Have you ever wanted to feeling of figuratively falling into an installation? The optical illusions that Brazil-born Regina Silveira creates are quite astounding, making the viewer and gallery visitor become an active participant in the installation. The designs are simple, but the impact is stunning.

Evol was recently in Warsaw, Poland transforming everyday urban objects into miniature city landscapes. This newest piece is an apartment building with a flock of butterflies swarming it, incorporating old tags that previously existed on the small space. Plenty of detail in this piece including the window blinds and satellite dishes.

A great idea from Benedetto Bufalino and Benoit Deseille. In conjunction with the Festival of Trees and Lights in Geneva, Switzerland, the artists collaborated on a string light installation using Pac Man characters. The light effect recreated the chase of the ghosts and the infamous arcade character, Pac Man.

We have covered the work of Denmark's Huskmitnavn on the site and in the magazine before, and he is always busy with numerous projects and exhibitions going on at once. Currently, there is a large exhibition of Huskmitnavn's work at the Kos Museum in Denmark, spanning the many styles and mediums that the Copenhagen artist is known for. Nothing makes you smile like a good Husk sculpture. Remember, Huskmitnavn = RememberMyName.

Mark Wallinger has a lengthy record of major exhibitions and accomplishments, which is no surprise when looking at the British artist's current exhibition at the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead, England. Small rounded beach stones have always grabbed our attention with their random, unique shape and beauty.

Photo montage and collage have the inherent power to juxtapose and arrange strange and foreign subjects creating new associations from unlikely pairings, a re-occuring motivation and end goal for artist's working in this medium. The result from this process is usually a variety of relationships that are telling of particular aspects of the given subjects.

“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.
