For her entry into the biannual Sculpture by the Sea in Aarhus, Denmark, Swedish artist Susanna Hesselberg installed this ominous library that plumments into the ground like a mining shaft. While visually arresting, the piece has a somewhat somber intention. Titled “When My Father Died It Was Like a Whole Library Had Burned Down,” the artwork makes reference to lyrics from Laurie Anderson’s song World Without End. The piece joins an additional 55 sculptures on display right now at the 2015 Sculpture by the Sea through July 5, 2015. (via Hyperallergic)

Woodland Critter Mobile

by toni

IMG_1049.JPG

I made this woodland themed mobile for some friends of mine who just had a kid! The animals are porcupine, black bear, squirrel, red fox, barn owl, and lynx/bobcat. The leaf shapes used for accents are maple and tulip tree in medium brown, poplar and oak in dark brown, and walnut (leaflet) and dogwood in golden brown.

You can see, they’re essentially little felt sandwiches! The bobcat has spots done in ink.IMG_1048.JPG IMG_1050.JPG
