Been doing a bit of research on various kinds of temporary art and thought I’d share some great stuff I have found so far! The first I’d like to share is the art of Jim Denevan.
Jim makes temporary drawings on sand, earth and ice that are eventually erased by waves and weather. The first time I saw Jim’s art, I instantly fell in love with it. It’s simple and complex at the same time. It inspires me to think in new ways. It reminds me to think both infinitely small and outrageously big in all that I do.. to stretch things to their limits.
Some of his pieces have such a large scope that they use vehicles to create the shapes.
This overlay shows the size comparison for the piece above.
Well, that is all for today. I hope his work inspires you to think in new ways about even the most ordinary of things!
