Instagram Fridays: Tomás Saraceno Cloud City

From the Metropolitan Museum of Art:

Artist Tomás Saraceno (born in Tucumán, Argentina, in 1973) has created a constellation of large, interconnected modules constructed with transparent and reflective materials for the Museum’s Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden. Visitors may enter and walk through these habitat-like, modular structures grouped in a nonlinear configuration. Over the past decade, Saraceno has established a practice of constructing habitable networks based upon complex geometries and interconnectivity that merge art, architecture, and science. The interdisciplinary project “Cloud Cities/Air Port City” is rooted in the artist’s investigation of expanding the ways in which we inhabit and experience our environment.

Instagram Fridays: Grand Central Terminal and Street Art

Yesterday, I enjoyed a wonderful evening with my friend Amy who I won’t see for a couple months because of my camp job.  While I was waiting for her, I took these pictures:

I wish someone would start a flash mob…

Later we walked the High Line and found some pretty cool street art:

Motivational Mondays: Keith Haring

The public needs art, and it is the responsibility of a “self-proclaimed artist” to realize the public needs art, and not to make bourgeois art for a few and ignore the masses…. If the public is afraid of art, should we [artists] be afraid of what we have done to make the public afraid of art?

– Keith Haring, journal entry, October 14, 1976

I featured Keith Haring this week because I was inspired by his show in the Brooklyn Museum. This quote made me think of how we, as creative people, can reach and inspire others with our talents.
