Ocean Parts by Koby Sibony

 

Ocean Parts by Israeli designer Koby Sibony, is a series of sculptures created from a combination of plastic pieces collected from the beach and metal wire. I love the playfulness and crafty aspects of these creations – particularly the remote control cars and radio. These bring me back to my youth, when I would collect sticks and stones and other debris and make them into creative playthings (kids, this is what we did before the Internet). And thanks to Koby for helping clean up the shorelines!

Artists all have their processes, I included. Brazilian artist, Luca Simoes invited an intimate assortment of friends for a unique photo shoot. He asked each of his subjects to divulge a secret, providing opportunity to capture their expressions. He then asked each to suggest a song for him to listen through his headphones as he photographed them. Last he asked if their secret had a color, which would form the color scheme. Choosing 10 of the images to alter he began his rendering. The process involves cutting and layering each image up to ten times. The result are intriguing. See for yourself.

All ephemeral, lasting a few weeks or maybe just a few hours, temporary street art installations are a colorful and engaging addition to ever-evolving urban settings. Some are so subtle that only the most observant of urban residents even notice them, like little sculptures of men in puddles; others are impossible to ignore, like 30-foot cardboard statues looming over the street. Some of these sculptural installations are officially commissioned while many more are stealthily assembled, guerrilla-style. Shocking, fun and often interactive, these 14 works bring art to the masses rather than cooping it up in museums.
