CD Mosaics by Mirco Pagano & Moreno De Turco
Mosaics of famous musicians created out of their own albums. Around 6500 CD’s were collectively used for all the images and the effect is outstanding. They were created for an anti piracy campaign and the full set can be seen here.
Beili Liu - The Mending Project (2011)
“…Hundreds of Chinese scissors suspended from the ceiling in a shimmery cloud. The piece involved the artist sitting at a small black table, hand-mending patches of fabric together which visitors were encouraged to cut themselves near the entrance. As the performance continued, the piece grew as one continuous cloth and lay spread on the floor.
The hovering mass of the downward-pointed scissors represent the distant fear and looming violence present in today’s cultural climate. The sharp blades above the artist are put in contrast by the silent and simple act of mending. The dichotomous result of the instant fear superimposed with the calming effect of the sewing created a surreal atmosphere in the room.”
