“Korean sculptor Park Chan Girl constructs metal sculptures from thin metal layers he calls “sliced images” that resemble three dimensional topography charts. He also meticulously welds thousands of small steel nuts into a delicately textured skin, moulding it into human and animal forms.” via whudat.de Who would’ve thought steel could look this graceful?
Park has a BFA in Sculpture from Chungnam National University and an MFA in Fine Arts from KyungHee University. He has exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions across Korea and China.
Just how amazing are these paper and wire sculptures by Polyscene are?

I found an artwork that perfectly combines my two greatest passion: sculpture and literature in an art form called Typographic Sculpture. Taking inspiration from old signage letters, vintage letterpress printing type, the artist, June Corley, who is also an art director and graphic designer, cleverly crafted these animated sculptures. What I like even more is that these sculptures have friendly faces that warm your heart. View more of her work here

KALEIDOSCOPE OF MOVING WEB
Next time you arrive at San Fransisco International Airport, esp in T2, don’t forget to take a few moment to admire this breathing sculpture by Jane Echelmean. You’re lucky if you got to witness it at night, coz you get to see the beautiful kaleidoscope of moving web… I haven’t seen it myself yet, but from the video, it’s already very amazing…. If you live too far to see the sculptures, take a look at the video, it’s very inspiring… I love stories about ordinary people who creates extraordinary things, from ordinary materials (of course combines with technologies, but the core idea is very genuine! It’s something that will make you think “why did I never think about that?”
And now, why does it called a “breathing sculpture” Read on the excerpt from her website
“During the day, sun streams through the skylights to cast real shadows that interplay with the fictional shadows in the floor. At night, the artist’s program of colored lighting makes the sculpture glow from indigo to purple, magenta to red-orange. Computer-programmed mechanized air-flow animates the fluidly-moving sculpture at different intervals throughout the day, as if the wind could magically flow through solid walls.”

Apparently, my obsession to see the Terraccota Warrior can come true since I only need to make travel to Singapore instead of China now. The exhibition will be held in Asian Civilisations Museums, Singapore from now until October 16th 2011, showcasing over 100 objects! I am still halfway reading the book and my amazement still hasn’t ceased on the concept and determination of one man to build such terraccota empire. I will post the synopsis of the book soon.
