ALBORAYA PALMARET

alboraya-palmaret train station

Subways, train-stations and airports provide an amazing opportunity for art to seize the attention of locals and visitors alike. It might not strike immediately, but in those quiet moments while waiting to board, these structures quietly remind you how beautiful they are. Recently, Rstudio completed their work on the Alboraya-Palmaret Train Station in Valencia, Spain. The modern structure contains ample green space, brilliant use of lighting and a sophisticated execution of minimalism. The entire structure is artfully considered. Everything works.

JR’s Inside Out Project is an inspiring movement empowering individuals to transform messages of personal identity into artwork.

WASTE LANDSCAPE

wastelands

While Apple and Spotify move your music to the cloud, they’re also leaving behind seas of neglected CDs. Artist Elise Morein and Clémence Eliard created a phenomenal installation at the Halle D’Aubervilliers in Paris entitled Waste Landscape. Together, with a team of dedicated volunteers, they organized and connected 65,000 CDs by hand to create a series of dunes or reflective waves. It looks beautiful, but it also reminds us how fast technology moves. Waste Landscape will be on show until September 10th. They have plans to take the exhibit around the world. At its conclusion they’re going to recycle the CDs into polycarbonate. Click Read More for a closer look.

THE POWER OF SWOON

swoon new orleans

We’re huge fans of Swoon’s work. Her depictions of women and children convey emotions that are both intense and calm at the same time. Whenever we see her work it really draws us in. Currently Swoon has an exhibition at The New Orleans Museum of Art. It’s on display until September 25th. There, they transformed the Great Hall to display Swoon’s large scale Thalassa. Named after the Greek goddess of the sea and inspired by the connection between New Orleans and the sea, the strategically positioned 20 foot installation hangs majestically from the ceiling. Its impact is heighten with multicolored fabric extending out from beneath to represent tentacles rising from the waters, making it seem as though she is floating over you. If you find yourself in New Orleans anytime soon we highly recommend visiting the exhibit.

YORKSHIRE SCULPTURE PARK

yorkshire sculpture park

We were first introduced to the work of Barcelona’s Jaume Plensa when we visited Millenium Park in Chicago. The Crown Fountain is brilliant. The large faces, the reflecting pool, the summer – it all fell into place and his exhibit easily became a favorite of ours and many other park-goers. Now, Plensa makes his way to Wakefield, England to create a dreamscape exhibit for Yorkshire Park. His large scale sculptures are beautifully placed throughout the park adding a bit of surrealism to the area. Click Read More to view.
