First off, lets cover what exactly an installation is. An installation is: the action or process of installing someone or something, or of being installed, a large piece of equipment installed for use, an art exhibit constructed within a gallery (definition from my handy dandy mac dictionary). Art installations are often commissioned or bought as public art for parks and around cities. With this in mind, lets look at some super neat installations (i tend to gravitate towards installations that use multiples of the same item, my eyes can't help it...they're just so neat to look at!!!!)
yellow pencils cut into hundreds..no thousands of pieces!
made from toothpicks! By Tara Donovan
Here are some not so conceptual installations that can be translated into ideas for your home
Simple frame installation
globes on the ceiling!
small chairs on the walls. So unique and interesting. This is definitely not everyones style but I appreciate the boldness.
Yes, even a collection of photos can be an installation. Be creative and crazy when arranging them!
And I couldn't forget our very own installation! Designed by me and produced by Nathan and our hard working friends. I loved the visual statement it made.
