How to Bounce 2,000 Tennis Balls Without Bouncing Them

Juxtapoz // Saturday, March 03, 2012
Spanish artist, Ana Soler, created Causa-Efecto (Cause & Effect), where she suspended 2,000 tennis balls from string to appear as if following a path of bouncing through the Mustang Art Gallery in Alicante, Spain. One of the best exhibits we have seen of recreated and simulated motion we can think of.

A Tank of Thread by Jannick Deslauriers

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, February 28, 2012
We thought that we had posted the work of Montreal's Jannick Deslauriers on the site from this past Fall, where the artist create the fragile, large-format tank installation that was constructed and held together by black thread. We love how the artist takes a seemingly ruthless, powerful weapon of war and recreates with the most delicate of materials.

An Interview with Ela Boyd

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, February 15, 2012
Ela Boyd creates immersive installations that fragment and decentralize our understanding of space, time, and the self in reference to the subjective qualities of perception. Her installations have been on view at various spaces including the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego alongside the Pacific Standard Time exhibition Phenomenal. By choreographing the viewer’s experience, the installations involve the viewer in the space, reordering their understanding of common phenomena that are easily overlooked.

Glass Pills by Beverly Fishman

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, February 08, 2012
Pills being, sadly, such a centerpiece of our world, we have to admit these "addict" glass pills by Beverly Fishman are quite beautiful and, in a word, addictive. Ranging in size and style, Fishman has created installation work with her glass pill creations, some sprawled across the floor for added effect.

AirPort: An Open-Air Installation by Electroboutique

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, February 01, 2012
In 2009, Russian collective, Electroboutique created the public, open-air installation, AirPort, placing a departure flight kiosk in the middle of a forest. As the collective notes, the piece was a "poetic reflection on the possible ways of the urban civilization development. We are facing a choice: whether we should further sink our ferroconcrete teeth of architecture and transport system into the nature's body; or should we try to minimize our impact on it." Looks rather utopian to us.

Sebastian Verdon's Installation at Polyforum Siqueiros

Juxtapoz // Saturday, January 28, 2012
When done right, interactive installation art can be captivating and amazingly eye-opening as it brings into consciousness the many complex nuances of the relationship between art viewer and art object. One particular artist that comes to mind is Bruce Nauman. Nauman's various corridor installations manipulate and direct the viewer through an experience that will likely leave them with a fresh and widened perspective (assuming that the art viewer is open to such revelations)
