Whether you are a lover of contemporary art or not, there is no doubting the visual impact of art installations. These forms of art can either be permanent or temporary.
As for the purpose of these art installations, they tend to be used as an alternative to more traditional modern art. In this respect, viewers are able to enter, move around, and interact with it in a way not possible with paintings and sculptures.
Today at Apple [AR]T Walk
Apple is teaming up with New York’s New Museum on an art-based augmented reality project.
Launching on 10 August and running until at least the end of the year, ten people at a time, with an iPhone, the [AR]T app and headphones, will be lead by an Apple team member in each city around six interactive displays or pieces, each lasting five to ten minutes.
Joana Vasconcelos has incorporated patterns from her own astrological chart into the design of the modern artwork, which comprises 11,366 hand-painted and glazed tiles crafted using traditional methods at a 100-year-old factory in the artist’s native Portugal.
Every available surface of the structure has been clad in mirror, both absorbing and reflecting the verdant surrounds, while the interiors offer a kaleidoscopic perspective. Doug Aitken’s art installation will be staying for many seasons, until January 2021.
