A Car Full Of Gas

June 22nd, 2009

“A Car Full Of Gas” is the latest installation by Ariel Schlesinger. He placed 2 large tanks filled with cooking gas in an old Mini Cooper and drilled a small hole in the passengers window. Then he opened those tanks and lit the gas escaping through a small tube in that drilled hole. Crazy.
If you liked this one, you should also see his Similar But Fundamentally Different installation.

Cai Guo-Qiang

June 18th, 2009

Cai Guo-Qiang is a very well known Chinese artist, I guess you know his installation Head On. Beside huge installations, he also makes these works with gunpowder. He has a certain amout of control about the outcome of the explosions, but a large part is uncertain. I think this is quite exiting.
These pieces remind me of Rosemarie Fiore, her work is just a little more colorful.

Fire Tagging by Ellis G

April 12th, 2009

Ellis Gallagher is a New York street artist who likes to set his tags on fire. Burn baby, burn!
Of course this isn’t a new graffiti style. Daniel Gonzalezo his pieces are actually even more impressive. But if you’re in LA, you can go an see the work of Ellis Gallagher at the Hollowood show at the Carmichael Gallery till the end of April. It is actually a group show of the Neo-Con Collective (Ellis Gallagher, Aakash Nihalani and Poster Boy) and Zeus.
I would go if I could.

On

March 26th, 2009

“On” by Aram Bartholl is not your average way to lit a candle.

A resistance wire, similar to one in a classic light bulb, is wound into a spiral and slipped over the wick of the candle. Both ends are soldered to copper wire which leads down to the switch which is fixed by a cable tie to the candle. The switch controls a 12 V power transformer. The resistance wire glows up very briefly before the heat breaks the metal. The candle is lit.
