Juxtapoz // Monday, June 11, 2012
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.

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 11, 2012
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.

"Floating" Wire Sculptures by David Oliveira

Juxtapoz // Saturday, June 09, 2012
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 @ The National Portrait Gallery Museum, Washington, DC

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 06, 2012
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.

The Bookyard: An Outdoor Public Library by Massimo Bartolini

Juxtapoz // Saturday, June 02, 2012
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.

String Installations by Sebastien Preschoux

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 31, 2012
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.

Geometric Tape Floors by Jim Lambie

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 29, 2012
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.

Legos for Qubic Tax

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 25, 2012
In 2012, it is not easy to convince people to do anything if there isn't some sort of comedic or clever push to demonstrate why in fact you should do it. I don't drive a KIA unless Blake Griffin is stretching it out in their commercials. Get it? Well Qubic, a company specializing in "providing tax solutions to clients throughout the UK," took this notion and used 1200 LEGO characters to demonstrate the wide-ranging amount of people united in their "duty to pay taxes."

Here at Juxtapoz HQ we were incredibley sad that were not able to make the opening of Tom Sachs' newest exhibtion Space Program: Mars.
