Otherness | Misc. Projects of the Week

Otherness this week focuses on the physical presence of abandoned, transitional and wilderness spaces through ethereal/awe quality sculptures. Simple, primal, powerful.

NIMBUS & CUMULUS
drawing on a nebulous concept of the "physical presence of transitional spaces," visible only for a few minutes and experienced through documentation and photography
BIG AIR PACKAGE
by Christo
the largest inflated frameless envelope and the most expansive indoor sculpture fills the interior of a former gas tank, amplifying the ethereal quality of the space with diffused light 

ROCK ON TOP OF ANOTHER ROCK
placed near the entrance of the Serpentine Gallery, the sculpture consists of two large granite boulders seemingly balanced one on top of the other at 18 ft tall; it materializes the pair's lifelong obsession with stability/instability and counterpoints
