In my job I do come across some really cool stuff from time to time.


According to it’s creators, “Bubble is an adaptable spatial pneumatic installation at an urban scale.” The artwork is essentially a space filled with large fabric bubbles that rise and fall, and inflate and deflate based on the movement of people within the space.

Helmick + Schechter have also done some very cool large-scale work. They’ve got a couple of pieces here in NC – one is a mobile at the NC Museum of Art, another was very recently installed at the Charlotte Mecklenburg Courthouse called Persistence of Vision. The sculpture is programmed for continual change, and each week a unique large macro portrait of a different community member will begin to form. The large portrait is comprised of hundreds of tiny bronze cast portraits of Charlotte citizens.

Persistence of Vision

The Exquisite Corpse is another one of my favorites. If you ever played the game growing up you know the reference. The art is composed of colorful stained-glass panels illustrating twice-life-size cross-sections of human anatomy
