Metalmorphosis Sculpture

Metalmorphosis Sculpture by David Cerny

“Metalmorphosis” by Czech artist David Cerny is a 30 foot tall stainless steel sculpture of a giant head in Charlotte, North Carolina. The 14 ton sculpture (and fountain) is divided into horizontal slices that slowly rotate out of sync with one another (as seen in this video by Ferris Photography).

Bonus:  Streams

Bronze peeing statues made by David Cerny at the entrance of the Franz Kafka Museum in Prague. 

 

“The stream of water writes quotes from famous Prague residents.

Visitors can interupt them by sending SMS message from mobile phone to a number, displayed next to the sculptures. The living statue then ‘writes’ the text of the message, before carrying on as before.”

Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow

55928a43b376fb6bf4c6c509b5bfb9fb

Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow, a newish film directed by Sophie Fiennes, lets you sit back and watch the German artist Anselm Kiefer at work, creating his large-scale “world of ruination.” The film has no narration, only some musical accompaniment. And, more than anything, it gives you a direct, unembellished view of Kiefer’s “alchemical creative process” that regularly takes over his studio in southern France. Above, Kiefer puts the finishing touches on, then raises, one of his elaborate creations. The clip, along with others, appears in a larger, more compelling format on the film’s official web site

MÖBIUS – Federation Square
A collaborative stop motion sculpture

Twenty-one large triangles animated by Melbourne, throughout Federation Square. MÖBIUS is a sculpture that can be configured into many cyclical patterns and behave as though it is eating itself, whilst sinking into the ground. The result is an optical illusion and a time-lapse of people 
interacting with the sculpture and moving through Melbourne’s landmark location throughout the day.

MÖBIUS was animated over two weeks Friday, Saturday & Sunday between the 6th – 20th of May 2011.

“I conceived of this piece when I first moved to Manhattan,” she says. “I was a bit startled by the power of the curators and the critics and how they all had an anti-figure slant on what they deemed show-worthy. So many of these people felt like everything figurative had already been done, and real art was about being a ‘Visionary’ rather than just showing ability, accuracy or general talent. Thus, the figure had generally disappeared from galleries, museums, important collections, art fairs and other shows. The few of us that were left, had no place to exhibit and our voice was not being heard. Many figurative sculptors started teaching, as though that was all they could do.

“If I wanted to stay in the fine art field, I knew I had to join my contemporaries and make ‘contemporary’ art. I knew that it was time to let go of all the finely-tuned skills I had acquired over the years, and just trust in the process of making art. The art world was telling me I had to break down my foundation, let my walls crumble, expose myself completely, and from there I will find the true essence of what I needed to say. 

“So, literally, I took a perfectly good wax sculpture – a piece I had sculpted with precision over several months – an image of a woman meditating in the lotus position, and just dropped it on the floor. I destroyed what I made. I was letting it all go. It was scary. It shattered into so many pieces. My first feeling was, ‘What have I done!?!’ Then, I trusted it would all come together like I envisioned.

“We cast all the pieces in bronze and assembled the pieces so they floated apart from one another. Then I brought in a lighting specialist and we built a crazy lighting system to make it glow from within. It turned out even better than I thought. And the best is that the image of Expansion means so much to so many who see it. I get letters every day! I feel like I really did my job successfully!”

Karakuri

Japan has always been on the forefront of cutting edge robotics. Its roots can be traced back 200-300 years during the Edo period when skilled craftsmen created automata (self-operating machines). Using nothing more than pulleys and weights they were able to make the Karakuri (Japanese automata) perform amazing tasks.

Japan’s modern day robots can be traced back to the Karakuri. Today Hideki Higashino is one of the few remaining craftsmen who is determined to keep the history and tradition of Japanese Karakuri alive.
