The Most Out-Of-The-Box Installations You May Not Know About

December 26, 2021 Share

These Are Five Incredible Sculptures And Installations You Won’t Believe Exist. Welcome to the immersive world of art.

Art has for thousands of years been a powerful way of conveying meaning, provoking thought and displaying aesthetically pleasing imagery. Many artists express conventional styles, but the ones that develop new styles and techniques that are subjectively the most intriguing.

From fully immersive experiences to surprisingly simple yet practical designs, mesmerizing statements somehow give us comfort in this unprecedented world.

Alexander Calder – Primary Motions

Of course, let us not forget about the master of installation and inventor, Alexander Calder. He was one of the greatest notable artists of the 20th century. 

The American-born icon bridged the gap between artists and sculpture by occupying a variety of different rules in the creation of a statue in the period over several decades.

Heavily inspired by Piet Mondrian, the idea of early modernism inspired him to bring these block forms and compositions to life.

Now more than ever, artists worldwide are creating immersive and out-of-the-box art pieces that are interactive and often take the viewer to activate the pieces.

Vincent Van Gogh – Starry Night

From Vincent Van Gogh’s immersive experience to Yayoi Kusama’s infinity rooms, the way we see and experience art is changing.

Now, more than ever, it is a space where the public can come and interact and share moments within a particular environment. Here are five of the most out-of-the-box art pieces:

The Face-time Sculpture

Imgur

This is the image of a well known Romanian poet named Mihai Eminescu. There are several ways to make a sculpture, which becomes very clear when we see what’s done in the Monument to the poet in Onesti, Romania. 

The Medusa Installation

Design Week

Japanese Architect Sou Fujimoto created a new virtual installation for the 2021 London design festival. Visitors to the structure can put on a pair of mixed-reality sets of glasses and explore the experimental forms.

Once they do, the room’s ceiling becomes home to a striking suspended mixed reality structure.

The team built the AR structure at Fujimoto’s Japanese atelier, while Tin Drum’s Yoyo Munk directed the experience as a whole. 

The main inspiration for the project was the interrelation between nature and art.

The Relaxing In The Tub (The Bather) Installation

Welcome to the most enormous bath in the world. Artist Oliver Foss created this sculpture using foam and steel. At 13 feet high and 99 feet long, this beautiful sculpture called The Bather is seen here in the Innen Alster, Hamburg. 

She was a significant attraction for many people for ten days straight.

Superblue Miami

Link Construction Group

This immersive art centre opened in May of 2021 in Miami, Florida. This full-body – and mind – experience allows viewers to traverse through Es Devlin’s mirrored labyrinth and then lets themselves be devoured by a light-based work from James Turrell. 

Happy Go Lucky Installation

Untapped

This New York installation piece at 32 Mercer Street aims to spread happiness, confidence, and positivity to all its guests. 

Presented by Sunny hues Entertainment, the pop-up interactive exhibit returned to New York City and opened from June 23rd to August 18th, 2021.

“It uses multimedia experiences to help you feel like your royalty,” claims Dandelion Chandelier. You can expect a colourful kaleidoscope room, a palace made of diamonds, and a room that recreates your first encounter with the sea.

Even though the technology is helping bring art to life through a digital wonderland enabling immersive interactions to reform our human experiences, installations and sculptures will forever remain a form of expression.
