while visiting the USS North Carolina and decided to have lunch in town. After walking past this fence, originally we thought a historic building was recently demolished and those keys were inside and attacked to the fence. After doing some research I found out it was actually an art installation. At the end of this project the fence will hold about 60,000 keys. It currently holds about 20,000, “give or take 3,000.”

Keys With a View

The one question I did ask myself, "if you have all these keys...where are the locks?"

In another art project of all places!

Locks of Love symbolizes love and good luck in relationships. The locks are adorned with the names or initials of couples, then locked alongside many others. The key is tossed away, so the locks can not be undone. Love how these compliment each other.

Camouflaged Contemporary Art

Cayetano Ferrer uses photo stickers to camouflage cardboard boxes and street signs to reveal what these objects ultimately obscure.

Ferrer exposes the relationship between the built and the rebuilt, surface and hidden, as well as the delicate matter of history and memory as the present paves over the resent past in a bid to enrich economies. Ferrer’s work is a gentle push/pull between permanence and obsolescence, inviting consideration of evolution, mutation and modification in our relationship to our immediate environment.”

Perpetually Sinking Ship

Farewell and adieu to you, Spanish Ladies, Farewell and adieu to you, ladies of Spain!

"love love" is an amusing, unusual floating sculpture by Julien Berthier. Made from a large sailboat that has been modified to appear as if it is capsizing. Despite its appearance the boat is fully functional and has built-in motor.

A yacht was cut in half and a new keel was added to allow the boat to remain upright in the sinking position.

Seeing the World Differently

Similar to my post on illusions of daily objects.

Sandrine Estrade Boulet turns normal street scenes into amazing artwork. Some people see the world differently then others. She has a marvelous imagination. Some of her illustrations and creations are obvious once they are visualized, but I would not see it just walking down the road.

Check out more of her illustrations in her gallery.

Lighting of Importance

Check out these incredible shadow sculptures. When light filters through them, hidden messages are unveiled through bent wires, cotton clouds, cardboard boxes, and shrubbery.

The artist's play on words and images give rise to a surprising aesthetic effect, while the kinds of materials he chooses is reminiscent of poetry.

Bringing Colors to Life

I'm on a dance video posting frenzy. This one comes more as an abstract art dance.

Using a speaker, a membrane and paint, it is graceful art of paint movements. And this artistic paint glamor is captured in 5,000 frames per second creating a clarified slow motion effects.
