Most Admired Art Installations of All Time


Posted on : April 23, 2015 Author : alonl
Art installations are among the most interesting artworks that every person can readily appreciate. Needless to say, these works explicitly show its artist’s creative imagination. A few of the most admired art installations of all time are as follows:

1. Real Life Transformer

Real Life Transformers

French artist Guillaume Reymond may just be the biggest fan of the Transformers yet. He brought together 18 different kinds of vehicles to come up with what he refers to as the ‘Real-Life Transformer’ art installation. This installation is best viewed from the sky, of course.

2. Intersections

Intersections

‘Intersections’ is a very interesting art installation from artist Anila Quayyum Agha of Pakistan, which is nothing more than a dramatic display of shadows using just a single light bulb. Her work is comprised of a wood cube with laser-cut patterns. When the cube is illuminated from the inside, it casts expansive lace-like geometrics onto the floors, ceilings, and walls around it.

3. The Fallen

The Fallen

The 9,000 human silhouettes of this art installation were created by Jamie Wardley and Andy Moss in honor of the International Peace Day. The silhouettes were created in memory of the WWII Normandy landing of June 6, 1944. The artists chose to do it to give tribute to the lives that were lost. And to remind the newer generations of the things that happen in the absence of peace.

4. From the Knees of My Nose to the Belly of My Toes

From the Knees of My Nose to the Belly of My Toes

Nice homes are always a beauty to behold. But not in this one crafted by British designer Alex Chinneck. More than just beauty, this one is a very interesting work of art. He took a four-story residence in Margate, England and designed its brick facade to look like it is sliding off the front side of the building. This eye-catching art installation took one full year to create.

5. Flame

Flames

Fluorescent bulbs were placed on top of each other in this art installation by Yochai Mato, a Tel Aviv-based artist. He particularly placed the bulbs in the middle of the forest to bring out the stark contrast between the natural surroundings and the man-made tubes.

6. Ocean Atlas

Ocean Atlas

Jason Decaires Taylor submerged 60-ton sculpture that he calls as the ‘Ocean Atlas’. Inspired by the Titan, his version was that of a local Caribbean youth looking through the ocean ceiling. This was the largest sculpture inserted into an underwater landscape.

7. Infinity Mirrored Room

Infinity Mirrored Room

This art installation composed of millions of multi-colored LED lights illuminating the floors to the ceilings is made by Yayoi Kusama. The effect? The room seems like it goes on for eternity. Kusama has created a very similar installation at the Tate Modern Museum, and another one at the Whitney Museum of Art, which he called as the ‘Fireflies on the Water’.

8. Door Installation

Door Installation

This dramatic door installation created by Shaun George at the North Grand Pre in Nova Scotia doesn’t fail to awe its audience. The doors were installed in the middle of a field and against the gorgeous blue horizon.
