For ten days in a Pierogi Gallery space in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, artists Ward Shelley and Alex Schweder lived in “a giant hamster wheel,” a large installation called In Orbit. From Animal New York

This is the fourth collaboration between Shelley and Schweder in a series they call “The Social Relationship Architecture Project.” Each time they’ve built a different dwelling space that requires them to work together in order to live. This time, they’ve arranged the various components and furnishings of a home on a giant wheel. “In Orbit is a two bedroom apartment, in a sense,” Schweder says. “One is on the inside and one on the outside.”

In the archives: more art installationsmore architecture and more wheels, including the Event of a Thread, la casa ecológica de botellas, and the unusual Dynasphere.

Ultraviolet Thread Art

David Ogle‘s thread art installations seem to glow right out of the space from which they emanate.  His work is mainly constructed with thread illuminated by ultraviolet light.  However, Ogle’s installations are not only built of the thread, but the space they emphasize and the light itself. The artist states:

“ Much of my work to date has dealt with exploring notions of materiality, of permanence and of the perception of objects in space. Using light as a sculptural medium, my work is innately ephemeral.”

Degenerative Cubism afflicts 12% of Spanish cattle. If the disease were ever to become airborne, it’s estimated that all beef cattle in the country would be little more than a few lines leaving the impression of cattle within one month.
A realism vaccine was developed in 1994 but has occasional surrealist side effects, turning 2% of cattle injected into two arguing mimes and a waffle.

Earthshine Featuring the Six-Legged Wolf

As part of her current exhibition titled Earthshine at Gallery Wendi Norris, Japanese artist Tomoko Konoike explores various crystal structures in sculptures and drawings.

Among one of her most stunning works is the amazing six-legged wolf wrapped in mirror shards titled Donning Animal Skins and Braided Grass. The wolf is now extinct in the artist’s native Japan, but is figured prominently as a spiritual symbol in much of her art. The exhibition runs through October 26, 2013.
