Day Dreaming

 I couldn't get this out of my head (no pun intended).

I seem to tune out a lot more often everyday. Must be senioritis or some other -itis disease.

Enjoy! More posts coming soon.

Fata Morgana

A meticulously created sculpture, this ship and ocean is formed from an optical illusion made by thousands of bead and other foreign objects. Approximately 1,600 cables are suspended in order to form this illusion. The title of the piece, "Fata Morgana", fittingly describes the mirage-like quality of this work.

The creators of this piece are Ralph Helmick and Stuart Shechter who collaborated in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida in order to create this sculpture. The materials used in the process were cast metals and stainless cables.

Update: Banners and A Singing Tree

Due to unforeseen complications, the banners will be posted at a later date. Some people are still finishing up their designs and it would be untimely to immediately begin posting until they are done as well.

Please bear with this delay until everyone has given the team a green light for posting.

Meanwhile, enjoy this beautiful metal creation...

This 3-meter tall structure can be seen overlooking a large range in Lancashire, England. Composed completely of galvanized steel pipes, the sculpture is capable of even playing music provided that a powerful breeze runs through the structure.

The architects of the "Singing Ringing Tree" are Mike Tonkin and Anna Liu, who created the sculpture for the East Lancashire Environmental Arts Network (ELEAN). It was made as one of four sculptures  for the Panopticons arts and regeneration projects.
