I totally adore this concept.
In The House Party, Ohanesian continues his exploration of architecture and place, faithfully creating a spatially accurate, quintessentially American suburban home, which he displaces from its native suburban landscape by reconstructing it within the walls of the Boiler, a repurposed urban-industrial space currently functioning as a contemporary art gallery. The House is then opened up to the public for a house party on the opening night of the exhibition. In this at once creative and destructive act, the artist enlists the audience to provide the final element of the work itself, giving each viewer the unique opportunity to physically leave his or her own scar on the House, by partying within it throughout the evening.
Pretty installations all made of plastic debris, excess packaging and junk mail by Aurora Robson.
Fluffy White Clouds
"The fluffy white clouds are summoned up temporarily using a fog machine, creating a surreal experience in the middle of a room. Smilde has created his clouds inside different types of locations, ranging from corridors and hallways, to bedrooms and common spaces."
Berndnaut Smilde is making my mind explode.
I'm a huge fan of David's blade installations. You can see his work in person at Post 27 and Intelligentsia here in Chicago. Or check out his site.

Wow-house is a group show featuring visual artists reinterpreting their esthetic through object-based mediums such as furniture and the decorative arts. The pieces are coming down off the wall and entering the physical space for interaction and function. Anchored by the unique furniture design of Eric Johnson (Thistle Objects), this show promises to reinvent the notion of the household vernacular and showcase the selected artists within a context that they are exploring for the first time at Johalla Projects. This is not a genre or a movement. This is Wow-house.
I'm feeling very inspired by Kay Rosen's work right now. Above installation is my favorite. Browse more of her beautiful work here.
Strings of Color
Did you hear that sound? That was my mind exploding.
An amazing piece by Gabriel Dawe
Evol in the trenches
I've been an admirer of Evol’s photo-realistic stencil work both on scrap cardboard and out in the environment for quite some time. But this recent installation in a 5ft deep trench in Hamburg, Germany really blows my mind.
