Installation Art

Contemplation and drawing inspiration from other artists.

Appeal of Installtion Pieces:
  • impermanence
  • mirroring life's constant ability to change
  • no foundation allows the eye to imagine the piece flowing beyond the space it fills
  • does not truncate the piece
  • is not static
  • defy typical expectations
  • organic form; flow
  • separate units making up the larger piece representing the idea that no two things are exactly alike
  • transform the perception on space
  • broader sensory experience
  • space and time are often the only dimensional constants
  • applying the dissolution of the line between art and life
Other thoughts:
  • a piece that is a loose representation of a concrete object
  • imagery
  • state of total artistic immersion
Artists the wonderful Adrienne Callander recommended to look at:

 Dan Steinhilber

Louise Bourgeois
