The Environmental art of Christo and Jeanne claude

Street Art // Saturday, June 29, 2013
Coincidentally born on the same date, Christo and Jeanne Claude were prolific environmental artists whose projects took extensive time to complete and were always very large in scale. Often using fabric and rope to create their work, the two re-visualized the landscape making for a new esthetic impact. One of their last major works was the “The Gates” in New York City’s Central Park, which consisted of 7,503 vinyl "gates" along 23 miles. The two insisted that the purpose of their art was simply to bring joy and beauty and create new ways at looking at familiar landscapes.

Installation by Anya Sirota + AKOAKI in Amilly, France

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 28, 2013
Michigan-based design studio, Anya Sirota + AKOAKI created this great installation of two 30-feet large star sculptures in a defunct tannery in Amilly, France. As UR Design notes, "The project, titled Pop It Up, comes at a critical moment for the tannery complex. Come fall 2013, the site will be converted into a cultural art center. In its current state of coming-undone-ness, however, with its bared concrete structure and second-story wood flooring and windows removed, the surviving architecture offers exceptional opportunities for experimentation and interim engagement." Its Friday, we like sharing quotes.
