“Falling Star” is an installation by South Korean artist, Do Ho Suh, which leaves a house balancing on the roof of a seven story building on the UC San Diego Campus. Looking as if the house dropped from the sky, visitors can view the piece on the roof, enjoy a beautiful well-manicured garden, and catch a descent view of the surrounding San Diego landscape.

The work reflects the artists on-going exploration of themes around the idea of home, cultural displacement, the perception of our surroundings, and how one constructs a memory of a space

Best viewed at night, installation artist, Bruce Munro, has created a radiant and colorful installation at Longwood Gardens in Philadelphia open to the public. Using 20,000 Illuminated stems, numerous CDs made to resemble water lilies, and a large amount of LEDs along a hillside, the 23 acres of land is worth exploring. The Garden hosts a range of activities through the summer including music events, craft nights, and contests.

As part of the Uncommon Common Art project in Nova Scotia, writer Nicole Evans and Pat Farrell created Unbalanced, a series of door installations that create the illusion that the doors are leading to nowhere. Or somewhere. Or to another dimension. Take your pick.

Artist Leo Villareal wants to light up the Bay Bridge and we hope this becomes a reality. He has proposed ad LED light installation consisting of 25,000 white LEDs, spaced a foot apart for the west span of the bridge. The lights will have the function of changing, making abstract patterns based loosely on water, traffic, and weather patterns.

These wire sculptures appear to be, and I'm almost convinced they are, small ink drawings on top of photos of a gallery setting. No, these are actual wire sculptures that appear as if they are floating on the surface. But that is David Oliveira's intention; twist, turn, contort the wires to appear like drawing sculptures floating in the air.

Alexa Meade has long been a subject of our fascination and awe, as she transforms live models into living paintings in both gallery and performance settings. She brings paintings to life, so to speak. Tonight, June 6, at the National Portrait Gallery Museum in Washington, DC, Meade will create a pair of portraits with live models—one in a black-and-white scene and a second on a similar, but full-color set, with viewers being able to watch and interact with the process.

We love public art in any form, especially when it completely changes the landscape (for the better). We love bookstores and libraries, too, and to see this fantastic project, an outdoor public library called The Bookyard, just combines all the things we like. Massimo Bartolini, we say wonderful work. The public installation, made for the Belgian Art Festival, sits next to rows of grapevines.

Not only are these geometric string installations well-constructed by French artist Sebastien Preschoux, but the way they are lit and photographed makes them seem even more profound. The thread installations transform otherwise dark locations into spaces that appear ready to jump through for optimal time travel.

First off, did you know everyday tape comes in this many colors, because we didn't. Secondly, knowing this, Glasgow, Scotland-based artist Jim Lambie transforms spaces by turning the floors into geometric mazes of color bursts and visual stimulation.
