RUN, an Olympic Park Installation by Monica Bonvicini

Monica Bonvicini created this awesome typographic art installation for the 2012 London Olympics. This is the largest standalone artwork on the olympic park, made of three nine-metre tall letters that form the word “RUN”. The letters are made of mirrored glass and mirrored stainless steel.

“In daylight, the letters will act as a mirror for visitors and reflect their surroundings, and at night the letters will become more transparent and glow with complex internal LED lighting.”

Drawn Pink by Anne Lindberg

Anne Lindberg’s recent work essentially redefines space using thread.  Bordering the definintion of architecture and sculpture, Lindberg allows color and light to manipulate the hundreds of millimeter-thick strands to create a web – a three-dimensional volume affixed to the architecture.  Each of her pieces is specific to the place in which it is situated, no two identical based on the architecture, its lighting conditions and the space’s use.  The pieces are architectural in so far as they are “contextual and integral to the space”, she says.

Sarpi Border Checkpoint by J. Mayer H.

Shit happens.

I don’t want to be impolite, but that’s the first thing I though when I saw the pictures of the new Sarpi Border Chekpoint building in Turkey by J. Mayer H.. Seriously, I loved the Metropol Parasol project… but this one is totally out of my scope. What’s the concept ? A morphing barbapapa sculpture of parapets and balconies ? A retro wavy post modern trip ? It looks more like the caricature of the architect’s curvy signature.
