Brent Christensen's Ice Castles

Street Art // Friday, March 01, 2013
Constructed entirely out of Ice with no supporting substructure, these Ice Castles by artist Brent Christensen are incredible examples of what the majority of public art is, Ephemeral. With the help of 20 or so crew members, Christensen builds these structures by forming self-made icicles that require millions of gallons of water. Some reach a height of 25 feet and contain stairs, archways, tunnels, and can be illuminated at night with multi-colored LED lights.

Do Ho Suh's "Karma" installation at NOMA

Street Art // Wednesday, February 27, 2013
The extraordinary Korean installation artist, Do Ho Suh, has managed to create a giant H.R. Giger-looking alien tail out of 98 men standing on top of each other, with each figure covering each other’s eyes. Resemblances of a spinal cord also come to mind. Made from stainless steel, “Karma” was recently installed in the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at the New Orleans Museum of Art. At 23 feet tall bending to the sky, this piece is a must to see in person if you live in New Orleans.

Just the other day we were questioning where Sam3 had been and why the silence from an artist whose work we thoroughly enjoy?
