“Another intriguing part of our trip to Detroit came via a presentation from artist/incurable romantic Jonathan Brand. To pay for an engagement ring, he was forced to sell a 1969 Ford Mustang he had spent years restoring, but even marital bliss couldn’t wrench his thoughts away from the car he had loved and lost. So he set about recreating it in painstaking detail, using paper and a colour printer, working from the memories of his beloved vehicle. The results are staggering in terms of technical prowess, accuracy and the emotional pull of the final piece – the paper acting as a metaphor for the fragility of love for cars and/or people.” – via it’s nice that Read the rest of this entry »

‘During the 1960s and 70s, thousands of monuments commemorating the Second World War – called ‘Spomeniks’ – were built throughout the former Yugoslavia; striking monumental sculptures, with an angular geometry echoing the shapes of flowers, crystals, and macro-views of viruses or DNA. In the 1980s the Spomeniks still attracted millions of visitors from the Eastern bloc; today they are largely neglected and unknown, their symbolism lost and unwanted. Antwerp-based photographer Jan Kempenaers travelled the Balkans photographing these eerie objects, presented in this book as a powerful typological series. The beauty and mystery of the isolated, crumbling Spomeniks informs Kempenaer’s enquiry into memory, found beauty, and whether former monuments can function as pure sculpture.’

“The Traffic Light tree was created by French sculptor Pierre Vivant following a competition run by the Public Art Commissions Agency. It is situated on a roundabout near Canary Wharf, at the junctions of Heron Quay Bank, Marsh Wall and Westferry Road, in one of London’s financial districts. In 2005, Saga Motor Insurance commissioned a survey asking British motorists about the best and worst roundabouts in the country. The Traffic Light tree was the clear favourite, with it’s 8 metres tall and containing 75 sets of lights.” via – recyclart
