Most Admired Art Installations of All Time
1. Real Life Transformer
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.
3. The Fallen
4. 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.
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
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
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
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.
