Posting is light around these parts lately. Partly due to the mid-August doldrums that seem to ground the entire world of culture to a halt, partly due to jury duty having stalled the first half of my week and thus throwing the second half of my week into disarray. So in the meantime I direct you to Gravestmor, who gives us this shot of the artist Nike Savvass's piece Atomic: full of love, full of wonder. Gravestmor describes the piece, which is currently on view at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Australia:
Suspended polystyrene balls held in place on nylon wire fill the room in a rough grid, running though the spectrum from reds to blues up the room with a few rogue orange balls escaping their hue, bubbling up into the cooler tones.
Occasionally a set of industrial fans blow the whole thing into a jittery field of wobbling uncertainty. Like most things the balls soon reach thier natural frequency and begin bobbing in time, like a matrix of nervous junkies.
