Normality is so over-rated. Oddness attracts us. Well, me anyway. Not necessarily odd/bizarre… though that can be cool too. More usually just a little bit out of phase with everything else. Seeing things everyone else sees… but seeing it in a different way. Like a cracked pavement for example. An eyesore? Or an opportunity for some artistic expression?
Here’s three different art collections around concrete (or its failure).
Artist Juliana Santacruz Herrera beautified the broken and cracked streets of Paris with colourful yarn. Check out the whole deal here: Project Pothole – Honestly WTF.
Artist Jan Vormann uses Lego to similar effect to repair damaged walls. More here: Dispatchwork – Honestly WTF.
For the more literal-minded amongst us, Portland cement available here. Ah – but is it art?
What about ‘Cement Eclipses’ by Isaac Cordal then?
