When, I’m struggling to get in the creative groove, I need something for my senses to feast on, whether it be images, writing, or music. Today was such a morning. I remembered an art installation link shared on Facebook by a fellow artist, and figured now was a good time to hit it up. And, it didn’t visually disappoint.
Unfortunately, the original article did not cite credit to the artists of the installations highlighted, a major faux pas. I decided it would be honorable to the artists, and also educational for me, to make the effort to do a little further research. Therefore, why not start with the first, “Inversion House” by the artists, Havel and Ruck.
“Installation art describes an artistic genre of three-dimensional works that are often site-specific and designed to transform the perception of a space.” (Wikipedia)
There is something about creative construction on such a large scale that leaves me intrigued, inspired, and left craving. A mere human courageously attempting to challenge something impossible. In these works, the so called “transformation of the perception of space” had me mystified in minutes and emboldened to now enter my studio to just… play.
“Only those who attempt the absurd will achieve the impossible. I think it’s in my basement… let me go upstairs and check.”
